BEING with Patrick Cooke

Author: Patrick Cooke

Subscribed: 14Played: 179


The world is changing - fast. And with big changes come even bigger questions. How do we make sense of what is happening? What can we do as individuals? How can we live a life of deeper purpose and fulfillment? Now more than ever we must take full responsibility and engage in our own evolution as conscious agents rather than simply being passive victims.

On BEING, podcast host Patrick Cooke explores what it means to BE human in the modern world through the lens of creativity, consciousness and personal development. Through authentic conversations with guests from across the spectrum including artists, intellectuals, scientists, visionaries, entrepreneurs and thought leaders, we make collective sense of a complex world with the goal of building a sustainable future. We can no longer afford to ask ‘what is best for me?’, the question must now become ‘what is best for me and the whole simultaneously?’
