Yeske Buie Retreat and Open House in San Francisco
The Yeske Buie Team came together earlier this month for one of our semi-annual staff retreats, this one focused on mindfulness and servant leadership.
Our retreat was held at the 13,000 acre Anvil Ranch, located 36 miles west of Healdsburg in Sonoma County, California. We had a great time exploring the natural beauty of the Ranch while learning the value of breath and mindfulness practices and engaging in several team building exercises, including the construction of two labyrinths. For our opening night dinner, Ranch staff prepared pizza in an outdoor wood-fired oven which we enjoyed while seated in the middle of a vineyard. Our staff also formed two cooking teams which twice took turns preparing a full dinner for each other. All of this ultimately prepared us for an intense and productive session setting Yeske Buie’s firm goals for 2014.
On the afternoon of November 7, we drove back to San Francisco ready to open our doors for the Open House. We were pleased that so many of you were able to join us and enjoy the food, the wine, the fortune teller, and especially the “Live Big” wine glasses!
Below are pictures we took throughout both events.
