We are a place of discovery and creativity, where both individuals and groups come to learn, relax and recharge, and have conversations that matter. Read about the many ways to visit us on page 18.

WHAT IS 1440?

1440 is the number of minutes in a day, each one a chance to connect with what truly matters—both within and around us.


Unlike a university which focuses on the intellect, a multiversity is a place for holistic learning that engages the mind, body, and heart.

Campus Features 1440 Multiversity opened in May 2017 on the site of what was formerly Bethany College. Leading up to the opening, the campus was transformed with unparalleled craftsmanship and attention to detail. Some buildings were reconstructed and others built from the ground up. New walking paths were created, and walls were constructed stone-by-stone. All this, and more, in preparation for welcoming guests from around the world. As you explore campus, you’ll discover a variety of places and opportunities for introspection and connection: • Make yourself at home in guest rooms featuring modern, simple elegance • Walk across the stone bridge to the Lodge, and hear the soothing sound of water flowing among boulders in the stream • Sip cappuccino, chai, wine, or beer on the couch beneath European antique clocks in Common Grounds café, or take your drinks to the outdoor patio and relax by the cozy fire • Soak in the infinity tub overlooking the fragrant redwood forest.

Anger, Spirit, and Chasing the Big Questions: A Conversation with Alanis Morissette 1440: The release of Jagged Little Pill cemented you as an international music sensation. The iconic songs on that record resonated for millions. How do you think your work spoke to the cultural climate of the time? What do you believe people were needing to hear? Alanis: I think it was a validation of our humanity, on some level. For me to wrap my head around what created the zeitgeist—I can't even come close. I have absolutely no idea, but I can make some educated guesses.

PG. 16

“ You can’t go back to life as usual when you get cracked open. ” — Tricia A.

I was writing about my own microcosmic experience. When I write songs, I'm just writing for myself. They are the equivalent of a musical diary entry. And then once I share the song, it belongs to whomever is listening to it. I came quickly to understand that I wasn't alone in my challenges or suffering or pain. The experience opened me up, in a direct way, to how many people were suffering— and my career quickly anchored itself around wanting to consciously be a part of alleviating the suffering I began to more deeply sense.

1440: What cultural moment do you see your work speaking to now? What do you believe people need to hear today? Alanis: I think it's obvious to anyone who's noticing that culture has changed over the last 20 years. Consciousness is raising. The hood is being looked under, and the veil of conditioning is slowly lifting. It's going to take many, many years for this horror of conditioning to really turn around. The horror is the disallowance of our essential selves being expressed.

What’s happening now in culture, in the feminist movement, and in the consciousness movement, is that people are slowly moving toward awareness of their essential selves, which feels so liberating to me. Doing so leaves room for feelings and proprioceptive embodiment, mindfulness, all of these fantastic words that basically describe the idea of us coming home to ourselves, coming home to our bodies, not having to split off, not having to fight, flight, or freeze, healing traumas, recognizing what the traumas even are that keep us from living in a connected, inspired, and fulfilling way.

1440: For years, your lyrics and your message were described as angry. You have made a clear point to reframe that label as a compliment. Can you tell us more about that? How has anger served as a tool in your life? How has it encumbered you? Alanis: Oh, it is definitely a compliment.

Anger is such a vital, powerful, light-filled life force.

It can be labeled as feistiness or—in my experience—as passion, and it's a kick-starter. Anger can kick-start so many multiple forms of activism. It can kick-start art. It can kick-start a scary conversation. It can kick-start someone setting boundaries.

Every artist I know is angry on some level. The two life forces that move worlds in my mind are love and anger. To me, anger is a gorgeous indication of something needing to change. And then it becomes about following up with, well, what does need to change? What boundary needs to be set? What clarification needs to be expressed? What activism ultimately is being born within me or within a culture? Anger has helped me write a lot of songs. To write songs is such a generative, fiery act for me.

The only anger that would encumber me would be the acting out of anger that is destructive by behaving disrespectfully toward someone—ignoring their boundaries sexually, physically, emotionally, or intellectually. When anger is acted out, it's offensive and nobody wins.

