What are the Gene Keys?

Gene Keys is a living and a mythical system, and Gene Keys has been developed for self-exploration and self-illumination and can be integrated for smaller groups to embody your higher purpose in life. Gene Keys’ power lies in the unique self-inquiry to discover your true nature of being.

Gene Keys is all about relationships, your gifts, and prosperity, which I think is wonderful because you can easily integrate experiences from the wisdom into everyday life.

This discovery process is made possible with the integration of the individual hologenetic profile (your compass), which combines your birth date, time and location of birth, the 64 Gene Keys (your map) and the Golden Path (your journey).

There are unlimited possibilities to start in Gene Keys. My start in this journey began in 2018 after a friend recommended me the book (the map). As I began to read the book, my interest in the hologenetic profile grew because I noticed that the book from Richard Rudd is written from love, wisdom and truth and connects ancient wisdom with the newest discoveries from science.

In Gene Keys, it’s all about the trinity, which matches the mission of Beyonduality. The 64 Gene Keys is a spectrum of consciousness. Each Gene Key contains a shadow, a gift, a siddhi, an introverted (repressed), and an extroverted (reactive) behavior pattern.

Who’s Richard Rudd?

Richard Rudd is the creator of Gene Keys. He is an award-winning poet, author of several books, and teacher. He had an exceptional experience at the age of 29 where he received the inspiration of the Gene Keys transmission while not being able to sleep for three days and three nights. It took him seven years to write the essential Gene Keys book, which includes all the 64 Gene Keys, which was my first contact to this teaching.

Read everything about Richard Rudd in detail here. Richard Rudd is also active on YouTube, where he explains different aspects of Gene Keys in a beautifullly poetic way.

3 Essentials of Gene Keys: Where to Start?

1. Hologenetic Profile

The easiest start into Gene Keys is by downloading the Hologenetic Profile for free. The Hologenetic Profile unifies astrological calculations with an archetypal understanding of our genetics. The Hologenetic Profile is available in twelve different languages including German.

Richard Rudd uploaded 5 live readings at the end of 2019 on his YouTube Channel. This makes it easier to deepen the understanding of the hologenetic profile. Here is one of the Live Readings of Richard Rudd on 11.12.2019.

2. Book – The Gene Keys

The Gene Keys Book

The hologenetic profile standalone can be quite complex at the beginning, so another easy start into the Gene Keys is to buy the book or its audible version **. The kindle version of the Gene Key book is also affordable in English, it’s really insane. A big thanks to Richard Rudd for making all of the Gene Keys materials so easily accessible to the world. Besides the book, Richard Rudd’s YouTube channel is a great start into this transmission and teaching because you can feel his teaching’s essence in his videos.

In my weekly YouTube videos, you discover more about the book:

3. The Golden Path

The Golden Path

The guided program from Richard Rudd is the more committed start into Gene Keys. Richard Rudd explains everything step by step in an easy-to-follow approach. The first stage of the Gene Keys path is the Activation Sequence, the second stage the Venus Sequence, the third stage the Pearl Sequence and the fourth stage the Saturn Sequence (not yet released). Those four Sequences guide you into the heart of your hologenetic profile and all of the wisdom of the transmission.

The Deep Dive into Genius program, which was first launched at the beginning of 2020, starts into the Golden Path with the Activation Sequence. The Activation Sequence unlocks the wisdom of your Life’s Work, your Evolution, Radiance and Purpose. For Gene Key newcomers it’s a great start to understand the map and the compass. Overall more than 1500 people attended the Deep Dive into Genius experience. Right now, The Golden Path program is only available in English.

The Art of Contemplation

One major aspect of the Gene Keys teaching is the art of contemplation. Just recently Richard Rudd published his new book “The Art of Contemplation”, which in nature is a mystery beyond our mind. The Art of Contemplation is an inward-looking process that combines pauses throughout a day between activities (could also be meditations) and the actual activities.

Actual activities based on Gene Keys could include reading or listening to your profile, attending community calls and sharing your experiences and working out the activities of your daily life. The bridge of activities and pauses is the secret. Pivoting and Merging are the two other essential aspects of the Art of Contemplation. You can find everything about them in the book.

“To know what we really are, we have to go beyond the mind. This is the purpose of The Art of Contemplation. Paradoxically, for many of us contemplation begins as a form of “unlearning”, as we let go of our reliance on our intellect and open up to new pathways of awareness inside ourselves.”

– Richard Rudd

Here are six great introduction videos about the Art of Contemplation.

What was the Gene Key Society?

