Cobb began refusing food last month after being jailed on charges of terrorizing his neighbors. He told the Associated Press that he was not on a hunger strike, but was practicing a form of spiritual enlightenment called mahasmadhi with the goal of leaving his physical body behind.

Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen told the Bismarck Tribune that Cobb was eating after he returned to jail in Stanton, N.D.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Jan. 13 for Cobb and one of his followers also facing terrorizing charges, Kynan Dutton.
