Second Wind Tour Comes to Portsmouth

Second Wind Tour #1

Please join us for an exciting event that highlights a radical approach to growth and aging.   Tickets are free but registration is required.    

Dr. Bill Thomas’ Second Wind Tour will be in Portsmouth on June 3.  This theatrical performance – at the Music Hall – is traveling the country, offering audiences the opportunity to explore what it means to catch a “second wind” in one’s life and work.  The 25-city tour is inspired by Dr. Bill Thomas’ new book – Second Wind:  Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper and More Connected Life (named by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the Top 10 Social Science books of 2014.)  

Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the most innovative and creative thinkers working in medicine today, is bringing a radical new approach to growth and aging through this national non-fiction theatrical tour produced in partnership with AARP’s Life Reimagined

Well known as an inspirational writer, speaker and performer, Dr. Thomas combines his efforts to promote change in medicine and society with elements of artistic expression.  The half-day performance – 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm – consists of two acts. 

Act one is a series of theatrical monologues featuring a cast of speakers including Dr. Thomas and renowned consumer health expert and TV personality, Dr. Janet Taylor.  The second act blends the illumination of the deep connections between music, identity and memory in the form of a “marvelous surprise” documentary film preview by director Michael Rossato-Bennett, followed by a live musical performance by Musicians for World Harmony founder Samite Mulondo.  

The Tour helps challenge the conventional narrative of decline as we age ….. and helps people to see, hear, feel and connect to the power that arises from finding a “second wind” in life. 

Please save June 3 and plan to attend this phenomenal afternoon of big ideas, art, music and culture.  Be part of a new conversation that reframes “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development.  And empower yourself and others to navigate this new life phase, explore opportunities, and live the best life.
