"Second Wind"
Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper, and More Connected Life by Dr. Bill Thomas.

How do you know that you are outgrowing adulthood?

When you begin to feel that the life you have been living is out of balance; when the need to perform, to hurry and to acquire is no longer compelling. It¹s like the moment when your favorite tennis shoes start to give you blisters. The way you¹ve been living your adult life doesn¹t  fulfill you anymore.

Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the most innovative thinkers in medicine, explains that a new life phase is beginning to emerge within our society. When the Baby Boom Generation came of age in the 1960s and 1970s, they jump-started a cultural revolution that shaped today¹s society. Now, many feel they are living a  life of frenzied disharmony.
