Formation of the Himalayas[ change change source ] Geologically, the origin of the Himalayas is the impact of the Indian tectonic plate. The formation of the Himalayas resulted in the lighter rock of the seabeds of that time being lifted up into mountains. An often-cited fact used to illustrate this process is that the summit of Mount Everest is made of marine limestone.
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 inwhere 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 he won the FISH international poetry award in Ireland.
This phenomenon catalysed his spiritual search. All his studies became synthesised in 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. 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.
I hope you enjoy my contemplations throughout this site, and may this rare art inspire and illuminate the truth that lies within your 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.That’s a very personal journey for everyone.
What influenced me was my friendship with Sir Edmund Hillary.
I remember talking about Everest, getting caught up in excitement, and he told me, “Someday, you’ll turn your gaze from the summit to the valleys, because that’s what really matters.”. Imagine living in an oceanfront Palm Beach Luxury Residence that offers the best of all worlds—two, graceful towers that rise from a quiet stretch of pristine Atlantic shoreline on Palm Beach County’s picturesque Singer Island.

Both personal account and assiduously researched history, this book is an important study that all big dog owners will want to read and own. Don Messerschmidt, award-winning author and anthropologist, is an Himalayan specialist and an authority on Tibetan mastiffs (TMs) from the 'Roof of the World'.
Arriving into the small airport of Dehradun via Delhi, I was greeted by my personal driver and taken straight into an air-conditioned 4x4 for the short minute journey up the mountain towards Ananda. It was a personal journey, where we all had a chance to interact with the Nepali people, and experience life the way they do.
My advice to anyone wanting to do this trek is to laugh and smile on the difficult days, be generous to the ones guiding and helping you, and do as the Nepalese do.