1440: These days you are spending much more of your time publicly contributing to the conversation around consciousness and spirituality. How and why did you make that shift? What led you to want to speak and teach? Alanis: I have been part of this conversation for as long as I can remember, and my art and service has always been oriented toward this. I used to hide it. There was much more of a split in the '90s. It was compartmentalized, like—you're a rock and roll musician, or you're an academic, or you're a dancer, or you’re a spiritual teacher. It's almost as though you had to pick which egoic identity you wanted.

There seems to be more of a capacity to “hold the complexity” now—to allow for an integrated, multitudinous life and lifestyle. A painter can be a chef and be a scientist, and a scientist can, heaven forbid, talk about spirituality, and a yogi can be all about carpentry or neuroscience. It’s wildly exciting.

I think student and teacher are opposite sides of the exact same coin. So, my teaching is hollow if I'm not an avid student, and my studentship is a constant. I love chasing the big questions—there’s not a day that goes by when I'm not reading or researching or writing or philosophically thinking about something.

Th is inte rvie w was conducted by Kate G ree n Tripp, Managing Editor for 1440 Multive rs ity.

The China Study in Practice: Nutrition to Protect and Maximize Your Health


PG. 21



Why should someone consider switching to a whole-food, plant-based diet?

T. Colin: There are three levels of evidence. First, when we compare the data of different people consuming different diets, we see certain disease rates correspond to the consumption of various foods and nutrients. The data for this way of eating is very positive, but this doesn’t necessarily mean causation.

That’s where the second part comes in and where I spent most of my career: laboratory research where we examine certain nutrients. We have found impressive biologic mechanisms by which they may affect certain diseases, but because of the complexity of biology and the challenges of a reductionist approach to studying nutrients in isolation, we still can’t infer causality. So next we try intervention studies. When we feed people this kind of diet, we see positive health outcomes happen very fast. For example, we see things like substantial drops in blood cholesterol or changes in blood pressure within days.


The China Study in Practice: Nutrition to Protect and Maximize Your Health TUITION: $375 PLUS TWO NIGHTS


Did you start out your career trying to make a case for this way of eating?

T. Colin: No, in fact I came from exactly the opposite point of view. I was raised on a dairy farm and consumed lots of meat, milk, and eggs. I came into my career with the idea that the more animal-based food we could consume, the better off we would be.

But at one point I was working with children in the Philippines and the evidence was showing me the opposite. When I came back home I organized a study funded by the National Institutes of Health to try and prove my bias. That lasted three decades and came to be known as the China Study and proved the opposite of what I set out to prove. This i n te rv i e w w a s con d ucted b y Je n n B row n , a f reela n ce w ri te r, ed i tor, con te n t crea tor, a n d ed uca tor.

T. Colin Campbell 1440:

What does a whole-food, plant-based diet look like?

T. Colin: Whole means we eat the food whole. Instead of taking a vitamin C supplement or drinking orange juice, eat the orange. We choose vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and whole grains. Oil in food like nuts, avocado, and coconut are fine when left in the food, but avoid using it if it’s been extracted from the food. In that case it’s caloriedense and nutrient-poor and is a plant fragment, as opposed to a whole food.

PG. 22

The biggest difference for most people would be to avoid refined and processed food, dairy, and meat. Plant foods provide all the protein we need, absolutely all of it. We have enough evidence to make that argument.

“ The trip was a year in the making + totally worth the wait. ” — Tammi S.

T. Colin Campbell, PhD, is a biochemist at the forefront of nutrition education and research, specializing in the link between diet and disease— particularly the causation of cancer. He studied nutrition, biochemistry, and toxicology at Cornell and MIT, and subsequently spent 10 years on the faculty of Virginia Tech’s department of biochemistry and nutrition. Thomas M. Campbell, MD, a board-certified family physician, is medical director of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and cofounder and clinical director of the University of Rochester Program for Nutrition in Medicine.

