How Daily Mindfulness Enhances Your Brain AN

1440: HOW DO YOU DEFINE MINDSIGHT? DAN SIEGEL: “Mindsight,” a term I came up with years ago, is a combination of insight into your own internal life (the subjective experience of your feelings and thoughts) and how you see the mental life of someone else (empathy). It also includes a third process called integration, which means linking different aspects of a system, whether within yourself or between yourself and others.

1440: HOW IS IT THAT INTEGRATION PROMOTES WELL-BEING?

clustered areas or regions, and you can study the specific circuitry that connects those separate (differentiated) areas. Research done by the Human Connectome Project shows that mindfulness increases the interconnectivity of the

connectome—the network of widely distributed neural connections in the brain. Another set of studies shows that the level of connection in your connectome—the level of integration—is the best predictor of well-being. All regulation—like regulating your emotions, mood, attention, thoughts, behavior, relationships, or even morality—appears to be dependent on integration in the brain. So the more connected your neural mechanisms are, the more integrated you will be and the more self-regulating you’ll be in all these areas of your life. 1440: AND ARE THERE SPECIFIC TOOLS THAT WE CAN USE TO DEVELOP MINDSIGHT AND INCREASE OUR LEVEL OF INTEGRATION?

DAN: In the brain, there are 100 billion neurons in different

DAN: I developed a practice called the Wheel of Awareness that integrates consciousness by differentiating the

experience of the knowing of awareness from the knowns of awareness. The knowing of awareness is in the metaphoric hub of the wheel while the knowns, like thoughts, feelings, or what you experience with your senses, are on the rim of the wheel. The practice takes you through each of these knowns by moving the spoke of your attention around on this visual image. As you do this, you’re literally differentiating (recognizing the differences) between these elements of consciousness and linking them to each other.

What we do know is that where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows. You have the capacity to focus your attention in new ways to get neural firing to flow to areas that are not differentiated or not linked. In this way, you can literally change the structural connections in your brain with what you do with your mind. change the

You can literally structural connections in your brain with what you do with your mind.

1440: ARE THERE OTHER PRACTICES THAT DO THE SAME KIND OF THING?

DAN: Yes, there are probably hundreds of what we call MAPs (Mindful Awareness Practices) that work, but most of my research has been done with the Wheel of Awareness. In preliminary studies at the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA, we’ve found that with mindfulness meditation we get more improvements in attention, sustaining attention, and avoiding distractions, than we do with medication.

1440: WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A PRACTICE THAT HELP SOMEONE DEVELOP MINDSIGHT?

DAN: Different people need different things—some people will need to move and others will need to be still—but for any practice to work, I think it needs to create energy and information flow patterns that are integrative. For example,

mindfulness of the breath works because it differentiates the sensation of the breath from the observation of the sensation. That may sound subtle, but it’s huge. To be able to distinguish “being aware” from “the thing you’re aware of” is the key to beginning the integration process. 1440: HOW DOES INTEGRATION IN THE MIND RELATE TO OUR RELATIONSHIPS? DAN: The self may come from the mind, but the mind doesn’t just come from the brain. I like to say the mind is bigger than the brain and the self is broader than the body. Twenty-five hundred years ago, Hippocrates said the mind comes from the brain, and we’ve been operating under that fallacy ever since. When we think this way, we conclude that the self is a solo operator. But I think the body is like a node in a system. We’ve mistaken that node for the self, when in fact the self is actually the whole system and is connected to everyone and everything. This really broadens the self beyond just the body.

When you start thinking about it this way, you realize the self is not just a “me,” we’re also a “we.” If that is the case, then an integrated self is a “mwe.” There is still me and you (differentiation), but together we are a mwe (integration). Think of the ocean as an example. Can you imagine if the hydrogen atoms started fighting with the oxygen atoms over whose identity was more important? I think that’s what modern society has done. We fight over whether we’re hydrogens or oxygens and miss the point that we are a whole ecosystem.

teeth. You don’t wait until you have a rotten tooth that needs extraction before you start brushing. There is dental hygiene and I think we need mental hygiene—regular inner practice to create outer wisdom. You need a way to keep things differentiated but linked, and when you practice that, it will carry over into moments of stress.

