REST IN PEACE: BACK TO THE WOMB EXPERIENCE
To bring calm and peace to the dying person by meditating and connecting to nature and universe, simulating a "back to the womb" trip
Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine the end-of-life experience?
As a therapy service to prepare people for the moment they die. Meditation, gratitude and love...forgiving, letting go and connecting to nature visualizing this through meditation, light, images and music...and feeling that death is natural, is part of life and erase all the suffering that the physical body is meaning at that time. Leaving this world with peace and positivism, giving peace to family and all the loved ones. Inspired by the ending experience of "the shrouded woman" (M Luisa Bombal
What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?
An initial brainstorm about what connections and emotions would people want to feel at that moment, and then finding the elements that the associate (in a sensorial way) to this feelings. After this, we could create a "back to the womb" soundtrack, a set of images or colours that being perceived make people feel positive and calmed. This could be tested several times before testing it on real terminal patients.
