Welcome, SoulPancake Friends!
Reimagine is a nonprofit that helps people face death and embrace life. We create community-driven festivals called "Reimagine End of Life" that bring whole cities together. We also provide helpful resources for you to explore dying, death, grieving...and living.
What do you want at the end of your life?
How can you remember the people you love?
How do entire cities talk about death?
Reimagine hosts citywide festivals exploring life and death which feature the participants of the SoulPancake + Reimagine videos. Join them at Reimagine NYC festival, June 4-14, 2020.
It starts with a conversation...
We are excited to share our Reimagine End of Life Conversation Guide to support you in talking about life and death with friends, family, and even strangers. You'll even find it helpful for your own self reflection. It's available below for free download!
