Two Great Thought Leaders.
One Great Conversation…

A public talk and conversation with
Frank Ostaseski (in person) & Dr. Bill Thomas (by Skype), two world innovators in the fields of death and aging.

Frank is an internationally respected Buddhist teacher, visionary cofounder of the Zen Hospice Project, and founder of the Metta Institute. He has lectured at Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Wisdom.2.0 and teaches at major spiritual centers around the globe. The American Association of Retired Persons has named Frank one of America’s Fifty Most Innovative People. His groundbreaking work has been featured on the Bill Moyers PBS series On Our Own Terms, highlighted on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and honored by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He is the author of “The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.”

Dr. Bill Thomas, a culture-shifting geriatrician, was named by the Wall Street Journal as one of America’s “top 10 innovators.” Best known for his health care system innovations, alternative views on the future of retirement, he is the founder of a global non-profit (The Eden Alternative) which works to improve the care provided to older people. Dr. Thomas recently starred in the Sundance award-winning documentary Alive Inside. He has been traveling the world since 2014 starring in what he calls his Age of Disruption Tour, a “nonfiction theater performance” that has played in over 80 cities. “People hear that a doctor is coming to town to talk about aging and they expect me to show up wearing a white coat with PowerPoint slides. I show up with a guitar, a bass player, a theater set, costumes, music, art, mythology, storytelling, biography, and neuroscience all mixed up. It’s kind of like a TED Talk on steroids,” says Dr. Thomas.
