In keeping with The Quality of Effort’s focus on sport as one among many healthy vehicles for ongoing human development and transformation (which Ryan Leech and I explored in our interview–see post below), in this show, which aired in June on CTV-21 in Connecticut, Lindsay Kelkres and I explore the transformative potentials of poetry, art in general, and Integral Coaching®.
I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Ryan Leech as part of his ProVisions interview series. Ryan is a fellow Integral Master Coach™, gifted yoga instructor, Professional Mountain Biker and good friend. His stewardship during the interview allowed us to move into some surprising, and I think essential, territory.
Our conversation began with The Quality of Effort and our respective experiences with sport, and evolved into a wonderful exploration of sport as metaphor for life: success, loss, culture, development, practice, intention, authenticity, resistance, self-doubt, compassion, fear, the illusion of control, presence, embodiment, death and love. Even poetry showed up toward the end.
