The Site

Both of our locations are situated right on the San Francisco Bay. The Learning Workshop and our evening events will be held at beautiful Fort Mason, a historic military garrison that now houses arts organizations, the world-famous Greens restaurant, reception facilities and more. Walk outside to enjoy the fresh Bay air, wave to sea lions, crabs and shore birds and to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Our conference will be held at the lovely Golden Gate Club at the Presidio, originally a military service members club and now a site for retreats, weddings and conferences. It is surrounded by fragrant eucalyptus trees and has a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Between our two sites is Crissy Field—originally a military airfield and now a restored tidal marsh—and the San Francisco Marina Yacht Harbor, where you can bark at the sea lions sunning themselves on the piers. The rest of San Francisco is just a bus or a taxi ride away.

For those of you visiting from different time zones—we recommend arriving a day or two earlier to enjoy beautiful San Francisco and to acclimate your body to San Francisco time. And why not come for the conference, and stay for a vacation? See more at Places and Things to Do in and around San Francisco.
