About 1440 Multiversity

1440 Multiversity is a place to experience time differently—exploring what matters to you, while surrounded by fresh air, delicious food, wellness classes, many ways to unwind, and opportunities to connect with yourself and others. Whether you come for a program with world-renowned faculty or spend a weekend on campus taking 1440 specialty classes, you can look forward to the perfect blend of learning, vacation, and space for reflection.

The natural world has been an inspirational catalyst of wonder and creativity for 1440 since its inception. It was while spending time in her garden that cofounder Joanie Kriens recognized the beauty of the moment she was in, and thought about all of the minutes available to experience the feeling of being fully alive. That’s the inspiration for 1440. Once Joanie and her husband Scott decided to cofound a place where people could stay and explore what’s most meaningful to them, this 75-acre campus became the clear choice because of its towering, ancient redwoods.

"It is like 'grown up Disneyland' for people who want to eat, breathe, and live rejuvenation and energy." - Marisa

It’s easy to get caught in the churn of daily life, and lose track of why we are living in the first place. Founders Scott and Joanie Kriens had a vision to create a place dedicated to exploring life’s most fundamental (and challenging) questions.


"The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose."
- Arnold Bennett
