Steve is joined by best-selling author John Welshons for another uplifting conversation about life, love, and the human spirit. John 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.
