Powder People: Could It Possibly Be Healthy to Eat Nothing But the Food-Substitute Soylent? Photo: Bobby Doherty/New York Magazine (Powder); Getty Images (Body); Photo-illustration by Darrow As a tech-obsessed child growing up in the nineties, Rob Rhinehart was always puzzled by food.

Back in the early 90’s I was tasked to work in rural Aboriginal communities in Australia helping those communities improve their infrastructure, livelihoods, and health through permaculture.

A chance encounter with Buddhism led to an about turn, and Ricard has spent the past 40+ years living in the Himalayas, studying mindfulness and happiness. In this free-wheeling discussion at TED Global in October 2014, Ricard talked with journalist and writer Pico Iyer about some of the things they’ve learned over the years, not least the importance of being conscious about mental health and how to spend time meaningfully. An edited version of the conversation, moderated by TED Radio Hour host Guy Raz, follows.
Juice Heads: How the Newest Liquid-Nutrition Cultists Are Mastering Their Intestines I’m sipping a Mean Greens juice—kale, cucumber, chard—at Irving Place’s One Lucky Duck with Allison, a 34-year-old executive for a cosmetics company. Meticulously dressed in a silk skirt and a bright-red blazer with the sleeves rolled up, Allison is on her third day of a “juice cleanse,” meaning she hasn’t consumed anything—other than, of course, juice—for almost 72 hours. She’s suffering, but also oddly buoyant. Pandora Thomas on responding to the Prison Industrial Complex with permaculture and resilience Pandora Thomas is a teacher, writer, speaker and designer.
