About

I’ve been playing at the Venn intersection of sex, consciousness and healing for over 40 years. That officially makes me OLD.

I’ve worked with thousands of men and women in astonishingly intimate ways. That makes me HUMBLE.

I’m done with men being force-fed images of a fake masculinity that doesn’t exist in the real world. That PISSES ME OFF.

Authentic masculinity is infinitely fascinating. There is no end to our shadows, or our light. Women – and men – crave these deeper connections with us. That makes me SHOUT FOR JOY.

Come join our exploration. Be who you REALLY are – and share your own unique deep masculine with the world.

Love & Blessings,

David Cates

    Hi, David,

    Awesome site.

    I’d like to invite you to view a preview/draft of the screening version of my film series, “The Other Side of the Glass: A birth film series for and about men”. It’s a very layered film including talking about the soul coming in at birth and a mens’ movement of making birth safe.

    The link is http://www.vimeo.com/18178759

    Here’s what a father said after viewing the preview:

    “Janel, I watch a lot of birth videos (my wife is a midwife and it seems to be some sort of professional obligation). Recently, I have been horrified by what I see. Watching the previews you’ve had up recently has changed the way I understand what I am seeing. This is especially true around the parts dealing with “What would it take to make an adult scream like that?” You have changed the way I think about, view, and evaluate births that I see and hear about. My feelings about the birth of my own children has changed. Really, my world has changed.”

    I am planning a Father’s Day week premiere in LA.

    I hope you can check it out soon and I appreciate any feedback you can give me.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
    All the best,

    Janel