Gene Keys Society

Update 20.05.2020: The Gene Key Society is now redirected to the official website. Everything that was a part in the Gene Key Society; the Community Forum, the Ambassador Programme, the Delta Program to the Living Library are now implemented on On the official page a new community forum will also be implemented soon.

The Gene Key Society was the heart of the community and is now being established as a part of the official Gene Keys website to have one simplified hub for Gene Keys.

Gene Keys Delta Program

Delta Fellowship

The Gene Keys Delta Program is a luminous game of higher consciousness. This Gene Keys experience is an entirely new experience into our collective consciousness. I am currently waiting for my fourth delta round to start. The Delta Program is a seven weeks long journey with seven voyagers.

Each week, every voyager contemplates one fixed Gene Key and is partnered with one of the other six, while one voyager has no specific partner and holds an extraordinary role during that week.

The Delta Program is a vast commitment for the seven voyagers. You can also attend the Delta Program as a newcomer into this teaching, which would probably be a very unique experience for you. In April 2020, I completed my first Delta round and in July my second round. Recently in July 2021, I completed my third Delta round.

More informations in my article:

Guides Foundation Programme

The Guides Foundation Programme is a prerequisite to guide others into the Gene Keys Approach and everyone who dreams of mastering the art of contemplation. The prerequisite to participate in the Guides Programme is to finish the Activation and Venus Sequence online programmes. Furthermore, the Guides Programme is a prerequisite for the upcoming Ambassador Initiative later in 2022. I completed the Guides Programme in September 2021. I loved the course!

Update September 2021: The Guides Programme launched in March 2021 and is a complete self-study online course.

Living Library

One of the main reasons for me to visit the Gene Keys Society besides the forum is the Living Library. The Living Library can be an optimal start into your hologenetic profile, because the Gene Keys living library contains the wisdom of all 64 Gene Keys. You could consider it as the search engine for this teaching. You find everything from the Codon Rings, The I Ching, Astrology, Programming Partners, Integral Human Design to the Dream Arc.

Open Community Calls

Every week and month, you are able to attend in open community calls with other Gene Keys voyagers to deepen your wisdom and journey and to get to know other voyagers. I have already attended several community calls and I loved the experience, and thus I highly recommend these opportunities to you. The community calls are cost free and most of them are over the platform ZOOM.

Ambassador Programme

The Ambassador Programme is for those who take the Gene Keys transmission serious and are committed to be a catalyst in the role to host the wisdom of the Gene Keys transmission. Since 2020, the Guides Foundation Programme is a prerequisite to participate the Ambassador Programme. At the same time, you have to contemplate the Gene Keys programs (Activation + Venus Sequence) for at least 18 months.

Update: The Ambassador Programme has been also delayed until 2022.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions for Gene Keys

How is the Human Design System related to Gene Keys?

The human design system originated by Alan Robert Krakower under the pseudonym Ra Uru Hu in 1992. Richard Rudd was an active human design student and teacher and had the sensation that something new, mystical and marvelous can blossom out of the human design system. So, he decided to have the human design system’s great building blocks as a significant player in the Gene Keys system. Human design is more structured and business-oriented, and Gene Keys is more intuitive and relationship-oriented. Both systems use the same 64 hexagrams and use very similar wording for the 64 ‘Keys’, but the explanations of how your exact profile inspires you are different.

Can I start to contemplate Gene Keys and Human Design at the same time?

Are those two self help systems good to start at the same time? I highly recommend to start with Gene Keys as the foundational system because it is super compressed and adjusted for a loving life full of light and gratitude. Simultaneously, human design is more structured, but the sensation while contemplating feels more fragmented. I also did not find super resonating resources and no official website because it is spread out widely. My suggestion is to be aware of human design within the broader aspect of the Gene Keys Teachings. Human Design and Gene Keys at the same time are a big over-commitment, because Human Design and Gene Keys are both very dense and complex. And by contemplating Gene Keys, you will passively know the basics of Human Design.

For further details, read my article: Human Design vs. Gene Keys– What to Study and Master?

How do Gene Keys connect people with the same Gene Keys?

People with the same Gene Key can often understand your inner truth and communication with more clarity, while others do not understand you and your life experiences in depth. That’s because these people share a stronger genetic relationship to your own Gene Keys and the issues in life. This effect is the strongest when people share the same Gene Keys in the Activation Sequence’s exact Spheres, the Venus Sequence, or the Pearl Sequence.

How do you become a Gene Keys member?

There is no membership in Gene Keys by Richard Rudd. You can create a free profile, buy the book and attend the Golden Path programs. For questions and discussions, you can connect with the community. There is a forum on the official Gene Keys Website and the official Facebook Group ‘Gene Keys Global‘, where all the voyagers and contributors of Gene Keys can be found.

How to find out my human Gene Keys?

To find out about your human Gene Keys, you need to know your birth place / city, your birthday and time of birth, and optimally also your exact birth time. Simultaneously, if you do not know your exact birth time, you shouldn’t be worried because you will resonate with the Gene Keys you need to resonate with anyway.

How to get the free Gene Keys Hologenetic Profile?

Visit the official Gene Keys Website and fill out your details for your personalized Hologenetic Profile.

How to read the Gene Keys?

Each Gene Key can be contemplated in the official book and the audios created by Richard Rudd. Also expand your wisdom by starting the first two free steps of the Golden Path here.

How to use Gene Keys?

The Gene Keys are there to be used intuitively, because it’s a mystical system. Sometimes, I randomly open the book pages, and I start to read precisely this Gene Key. This simple approach always expands my clarity and awareness. It’s also highly recommended not to stop reading a Gene Key in the middle. Always read a Gene Key from the Shadow to the Siddhi because you will have the most in-depth understanding of the relationship between the Shadow, the Gift, and the Siddhi.

Where do Gene Keys come from?

The Gene Keys are an integrated intuitive system develoved by Richard Rudd. Building blocks of the Gene Keys are the I Ching (Book of Changes), the Human Design System, Astrology (Role of Astrology in Gene Keys), our human genetics and the ancient wisdom of the causal plane / body and the fifth density. You can fine more details in the Glossary of Empowerment.

What does communion mean in Gene Keys?

The Siddhi of the 45. Gene Key is Communion, while Synergy is the gift and Dominance is the shadow. To truly understand communion we may consider the direct relationship with the gift of synergy. Synergy is the path from Hierarchy to Heterarchy. Today we are still dominated by hierarchic systems all around the world. Heterarchy means that every single human being is aware of their soul’s purpose and from within all cells knows that humanity is a single organism. Communion can be seen as a stage in which humanity selflessly embodies this truth of a single organism, in which everyone embodies his or her higher purpose in life. For example, if you think about and contemplate bee colonies and how they always work in communion, you have a brief insight into how humanity will work together harmoniously at one point in evolution.

All of My Personal Gene Keys Explorations & Diaries

Since 2020, I decided to document my inner Gene Keys explorations. The following articles might give you a more in-depth insight into the teaching, and my articles might inspire you to explore your inner truth. At the same time, I decided to make Gene Keys diaries a part of my inner and outer commitment to a new world of symbioses and synthesizes.

My Handwritten 64 Names of Love Map for Gene Keys

64 Names of Love Chart Gene Keys

Here you find my personal document on how to observe your higher purpose between the 64 Gene Keys on a whole new level with clear insights into your hologenetic profile.

While I dived deeper into the Golden Path last October, I found that the 64 Names of Love is documented in one of the later programs from Richard Rudd (Dare to be Divine), and I loved it! At the same time, I felt something is missing for my higher purpose. So, I made a handwritten version of the 64 Names of Love, including all Gene Keys in detail. The document is perfect for printing or online usage. I made a horizontal and an upright version, depending on your needs.

💥 Below you are able to access the 3 files (2 horizontal formats) + (1 upright format), both in PDF. At the same time, you receive access to all of my personal resources from Gene Keys in the Drive Folder.

✅ Explanation of the 64 Names of Love Map from Gene Keys 🧩

The 64 Names of Love Map is a technical explanation of Gene Keys from the perspective of I Ching. Richard Rudd explained this in the pre orientation part of the Dare to be Divine program, which is easy to understand.

There are 4 primary Gene Keys (1), (2), (63), (64), and the other sixty Gene Keys spread out from those 4 primaries. The (1) + (2) is one family, and the (63) + (64) is one family. In this case, (1) + (2) and (63) + (64) are also called programming partners. From those 4 primaries, 12 mysteries spread out. Each primary contains 3 mysteries which are family to each other. Those 3 mysteries are also family to the above primary. From those 12 mysteries, 48 letters spread out. Each mystery contains 4 letters which are family to each other. They are also family to the above mystery and the above primary.

