Experiments in Freedom was founded by Sesalli Castillo & Syon Davis in 2021.

We set out to create a human-centered business that  allows us to use our unique skills and gifts to help actualize the world that we want to bring to fruition.  

We spend most of our time strategic planning with values-aligned organizations, hosting herbalism & art workshops, faciliating staff retreats, making short films, and producing community wellness events.  You can click here to read more about our work.

Here are (a few) of the principles that guide our work:



FIND WHAT FEELS GOOD
pleasure, play, & joy are centered in our work, our experiences, & our decision making processes.

RADICAL SELF-ACCEPTANCE
be bold about your gifts & honest about your limitations. make space for others to do the same.

DECENTRALIZED COLLABORATION
collaboration & consensus are at the forefront of our decision making processes. we work to make sure that everyone affected by the decision has a say.

RECOGNIZE REALITY & IMAGINE ANYWAY
imagine expansively & stay open to what can be brought to life with the space, time, energy, & resources available.
