About this Course


Community Calls & Breakout Groups

Throughout each month, participants will be invited to several conference calls with others in the Gene Keys community. Similar to local area study groups, or breakout rooms at a physical retreat, these calls offer a way for us all to connect across the globe. Though the Golden Path is a journey of self-illumination, the teachings come alive within our relationships and community. These calls offer a safe place for small groups of students to gather around the teachings, and share in authentic meaningful contemplation together. Many of our students find that these calls can be quite powerful and engaging. Communal contemplation can be a powerful way to amplify the impact of the Gene Keys in your everyday life.

There will be different time zone options available to support community engagement that works with your schedule. Due to the nature of these calls, as platforms for vulnerable sharing and connecting, these calls will not be recorded or available for replay. Full schedule to be announced. 


Hosted Q&A Sessions & Private Forum

Throughout each month, you will also be invited to join live Q&A sessions with your Deep Dive hosts, or participate in the private discussion forums for your virtual retreat study group. It is our intention to provide guidance that models the Gene Keys Approach of contemplation, inquiry, gentleness, and patience throughout this retreat. Each month, participants can bring their contemplative questions to the “Dancing with the Transmission” sessions with the Deep Dive Hosts.

There will also be a Deep Dive into Genius home page and helpful resources to guide you to the most current event.

The Gene Keys is a self-illuminating voyage, and is designed to offer a gentle path of contemplation inside your every day life. The Golden Path is an inner path…a private path. And yet, when groups of people around the world pool engage in collective contemplation, miraculous things can occur.

This virtual retreat provides you support first and foremost through the Teachings themselves. With new helpful videos, meditations, and guidance, Richard will guide newcomers and longtime students through Part 1: the Activation Sequence. Then, throughout each month of contemplation, it is up to you to relax, unwind, and let the transmission transform your life from the inside out.

In addition, this course offers support through volunteers from our Ambassador Circle. These are long time voyagers who have made a deep inner commitment to the transmission of the Gene Keys. The Ambassadors model the approach of contemplation, compassionate inquiry, and support through gentleness. They will be available in the support forums, on community calls, and available through the Ambassador Directory. If you have a question, you may just find a friendly Ambassador to help guide the way.

Finally, it is important to remember that the Transmission itself is the support of Grace in our lives. Through gentle contemplation and wholehearted commitment, the Gene Keys can support you in activating your genius in the world. Inside every shadow lies hidden a gift.

Absolutely! This is a great opportunity for any level of familiarity with the Gene Keys. If you are brand new, this program will guide you step by step through the art of contemplation. The wisdom of the Activation Sequence can provide a strong foundation for inner cultivation, and a springboard for quantum leaps in your evolution.

You can begin exploring the eCourse Golden Path Part 1: The Activation Sequence immediately upon purchase. This step by step program is already filled with videos, audios, and contemplation guidance for you to begin your exploration. The live events will begin late June, and these sessions will provide a communal container to deepen your experience through the Activation Sequence.

You are invited to begin exploring these resources any time, or wait until the week of June 22nd to start together at our first live gathering.

This virtual retreat is designed to wrap itself around your daily life. The art of contemplation is a gentle path of awareness. You are encouraged to attend three live events per month, with several options for different time zones and schedules. Those who feel called to attend multiple community call sessions are welcome to do so. The rest of the resources in this retreat are designed to be self-study. You decide how much time each week you want to spend watching the videos, listening to audio contemplations, or reading the provided text. You can move through this material at your own pace throughout the four months, and beyond! You will have ongoing access to these materials, for your continued contemplation.

Please note that no additional books are required for this course. This online course includes the audio files for your specific Gene Keys which are enough to get you started on your contemplative journey.


To get the most out of this programme, it is recommended to purchase the primary Gene Keys book This book provides the foundational teachings for each Gene Key archetype.

The Gene Keys book is available on Amazon in softcover and Kindle. This tome provides an in-depth analysis of each Gene Key. If you are unable to access the Gene Keys Book, rest assured the Audio Contemplations by Richard Rudd included with your eCourse will guide you well.


The Art of Contemplation book is also optional. This little book has provided many students with a more practical guide into the primary technique of the Gene Keys – contemplation. This is not required, but a helpful companion to your Deep Dive journey.

Genius – A Guide to your Activation Sequence is included as an eBook in this virtual retreat and the Activation Sequence course. The printed version of this book is available for additional purchase, but it not required, as all of these materials are included directly in your online course. This option is primarily for those students who prefer to read from a physical book, as opposed to online.

The Activation Sequence online course is the original package on that includes the eBook “Genius” and the accompanying videos and audio files, set out in 33 steps of the Golden Path.

Deep Dive into Genius is the new virtual retreat that uses the Activation Sequence eCourse as the skeleton for a 4 month contemplation journey. Participants will have access to a newly designed online course to see the Activation Sequence resources. This includes new resources created by Richard during the January Deep Dive earlier this year. The real goal of the virtual retreat, however, is to provide you with helpful reminders and safe communal containers to deepen into your contemplative journey. For many, the Deep Dive can provide structure and rhythm to help you engage with the self study material in a more regular and engaging way. This experience is also hosted by a team of Gene Keys Ambassadors who will help bring the transmission alive through the virtual events.

Those who have already bought the Activation Sequence or previous Deep Dive Genius retreats can join the Deep Dive virtual retreat for a discounted price. Simply login with your username that has already purchased the Activation Sequence course, and your discount should automatically be applied for Virtual Retreat registration.

The Gene Keys Golden Path is not something to do once. It is a life to be lived. Many students have found amazing results in returning to the Activation Sequence multiple times. Consider going on the journey again together with the Gene Keys community! You may find great gems of wisdom when you look again with fresh eyes.

Additionally, this course includes the 4 new webinars and 3 new audio meditations recorded by Richard earlier this year. These new contemplations by Richard may bring new layers of awareness about each sphere and the pathways in between…

Since you have already purchased the eCourse, you are automatically eligible to register for Deep Dive into Genius at a discounted rate.

The book “Genius – A Guide to your Activation Sequence”, available on Amazon, is the optional printed version of the eBook manual for part 1 of the Golden Path. While this companion book has a lot of information included in the Activation Sequence eCourse, it is not the complete package. You will need to still have the entire Activation Sequence eCourse in order to participate in the deep dive.

The printed book is designed to be a companion add-on for those who prefer to read in print as opposed to eBooks or online media.

If you have not purchased the online course from, then you will need to register at the full amount of $150. This registration will include your lifetime access to the whole Activation Sequence eCourse, and give you new exciting materials that go beyond what is provided in the printed book.

Great! All you need to do is login to with the username you originally used to purchase the Activation Sequence. While logged in, you can visit the “Register” page for the Deep Dive virtual retreat. You will see that a $100 discount has already been applied to the product!

We are excited to welcome back our first batch of Deep Divers from January – April 2020. If you feel called to join for another 16 week virtual retreat, you can register for only $25. Simply login to your Deep Dive account and use this special registration link. This next version of the virtual retreat will include new features and live community events, making the resources easier to access and explore together.

This new version of the retreat includes:
  • Monthly Community Calls
  • Monthly “Dancing with the Transmission” Q&A Sessions with Hosts
  • Monthly Synchronized Meditations
  • New “Villages” – Private group forums monitored by Deep Dive Hosts and Gene Keys Ambassadors
  • A new online course interface and easier access for desktop and mobile
You will retain your access to all of the materials in their original form on your old Deep Dive virtual retreat home page. However, this new version has an updated course structure and easier to navigate interface! This new version also includes private study group forums, called “Villages”, where you can use the new discussion system to share posts with a group of 64 other people. These intimate villages will provide a more focused container for communal contemplations, as opposed to the very large stream of the Facebook feed used in the previous retreat. Gene Keys will not be hosting any groups on Facebook or other social media platform, and instead switching to a private social network system inside By joining this next Deep Dive you can experience the first prototype of this new forum system within the 16 week retreat!

Richard will not be hosting this particular retreat, but all of his latest videos and teachings are available in the step-by-step course included in this retreat. Richard himself has entrusted the Gene Keys Ambassador Circle to lead this Retreat, and may well join in with us – and appear when you least expect him throughout this time together, maybe even in your breakout group!

The Gene Keys is an amazing gift to share with friends and family. Walking through the Activation Sequence with your loved ones can be a powerful and magical experience.

However, the virtual retreat and eCourses are designed specifically for YOU. The best way to review the resources is for each participant to have their own login to courses. That way the information you read is based on YOUR unique hologenetic profile.
