Program Notes

Join Lesley as she sits down with Alaya Chadwick, M.Div., M.S.W. for a fun, informative and impactful conversation on how to fill our internal holes by remembering how to play.


Alaya walks the listener through the experiences that caused her to become intensely serious about absolutely everything at age 8, and her ultimate emergence from those self-imposed restrictions.

Having translated all she learned from her own journey into a Master Class for clinicians, the work has touched the lives of everyday people around the globe and is now finding footing in the C-Suites of Fortune 250 and 500 companies.

The core of this conversation and Alaya’s work rests in helping individuals to learn to ‘make sense to themselves’ and to do it in a way that invigorates their lives and all that they do.
