This list of questions serves as an extension to our recent Desert Dialogue column, Therapy Thoughts: Death Becomes Us All. In our discussion, I chatted with Arizona licensed therapist, M, while we uncovered some of the cultural, emotional, and societal aspects that shape our perceptions and reactions to death as a Western culture and society.

These questions are not intended to be completed all at once or even in full. Comment below, journal, use as writing or art prompts, or have a chat with your own support systems on whichever questions resonate most or trigger discomfort in you.

Whether you’re considering your own experiences or the broader cultural attitudes, this list invites you to think critically and compassionately about one of life’s most significant shared experiences.
