A teacher, mystic and poet, Richard Rudd attended Edinburgh University where he gained a master’s degree in literature and metaphysics. A born explorer, he has studied with great teachers in the East, traveled through the Himalayas, the Pacific, the Americas and the Arctic. He worked in the film industry in Australia, trained as a teacher of Chi Kung in Thailand and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean on a small yacht. During this time he lived in Manhattan, Oregon and Hawaii before finally returning to the UK in 1998, where he met Marian his wife. Over the following years they had 3 children and moved to Devon in southern England. Throughout his adventures Richard has explored his love of writing and in 2006 he won the FISH international poetry award in Ireland.
Richard’s mystical journey began early in life as he experienced strange energies rushing throughout his body. This phenomenon catalysed his spiritual search. All his studies became synthesised in 2002 when he began to write and receive the Gene Keys. It took seven years to write the book and understand its teachings and applications. Today Richard continues to study and teach the profound lessons contained in the Gene Keys.
The Art of Contemplation
“One of the great lost arts of the modern world, the Art of Contemplation requires a deep sense of subtlety, patience and softness. Deep insight never reveals itself to a grasping, unsettled mind. The wisdom of the Gene Keys has taught me this art – it has taught me the joy of pausing, of meandering, of flowing. When your mind becomes like water, the Truth ripples all around you – in the faces of those you love, in the harmonics of the wind in the leaves and in the sinew and bone of your everyday life.
All my teachings are best approached in this same way – in a spirit of deep relaxation. True intelligence is activated through the patience and softness of the heart, and only later confirmed by the mind. Here you need to be a lover of mystery with a beginner’s mind, rather than arriving as an expert determined to solve a riddle.
I hope you enjoy my contemplations throughout this site, and may this rare art inspire and illuminate the truth that lies within your heart.” – Richard Rudd
The Ecstatics Audio Series
“Welcome to The Ecstatics, my personal journey into the higher consciousness of the human heart.
All throughout history, the most enduring and uplifting theme to possess humanity is the theme of love. All our trials, longings and issues can be reduced to this basic question – how do I find love?
In this series I will be diving deeply into the thriving heart-field of some of the greatest of the Ecstatics. I will show how their spirit still lives and breathes inside our own hearts, and once this same love inside your own heart is truly touched, it can never leave you. In this modern time of uncertainty and deep change, these are the people we should be listening to most intently – for their message is the clearest and most vital that has ever been.” – Richard Rudd
