The founder of Human Design, Ra Uru Hu, passed away at his home on Ibiza Island on 12th March 2011.

With his Sun and Moon in Gate 51 – the Gate of Shock – we might have expected Ra to go suddenly, leaving everyone in a state of shock! I never met Ra, and I feel sad that now I have lost that opportunity. It’s quite a watershed moment for the global Human Design community. He was such a powerful paternal figure of authority and direction, and leaves a huge vacuum. I am so very interested to see how the community constellates itself in his absence. I know that many, many people who were inspired by Ra to discover better lives will be grieving deeply, as will his family. A true initiator, I’m sure he will be profoundly missed.