1440: IF THERE IS ONE MYSTERY THAT YOU COULD SOLVE RIGHT NOW, WHAT QUESTION WOULD YOU WANT ANSWERED? DAN: I would love to know how we help humanity broaden

our sense of self to include other people, other organisms, and the entire living ecosphere. We are in a moment right now—given everything that’s happening in the world and the number of people that are here on earth—where the future of humanity depends on the expansion of consciousness. It literally depends on our sense of who we are. The biggest mystery to me is how can we take human consciousness and enable it to go past the brain’s obvious vulnerability of thinking the self is just a body. I’d like to find an effective, practical tool—in pretty rapid order—so that we can start turning things around. We have to work on this together as a mwe. This interview was conducted on behalf of 1440 Multiversity by Jenn Brown, a freelance writer, editor, content creator, and educator.

There is dental hygiene and I think we need mental hygiene—regular inner practice to create outer wisdom.

1440: THINKING OF RELATIONSHIPS FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE, HOW WOULD YOU RESPOND WHEN YOU’RE IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION WITH A PARTNER, A CHILD, A BOSS, OR EVEN ANGRY WITH SOMEONE YOU DON’T KNOW, LIKE A POLITICIAN? DAN: When you give people the opportunity to develop their mind, they learn how to drop down into the hub of the Wheel of Awareness—which I also call presence or the plane of possibility. You can see what’s going on in the news and feel the thoughts and emotions associated with that, and you know how to drop down beneath reactivity into the plane of possibility. From there you can see alternative pathways you can take. If you’re in an argument with someone face-to-face, dropping into the hub will give you a little space between impulse and action and maybe you can react differently.

You want to make sure you’re working on your mind, not just in the heat of the moment but at other times. Find a practice and make it part of your daily routine, just like brushing your PG. 15

TAR A

B R ACH

1440: HOW CAN WE SEE DIFFICULT THINGS—LIKE DIVORCE, DEATH, JOB LOSS, OR UNCERTAIN POLITICAL TIMES—AS OPPORTUNITIES TO BECOME MORE ALIVE? TARA: We spend a lot of time in a trance, immersed in planning and worrying. We live in a habitual cocoon of thoughts. When we encounter suffering it wakes us up from our reverie, and we are compelled to open up to a larger reality, to contact a deeper source of wisdom and compassion. When we get that wake-up call, we can tighten our defenses and get more aggressive, or we can choose to let it be an opportunity.

If you live with the aspiration, “May whatever arises in my life serve the awakening of my heart,” and if you practice holding up that lens to whatever arises, then over time the initial feelings of victimization or resentment shift and you realize that this, too, can serve awakening. Much like a butterfly uses the pressure of the cocoon to grow, strengthen, and break free into something completely transformed, we can use difficult times in the same way. In

Biosphere 2, a closed ecosystem experiment that was tried in Arizona, the trees that grew inside this giant greenhouselike structure were weak because they were never exposed to wind and so didn’t develop the stronger “stress wood” needed to help them grow to old age. In this same way, you need the stress of being part of a larger net of life in order to awaken your heart and keep emerging and evolving into who you really are. 1440: HOW CAN WE BEGIN TO MAKE THE SHIFT? TARA: First we need to stop arguing with reality and asserting that things should be different than they are.

Anytime the word “should” appears, that’s a sign that we’re not open to things as they are. We argue with reality by blaming, hating, or being angry with ourselves or others. These are barriers against love, and we tend to maintain these barriers through incessant dialogue and narrative in our mind. If I’m nudging my husband to be different than he is or judging myself for something I do or don’t do, my

heart is not going to be open. Fighting reality with our thoughts is a losing battle. Dividing ourselves from others, making them the enemy, creates an “unreal other,” and we can’t sense the fullness and truth of who they are as living beings.

of the brain that helps calm down the fight-or-flight system.

Anytime the word “should” appears, that’s a sign that we’re not open to things as they are. We argue with reality by blaming, hating, or being angry with ourselves or others.

But the good news is we don’t have to believe our thoughts. This is where meditation comes in. It takes training and practice, but when we become mindful of thoughts we stop assuming they’re reality and we see we don’t have to believe them. Recognizing our thoughts for what they are allows us to let them go. When we do, when our hearts and minds are no longer controlled by divisive thoughts, we can begin to see a larger reality beyond “us vs. them” or “I’m bad.”

1440: WHEN WE LET GO OF OUR THOUGHTS AND ARE LEFT WITH OUR FEELINGS, HOW DO WE MANAGE THE ONES THAT OVERWHELM US?

