Richard Branson has long been one of elephant’s dream interviews, and idols. He’s a hippie hipster outsider who’s walked into the business world, turned it upside-down, scooped up the change that fell out, and continued living a meaningful life (see videos below).

But it’s a recent silly, random stunt of him kite-surfing with a naked model on his back (the girlfriend of the photographer, as it happens) that’s brought him to the attention, once again, of our ADHD world. So we’ll happily use this inane yet lovely happenstance to present to you…The Elders! A sort of Justice League for the Mindful Life consisting of Jimmy Carter, Richard, Peter Gabriel, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu,

Videos (oh, and those photos you might be interested in, too, are at the bottom):

First, a bonus: the most inspiring young woman we know.
