NMWW Summer Gathering

The Medicines of Connection—Inspired & Informed by Nature

July 25th for early campers

Program — 7pm Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28 — $45

Santa Fe National Forest, Jack’s Creek Campground,
20 miles N. of Pecos, NM

What if the signature wounds of our times are but expressions of deeper experiences of separation, disconnection and fragmentation? And what if an ecological literacy of wholeness, of innate belonging and worth and meaning lie already within us like a tap root growing toward nourishment?

And what if the medicines for reconnecting to ourselves and each other lie under our very feet, in the soil itself, in our forests and deserts, in our rivers and the integrated neurobiology of our brains, hearts and guts?

Join us for a co-creative listening and inquiring into, for a collective gathering of medicines from nature for our times; medicines that have been our birthright since before time was named. We’ll invoke spirit and soul, body and mind, the sciences and poetry, ancestors and progeny, story-telling and silence, the elemental forces including an optional sweat lodge, the wisdom in our fears, creativity and courage too.

Gathering Co-Conspirators Include:

Larry Glover Larry is an Eco-Educator/Therapist and Wilderness Guide. He works in service of awe, wonder and curiosity through the reclamation of our inherent belonging and worth, intrinsic meaning and wild resiliency. 

Marc Choyt is a social entrepreneur, small business owner, community/global activist working on hard rock mining issues; and a writer/occasional freelance journalist, who has lived in Santa Fe for thirty years.  

For more information, contact Larry at (505) 690-5939 or Marc at

Identify, cultivate and practice the medicines of connection— medicines already living within—as nature him—and her-self!


Registration is now open for the 2019 Summer Gathering.  For our planning purposes, please register as soon as you can.  We are using a new system to handle registrations that works for online payments (via credit card) or mail-in payments by check.  Please click here on Register for 2019 Summer Gathering to be taken to our registration page.  You will have the option of complete registration for more than one person if you choose.  Please register no later than July 19.  

Note: When you register, Eventbrite will offer “event insurance” based on the actual event cost.  You can purchase this as an option, but we at NMMW do not feel this is necessary. 

We reserved camp sites starting Thursday, July 25 at 3 PM with an official gathering start on Friday, July 26 at 7:00 PM and ending on Sunday, July 28 at noon.  Jack’s Creek is at approximately 9,000 feet elevation. There are modern outhouses and good drinking water is available.  Be prepared for possible monsoon rains. Also be prepared for hot and dry weather.  More detailed information for registered men will be provided prior to the Gathering. We look forward to seeing you at Jack’s Creek!

Support NMMW

New Mexico Men’s Wellness is an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation and all donations made are tax deductible under Federal tax law.  All of our registration materials include a place where you can designate and add a donation for our work to support the Men’s community in New Mexico and Southern Colorado.  We accept two “types” of donations:

  1. Scholarship Donations are reserved for direct financial support for men who need it to participate in our events and are restricted to that purpose.
  2. General donations are used to offset operating costs and enable us to put your support where it will do the most good for the largest number of men and help us keep our overall event costs as low as possible.

We tend to do what we do on a proverbial shoestring — just compare the cost of our events with those of any other groups — and any support that you can provide will be most appreciated (and, we promise, well used).  Any donations you choose to make can be entered on your registration form for the gathering. 

Share the Summer Gathering with Others

We have prepared a flyer about the Summer Gathering that we encourage you to share with friends and colleagues.  The flyer includes the link to this page for registration and more information. 


New Mexico Men’s Wellness wants all men to attend our events regardless of their ability to pay the full registration fees.  Toward that end, scholarships are available if you are in need of one.  If you are in need of financial support to participate, please contact Larry Glover (contacts below).
