About Society for Life and Death Education
The Society for Life and Death Education is a charitable and non-profit organization, founded by healthcare professionals, lecturers, social workers and religious figures in 2006.
“Help break through the taboo on discussing death, affirm life's values, accept the inevitable truth of death, embrace our mortality, and live out life's meaning;”
“Promote life and death education to society by way of extension courses, curriculum, symposiums and workshops. The knowledge can heighten public awareness of the subject of living and dying;”
“Enhance academic research on life and death, cooperate with affiliated service institutions, conduct related education activities and exchange information;”
“Organize qualified and continuing professional training catering to nursing school students and hospital authority staff members ”
“Promote life and death education in tertiary education institutes, for example, integrate life and death education into liberal studies and introduce thanatology as a core course in the school of medicine.”
All things follow a sequence, Four seasons have a pattern; Ocean tides rise and fall, Nature withers and burgeons. Amid ceaseless circulation, Change unfolds a frequent motion, Growth persists in the universe, Blossom adheres to creation.
Humans are part of nature, hence conforming to the inevitable order of living and dying. Death is a journey’s end as well as a beginning; explore death for the sake of living out the meaning of life.When death mirrors the spirit of life, and when life refers to death, human living becomes complete.
The setting of the sun bears no implication of an end; essentially, it proclaims a process of profound care.We no longer fear death when we realize dying is part of living, when we live out life’s meaning and when we embrace an abundant life.
