The Delta is a game inspired by and powered by the Gene Keys. The Gene Keys are a Transformational Wisdom laid out over many years by Richard Rudd. There are a total of 64 Gene Keys, which are based on the Chinese I Ching. It is not necessary to know anything about the Gene Keys in order to play the Delta, although you will be contemplating 8 of the Gene Keys in this course as you move through your 8 week-long process. If you are interested in learning more about the Gene Keys, you may wish to explore the rest of this website.

The 4 Qualities of the Gene Keys Approach

The Gene Keys are based on Four Noble Qualities known as the Gene Keys Approach. These qualities also underpin the Delta process, creating a safe inner and outer space for transformation to occur. It is very important to be well grounded in these qualities and to do our best to embody them as we each play the Delta game.

  • Contemplation – taking full responsibility for one’s inner state, using everyday challenges for growth and transformation.  
  • Inquiry – asking the profound introspective questions, inviting wisdom to come from within. Cultivating a state of authentic presence in all situations. 
  • Gentleness – nurturing a kind and gracious approach towards self and others. Encouraging a spirit of unwinding and unlearning versus striving and fixing. 
  • Patience – cultivating compassion, honesty and curiosity with an inherent trust in the underlying process.

  • to use “I” statements and share from your own personal experience and feelings. 
  • to welcome any feelings that arise, as opportunities for insight and contemplation.
