As the most visible death doula working in America today, Alua Arthur is a seeker, a “recovering” attorney and the founder of Going with Grace, a death doula training and end-of-life planning organization. She has spent thousands of hours with folks as they contemplate their mortality when regrets, secret joys, hidden affairs, and dim realities are finally revealed aloud. Her TED Talk titled, “Why thinking about death helps you live a better life” went online in July 2023, and has already received 1.5 million views. 

A frequent guest on TV and radio, Alua has been featured on CBS’s The Doctors and in Disney’s “Limitless” docu-series with Chris Hemsworth, as well as in national print media outlets, such as Vogue, InStyle, the Los Angeles Times, The Cut, The New Yorker, and the New York Times. She travels the country and world as a keynote speaker, addressing audiences at conferences, end-of-life organizations, Fortune 500 companies, universities, seminaries, senior citizens’ communities, and more. 

Alua’s journey to death work started when her family fled a murderous coup d’etat in Ghana in the ‘80s – a time of chaos and fear that dramatically impacted her life and influenced her restless, peripatetic spirit. Every aspect of Alua’s fascinating life comes together in Briefly Perfectly Human: Making an Authentic Life By Getting Real About The End, her raw, no holds barred, honest, and frequently hilarious memoir poetically crafted to share her powerful message with people all around the world. Available on April 16, 2024, her story is a deeply soul-transformative story that encourages us to think about the often-taboo subject of our own mortality – and how embracing this reality can help us lead better, more fulfilling lives.
