2017 Winter Gathering Feb 23-27


28th Annual NM Men’s Wellness Winter Gathering

February 23 – 27, 2017

Listen with Intensity

Uwe Schroeter and Lawrence Cook


“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
 ― Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

“It takes a great man to be a good listener.”
― Calvin Coolidge

Doesn’t it seem—today more than ever—that  who shouts the loudest, speaks most of the time or says the most outrageous things gets heard the most?  Why do some (smart!) people claim that we can achieve more in life by speaking less and listening more?  At this year’s NMMW Winter Gathering, our evening talking circles will focus on listening.  Please be prepared to share your very personal experiences on the balance of speaking and listening.


Please join us for the 28th NMMW Winter Gathering.  We will be active during the day, starting with morning meditation and/or Qigong.  We will have outings into the surrounding wilderness on snow shoes and skis.  We will play games, listen to and make music, and prepare and share communal meals.  Registration is now open.  For more information please contact:
