University offers students ‘purification grave’
Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, offers a novel solution for those struggling from everyday challenges of student life and uncertainty about the future – a “purification grave”. Equipped with a yoga mat and a pillow, it is an open hole in the ground in a garden behind the student church. The grave experience can be booked for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to three hours. Telephones and books are prohibited during the session. The author of the idea John Hacking, who works at the student chapel, thinks that the grave will help youth appreciate the beauty of life and realize its transience.
