Video: Check Your Stereotypes At The Door

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/18/14

What the cosmos reveals about the masculine and feminine.

The archetypes of masculinity and femininity can be seen throughout the cosmos. Men and women fit into the Creator’s design. When we don’t understand complementarity between male and female, we lose the capacity to enrich ourselves and lock ourselves into the limits of our own sex. Men and women expand their capacities when they come together. Culture is always changing, and stereotypes are to be rejected, but complementarity is rooted in a human as well as a cosmological reality. This is the third installment in the Humanum film series.
