Giving tuesday 2022 – sensitive men rising

Actor, artist, musician, and featured celebrity – Luke Goss on Sensitive Men Rising~

At the end of the day, I just want to make it easier for future generations to find their compass, whether it be sexuality, location, or expression. Who knows what a man could be and will be if we help him decide for himself...”

Today, on this Giving Tuesday, we invite you to help us provide the mechanism that will indeed help men decide for themselves who and what they might be. Sensitive Men Rising – The Documentary is our testament, our public awakening and coming of age story as a group of men with heart, soul, empathy and compassion, and now turn our attention to lifting other men up, helping them to RISE in self-awareness, self-acceptance, and to then turn that newfound self-love into conscious leadership in this challenged and challenging world!

Donate to Sensitive Men Rising – The Documentary today during Giving Tuesday~

Meet Dr. Saamdu Chetri, a Highly Sensitive Man!

In the 70s, Saamdu was appointed by the first elected Prime Minister of Bhutan and was under the directive of Her Royal Highness Princess Kesang Choden Wangchuck to be the Executive Director of the Gross National Happiness (GNH) initiative of Bhutan. This post was a first for the country, a first for the world, and a first for Saamdu.

Today the former Executive Director of ‘GNH’ is a teacher under Rekhi Foundation for Happiness, serving at various universities in the National Capital Region of India based out of Delhi. Despite his success, his back story was not a fairy tale scenario. He grew up thru a life of disruptive trials and tribulations, circumstances that would challenge any man, let alone a highly sensitive man.

Saamdu will be one of the HSM featured in Sensitive Men Rising – The Documentary. In the documentary, you learn how this humble man’s spiritual prowess, consciousness, and sensory processing sensitivity trait lifted him out of his early life sufferings.

Help us reach our goal on Kickstarter by Dec. 10th (we still need $5,455) so we can complete the filming for Sensitive Men Rising – The Documentary!

Michael Pluess on sensitive men rising – the documentary

Michael Pluess, Master Professor in Developmental and Behavioral Psychology from Queen Mary University in London, describes how we can support Sensitive Boys, how we can create a new perspective shift on Sensitivity as a normative genetic trait brimming with potentialities, and how Sensitive Men Rising – The Documentary can open the conversation around what it means to be ‘masculine’ and male.

Much more to come from Michael in Sensitive Men Rising!! SMR will open your eyes and awareness to a new reality of a Strong Sensitivity already embodied by many Sensitive Men!

Please support our Kickstarter campaign to help us complete filming for SMR!


Sensitive men rising – greg johnson

Greg Johnson shares some insightful, sincere, and heartfelt thoughts on Sensitive Men Rising-The Documentary, along with his way of experiencing the world, which many of us share yet express in varying ways.

A composer and musician like Greg is able to channel his emotional energies and keen sensitivities to notice subtleties into his music and into the way he moves through this life. It’s a beautiful setting to talk about Sensitivity among creative people actually creating, as with Greg here and his lovely wife, Laura!

I relate so well to the creative environment that relies on noting subtleties, instinctive actions, and ‘felt’ embodiment of channeling creative energy to our chosen mediums. In my case, it’s been painting, drawing, wheel-thrown pottery, and actively building with my hands.

Sensitive Men Rising welcomes ALL our fellow CREATIVES to enter this OPEN GALLERY SPACE we are creating on film and CONNECT with a story that speaks to YOU!

Just as with a gallery opening, enter with an open mind, a calm heart, and soak up the film’s raw human stories, the nuances of connectivity and intersectionality, settling here or there to view one story several times to glean those subtle details, and leave with a full heart and joyful optimism that Sensitive Men are so much more than when you entered the space!

Help us make Sensitive Men Rising a reality by contributing to our Kickstarter campaign 😊 🙏

Thrive: The Highly Sensitive Person and Career

“Dr. Cooper has invited us in to examine the complexities and contributions of highly sensitive people. This book offers a conceptual and practical understanding into the inner life and world of an HSP.

The depth of processing, the complexity of thought, the desire for creative engagement and the strong need for meaningful exchanges are all reviewed, shedding light on the unique nature of HSP’s. Having this extremely sensitive being, without awareness, can be a challenging minefield to navigate.

The real examples shared by the HSP population involved in this study helps personalize and characterize how others have related to their own struggles and triumphs on their learning journey.

This book additionally provides context from a social/cultural, childhood and self-care view. This systemic perspective provides an even deeper realization into the intricate web of behaviors.

Dr. Cooper does a wonderful job sharing his own personal insight, provides exceptional awareness into the complex nature of HSP’s and also has strong recommendations with thriving in life and your career!

A highly insightful book and a must read!!” ~Amazon Review


Empowering the Sensitive Male Soul

A must read for every highly sensitive person!

This book is an invigorating, practical, resourceful treasure chest for highly sensitive people and those desiring to understand them. Although marketed for men I knew twenty pages in I would purchase two additional copies for our highly sensitive adult daughters. Readers will appreciate a sophisticated display of their temperament while learning effective strategies regarding career choice, navigating relationships and managing daily life as a highly sensitive person. This book enters my top 10 books every highly sensitive person should read!”
