What if facing mortality could unlock the secret to living fully? My guest Alua Arthur, a death doula and author of Briefly Perfectly Human: Making an Authentic Life by Getting Real About the End, knows firsthand how confronting death can transform how we live. In this thought-provoking episode, we dive into taboo topics like grief, loss, and our cultural avoidance of mortality.


Alua shares insights from her deeply personal journey of embracing end-of-life experiences, leading to more meaning, authenticity, and connection. Learn tangible practices to live more present and purpose-driven lives, reflect on death consciously, craft your own ideal experience, and discuss difficult topics with loved ones. This conversation may shift your entire outlook on how to live well by leaning into our universally shared mortality.
