Interview #13 for the documentary film Sensitive Men Rising, the first film about the 50% of highly sensitive people who are men and have been hidden away for too long. Today’s interview the wonderful David Johnson was a treat because David has long experience with various men’s groups and movements, as well as his thoughtful insights on being a world traveler and the spiritual journey that reflects the journey we sensitive men embark on when we become aware of high sensitivity as a personality trait or temperament.
David’s calm and clear demeanor is a great exemplar of the rich inner life and the way we sensitive men may come to view high sensitivity as a practice that requires many years, even a lifetime, to come to know. Our richer interior spaces where reflection meets raw stimulation and our ability to hold spaces within ourselves generates an openness and expansiveness that is missing in many men today.
Sensitive Men Rising, a film directed by Sensitive-The Untold Story director Will Harper, will present David and many other sensitive men’s stories in ways that will invite other men, and very likely women, to reflect on their high sensitivity and contextualize their lived experiences