The next step is to allow the feeling to be there—to have a conscious intention to give room to it. I use two questions to help with this. The first is “What’s happening inside me right now?” At this point I want to contact the feeling in the body, so I see what’s going on in my chest and my belly and my throat, investigating where the feeling lives and how it’s expressing. Then I ask, “Can I be with this?” This is a critical element in emotional healing, to be able to offer a gentleness and kindness to the feeling. I will often say, “You belong. You are a wave in my ocean.” As soon as you give the message that “this belongs too,” there’s no resistance, and the emotion can unfold itself and be integrated into the greater whole. 1440: IT SEEMS COUNTERINTUITIVE TO APPROACH THAT WHICH WE CANNOT TOLERATE WITH KINDNESS.

TARA: The familiar cocoon of thoughts is a way to keep us

removed from feeling difficult feelings.

TARA: When you begin to practice feeling your feelings,

As soon as we say, “This is just a thought. I don’t have to believe it,” then we have access to, and we get in touch with, what we’ve been avoiding. You might wonder, “Why would I want to hang out with what I’ve been avoiding?!” Because it’s only by opening to what we’re running from, or by feeling what we’re unwilling to feel, that we can begin a process of genuine healing.

you may just barely be able to find the willingness to contact what’s there. To be fully open to it, there has to be gentleness or softness. In order for our feelings to come out of the shadows, they need to feel safe enough—they need to feel receptivity, kindness, and gentleness from us. Turning toward love is the step that allows us to fully embrace and transform suffering. The moment there’s a kind light or warmth—whether it comes from self or others—our heart awakens and separateness dissolves.

1440: YOU OFTEN ADVISE THAT WE “FEEL OUR FEELINGS.” HOW DO WE DO THIS?

1440: HOW IS OUR OWN HEALING CONNECTED TO EVERYONE’S HEALING?

TARA: There are different degrees of how conscious we

are of our feelings. We can have a glancing awareness, or we can have a deeply engaged presence and fully feel something from the inside out. There is a spectrum, and it’s not necessary with every arising feeling to take the deep dive. But the big feelings we typically run from—we need to bring a full and engaged presence to those feelings. Let’s say I’m feeling fear. Just being able to start by naming that “fear is here” is powerful. There has been research that shows that the moment you name an emotion, it activates the part PG. 17

TARA: When our limbic system has been hijacked—when

we’re being run by fear and anger—our way of trying to feel safe or comfortable will be to protect ourselves, attach to others, or be aggressive. While this may give a temporary fix, it only confirms the sense of being stuck in a separate, threatened self. When we deepen attention with mindfulness and compassion, that sense of separateness starts to dissolve. We FA L L / W I N T E R


The familiar cocoon of thoughts is a way to keep us removed from feeling difficult feelings. begin to make what I call a U-turn, and shift our attention from the bad (or threatening or needed) other, to offering kind, clear attention to our own vulnerability. We sense where we are feeling unlovable, lonely, frightened, or ashamed, and we actively express compassion. This might mean putting a hand on our heart or cheek and offering a message of love, such as “I’m here with you. I care.” As we embrace the parts of our own being that need attention, we awaken a compassionate presence that naturally embraces those around us, including the earth and all life. When we are whole and live from the fullness of our being, everything is experienced as part of our heart and we naturally act on behalf of each other and all beings.

Being Present for Personal and Professional Happiness

F O R W O M E N O N LY

If you have ever felt like a piece of taffy being pulled in several directions at once, you are not alone. Never before have women been called upon to play so many roles simultaneously. The key to consistently functioning at a high level lies in taking advantage of the healthy boost that stress gives us, while managing competing priorities. Too much stress can be harmful, but healthy stress lights up our brain circuits and focuses our attention. This weekend, you will learn strategies to manage stress, use it to your advantage, and experience greater efficiency, happiness, and wellbeing in everything that you do.

Addiction, and Healing GA BO R MAT É

Contrary to what is often claimed, the source of addictions is not to be found in genes, but in the early childhood environment where the neurobiology of the brain’s reward pathways develops and the emotional patterns that lead to addiction are wired into the unconscious. Stress, both then and later in life, creates the predisposition for addictions. So how do we help the addicted individual restore wholeness? This weekend, Gabor Maté presents cutting-edge science that challenges many long-held beliefs about addiction. For those with addictions and their loved ones, mental-health professionals, and others interested in the topic, this important weekend provides a transformative opportunity for better understanding and deepening compassion.

