Scott spends an hour with John Welshons. JOHN E. WELSHONS, M.A. is the founder and president of Open Heart Seminars, an organization born in 1981 dedicated to enhancing spiritual education and awareness in our society. Since the early 1970's, John has spent much time working with such notable spiritual educators as Ram Dass, Stephen Levine, Pat Rodegast, Judith Stanton, Dale Borglum, and others setting up meaningful lectures, workshops and retreats, many of which have been focused on people who were terminally ill as well as those in grief. He says his life was "dramatically changed" by his first meeting with Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross in 1976. Over the years, one of the main areas of investigation for John has been the grieving process. Through his workshops and one-on-one counseling, he has helped many people who are working with a terminal illness as well as the loved ones who are suffering about a death that has happened, or is imminent. He is a frequent lecturer to businesses, churches, hospitals, hospices, synagogues, colleges, and universities throughout the United States. He is the author of the new book, Awakening from Grief. An abridged version of one of his stories from the book is featured in A 6th Bowl of Chicken Soup for the Soul. He is also the co-author of Healing the Grief (...of the Loss of a Loved One)-- an audio tape about grief, loss, and healing-- developed in conjunction with his good friend, Mark Victor Hansen, the co-author of the phenomenally successful Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books. In addition, John's life experience includes a B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of South Florida, and an M.A. in History of Religions from Florida State University, where he taught courses that included "Death and Dying" and "Religion in America."