🧐 What Did I Discover from My 64 Names of Love Map? 🧩

I applied the Gene Keys Style by Richard Rudd, played like a kid and contemplated openly. I found out that for example the Shadow of Dislocation (2), Complexity (23), Addiction (24) and Selfishness (27) has a closer relationship with each other for me personally. While I was doing things too complex (23), addicted (24) and selfish (27) in my life, I fell into a deeper dislocation (2) state. Today, I discovered more often to be simplistic (23 – Gift), human loving (27) and inventing (24), which leads to an orientation in my life (2 – Gift). So, it is quite simple to observe the context from the primary (2) and the 3 mysteries (23), (24) and (27) of that primary.

For my own use, I added everything to my individual map from the programming partners, colored my own individual Gene Keys from my hologenetic profile. Furthermore, I even added all the Codon Rings and the Chakras for each Gene Keys. Be creative by using this map, and feel free to share your experiences.


The Gene Keys documents are free to use. Sharing and linking to this blog article, while using the documents on projects is very much appreciated. By doing so, you help me spread my vision of love and peace. I am happy to serve 💜

3 Reasons Why Gene Keys by Richard Rudd is Exciting

dna 3 reason for gene keys

Reason 1 – The teaching combines spirituality and science with poetry

Gene Keys by Richard Rudd is a system that goes very deep and is connected with a lot of joy. Richard Rudd’s writing style is very poetic, and his calm and hearty rhythm in videos on YouTube or the online program mystically opens people’s hearts. Through Gene Keys, I have gained much more comprehensive views on my personal life, which I integrate more and more into my everyday life. I love that this teaching combines spirituality and science in a harmonic and meanwhile simple manner.

Reason 2 – Gene Keys is a system of universal understanding

How is it possible to describe something indescribable? Richard Rudd has achieved this in his masterpiece! The inner world in this transmission goes into resonance with my unique truth. Besides, play and fun are linked together so that the knowledge and insights can be integrated into everyday life in the best possible way.

Reason 3 – Gene Keys is a transmission of love, wisdom and truth

In my life, it has become increasingly important to do everything effortlessly and with ease and not to impose goals or paths on life, which results in a limited self. This system translates the game of life beautifully in a multi-faceted way of love and light. I feel safe and at home here. Life itself is alive and effortless, and nature knows precisely where to go. In the body of a human being, we are also part of nature and are allowed to respect it. Richard Rudd’s work deeply appreciates the nature of reality and brings high-frequency teachings with authenticity into the world.

Bonus Reason: Spiritual Path of Devotional Relationships 

In our world, spiritual pathes have been long a devotional path towards a guru or a godhead. The Gene Keys teachings introduce a devotional path towards all relationships in your life. This is fresh, groundbreaking and straightforward.

Finally, I decided to give a short intro to the two advanced programs: Dare to be Divine and the Seven Sacred Seals, which I started in 2019.

Dare to be Divine

Dare to be Divine is a very mystical Gene Keys journey into your inner essence.

For me, the Activation, Venus and Pearl Sequences are the fundamentals to understand our genetics in a more refined way and it helped me a lot in a practical sense to observe my own shadow patterns at work. The more I moved from Activation into Pearl, the more mystical it became. This really amazed me, and I understood myself at a whole new level. The golden path revealed my past that I had reflected already and in an intense hindsight, the accuracy of my own voyage was insane.

Therefore, I started the Dare to be Divine material and for me the course shows future probabilities of our universal love and our true self. At the same time, it is not super easy to resonate with everything, as it is at the Golden Path, which is far away from the current life that we live. For that reason, it is important to watch it from a playful perspective. It seems like a course meant for very open-minded and high consciousness beings that are able to see the practicality in the Dare to be Divine material.

While I attended the course from Richard Rudd, I also checked the relationship between my own hologenetic profile and the 64 Names of Love. It helped me to understand the teaching at a more profound level. The Dare to be Divine material is mind opening and the stories are as great as always.

The Seven Sacred Seals

The Seven Sacred Seals was by far the craziest book and online course I have ever ordered. After reading the book, doing some of the invocations, and resonating strongly with them, I ordered the online course. I have already worked very intensively at similar topics over the last 3 years and went into ecstatic states at seminars before discovering this transmission. I knew what higher states of consciousness are possible. However, I was still blown away by the Seven Sacred Seals material, especially the invocations spoken by Richard Rudd.

At the same time this material is the only transmission of Gene Keys, I am careful to recommend it to others, because people have to be ready. I have no idea why, but this Seven Sacred Seals transmission is the real deal for higher consciousness levels. If you read this article until the very end, the Seven Sacred Seals material could be for you.

Feel free to comment below. All questions will be answered personally.

Thanks a lot for reading my article.

Cheers to all of you voyagers! 🥰

With unconditional love,
