“Empathy causes you to sit and listen to people — to help, and honor them. That’s what we want.” ~ Valoria Walker
Some time ago I was at a STEM event for middle schoolers, talking about curiosity — in particular, their curiosity about death. That got me thinking: how does curiosity show up around death? Doula by Destiny founder Valoria Walker joins me to explore how choosing to be curious about death might help us acclimate to the inevitable — and how compassionate curiosity helps her in her work.
