This week we're joined by Casey Acacia - co-founder of Circus Dynamics, founder of Providence Play Therapy, member of the Boston Circus Guild, social worker, circus arts performer and living statue - for a conversation about the therapeutic nature of play, balancing two life passions, and how to clown around with a purpose.

Topics include play as a universal language, the meditation of movement and flow, living two passions by interweaving them together, life changing moments as a living statue, the importance of therapy, and the circus arts.
