  • Hear from the Author
This book is an invitation to begin a new journey in your life. The beating heart of the Gene Keys Synthesis, this is the codebook describing all human states of consciousness, from the deepest fear-based patterns to the most awe-inspiring possibilities in our DNA. A vast work of vision and depth, this is a book to contemplate over a lifetime. It can be used in many different ways - as a companion to explain the Gene Keys in your Profile, as an oracle and daily inspiration or as a spiritual path in its own right. Many people have testified that simply reading this book brings them a profound understanding of their life, relationships and higher purpose. Written in a poetic yet practical style, the Gene Keys book points you towards the beauty that already lies inside you and invites you into a world where anything is possible. 534 pages. Also available as as audiobook

This has got to be one of the most important, breathtakingly comprehensive spiritual books ever written. Far more than a self-help book explaining one’s personal DNA codes with their shadows, gifts and enlightened potentials, (although it is that too! ) The Gene Keys is nothing less than a one volume history of the spiritual evolution and transformation of humanity, synthesizing ALL the great esoteric knowledge of humanity’s spiritual traditions and religions into one, vast comprehensible story that rings with the grace and glory of the deepest Truth all the way through. There really aren’t enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe the depth of the journey author Richard Rudd takes you on! A book to sip, savor, devour, study and return to again and again.


There is no other book that has carried me through life so well and catalyzed so many radical and subtle transformations of my being. This is rocket fuel for anyone on the path to self-realization. The wisdom is deep and wide and is always perfectly timed and placed in the context of my growth as a human. Also, the golden path program, is a remarkable framework to walk through this life with. If life came with a guide book this would be it. Truly a companion of companions. Thank you Richard. I am a more patient, aware and compassionate person because of my ongoing relationship with this work.


This book is a true classic. A profound masterpiece, igniting beautiful new/ancient/timeless wisdom back into our lived experience now. I have both the Kindle and hardcopy, so that I can refer easily back and forth to different chapters. Wish the book came in 64 little booklets so that it’s easy to bring one chapter to the park, or snuggle up in bed or in a bath with the one chapter at a time. Regardless this book is an indescribable gem of lifetimes. Highly Recommended!

This book is the type that comes around perhaps every five hundred years or so…

Richard Rudd, invites you to the waters of divinity. This is a personalized self-reflective Journey with beautiful and clear guideposts to help you be come the most conscious, aware and enlightened version of yourself.


By far, the finest map of Awakening I have ever read in my 40 years of inner journeying! The transmission through the words, or the spaces between them, are treasured downloads that will transform the reader into a better, more refined exponent of Reality. Sober, yet expressive of the highest potential of a human, this compassionate treatise embraces our humaness so completely just as it is. Simultaneously the author lifts us to the ultimate dignity of becoming Life Itself.


I’ve read a lot of New Age books over the years, and I firmly believe that the consciousness of the human race is evolving in a positive way, that said, I wasn’t quite prepared for a book as amazing as Gene Keys. Richard Rudd has made an incredible contribution to the new thought/new age movement. This book describes in great detail where we are heading in the future, how to reconcile where we’ve been and how to make the absolute best of where we are right now. Beyond any religious tradition, yet encompassing them all, this is a Zen masterpiece. There are many lofty concepts in this book that the author does a brilliant job of making accessible to anyone. Of the 534 pages in this book, there is not one that doesn’t say something important. This is a book to return to time and time again. There is a truly magical quality about working with the Gene Keys. There is a really good chance that while reading it, you may experience some rather shocking, mystical experiences. I’m not kidding, I was blown away. This book will stay on my shelf with the books I return to often. FTC Disclosure: I was given a review copy of this book by a representative of its publisher. I was not paid for my review, and my opinion is my own honest assessment of this work. This one is a classic.


If people read only the introduction, this book could still change the world!


The most influential book of my life. Not only does Richard Rudd bring the world of the mystics and science together in a beautiful revelation of life and its infinite mystery, his craft is sublime. He makes what could be complicated to read, almost effortless. I read and not only understand, I know. Thank you for bringing this into the world.


For fifty years I have read and reread the I Ching. Mr. Rudd has not merely retranslated or updated this ancient classic, he has absolutely transmuted it into a whole new form.

This will be everyone’s favorite coffee table book in another year or two, just like M. Scott Peck’s The Road Less Traveled. Most deservedly so!

The Art of Contemplation

  • Synopsis

  • Hear from the Author
This little book is a masterpiece of distilled wisdom. Poetic, refined and yet eminently practical, it introduces you to the technique at the core of the Gene Keys, and indeed of all paths towards wisdom. As the opening sentence states: 'There is no problem in your life that cannot be resolved through the Art of Contemplation’. This book shows you how to bring the magic of contemplation into every corner of your life, resulting in a deep sense of spaciousness, calm and clarity that is so rare in our modern world. A diamond of a book that you will turn to over and over again. Kindle edition now available.

The Art of Contemplation couldn’t have come along at a more appropriate time. Richard’s simple yet profound teaching on the art of the pause has allowed me to completely redesign my relationship with LA traffic. When I say this book has had a powerful impact on my life, I feel I’m barely scratching the surface of the potency of the reframe. While the book is beautifully and intelligently written, there is a marked simplicity to the text that allows for easy ingestion. While reading it, I felt inspired and emboldened to slow down, and to drop beneath the surface, and to engage life through a sort of sideways, moseying curiosity that allows for every moment to be a great, grand excavation of mystery and mojo. Lifestyle upgrades abound…

After now completing the Activation Sequence, I must say that the program has caused a new level of understanding. The “slow” way the program is built up, combining the understanding of the Activation sequence as such with the understanding of Gene Keys relevant to each step, has inevitably led to a revelation of new insight. Your use of text, audio and video has just been great! And the explanation of the line numbers to each of the Gene Keys has been extremely clarifying.  

The impact on my daily life has been immediate. In particular, I have gained a brand new understanding of how to apply the breakthrough part.

I’m deeply grateful to you, Richard, sharing this wisdom in the way you do.


This course has set me on fire.  It continues to be illuminating and I look forward to continued engagement, enjoying the adventure and the challenge.

We’d both like to extend our deepest gratitude for the Venus Sequence. We have been on one hell of a transformational journey, and the Venus Sequence has been our back bone, the magic it brings in resolving emotional/relationship tension is absolutely incredible. It offers the PERFECT framework for owning ones own side in the “dramas” and all the material necessary to process it efficiently and with as little fallout out as possible.
