Paul Nison is going to be giving a talk in Kansas in July. Is he worth going to see? I am seriously thinking about going to see him but have had some mixed reviews about him and am interested on peoples thoughts about him on this forum. Also, there are very few raw events in Kansas so I was/am excited about this opportunity.

I would definitely go, although he is very Christian, I love his talks, I've seen him three times now, and always am happy, besides his lectures are usually free or only about $20 or so, very reasonably priced, and he usually has food if he charges.
I enjoy his humor and talks.
hi wife is also very sweet and nice to talk to too.

Sounds like some nice ME time. Hope you go and enjoy yourself......
I saw him this Spring and was very impressed! I look forward to seeing him again.

I think I am going to that. I saw him when he was in Kansas a few mos ago. It was worth it.

After English Tracy (where are you now?) posted that Shazzie was on raw vegan radio, I listened to it and also an interview of Paul Nisan, among others. http://rawveganradio.podomatic.com/entry/2006-02-19T14_04_50-08_00
I found out that he was going to be on the west coast of FL but not on my days off or my vacation days. I had the same questions as you. Look at the link. It should give you the interview and here is the homepage: http://www.paulnison.com/

Met him and attended a class about five months ago.Nice enough guy, but couldn't relate to his current diet of only drinking salads. I think it's always valuable to consider and see who's out there teaching what. Have fun!

I saw him just last month, and he wasn't drinking salads, although he says he does do that on occasion, evidentally it is easy for him to do that while traveling.
he does suggest limiting your sweet fruit intake, but them most raw food gurus do.

I saw two of his lectures when he was in Kentucky a couple of months ago. They were completely different. One was for people who just didn't know much about raw foods and the other was for folks who were already doing it. I enjoyed both of them, he does have a good sense of humor. I took what I liked from it and incorperated that into my life. I did also get his book which really does reflect his sense of humor. Cooked food man has been KO'd. *grin*

Raw Nut - I am still here! Unfortunately my father in law passed away at the end of April so I didn't get time to visit this site very much!
I thought it was interesting that Shazzie and Karen Knowler from the Fresh Network were on Raw Vegan Radio and people like Alissa weren't, but Sweetgoddess notes in another post that Alissa has just been interviewed for it.
Can't wait to hear it.

I'm going to see Paul Nison in NJ sometime in July. Is anyone going to that? I'm excited to meet other raw people there and I think that whenever you hear anyone speak you just have to listen with an open mind and then take what you can from it. I feel that all of the raw fooders have a common thread but they also have some conflicting theories about certain foods and ways to prepare them. I guess you just have to see what works for you.

I went to one of his lectures a few months back. He's very personable, funny, nice, knowledgeable, and positive. He doesn't really let his religion get in the way of what he does and it's wonderful to meet someone who is living their dream. He had just gotten married and his cute little new wife was helping him out.
Nice guy... I'd say go.
I did purchase one of his books and really didn't care for it, but I just figured it was a donation for his costs.
