Live each day like it’s your first: with Alua Arthur

July 17, 2024
Its O Kpod S3 Ep 5 Alua Arthur

What would a meaningful life look like for you? 

According to Death Doula Alua Arthur, conversations about death can be the most enriching conversations we have. It’s not about accepting death, or avoiding grief – it’s about building a relationship with yourself and others that doesn’t hold anything back.

Why should you listen? Yeah, because you’re mortal and one day you’ll die, but more importantly: because one day, hopefully in the far off future, you’ll look back at this life you’ve lived. Conversations about death can make that life so much better.
