Perhaps you have heard the term "sober curious". This is for people that are thinking about getting sober, but not quite sure they want to go "there".
The same concept applies to being mortal curious. One may not be sure they want to go "there"....but are curious enough to keep reading or to actually reach out.
I have found that once people begin talking, in a safe environment, about death, dying, and grief, they begin to really wanting to share their experiences, as they have not had a place to do so.
Being mortal curious means being open to alternatives, not letting society expectations put you in a box (no pun intended) and to be unapologetic for wanting to explore, empower, and enrich you and your loved ones profound life experience.
