Richard Rudd


An international teacher, mystic and poet, Richard Rudd attended Edinburgh University where he gained a Master’s degree in literature and metaphysics.


Richard’s mystical journey began early in life as he experienced strange energies rushing throughout his body. This catalysed his spiritual search. All his studies became synthesised in 2002 when he began to write and receive the Gene Keys – a vast synthesis exploring the miraculous possibilities inherent in human DNA. It took 7 years to write the book and understand its teachings and applications. 


Today Richard continues to extend and embody the wisdom he receives, sharing it with an ever-growing audience around the world. His work has been translated into many languages, and in 2019, Richard was named on the Watkins list of The 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People.
