The Death Experience Room: To Be Reborn, First You Have to Die

methods of treatment involve being "reborn," but don’t you have
to die first to be born again? Perhaps this will help: a psychotherapy in
Shenyang, China, simulates death for patients by putting them in a coffin
inside a "death experience room":

People who suffer from psychological problems or heavy pressure can
be "reborn" by simulating death with the help of psychologists,
according to Tang Yulong, a consultant of a psychological counseling

There is a coffin in a 5-square-meter "death experience room"
at the center.

According to Tang, someone using the therapy should write down his
or her last words before lying in a coffin covered by a white cloth,
and "the deceased" can hear the dirge. Five minutes later,
a sound of a baby crying will break the "serene time", and
the consultant will open the coffin with a festive song.
