California Men’s Gatherings (CMG) is a California community of thousands of men who get together for all sorts of events – from the healing to the hilarious and the sacred to the silly – from personal growth workshops to pool parties to theater outings to heart circles, and our very own trademark puppy piles. Plus our three times per year weekend-getaway Gatherings that some call “summer camp for men”.
We hold a local CMG event almost every week somewhere in the state with no membership dues at all. Since 1978, our organization has been a place that embraces diversity among men, including race, culture, socioeconomic or HIV status, age, body type, physical ability, education, financial circumstances, birth gender, gender fluidity, sexual orientation, beliefs, and spiritual practices. CMG fosters a safe, supportive, welcoming community where men challenge themselves to develop their emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual and physical lives – with as much fun as possible along the way!
