What is an online retreat and how does it work?

The Dream Arc Retreat hums along in the background of our busy lives, enhancing our view of our relationships and shining a compassionate lens on some of our more challenging patterns.

Participants will follow our powerful online self study course (a minimum of 15 minutes a day or 2 hours a week, over a three month period), gently integrating this wisdom into their everyday lives.

By the end of the voyage, most people witness major beneficial changes in their relationships.

Online Retreat Registration

This retreat is now closed for new scholarship applicants. 

We're sorry to inform you that the early bird registration and scholarship applications are now closed. You can still join the retreat for our regular registration through the Gene Keys shop - https://genekeys.com/product/dream-arc-retreat-2023/

We will announce future retreats and scholarship opportunities through the Pulse Newsletter. If you have questions about the scholarship process, you may refer to the FAQ linked here

No previous experience or understanding of the Gene Keys or the Dream Arc is required. This retreat is great for newcomers and returning voyagers alike! The Dream Arc is accessible to anyone, including those who have no experience or interest in the Gene Keys. The Dream Arc does not use astrology, or a profile of any kind. You can explore the rich and diverse resources of this course without ever knowing what a Gene Key is! The Dream Arc can also be incredibly enriching to seasoned explorers of the Gene Keys, and we hope to see a beautiful collaboration between long time voyagers and newcomers alike.

This is our first ever Dream Arc online retreat. Though we hope there will be more opportunities in the future, this will be a one-of-a-kind experience. Richard & Rosy may not always participate personally in future retreats, so if you are feeling the call... now is the time!

 

Future Dream Arc retreats may center on different themes. This retreat, for example, explores the introductory resources & the quest for the Guardians. Future retreats may be exploring different categories, to go deeper into those quests.

 

At this time there are no planned online retreats in our schedule. All resources and replays from this retreat will continue to be available even after the live events end, to support your ongoing contemplations. 

At a minimum, we recommend 2 hours per week which is only 15 minutes a day. We also highly recommend setting aside one full day during this retreat, to give yourself a "Ritual Day" in October. This can be based on your own personal life schedule, but the results can be profound.

 

For each week's resources we will provide suggestions for essential viewing and optional materials for deeper dreaming to help you prioritize your time. 

 

The core of this retreat is to bring alive your intuition and connection to nature inside your everyday life. This will be different for every person! 

 

It is not necessary to attend all of the live events, to still have a powerful and transformational Dream Arc experience. However, these teachings come alive when we gather together to contemplate. So please take some time to review the retreat calendar, and try to attend at least one of each type of session per month.

 

Webinars and Q&A sessions will be recorded and available for replay. Dream Pod calls may not be recorded due to the personal sharings and breakout rooms, but the general practices and resources provided in those live events will be shared before and after the call for those unable to attend live. We've provided 6 possible time slots for these Dream Pod Community Calls to help adapt to different parts of the world. You only need to attend one of these six options per month to get the benefit, but you are welcome to join as many as you like!

 

Whether you are able to attend many of these events or only a few, this retreat is designed to integrate into your daily life. Take time each day to pause, breathe, and let the wisdom of the Dream Arc come into your awareness. This is YOUR contemplative journey of self-illumination.

Nope! You will have everything you need included in your retreat registration. 

 

This retreat walks alongside the Dream Arc online course, which is included in your registration if you did not already have access. 

 

There is no printed book at this time, but there will be resources in your online course to print some of these assets for offline use. 

 

You will need to download Zoom onto your device to participate in the live Q&A sessions and breakout sessions, but this is not required to watch the replays. 

 

Though you are welcome to join in conversations on external social networks such as Clubhouse, Facebook, and Mighty Networks this is not required for the online retreat. We will not be hosting official retreat communications on any platform other than genekeys.com and email to your inbox. There is a private forum system hosted on genekeys.com where you can continue conversations based on the Dream Arc right from this website.

 

Please note that genekeys.com uses Vimeo to embed videos and resources. If your country does not allow Vimeo due to firewall restrictions, you may not be able to see all resources. Audio only versions will be made available throughout the retreat

Though we are a relatively small team, we are connected to many around the globe and always strive to provide as many resources and tools as we can to our amazingly diverse community.

 

This particular retreat will be in English only. Though we do hope to see more resources being developed and shared in other languages over time. 

 

For accessibility, we do enable transcripts & CC during live zoom events. We also provide edited subtitles on all video replays, though it may take an extra few days to a week to get the subtitles added. 

 

This journey is a rich visual and audio journey, so we hope there is something for everyone no matter your background or physical attributes! Most videos can also be enjoyed as audio only experiences.  

 

We aim to make our website more and more accessible for our low-vision and blind community members.

 

If you ever have trouble navigating something, have a suggestion for better accessibility, or would like any additional support please let us know. 

Is this therapy?