Life and death are a package deal. You can’t really pull them apart. In fact, in Japanese Zen, the term “shoji” translates as “life-death.” There is no separation between life and death other than a small hyphen, a thin line that connects the two. We cannot be truly alive without maintaining an awareness of death. This program is an invitation to reclaim the spiritual dimensions of shoji, revealing both the precarious and precious nature of your life. Together, we will illuminate what matters most, be reminded not to squander this life, and benefit now from the wisdom that death has to teach. Tuition $395 plus 3 nights

Busy? This is the program for you! Put things on pause for a few days and learn practical skills for creating a more productive, sustainably balanced, and creative life. Through an immersion in yoga and Ayurvedic life skills, as well as a deep dive into authentic communication, you will learn and experience: • A multidimensional Ayurvedic plan for working in a more balanced way • Strategies for eating well in the work environment • Practices for changing the belief structure that keeps you stressed and imbalanced. Find out how making balanced, lifeenhancing choices is not only healthy for your body and mind but also has an excellent return on investment.

Learning as a Practice

A Yoga-Inspired Journey

A A RO N S T ERN AND M A R I ANNE MURRAY

K IRA SLOANE

Leadership today depends on our ability to learn, evolve, and transform. It requires inquiry into a new question: who are you as a human being? Join the Academy for the Love of Learning founder, Aaron Stern, and core faculty member Marianne Murray for an exploration of what it means to lead from the wholeness of your being—whatever your role or vocation. Through a carefully orchestrated sequence of conversations, experiential activities, and reflection you will: • Connect with your somatic sense of leading • Understand learning as an essential engaged awareness practice • Learn a model for working with experience as a catalyst for transformation • Connect with your own unique expression.

Putting the pause on life, we can engage in full self-attention and selfacceptance, remembering that like any good relationship, the one with ourselves requires our time and attention! Our intention this week is pratyahara—a yogic concept meaning turning the senses inward. We will develop this skill in many ways, orienting again and again to our inner wisdom. This is not a sweaty yoga workshop; we will move, we will sit, we will converse, laugh, and investigate. We will practice yoga postures, breath awareness, and meditation, and engage in discussions. You will return home with a much clearer sense of your amazing self.

NI C K FLY NN Writing memoir can take you into the unknown of your misremembered past and allow you to push more deeply into the shadows. As we work together, you will look for those moments when you begin to stutter and stumble when talking about your project. From there, you will wrestle with the deeper mysteries and the concept of bewilderment, and how memoirs can embody both—through syntax, access to the duende, leaps into the unconscious, or simply circling around what is unsaid, unknown, and unrealized. You will take home unexpected insights and a richer connection to the questions that can drive your memoir forward. Tuition $385 plus 5 nights

Your pelvic floor supports some of the most vital physical processes for a long and healthy life, including breathing, balance, hip function, core timing, and more.

Developed by Richard Schwartz, IFS draws on systems thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own viewpoint and qualities. In this workshop, you will learn: • How to use IFS for identifying and engaging with the various parts of yourself • How and why these parts swing into action in ways that prevent you from experiencing the happiness and fulfillment you seek • To lead your life from the Self, an inner essence of calm, clarity, curiosity, courage, and connectedness.

During this in-depth workshop with physical therapist and professional yoga therapist Shelly Prosko, you will experience an empowering combination of therapeutic yoga sequences and physical therapy movements that you can continue at home on your own. Get proactive about moving through the stages of your life with more ease, stability, and security. You will return home feeling great, with everything you need to continue to use what you’ve learned for ongoing well-being and confidence. Tuition $795 plus 5 nights

Ambiguous Loss and the Myth of Closure

Parenting with Presence—and Without Power Struggles!

PAU LINE BOS S Pauline Boss created the term “ambiguous loss” for losses that remain unclear, unverified, and thus without closure. An ambiguous loss can occur when a loved one has moved far away; there has been a divorce, adoption, or irreparable quarrel; or even as the result of war or political upheaval. Or, someone is missing psychologically because of dementia, serious mental illness, addiction, or a brain injury. Ambiguous losses cannot be fixed or cured. The solution is the resilience to live with ambiguity. This weekend, featuring illustrative stories and small group discussion with Dr. Boss, we learn how to live well, find meaning, change, and discover new hope. Tuition $325 plus 2 nights

Ancient Art of Effortless Power

Your Mind, Ignite Your Heart, Awaken Your Life

L EE H OLDEN

DAVID H. WAGNE R

Qigong is the ancient art of effortless power. Combining moving meditation, flowing movement, and energy training, qigong is embodied mindfulness. By synchronizing breath with movement and awareness with flow, qigong practitioners enter into a state called “flow.” Flow is a peak state of energy and consciousness. It is a state sought after by athletes, artists, poets, musicians, entrepreneurs, inventors, and others; most people have experienced flow at some point, in moments of creativity, passion, having a great conversation, falling in love.

