The Khôra


Plato proposes that the "khôra" rests between the sensible and the intelligible, through which everything passes but in which nothing remains. For podcast producers Dr. Stephanie Arel and Jessica Daugherty, The Khôra serves as a holding space, a container for encountering the emotional impact of caring and bearing witness to trauma. We aim to learn from those engaged in practices of care, and who may encounter traumatic circumstances, in order to illuminate strategies for individual growth, especially in situations where life presents stressful circumstances or when others are in need. The ultimate goal is to acknowledge the witness and to make available resources for managing stress and responding to trauma.