Nope! While the Dream Arc is a profound set of teachings and experiences, it is not therapy. Please take time to reach out to professional therapeutic resources in your area if you feel you need this level of support in your life.

 

The artistic and contemplative practices in the Dream Arc can provide amazing insights, and you can find a supportive community of fellow voyagers waiting to share their stories and breakthroughs with you inside the private forums.

 

Is this shamanism?

The Dream Arc touches into the innate wisdom, compassion and creativity within all living beings. Many shamanic traditions and practices share similar themes, however this course in itself is not claiming to be shamanic. Nor is it represented as a particular lineage of Indigenous wisdom.

 

In creating this online course and bringing together these many streams of global wisdom, we have consistently striven to be sensitive to the many beautiful traditions and lineages that the Dream Arc touches.

 

Our goal is to represent clearly our own cultural history, as well as the teachings and teachers that have informed us along our journey. Rather than dive specifically into certain traditions whose lineages we are not part of, we have taken a more global view and sought to find the grand themes and patterns that lie behind many different traditions and lineages.

 

Our primary source of inspiration is derived from nature herself, and the interaction of our imagination and intuition with nature.

 

The Dream Arc is a framework for Synthesis, and a true Synthesis celebrates the diversity inherent in unity. The Dream Arc provides a framework for this mystery to unfold in each of our lives. In the modern world of today, our own lineages, teachers and traditions are constantly meeting those of others. We are thus privileged to be able to explore many teachings and each of us will synthesise these inside us in our own unique way. There cannot be any single grand synthesis of all the wisdom traditions of the world. Such a thing would be a horrific aberration. The beauty of a single tradition or lineage lies in its intactness. The mystery of Synthesis therefore lies in individual creativity and open-hearted dialogue within community. This is the point of the ancient traditions in the first place – to bring us together in harmony to care for each other and our environment.

As part of our commitment to the above, we have invited Wisdom Keepers from various traditions to share their stories with us within this course. In each instance, and with all our contributors, they own the rights to these interviews and have kindly given us permission to share them. We hope that many people will therefore find, explore and support the generosity of these teachers and lineages, wherever they feel a strong resonance. It is a privilege for us to thus act as a bridge between you and these various wisdom traditions.

Live Webinars with Q&A

Featuring Dream Arc creators Richard Rudd & Rosy Aronson

Experience the mysteries of the Dream Arc come to life through the creative minds and open hearts of your hosts Richard & Rosy. Every other week there will be a new opportunity to join a live Zoom Webinar including the opportunity for submitting questions and sharing in the live chat.

Webinars will last approximately 90 minutes. These sessions will be recorded and available for replay. You will retain ongoing access to all replays even after the end of the retreat

Dream Pod Community Calls

Throughout the retreat, you will be invited to share in your stories, experiences and insights with fellow journeyers in intimate breakout rooms. In these smaller ‘Dream Pod’ rooms we get to model the beautiful indigenous custom of ’embracing the stranger as friend’.

Many participants find that these calls can be quite powerful and engaging, and they are regarded as a highlight of our online retreats. Here you will get to share and be witnessed in your own authentic journey, while also holding space for others. Though it might feel intimidating for some, take a leap and experience the magic of this amazing global community!

Each 90-minute community call will have six timezone options to choose from. You may attend several events, though you may need to register ahead of time due to zoom room capacity. Your hosts will share important values & agreements for these calls, to make this a safe and inclusive experience. Due to the nature of these intimate breakout sessions, these calls will NOT be recorded.

Weekly Guidance

Email Reminders & Inspiring Resources

Our online retreats move with a rhythm to support our collective contemplation. Each week, you will receive an inspirational email to your inbox, with reminders of the upcoming live events, and guidance for your current contemplation. The Dream Arc hums along in the background of our busy lives. You do not need to attend every live event to experience a breakthrough. Everyone is encouraged to find their own level of commitment within the course materials.

To support this we will divide the course into layers of Essential Resources & Deeper Dreaming.

We do recommend taking at least 2-3 hours per week to explore the essential resources or by attending the live events offered throughout the retreat. This level of sustained commitment can have a profound impact on your life.

Dream Arc Forums & Directory

We aim to provide a safe space for anyone in this retreat to be able to share their breakthroughs, insights, discoveries, or artistic expression within a community of like-minded and open-hearted beings.

Though there are many social networks and media platforms you may choose to express yourself and find others in your community, this private group forum and member directory is available to all participants of the Dream Arc online course.

Whether you post on the forum regularly, or you only check the activity feed every now and again, this will be a place reserved for your Dream Arc contemplations and stories. This group is voluntary to join, and you can control your level of account privacy at any time.

You can also find and connect with others in the global Dream Arc community. Simply view the private member directory, and "Request to Connect".

Like friendship requests on other platforms, this will allow you to meet and exchange messages with others from around the world.

In previous retreats, participants have found life-long friends and continued to contemplate and co-create in their own groups long after the retreat ends.
