What Will Replace Patriarchy?

Looking into the saga of male dominance

I found this interview between Gaia’s Regina Meredith and author/counselor Zeus Yiamouyiannis, PhD (!) interesting, engaging, and just plain enjoyable to watch. If you’ve found the matter of true and deep connection with the opposite sex (or polarity) daunting, this might be for you.

The fact that Zeus is Regina’s husband was a fun surprise to me, right off the bat. A dynamic duo, they are: two people doing the good work of expanding consciousness (and love :) join forces and beam out to us from Sedona. Zeus seems to me an aware, articulate, high-vibe and good-humored man (known as “Dr Zeus”), and as such has earned a place on this esteemed blog. Such an honor! ;)