“There’s no one right way to meditate,” teaches David H. Wagner, who developed the Living Meditation method of inner transformation over 20 years of teaching meditation. Instead of one tool, Living Meditation offers 27 powerful ancient techniques honed and adapted to suit modern practitioners because no two meditators are alike—and because life changes.

This workshop is mindfulness supercharged. By working with qi, mindfulness practice becomes enriched, deepened, and sustained, inviting you to access your peak performance and tap into your full potential.

During this engaging week, you will experience guided meditation and discussions about how to apply the fruit of practice in daily life. Whether you want to start a daily practice or simply learn tools to shift your mood when needed, you will take home invaluable resources to last a lifetime. Tuition $395 plus 5 nights

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Resource Tapping™ are effective treatments for trauma, and, as many therapists working in the field know, must be adapted to meet the needs of the individual. EMDR therapy is an art, not a formula to be used the same way with everyone. This conference focuses on how to use EMDR with clients who need more than a traditional approach—clients who require understanding and adaptations in order to heal from trauma. Through presentations, case material, videos of EMDR sessions, and experiential exercises, you will learn methodology for a client-centered, adaptive, and culturally sensitive approach to the treatment of trauma that includes:

1440 Multiversity offers continuing education units (CEUs) for a wide variety of programs. Please visit 1440.org/credits for more information.

• Adaptations for EMDR protocols in clinical practice for adults, children, and adolescents • Ideas for how to work cross-culturally, in a way that is safe, and inclusive • Innovative applications in the treatment of addictions, anxiety, childhood trauma, attachment trauma, and pain. In this conference, led exclusively by EMDR-trained therapists, you will gain new ways to use EMDR that will enhance and improve your clinical practice. Tuition $725 plus 4 nights (Pre-conference and conference) Tuition $625 plus 3 nights (Conference only) For complete pre-conference and conference workshop descriptions, please visit 1440.org/emdr. L AUREL PARNELL, PHD, is a leading EMDR pioneer and expert, developer of Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) and Resource Tapping™, founder and executive director of the Parnell Institute, and author of five books on EMDR.

Awakening to Love

At the intersection of mindfulness practice and the Twelve Step process is a deep, rich path to recovery and a return to joyful living. In recent years, the blend of mindfulness and recovery has brought hope, inspiration, and change to many thousands of those in recovery. Through a range of contemplative practices, including meditation, mindfulness, and lovingkindness, you will practice skills that allow your heart to open and soften while you cultivate a solid connection to your inner strength and wisdom.

The grieving process sets in after any form of loss, whether it is the loss of a beloved, a pet, a job, a dream, or your youth. Regardless of one’s belief system, our natural human response to loss, any loss, is grief. Antonio Sausys offers techniques for transforming grief into a source of selfknowledge, including: • Sharing and normalizing grief • Techniques that address the delicate mechanisms responsible for the grief reaction • How yoga philosophy and practice can assist you in going through difficult times.

This is a special opportunity to spend time with Kevin and Bill together to learn practices and perspectives to successfully continue your recovery journey.

The tools and wisdom you take away from this weekend allow you to reestablish who you are, after loss, based on your true spiritual essence.

Five Element Qigong

G IF T YO U RS ELF SOME N O U RIS HIN G TIME AWAY THIS H OLIDAY.

S I F U MAT T HEW COHE N Qigong is an ancient Asian system of health and self-development. Its slow, circular, repetitive movements invoke a sense of inner peace and relaxation. The practice involves meditation and movement, which develops internal calm and brings the body into greater harmony.

Consider an R&R booking to recharge, reset, and refresh.

The ancient Chinese scholars believed that the universe consists of five basic elements—metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. Five Element Qigong works with these elements and what they correlate to within our bodies. Join Sifu Matthew Cohen for an immersion into this qigong practice, which is done in alternating intervals of standing poses and walking meditation, and take home a complete practice you can use in your daily life.

