The Advent of the Centaurs

In these 2 articles Richard explores the archetype of the Centaur, and in particular the myths of Chiron and Pholus. As a symbol of the wounded healer inside each of us, Chiron points us towards our suffering as a means of unlocking our gifts – a central tenet of the Gene Keys. In contrast, the myth of Pholus represents the drunken rebel, whose message is to tread with care when unlocking the higher currents of spiritual knowledge.

The Art of Contemplation

The central technique of the Gene Keys. Listen to a free audio introduction and buy the book here. As you begin to learn and master the Art of Contemplation, your entire life will resume a new kind of focus.

As you learn the Art of Contemplation you will begin to experience the field of true prosperity. Prosperity is a living, vibrating field that unifies all areas of your life into a healthy, harmonic whole. And because prosperity is directly linked to freedom, as your breath deepens and you relax more, your mind will become more lucid and your decisions more certain. You will begin to swing into harmony with the spheres, engaging the power of synchronicity. Things may improve for you across the breadth of your life – relationships will become softer and more open, new creative currents will flow through you and fortunate circumstances may ripple through your life. It may seem as though a miracle has happened to you.

The Ecstatics is a series of beautiful monologues set to music, exploring the life and work of some of the greatest saints, poets and mystics of all time.

The Spectrum of Consciousness

Central to the Gene Keys Synthesis, the Spectrum of Consciousness is the linguistic map that you can use to reprogram your entire worldview and ultimately imprint your DNA with a high frequency that will expand your awareness and open your heart. Constructed out of three frequency ‘bands’ known as the Shadow, the Gift and the Siddhi, the spectrum makes the Gene Keys simple to understand, contemplate and ultimately embody.

Download the Spectrum and use it alongside the book – as an oracle, a reference or a mirror of your current emotional/mental state.

Integral Human Design

Are you already interested in Human Design? If so, you may find these free resources fascinating.

During a 7-year period between 1997 and 2004 Richard Rudd studied and taught the Human Design System with founder Ra Uru Hu. Much of this knowledge was integrated to become the foundation of the Gene Keys. Working with Werner Pitzal, Richard then combined these 2 different streams into a more transcendent view using both systems. This became Integral Human Design – a powerful way of using the Gene Keys Spectrum of Consciousness in the Human Design Bodygraph.

Homo Sanctus - the Sacred Human

For centuries, the sages have spoken of a new ‘Sixth’ race of humans that will supersede our current homo sapiens. In these resources Richard Rudd explores this shift in consciousness and what it will take for us to prepare the ground for Homo Sanctus to arrive. We are entering a new epoch in which fully grounded spiritual embodiment will become the norm. This is prophetic information that may still be ahead of its time for the majority of humanity, but for those who feel a resonance to the heart of the Gene Keys, this may well feel like coming home.

The 64 Ways

Imbibe the Gene Keys as a beautiful audio transmission. Listening to  wisdom is very different from reading about it. Sound allows you to bypass the cognitive functions of the brain and take the higher frequencies of the Gene Keys right into the heart of your cells and their DNA.

The 64 Ways are potent oral transmissions of each Gene Key recorded by Richard Rudd. Offering a different perspective from the Gene Keys book, these audios are spoken in a simple, contemplative style and blend practical advice drawn from Richard’s life, as well as poetic insight and gentle humour to probe the depths and dilemmas of the Gene Keys.

These audio transmissions have also been transcribed and edited to form an elegant book of the author’s personal contemplations on the Gene Keys.

Philos Anthropos

Philos Anthropos refers to the essence of what it means to be human – to love others and to be generous.

At the core of the Gene Keys teachings lies a profound spirit of generosity whose rewards are vast and exciting. As the highest expression of human virtue, Philos Anthropos invites you to use your creative genius alongside others in your community to help resolve specific issues you feel passionate about.

Consider joining the Gene Keys Society where we are still in an early stage of laying foundations for a radically philanthropic community dedicated to generosity, service and legacy. Gene Keys Society members may not be saints, yet most of us have already tasted some essential truths:

  • Giving from a full and overflowing heart generates joy
  • Joy generates creativity
  • Creativity generates prosperity
  • Prosperity, especially when shared with those less fortunate, generates an eternal flow of light and life-giving abundance.

