3 Ways to Stay

Choose a Program or Conference

Whether you come to 1440 as a seminarian, conference attendee, work scholar, workshop leader, or for Rest & Renewal, you leave knowing you can put yourself and the world together in new ways. You gain a new willingness to "lean in" and leave with a deeper sense of self. We believe there is power in immersion learning, setting aside daily urgencies and dedicating uninterrupted time and energy to focus on essential but often elusive priorities. Select a course from our research-based, cutting-edge programs, led by expert faculty, innovative thinkers and coaches. Our approach to teaching, learning, and growth is expansive and ever-evolving. Ultimately, everything at 1440 nourishes one goal: to make your experience here revelatory, no matter where you are in designing your life's journey.

Rest & Renewal

Discover the serenity of 1440 without being bound to a full-day schedule by electing to enjoy a variety of learning opportunities at your pace. Rest & Renewal experiences let you get away and participate for a day or multiple days. Inquire about our getaway packages, which offer the perfect blend of learning and leisure.  

Private Group Event
Rent space on our campus for a corporate retreat or group event and have access to campus amenities in between your scheduled meeting times. With unique options for team-building, fun and relaxing ways to spend downtime, and delicious meals, your group will have plenty of time to connect, collaborate and rejuvenate.  


Once you select a program or confirm your stay dates for Rest & Renewal, click Register, and you will be guided through room choices and checkout. The total package cost of your learning experience includes your choice of accommodations, community meals, signature classes, and any program tuition. If you have questions, please contact us.

The remaining 50% of your total stay package is due 30 days prior to arrival and will be charged to the credit card on file. For reservations made within 30 days of a program or arrival date your package must be fully prepaid.

  • Layerssuch as a sweater, jacket, or scarf-and rain gear
  • Walking or hiking shoes or sneakers with traction to enjoy our redwood trails
  • Exercise and yoga clothes
  • Water bottle with cap; we have water refill stations across campus, and we sell water bottles in the shop
  • Exercise or yoga mat (yoga mats are provided on a first-come basis)
  • Bathing suit and cover-up for the infinity-edge hot tub overlooking the redwood forest
  • Socks if you would feel more comfortable with your shoes off in program rooms
  • Robe (if you are booked in a shared room, you might enjoy some privacy)
  • Eye covers/ear plugsfor deeper sleep in shared rooms
  • Slippers and flipflopsgood for shared hall bathrooms
Plan to refrain from wearing heavily scented perfumes on campus, as some guests have sensitivities or allergies. We are a tobacco and flame-free environment, so you may not possess or bring tobacco products, vape pens, candles, incense, sage, or flammable materials onto the campus. See our FAQs for more details.

Arrival and Departure

We strive to have all rooms ready by 4:00 pm; however, the scheduled end time of some programs may impede our ability to do so. Arriving guests are invited to check-in as early as 2:15 pm and 1440 will store any luggage. You will be issued a temporary pass upon arrival, which you are required to exchange for your registration badge once your room is ready. Allow for a little extra time so that you don't feel rushed. Explore campus or enjoy a yoga or meditation class before dinner, which is served from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Opening night welcome and program sessions generally begin between 7:00 and 7:30 pm.
Checkout is required no later than 11:00 am on departure day. Since most program sessions end around lunch, a best practice is to checkout before your final session. Breakfast and lunch are included on your last day so retain your registration badge until after you have had lunch if you intend to dine after checking out. Otherwise, you are welcome to return your registration badge to the Lodge.

All our main campus buildings are accessible, and we offer a range of accessible housing types. The campus is on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous accessible pathway throughout the grounds. Each building has its own accessible path and is connected to a public way. To transport guests to and from the parking area and to ensure access between buildings that do not share an accessible path, we offer an accessible shuttle. For additional questions about accessibility and to coordinate your transportation while on campus, please contact us at least two weeks in advance of your arrival.
Add some time in neighboring San Francisco, the wine country of Sonoma or Napa, or Santa Cruz County to your 1440 visit.
