About the Topic and Speaker:

The Nirvana Tickle is about being alive JOYFULLY and HAPPILY (piti-sukkha). The concept came about after Richard’s “last lunch” as he prepared for his Vision Quest journey May 30-June 15 2008. Qualities displayed by the 36 ½ persons in the Cast of Characters include-being in a child’s mind, rapture, epiphany, a zany zest for life, enthusiasm, a sense of humour, paradoxical quivers and being “lost” in bliss.

Having a flair for the outrageous is another characteristic. “Stupid happiness,” as defined by the Dalai Lama will be discussed.

The exotic mixture includes The Virgin (Joan of Arc), Sister Wendy Beckett (a consecrated virgin), A Professional Gambler and his autistic 6-year old son, Rumi, the Ganja Queen of Vietnam, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, HH the 14th Dalai Lama, Oprah, Victor Frankl (a Nazi death camp survivor and founder of paradoxical intention) and a former mobster-turned-monk who says Buddhism is a masterful con game. Others in the Cast are Marjoe the evangelical (this rascal proved that bad intentions can produce good results).

The ½ person will be identified. More luminaries are Dr. Alan B. Wallace (neuroscience researcher involved in the ‘biology of joy’), Mattieu Ricard (crowned the ‘happiest man on the planet’ by TIME magazine.