The Seven Sacred Seals

The Seven Sacred Seals are a mystical wisdom that dovetails beautifully into the Gene Keys. Their primary purpose is to catalyse the awakening of the heart. This is an amazing program with many levels and dimensions. It is original, inspiring, profound and can be a great comfort to us as we deal with the many challenges that life brings.

This is an astonishing and profound work, not really for the spiritual tourist. Take time, read the associated gene keys, perhaps dwell on each seal for two weeks or more. It’s beautiful and rewards contemplation, deep and serious consideration. Richard Rudd is a poet, and the invocations all framed in mystical and yet nature inspired descriptions, which are so vivid and real that it is easy to get caught up in the visualisations. One may even attain insights, epiphanies, perhaps steps towards enlightenment with this practice!

Human Design

The Gene Keys owes much to The Human Design System, which was transmitted by Ra Uru Hu between the years 1987 and 2012. Richard Rudd was a senior teacher of Human Design who brought the system to the UK and set up a school training many students. Here you can find many free resources on Human Design created by Richard – including various innovative guides and many insightful articles all offered here completely free. He has also re-released his incredible teaching manual and his book on Human Design Circuitry still remains one of the most popular and accessible works on Human Design around the world.

Siddha Palm - the mystic science of mudras

The Gene Keys offer many avenues for the embodiment and grounding of wisdom onto the physical plane. The Siddha Palm teachings connect the ancient science of mudras – sacred hand positions – to the Gene Keys. Through the 64 hand positions you can directly access the highest essence of each Gene Key – known as its Siddhi. This extremely potent form of hand yoga bypasses the mind and sets up biogenetic resonance in the subtle fields surrounding our body. 

Using the Siddha Palm techniques, your hands become a tuning fork for any specific frequency, whether it be Stillness, Ecstasy, Forgiveness or any other Gene Key. You can also practise any of the mudras relating to your Profile, as well as moving through magical sequences which can shift your inner state instantly, bringing balance, health and heightened awareness.

Choose a mudra, perform it every day for a week and you will see a miracle growing before your very eyes.

The Dream Arc

Do you feel an affinity with a particular animal, bird or other creature?

Have you ever dreamed of an animal, and did you realise that it signifies a highly specific gift that your unconscious is trying to release into your life? Each human being has a unique inner pantheon of creatures that represent the deep healing processes within our psyche. These animal codes tend to surface both in our waking life and in our dreams.

The Dream Arc Totem Codex will guide you through this incredible inner wilderness by aligning every Shadow, Gift and Siddhi of each Gene Key to a creature from the underworld, mammal and bird realms. To work with the Dream Arc system is to begin a lifetime’s journey of accessing deep core visionary information from the collective unconscious. It is an intuitive knowledge that is consistently unveiled through dreams and altered states.

The Crystal Alphabet

Re-interpreting the lost language of Minerals, Crystals and Gems

This extraordinary transmission reveals a lost ancient art – Astro-lapidology – the study of the archetypal correspondences between the movements of celestial bodies and the elemental world of minerals.

Consisting of a base alphabet of 99 minerals and stones, the Crystal Alphabet offers a complete system for the creation of powerful amulets personally designed to work with specific forces within someone’s DNA. Amulets can be created to draw out certain qualities within a person’s aura and can be used for a huge variety of purposes, both practical and magical. More than this, the Crystal Alphabet is a teaching that brings human awareness right down into the very densest forms of matter, into the heart of the earth.

Terma, Tertons and Transmission

At the heart of the Gene Keys is a living stream of wisdom. We call this a ‘transmission’ because it passes mysteriously from person to person and is also embodied in the energy field of the teachings themselves. The Tibetans call this kind of wisdom ‘terma’, meaning ‘treasure’, and those who are destined to reveal it are known as ‘Tertons’.

The mystery of Terma and Tertons is a fascinating and magical realm. Here you can hear more of this mystical story from Richard Rudd, the transmission-holder of the Gene Keys. Here he also shares insights from his own journey as a ‘householder yogi’ and reveals how the Gene Keys is like a collective terma with multiple Tertons. If you feel a very deep resonance with the Gene Keys and it speaks through you in some magical way, you yourself may have a destiny with this transmission.
