Theresa commented on Pre-death experience and learning to live life

Hi Yue, thanks for your suggestion! Yes, a ceremony would be better, which can have a full feeling. But the cost to hold a complete funeral ceremony is a bit high i think, so if there are so many people interested in this, maybe we can try to make a ceremony.

Theresa commented on Pre-death experience and learning to live life

Hi James, the idea of this theme is come from some students from Hong Kong. They have create some different type of coffins to let people pre-experience the death. The idea of this theme is not shocking people into an awareness of mortality. Actually, this activity is wish people thinking about the meaning of death through the pre experience of death. Many people may not think about death, because they think it is a very far away thing, but in fact, death sometimes happen in a moment. Some people may suddenly feel that they have a lot of things haven't done before they die, or they haven't say thing to their loved one. So I think this activity is very good to encourage people to do what they want to do in time, or more cherish every day of life.