A whole-food, plant-based diet has been found to have the potential to halt or reverse advanced heart disease, earlystage prostate cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and rheumatoid arthritis. Join T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell for an enlightening workshop based on their internationally celebrated diet and cancer research findings. Learn how what you eat can save your life. The Campbells’ international bestseller The China Study, one of the most influential nutrition books of our time, will inform this knowledge-rich weekend full of research highlights and practical guidance about the “why” and “how” of a wholesome, plantbased diet and healthy life.

1440: As a Buddhist meditation teacher, do you find it difficult to deal with this seeming saturation of stimulants from the digital world? How do you cope? How do we cope?

hate me!” The more we are lost in that way, the lonelier and more disconnected we feel.

Sharon: I love technology. I correspond via email, so much more than talking to someone on the phone. I feel it’s liberated me from the constraints of being in a different time zone, of always traveling, of people not knowing how to find me. I get all the news of the world from Twitter, and news of my friends from Facebook.

I have a student who is a university professor, who told me once how concerned he was about the way his students used social media to constantly compare themselves to others, usually feeling bad about just not being good enough. As he put it, “No one ever posts a photo of their mediocre meal.” I told him maybe it was an age thing: my people tended to post details about their shoulder surgery and other assorted sufferings. Of course much depends on how we use technology, and how much we use it. Addiction can be a fine line in these realms. Irrespective of age, taking a look at our intention before we post or even open our devices seems like a good idea—what do we really hope to get out of engaging in this way, at this moment? And I find it good to remember that pauses are essential—just being tuned in to stimulation all the time, unremittingly, can be exhausting.

“ It was an incredible campus. Highly recommend! ” — E. Potts

Sharon: I think the Dalai Lama put it very well when he said, describing himself, “I’ve never met anyone I consider a stranger.” I think about that statement often. Many of us meet a stranger and all the while hardly really notice them, we are so wrapped up in self-preoccupation: “What do they think of me? Do they like me? Do they like me more than they have ever liked anyone before? Oh no, I said something stupid. They must

In contrast, the Dalai Lama seems to be describing a state of genuine belonging no matter where you are, because you are so connected to your own body and mind, to the person or people you are with, to a bigger picture of life than just the immediate circumstances you find yourself in. I think he’s describing a sense of having a home wherever you go. That’s a state of deep happiness.

1440: In Real Love you wrote: “At those wounded moments when we most need love, a hardened heart can seem like the best defense.” This thought hits home for many of us. How can we not become hardened in hard times? How do we learn to offer an open heart in wounded moments when we need love? Sharon: Of course the first recipient of that loving heart is ourselves. An interesting exercise, when we are looking at our own fear, or anger, or jealousy, or craving, is to call it what it is—painful—instead of bad, or wrong, or weak, or only what we deserve. Those are states of suffering, and instead of armoring up against them, or denying them, or blaming ourselves for them, we can feel compassion.

We have the power of awareness to be able to look at our own feelings and reactions, our habitual thought patterns and behaviors to see for ourselves what brings us happiness and what makes us more contracted and unhappy. Many of us have been taught that, in effect, it’s a “dog-eat-dog world.” You’ve got to only look out for yourself, the more you can put others down the better you’ll feel, if you feel vulnerable you should hide it…But the more mindful we are, the more we see for ourselves that the opposite of the myths we have absorbed is often true. That gives us the courage to reach out more when we’re hurt, to practice extending and receiving generosity, to realize that, whatever state we are in, delighted or despondent, we are never really alone.

Lynne Twist on

Money, Scarcity, and Sufficiency


It’s really important on this planet to keep water moving. When water is held and hoarded, or stuck, it becomes stagnant and actually becomes poisonous. Same thing with money. When we hoard and hold on to money as if we've got to have it or it belongs to us, it starts to toxify. It starts to stagnate. It starts to make us the slave of it.

1 4 4 0.O R G / R E G I S T E R

This lens creates an "us and them" mentality. It's a deficit way of thinking about life. When we think there's not enough, we start thinking we're not enough, and we start having a deficit relationship with ourselves, particularly in this consumer culture that believes very deeply in scarcity thinking.

My understanding of money is that it needs to keep moving and that we can give money not only the capacity to move towards the highest good, but we can give it our wishes for the world, our intentionality, our clarity. And we can literally launder money for good. We can take money that is actually earned in ways that we're ashamed of and transform it by making it something that we use to make the world a better place.



