I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Stuart Baker of Conscious Cooperation. We discussed his experiences with Disquiet in his life. This is a powerful and inspiring story of a man who started asking the big questions on life at a very early age. As a result of learning to work with his Disquiet whenever it appeared in his life, he charted a life long adventure of learning more about himself and helping others grow.

Stuart’s experiences with his Disquiet ultimately led him to blending a fascination with the construction business and a deep calling to bring more harmony and cooperation into the world. His current business, Conscious Cooperation is the result of that blending. He is doing amazing work in a field that needs his gifts. His services extend to the homeowner as well!

You can read more about Stuart’s bio here. And be sure to check out his blog!

From listening to Stuart’s story, what are you learning about your own Disquiet? What has he inspired you to do?

Please share your observations and comments. If you have questions for Stuart, you can post them here or contact him directly by clicking here.

Is Jack Bauer the role model for today’s man?

Is he it?

I read an interesting article from a blog I just discovered called Quiet Paws. It was so good I am presenting it in its entirety here (see below). A continuing issue that comes up in the interviews I am conducting with men from all over the world is the question, what does it mean to be a man today? I have written several posts around mens’ roles:

“Men look like jerks and wimps on TV”

Is being tough or sensitive a forced choice?

What are the 5 things a woman desires in a man?

Passing on your wisdom – what would you say?

Being a superhero can be disquieting

4 tips for dads with Disquiet

The article from Quiet Paws builds on this nicely. I don’t know whether Jack Bauer is the answer for the question of what it means to be a man. But it is interesting to see the pop icons that represent the changing roles.
