    What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?
    The health, security, safety and well-being of guests and employees are 1440 Multiversity campus priorities. 1440 closely follows alerts and information disseminated by the CDC, WHO and the Department of State each day, and continually amends safety protocol in keeping with state mandates and recommendations. For the detailed steps that 1440 takes to protect all on campus, please review the Campus Health & Safety Prevention Plan. What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?

    Can I bring my pet or service animal to 1440?
    • 1440 follows California law which only allows persons with disabilities to bring trained service dogs and psychiatric service dogs to campus. The protections discussed previously do not apply to emotional support animals. California law, like federal law, doesn't require that emotional support animals or family pets be allowed in public places.   
    • Individuals who have service animals are not exempt from and must comply with local city animal control and public health requirements, so please be sure your service animal meets all vaccination requirements and is properly registered and licensed. 
    • In California, an assistive animal means a trained animal that is necessary as a reasonable accommodation for a person with a disability and includes guide dogs, signal dogs, service dogs and psychiatric service dogs. Only a dog that is trained to recognize and respond to an individual's disability-related need for assistance can be considered a service dog. 
    • California law allows business owners to require that an assistive animal be (i) free from offensive odors and displays appropriate habits (for example, is potty-trained) and (ii) does not engage in behavior that endangers the health or safety of the individual with a disability or others around them. 
    • Since the ADA does not require service animals to wear a vest, ID tag or specific harness, it may not be obvious to the 1440 staff that your dog is a service animal. In such cases, we have the legal right to ask you the following two specific questions in support of your well-being:
      • Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
      • What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?  
    • As the animal handler, you are required to be in control of your service animal at all times. You are also responsible for caring for and supervising the service animal, which includes toileting; feeding; and grooming and veterinary care. 1440 is not obligated to supervise or otherwise care for any service animal. 
    • The service animal must be harnessed, leashed or tethered while in public places unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the person's disability prevents use of these devices. 
    • Seating, food and drink are provided for customer use only. The ADA gives a person with a disability the right to be accompanied by his or her service animal but 1440 is not required to, nor does it allow, a service animal to sit or be fed at the table. 
    • While 1440 does not charge guests any sort of fee for housing your service dog or cleaning its hair and dander, we will assess and charge you for any damage to the room or campus your service animal may cause as we would any other guest.

    Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer?

    Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer?
    1440 Multiversity is a place where all are welcome unbound by our differences. If you have never attended a retreat or program before, do not be discouraged. Read the program description carefully and follow your heart in terms of desire to learn. The majority of our guests book Rest & Renewal stay packages - which we highly recommend if you have never been to 1440 before - as a way to orient you to our offerings. 1440 is like a human charging station that stimulates one's curiosity, enhances self-awareness and allows guests to be more fully alive so they leave with more energy than they arrive with. We plug in all of our devices to recharge them and stays at 1440 are a way to re-energize ourselves. Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer?

    Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?
    Unfortunately not. There are no day passes issued and visitors are not allowed on campus due to the  operating license as a 501(c)(3) which restricts campus attendance to paid registered guests only - 1440 cannot sell or offer services to anyone that is not a registered attendee. Out of the respect and privacy of those who are immersed in learning, we require all guests to register at the Lodge upon arrival and only such guests are allowed on campus. 1440 strictly abides by and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00 if you are caught trespassing.

    • 1440 is a private campus and your registration badge is made exclusively for you, containing your name, dates of your stay and the program you are registered in. We deny access to facilities and services to everyone who does not visibly display their guest registration badge - based on the 501(c)(3) status of 1440 Multiversity as a learning destination, we are legally required to only serve guests that are registered to learn on our campus.    
    • The staff is expected to ask guests to identify themselves by wearing the badge provided to them upon arrival at the Lodge when entering classrooms, the community dining hall, Signature Classes, retail outlets, Healing Arts or any other public space on campus.   
    • Guests must visibly display their registration badges at all times and must present their badge to staff before being served or granted access to the private grounds of 1440. You will be asked for your badge so please wear it at all times. 1440 strictly abides by this policy and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00.

    • 1440 Multiversity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit learning destination that does philanthropic work based on five learning pillars - unlike hotels and resorts which are in the business of operating for-profit.  
    • No one can stay at 1440 unless they are registered to learn, whereas hotels are open publicly to everyone. 
    • 1440 offers a minimalist approach to design and function while hotels offer more modern comforts; therefore, guests at 1440 spend the majority of their time outside of their guest room engaged in immersive learning and community building activities with limited distractions. 1440 has no minibars, in-room coffee makers, televisions, telephones or room service, typical to most full-service hotel and resorts.
    • There is no a la carte restaurant with tableside service at 1440. Community dining is provided in Kitchen Table where all guests enjoy the same menu items (which change daily) during pre-defined meal service hours. 
    • There are no bottled waters in the guest rooms at 1440. Guests are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and utilize the complimentary filtered water-filling stations in each building around campus. 
    • 1440 expects all guests to honor the 10:00 p.m. lights-out and quiet time mandate to afford all guests a good night's rest to optimize the learning experience - all public campus facilities are typically closed at this time.
    • All guests have access to Signature Classes facilitated by 1440 teachers at least three times a day. 
    • Traditional resort offerings such as valet parking, bellman and concierge services are not offered at 1440. 
    • Guests at 1440 are not allowed to invite others to visit since the campus is private and closed to all non-registered guests. There are local restaurants and bars nearby should guests wish to meet a friend off campus.

The ADA requires that accessible rooms be "dispersed among the various classes of guest rooms" to provide people with disabilities "choices of types of guest rooms, number of beds, and other amenities comparable to the choices provided to other guests." 
    • Since 1440 is the site of a former college, it is important to note that the campus is situated on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous convenient accessible pathway between points on campus; however, it is accessible. To ensure access between buildings that do not have an accessible path between them, we offer an accessible shuttle. This shuttle is provided to transport guests from parking areas to accessible pathways leading to campus buildings and to transport guests between accessible pathways so that they can enter each building. 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 at (844) 544-1440 (Option 1) or [email protected]

  • What is mindfulness?

    What is mindfulness?

    What is mindfulness?
    • Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present - a sense of awareness of where we are and what we're doing in the present moment while not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around us. Whenever you bring awareness to what you are directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you are being mindful. Growing research shows that when you train your brain to be mindful, you are transforming the physical structure of your brain and doing so can be good for your overall health and well-being. 
    • 1440 Luminary Faculty Definitions of Mindfulness: 
      • SYLVIA BOORSTEIN: "Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn't more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it." 
      • DANIEL J. SIEGEL: "Mindfulness in its most general sense is about waking up from a life on automatic and being sensitive to novelty in our everyday experiences. With mindful awareness the flow of energy and information that is our mind enters our conscious attention and we can both appreciate its contents and come to regulate its flow in a new way. 
      • JON KABAT-ZINN: "Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: On purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally." 
      • SHARON SALZBERG: "Mindfulness isn't just about knowing that you're hearing something, seeing something, or even observing that you're having a particular feeling. It's about doing so in a certain way - with balance and equanimity, and without judgment. Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in a way that creates space for insight."

    Two guests in the same traveling party who know each other or that are related may share a room, provided each guest is independently registered because all pricing is arranged on per-person package basis. Since all guests who stay at 1440 must be registered to learn, there are no options for anyone to share a room with you without being registered and paying the per-person package price.

Guests who have no preference regarding who their assigned roommate will be for specified workshop programs simply select the "shared accommodation" option when offered and will then meet their roommate upon arrival to 1440.