Mind-Body Education Conference

It’s time for us to reimagine how schools can prepare students for success in college, career, and community, as well as equip them with evidence-based tools for cultivating new habits for health and well-being over a lifetime. The research is compelling—students’ academic achievement is highly dependent on cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being. In this gathering for educators, administrators, parents, and education policy makers, we will explore the emerging science and the practices that can ensure we’re adequately addressing all of these aspects for our students.

The Art and Science of Connecting Mind, Body, and Emotions for Student Success

In keynote talks, we will examine emotional intelligence and how it is linked to academic achievement, delve into the neuroscience of learning and executive functions, unpack the impact of adversity and trauma on learning, and explore the neurobiology of adolescents. A panel of teachers, students, and school leaders will explore innovations and success stories. Break-out sessions will give us the opportunity to dive deeper into topics like mindfulness, difficult emotions, CARE for Teachers, mindsets for learning, school climate, integrating movement into instruction, and systems thinking. We will also have the chance to view and discuss The Mask You Live In, a film by Jennifer Siebel Newsom.

MI C H AEL CAR ROLL Most of us spend a good amount of our time working. And, for many of us, our professional life can often feel like an unruly journey—sometimes exhilarating, other times discouraging, at times creatively fulfilling or tragically toxic. Is it the job that is distressing or is it the mind that we bring to the task? This week, join Michael Carroll, a meditation teacher and former corporate executive, and learn: • Mindfulness meditation to confidently explore work’s conflicts with an open, courageous, and agile mind • How present-moment awareness transforms hassles into valuable opportunities for growth • Practices to cultivate characteristics for thriving in today’s vibrant workplace.

Effective leadership isn’t about just checking off more tasks. It’s defined by how well we use our minds, access our inner wisdom, and interact with others. Our workplaces are churning out burned-out leaders, who report little bandwidth for big-picture thinking, innovation, and truly understanding others. The skills to work with our minds, our emotions, and other people are essential—and can be developed. Join executive coach and Search Inside Yourself (SIY) facilitator Meg Levie and mindfulness trainer Peter Bonanno as they guide you in experiences proven to foster greater self-awareness, self-mastery, and authentic connection with yourself and others. Return home with lifelong tools for balance and insight and the ability to inspire others. Tuition $850 plus 3 nights

Join the centuries-old tradition of famous and non-famous people who have been moved to write ethical wills. In an experiential format, you will learn: • How to start the process and authentically express the values and life lessons you wish to share • Methods for linking your personal legacy with your financial and philanthropic legacy • How this process helps you align with how you want to live and lead in your life right now.

The Servant Leadership Experience: Serve First, Lead Second

Authentic Leadership Immersion

J O N GORDO N, K E N BL AN CHARD, AND MA R JORIE BL ANCHARD

BI L L GEO RGE A N D S COT T KR I E NS

We believe the world is in desperate need of a different foundation for leadership and that Servant Leadership is the answer. When people lead at a higher level, serving first and leading second, they make the world a better place because their goals are focused on the greater good.

In this cutting-edge course, Harvard Business School (HBS) professor Bill George, former Juniper Networks CEO Scott Kriens, and their faculty colleagues will lead you through a journey to discover your True North and become a better leader. Authentic Leadership Immersion is based on Bill’s breakthrough courses at HBS that have helped more than 10,000 leaders, and the Leader Circles that Scott pioneered at Juniper.

As a result, they help individuals and organizations achieve worthwhile results while acting with respect, care, and fairness for the well-being of all involved. In this workshop we will focus on the heart (character), the head (beliefs), the hands (behavior), and the habits (strategies) to help you recalibrate how you want to lead in the world.

Make yourself at home. Our housing is designed for sharing. On purpose. Some people come with friends or partners. And for many, we delight in matching roommates,* as we know sharing a room with someone new can open us up to fresh experiences. It’s part of the fun and adventure of 1440. Accommodation rates start as low as $165 per person, per night, plus tax** and include a host of amenities beyond the bed you sleep in. From modern Asian-style shared sleeping spaces for eight all the way to decadent fireplace suites with slate patios overlooking the redwoods, we have a range of incredible room choices for every taste and budget. And if you find yourself in need of a truly private respite, because sometimes we all do, there are a limited number of single rooms available, and our shared accommodations can also be booked privately for an additional fee. *Roommates are matched by gender. **Prices subject to change without notice. Please visit 1440.org/accommodations for current rates.
