⁣⁣More than 25,000 people have participated in mass “living funeral” services at Hyowon Healing Center since it opened in 2012, hoping to improve their lives by simulating their deaths.⁣⁣⁣⁣Dozens took part in the event, from teenagers to retirees, donning shrouds, taking funeral portraits, penning their last testaments, and lying in a closed coffin for around 10 minutes.⁣⁣⁣⁣Funeral company Hyowon began offering the living funerals to help people appreciate their lives, and seek forgiveness and reconciliation with family and friends, said Jeong Yong-mun, who heads the healing center.⁣⁣⁣⁣Jeong said he is heartened when people reconcile at a relative’s funeral, but is saddened they wait that long. “We don’t have forever,” he said. “That’s why I think this experience is so important – we can apologize and reconcile sooner and live the rest of our lives happily.”⁣⁣⁣⁣Photo credit: REUTERS/Heo Ran⁣⁣⁣⁣#DyingWell #SouthKorea #LivingFuneral #DyingWellAct #Funeral #HyowonHealingCentre #Reconciliation #TheGuardianNg ⁣
