If you have a history of mental health concerns or are feeling emotionally vulnerable, please consider seeking guidance from a mental health professional before participating.

Watch The Video They Saw Inside The Casket

Step #1

What you Need:

A quiet, dimly lit space
A comfortable surface to lie down on (yoga mat, blanket, bed)
Headphones
A device to watch videos (laptop, tablet, phone)
Pen and paper (or a journaling app)

Instructions:

Set the Mood: Choose a space where you won’t be disturbed. Dim or turn off the lights
Lie Down and Reflect: Lie down comfortably, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to relax your mind and body.
Watch the Video:
Focus on the message of the video and allow yourself to feel the emotions it brings up.

Important Note: This home version is a simulation. The full impact of the “Inside the Casket” experience comes from the physicality of being in an enclosed space and the guided environment of the event. However, this home version can still be a valuable tool for self-reflection and creating positive change in your life.

Step #2

After You Watch the “Inside the Casket” Video:

Reflecting on Your Legacy: The Eulogy Exercise

The casket is a powerful reminder of life’s fleeting nature. Now, take a moment to envision your own life story, the legacy you’ll leave behind. Imagine the words that will be spoken at your farewell, the impact you’ll have made on others, and the values you embodied.

Writing Prompt:

Crafting Your Eulogy: Write your own eulogy from the perspective of a loved one. In their voice, what would you want them to say about your life, your passions, your relationships, and your contributions to the world? Don’t focus on perfection; write from the heart. Allow this to be a reflection of who you are today and an inspiration for who you aspire to become.

This exercise is designed to help you crystallize your values, aspirations, and the legacy you want to leave behind. By imagining your own eulogy, you can begin to shape the narrative of your life and live each day with greater intention and purpose.

Step #3

The Casket Experience serves as a profound reminder that life is too precious to be filled with regrets and “what ifs.” As you step out of the casket, envision the life you want to live, a life where you’ve seized every opportunity, faced your fears, and embraced your passions.

Writing Prompt:

Banishing “What Ifs”: On a blank page, write down a list of the “what ifs” that haunt you. Then, for each “what if,” create an action plan – a step-by-step guide on how you can turn that “what if” into reality. Be specific and set realistic goals. How can you start living without regrets and making those “what ifs” a thing of the past?

By actively addressing your “what ifs,” you empower yourself to create a life of fulfillment, free from the burden of unrealized dreams and missed opportunities.
