In large and small groups, they will take up the possibilities of this moment to generatively inhabit the spaces of our lives and renew common life in a fractured world. There will be shared meals and music in the evenings, and plenty of space across the three days for restoration, one-on-one conversation, and quiet reflection. Participants will then return to their communities with ideas, practices & relationships to share in the spirit of On Beings’s Civil Conversations Project & Krista’s NY Times best-selling book, Becoming Wise.
1440 Multiversity -named for the 1440 minutes in a day, was founded on the belief that each minute is an opportunity to be present and aware of how we connect with what matters, both within and around us. The nation’s newest learning destination focusing on immersion workshops for integrated living.

Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living by Krista Tippett, 2016.
In Becoming Wise, Krista Tippett has created a master class in living for a fractured world. Fracture, she says, is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life for this century, nurtured by science and “spiritual technologies,” with civility and love as muscular public practice. And, accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of a teaching faculty, Tippett shows us how.
