韩国自杀倾向新疗法 躺入木棺思考人生

A new treatment for suicidal patients in South Korea involves locking them up in wooden coffins2. The fake "death experience" apparently3 helps students appreciate life better after confronting a simulated version of their last moments.

韩国出现自杀倾向患者新疗法,躺入木棺思考人生。在直面模拟的“临终时刻”后,假死经历有助于人们更加珍惜生命。

The rate of suicide in Korea is on the rise, with about 40 people killing4 themselves every day. Experts believe that the nation's super-competitive atmosphere is responsible for so many cases of depression and suicide. And according to theSeoul Hyowon Healing Center, the solution to this crisis lies in their 'death experience' therapy.

Participants at the centre come from all walks of life, including teenagers who struggle with pressure at school, older parents experiencing isolation5, and the elderly who are afraid of becoming a financial burden on their families. They all don white robes and get into coffins arranged in rows. Beside each coffin1 is a small desk with pens and paper. Students sit inside the coffins and listen to a short talk by Jeong Yong-mun, a former funeral worker who is now the head of the healing centre. He explains to them that they should accept their problems as a part of life and try to find joy in the most difficult situations.

The students then lie down in the coffin and close their eyes to have a 'funeral portrait' taken. Afterwards, they write down their will or compose a farewell letter to their loved ones, and read their last words aloud to the group. When the 'hour of death' approaches, they are told that it is now time to 'go to the other side'. Candles are lit and the 'Korean Angel of Death' enters the room. The students lie down in their coffins once more, and the angel closes the lid on each one of them.

They are left alone in the dark for about 10 minutes, during which time they are faced with the idea of 'nothingness' in the after-life. They are encouraged to use this time to contemplate6 on life from an outsider's perspective. When they finally emerge from their coffins, they claim to feel 'refreshed' and 'liberated7'. Jeong Yong-mun enters the room once more to tell them: "You have seen what death feels like, you are alive, and you must fight!"
