Standing on the shoulders of giants
My Deepest Gratitude to My Teachers and to those from whom we continue to learn.
Richard Dick McHugh
A Jesuit and Ph.D holder in psychology was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He was ordained to the priesthood in Jamshedpur, India in 1960; and this was the beginning of his journey in India.
He served as Vicar and later as pastor at St. Xavier's Church in Chaibasa, a town in Jharkhand. Dick’s command over Hindi (Language Native to India) was impeccable.
Dick was fond of children and while at St. Xavier's, Chaibasa he mingled and taught children Math, English and Basketball. He firmly believed that knowledge should be accompanied by experience and this is what he instilled in the children.
After the death of Fr. Anthony, Dick returned to the USA where he studied and worked hard to get his PhD in Clinical Psychology. NLP became his mission and he gave seminars and taught all around the United States, Ireland and kept coming to India to conduct programs in NLP.
Dick never limited himself by the roles of being a therapist, trainer, physician, charismatic person, lover, a player, a bold man, artist or writer. He did not age as we usually think; instead age brought in him and increased ability to live in the present.
