    I wanted to see those faces. The video above is excerpted from the 1966 film, Le Message des Tibétains: Le Tantrisme (deuxième partie). For the quick skinny on the portrait sequence Ricard mentions, skip to 50:05 in the clip.

    What struck him and became the catalyst for his lifelong journey, as he told Krista in a hotel room in Vancouver, was a particular point in one of these documentaries when he saw “a series of faces, of contemplatives … in silence” — of all shapes and sizes.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    How To Make Fresh Coconut Milk & Coconut Cream, Ep86 – See more at: http://www.radiancecentral.com/2014/04/24/how-to-make-fresh-coconut-milk-and-coconut-cream-ep86/#sthash.5nVgrjMn.dpuf

    You’ll need fresh coconut meat from a mature brown coconut, click here to see the video showing how to open a coconut and get the meat!

    Fresh Coconut Milk (makes 2.5 cups / 600 mL)
    1/2 Mature Coconut (meat of)
    2 Cups / 500 mL Warm Plain Water

    1- Finely grate the coconut meat.
    2- Combine the water and grated coconut meat in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands squeezing the mixture repeatedly to break-up the coconut meat fiber and to squeeze the juices and oils out of the grated coconut. (see video for demo!).
    3- Let the mixture sit for a minimum of 10 minutes (or up to an hour).
    4- Before straining the mixture, thoroughly squeeze and mix the grated coconut meat with the liquids in the bowl again to make sure everything is mixed well and the juices and oils have been thoroughly squeezed out of the grated coconut.
    5- Strain through a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag. (The coconut pulp can be used a second time to make coconut milk but the milk will be very watery, more like a skim milk).

    Fresh Coconut Cream (makes approx. 1 cup / 250 mL)
    2.5 Cups / 600 mL Fresh Coconut Milk

    1- Place coconut milk in a bowl and let stand still at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. The coconut cream will slowly separate and rise to the surface (look at the photo above). The longer the coconut milk is left out, the thicker the coconut cream will be at the top.
    2- Once ready, scoop the coconut cream from the top of the bowl (best to use a clear bowl so you can see just how much coconut cream has formed at the top and to make sure to get it all).

    Meditation to Prevent Freaking Out


    Pose: Sit comfortably in Easy Pose with your spine straight.

    Hands: Interlace your fingers with your right thumb on top. Place your hands at the center of your diaphragm, lightly touching your body. (As seen in the picture here.)

    Eyes: Gently close your eyes.

    Breath: Concentrate on your breath, bringing awareness to the tips of your nostrils. Notice which nostril is dominant right now. It may take a few moments to clarify the dominant nostril. Once you are aware of the dominant nostril, focus your attention on switching sides. Keep your shoulders down and relaxed. You can have pressure in your hands but none in your shoulders.

    Continue changing the dominant nostril breath back and forth as long as you like.

    Use this meditation whenever you need to prevent a freak-out. It’s also a great one to teach young children. This easy practice will be a powerful tool for them to carry into their future.