We as a society, and this is particularly true for affluent societies, look through a lens of an unconscious, unexamined assumption that there's not enough to go around. It is a lens of scarcity that tells us we've got to get more of this or more of that and that someone, somewhere, is going to be left out. And so, if you unconsciously believe that, then you accumulate more than you need to make sure that you and yours are not left out. And you consider that responsible. You don't want to be among those who are left out or have people you love or care about among those who are left out.

PG. 42

You often talk about the myth or the lie of scarcity. What do you mean by that?

1440: Your book, The Soul of Money, explores this idea of how we can give soul to money. How do we do that? What does that look like?

Money doesn't have soul. It is innocent, just like water. But we can imbue it with soul, with commitment, with vision, and send it into the world in a way that does good and makes a difference.

Lynne: I believe that we're all caught in an unconscious, unexamined system of beliefs that we don't even know we have. It's almost like you have on glasses that you've worn so long that you don't realize they're not part of your body. And when you take them off, you see things very differently.

Lynne: I see money as a carrier or a current that flows through every life. It’s very much like water. Water can carry disease and pollution and infection. Water can also purify, cleanse, make things grow, and carry medicine. Water is innocent. It's how we use it and what we ask it to carry that makes it either purify, cleanse, poison, or toxify.

I think about Alfred Nobel, who started the Nobel Prize. His great fortune came from gunpowder and dynamite. It came from uses that have become horribly destructive on this planet. Yet he knew that, ultimately, that fortune came to him so that he could create peace. The Peace Prize is an example of the transformation of money. I call it laundering money in the best possible way—cleansing it.

time. Together, they make up what I call the lie of scarcity— an unconscious, unexamined belief system that has us behaving in ways that are inconsistent with our humanity.


If and as we allow the toxic myths to take hold, we become sick. By many accounts, we are deeply ill where money is concerned. What is the path to wellness? How do we teach financial wellness to the next generation?

Lynne: I have a principle that I would love to share because I think it sort of says it all. It is called the principle of sufficiency. Sufficiency is distinct from abundance. Sufficiency is the exquisite experience of enough, the exquisite experience of being met by the universe with exactly what you need over and over and over again. And I assert that is already the case in every single person's life.

The principle of sufficiency is this: if you let go of trying to get more of what you don't really need, which is what our society and our material consumer culture kind of drives us to want more of, it frees up oceans of energy that are all tied up in that chase, that frantic chase, to turn and pay attention to what you already have. When you pay attention to what you already have, when you nourish it, when you're grateful for it, and when you share it, it expands.

Let me say that again.

When you let go of trying to get more of what you don't really need, it frees up oceans of energy to turn and pay attention to what you already have. When you pay attention to what you already have, when you nourish it, when you're grateful for it, and when you share it, it expands. A shorter way of saying that is: what you appreciate appreciates. Th is inte rvie w was conducted by Kate G ree n Tripp, Managing Editor for 1440 Multive rs ity.

That actually proliferates what I call the second toxic myth, which is that more is better: more of anything, more of everything, more square feet in your house, more market share, more this, more that, more Mondays, more Tuesdays, more hours in the day, more hours in the night, more weekends, more everything. This "more is better" mentality has us accumulating way more than we need and living a life that is cluttered with stuff—which leads us to the third toxic myth, which is "that's just the way it is."

These three toxic myths really govern our relationship with money and, in many ways, our relationship with life and with

My experience at 1440 was life-changing. Through a magic combination of the caliber of the instructor, the topic we were exploring, and the interesting people in the workshop, I was able to get fully aligned with my priorities right now—and let go of things that were interfering with my ability to move forward. Something shifted at 1440. — Grace W., Guest at 1440 Of course the speakers are amazing, but it’s so much more than that, too. It’s the entire natural environment, the sunshine, the people, how authentic the staff is and every individual you meet.

It’s very much the opposite. You retreat and find refuge so you can create a deeper connection. —Rodney Yee, while teaching at 1440
