The Tour

“Our culture is out of balance and there is a profound and growing need for a slower, deeper and more connected approach to our lives, our work and our communities.” -Dr. Bill Thomas

Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the most innovative and creative thinkers working in medicine today, brings a radical new approach to growth and aging through his “non-fiction” theatrical events.

His 2014 Second Wind Tour visited 25 cities nationwide in 2014 and attracted more than 8,000 participants. Inspired by Thomas’ new book examining the baby boom generation’s reluctant generational second coming of age—“Second Wind: Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper and More Connected Life” — the Second Wind Tour blended the spoken word, innovative set design, film, and music.

Audiences were taken on a holistic exploration that drew on a deep well of evidence-based approaches to growth, change, aging, health, and wellness. The goal of the tour is to start a new conversation that reframes “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development—a time for challenging received attitudes toward aging.
