Gender Equality

“Humanity should realize the majestic cosmic law of equivalency, the law of the Dual Origin, as the foundation of existence. The predominance of one Origin over the other has created a lack of balance and destruction, which may now be observed in all of life.” - Letters of Helena Roerich, Volume 1, October 7, 1930.

The Creative makes things happen, the Receptive allows them to happen.

We give formal and informal talks on the Dual Origin to reach as many people as possible. While the need to give women their full rights is widely understood, the correlation with the destruction caused by the imbalance between the Creative and Receptive energies is often not made. We collect and share stories to show examples of people who have made a difference in the world by bringing their Creative and Receptive principles within themselves to balance.

Education in Action: A Talk on the Dual Origin

The bird of humanity needs two wings to fly high in the sky. Currently, one wing is ailing as can be witnessed every day with violence in schools, ruthless business practices and armed aggressions, nationally and internationally, to name just a few examples. The ailing wing of the bird is the Receptive, or feminine energy in the world. The existence of humanity is based on the Dual Origin, a polarity that pervades the entire universe. It is present in the atom: protons + (positive force) and electrons - (negative force), in electricity DC + (positive force) AC - (negative force), evaporation and condensation, yin and yang, etc. This polarity is often referred to as Creative - or masculine or active; and Receptive, or feminine, or negative. The Creative makes things happen, the Receptive allows them to happen. This is the basis of all existence. Without either one or the other, there simply would be no life. Read more...
