31st Annual NM Men’s Wellness
Winter Gathering

February 20–24, 2020

20/20 Vision

Uwe Schroeter and Lawrence Cook

As we come together for our Winter Gathering, may we reflect metaphorically with “20/20” perspectives on our past, present and future.

With every season comes the opportunity to take stock, to reflect, and—if necessary or to mix things up and recheck our vision for what lies ahead in the supportive company of other men. 

The “Blanketed Blanco Basin” is certainly covered already with a substantial base of 3 to 4 feet of snow.  Winter is here and ready for us.

Please join us for the 31st NMMW Winter Gathering to take some time out of our busy lives.  Please be prepared to check your “20/20 Vision” to share it with others and learn from them also.  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 contact:
