Invite a Friend


to Join you at



The 30th New Mexico


Men’s Wellness Conference


October 23-26, 2014


The Fall Conference theme this year will be “Friendship”. Think about a close friend and what makes that friend so special. What is your common bond? How have you sustained and enriched the friendship over time? How have you resolved conflicts in the friendship? Have you ever lost a friend, or grieved a friend? Have you ever felt friendless or isolated? These are some of the aspects of friendship that will be part of the 30th Men’s Wellness Conference.

Wouldn’t this be a perfect time to invite a friend to join you for a weekend at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico? He could be a childhood friend, a school friend, a work friend, a recreation friend, or your best friend. He could also be a member of your extended family – a brother, father, son, or son-in-law.

Registration details will follow shortly. Watch for them on this website, Bring a friend and we’ll give you a free T-shirt if it’s his first Men’s Wellness event.

Hold the Dates – October 23-26, 2014

Mario Hinojoza


You are missed, Brother

At the NMMW Spring Retreat in April there was significant discussion about the untimely passing from this life of the young man Mario Hinojoza who was one of our Men’s Wellness brothers, having attended and been active in the past two NMMW Conferences. Mario took his own life early this year.  After much discussion of our grief, anger, and other emotions, it was suggested that we take a two part call to action for our benefit and the benefit of Mario’s young child.

1.  Each man who had a connection with Mario, no matter how brief, is asked to write a remembrance of Mario and send it to Robby Beck for compilation for use by Men’s Wellness members and to be given at an appropriate time to Mario’s child. Robby’s contact information is:

Robby Beck
P.O. Box 572
Clayton, New Mexico 88415

Office: (575) 374-2993
Cell: (575) 207-5992
Fax: (575) 374-8458

2. A goal of raising at least $1,000.00 for the benefit of the child to be administered through Barry McIntosh and Young Fathers of Santa Fe. Contributions should be sent to NMMW Treasurer Scott Dow at the address below,

Scott Dow
Treasurer, NMMW
9 Avalon Road
Santa Fe, New Mexico 87508

Phone: (505) 690-6645

Checks should be made out to “New Mexico Men’s Wellness” with a designation for the purpose of the “Mario fund.” Contributions made at the Spring Retreat have put us well on the way to reaching our goal.
