In 1992, as Ra Uru Hu began training the first students of The Human Design System (HDS), the International Human Design School (IHDS) was founded.  After many years of experiments, experiences and evolution, the IHDS represents a landmark in Human Design Education.  As an extension of Ra Uru Hu and Jovian’s exclusive copyright for the Human Design System, Jovian Archive and the IHDS established the educational standards in 1992. 

The IHDS operates as part of the parent organization, Jovian Archive, Inc., and is responsible for setting and maintaining educational standards and materials for Human Design worldwide.  The IHDS is the official certifying agency and record keeper for all Human Design Professionals in the world.  In 2004, its founder, Ra Uru Hu, modified the educational standards, which are still in existence today.  These standards are held by the International Human Design School (IHDS) and the recognized licensed National Organizations.

In 2010, according to Jovian Archives legal rights, the International Human Design School was licensed to Lynda Bunnell, Director.  Her charter, through the direction of the founder, Ra Uru Hu, is to maintain the continuity of the IHDS and the Human Design educational standards.  The IHDS is licensed by Jovian as the central certifying school responsible for general and advanced education and teacher training. The IHDS holds the exclusive training and certifying rights for all teacher training, advanced training, including Differentiation Degree Program, DreamRave, BG5 Career and Business, OC16 training and certification, Rave Cosmologist Teacher training, Child Development, Family Practice Analyst, Holistic Analyst, and Sociology Degree certification.

The Human Design Standards Board is assigned by Jovian Archive and the IHDS, and is comprised of Loki Krakower-Riley, Jacqueline Ambuja Riley, and Lynda Bunnell.

Ra Uru Hu was a visionary and pioneer.  For 25 years he dedicated himself to impacting the world with The Human Design System, and held a very clear intention for the mission of the IHDS.  "Everything about my work in Human Design is about legitimizing it as a new science; it is a science.  It is not a new age fluffy educational program. In order to present it for what it is, and to establish it correctly in the world, we have to have a structured approach in the way that it is presented."  

He knew that he would not be around forever to oversee the proliferation of this knowledge, and therefore wisely established the IHDS so that the instructions he received for transmitting the knowledge would be carried out into the world while still maintaining the original frequency.  He said "The further the knowledge moves away from the original source, the more it will move away from its original intent."  The IHDS is dedicated to maintaining the original teachings, frequency, integrity and intention of The Human Design System. 

The IHDS has expanded its courses and faculty, and we now see the vision of the IHDS fully realized - a school dedicated to Human Design Education and staffed by an eclectic mix of highly trained Human Design Professionals from around the globe.  Here at the IHDS, international students and teachers come together to study, experiment and share their experience with The Human Design System.  We offer programs suitable to all levels of students and interests, from the Newcomer to the Professional, from general education to professional training.  

Human Design National Schools have been established world-wide as part of a unified community offering Human Design Education.  For a listing of the National Organizations, please click here.

Ra Uru Hu is the founder and Messenger of the Human Design System.

As part of his work as the messenger, Ra established the International Human Design School.  Visit his official site at www.jovianarchive.com for a wide range of self-study programs and digital books which are available to anyone interested in Human Design.

Ra Uru Hu, born Robert Allan Krakower, was the fourth child of a cultured, upper middle class family from Montreal, Canada.  He was surrounded by the arts and learned to express himself through music, an avocation he pursued until his death.  He completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Sir George Williams University, but his career path led him into the business world as an advertising executive, magazine publisher and media producer.  

One morning in 1983, he simply walked away from his family and fast-paced life as an entrepreneur - from life as he knew it - and "disappeared."  Several months later he found himself on the beautiful and temperate island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea off the eastern coast of Spain.  This 'Eden,' as he likes to call it, is where his 'real' life, his life as Ra Uru Hu, had its beginnings.

On the evening of January 3, 1987, he encountered the 'Voice'.  It was a terrifying experience.  The Voice said: "Are you ready to work?"  And for eight days and eight nights he worked, transcribing in detail what is now known as The Human Design System.  Ra speaks of the encounter as a wake-up call, an education which showed him how blind and ignorant his assumptions were about the nature of being, the cosmos and the way things work.

Ra considered himself the messenger of The Human Design System, now his legacy, and dedicated his life since the encounter to disseminating the Science of Differentiation around the world.  He settled, lived and worked in Ibiza where he enjoyed teaching, playing music, gardening and spending time with his wife, three children and his grandson.

Ra passed away in his home on March 12, 2011 at 5:40 AM, less than a month from his 63rd birthday.
