COACHING PHENOMENOLOGY AND FLOW
Megan is a future champion at pole vaulting but her further improvement is limited because her coaches cannot stand in her shoes and know what she is experiencing. They make and interpret observations through the prism of their own earlier experiences, which are irrelevant. Applying the phenomenology of philosopher Martin Heidegger, she refocusses, recording, analysing and modelling her lived experience. She self-coaches, helped with biomechanics and psychology by Chance, her physicist boyfriend who researches risk taking and flow.
Turkeys Not Bees tells their personal philosophical journeys, becoming opposed by new regulations of the athletics and Covid authorities. They are leaders in a campaign, with non-violent civil disobedience, against takeover by a Spectacle, created by media, capitalism and nanny states, of overreach in sport, health, academia and employment. This an exciting story of individual fulfilment that achieves excellence.
