This blog is a place for us to challenge – first ourselves, then others – to live more fully, more daringly, more adventurous. We want to experiment daily – try new things, revisit old things, think about weird things and hopefully inspire some people to do the same.
Kerry and I will post little experiments every couple of days, that we are trying out, or that someone has inspired us to write about. Then, as a community we can maneuver through them and see what happens. We hope we can transform mundane ordinary existence into something more mindful and well…experimental. We hope you’ll join us, experiment with us and, most importantly, share with us.
Who is Kerry?
Kerry is a lawyer by day who seeks to find meaning in the most subtle and mundane moments. A self-defined seeker, she firmly believes that what you see is not necessarily what you get. Kerry felt inclined to try Everyday Experiments because she often feels confined within her own self. Though she knows that she has the freedom, at any moment, to act outside of her normal behavior, she often forgets this and instead acts as within her normal, predictable, patterns of behavior. She wants to challenge herself, but often can’t think of how she should do so. She hopes that these daily challenges will encourage her to make small shifts in her every-day perceptions. And even if she doesn’t like some of the experiments or can’t do one for the whole entire day, perhaps the experiment itself will shed light on something deeper within.
Who is Ilea?
Ilea is the Director of Artisan Operations for KEZA, VP of Angaza and owner of Tuli Body. Her life mission is to help people discover the potential that lies within them for healing, growth and transformation. She believes in meeting people where they are and learning from them and their life experiences. For Ilea this blog is about discovery. Discovery of herself. Discovery of potential – both within her and within humanity. Discovery of community. Discovery of deeper purpose. Ilea too often feels limited only by the parameters she puts around her. She knows she is free to choose otherwise, yet still she holds back. She hopes that not only these daily challenges, but also the community formed by sharing them will help her make small shifts towards living a more daring and full life.
