Into the Unknown
A Paramedics' Journey
In the Spring of 2022 the documentary crew of Into the Unknown: The Paramedics’ Journey spent 4 days filming Chiron-facilitated programs at the Ranch as well as at a local fire station highlighting somatic-based trauma mental health support for our community paramedics and their loved ones. Medford and Ashland Fire Department medics and their spouses participated in psychoeducational workshops that included art, aroma, and equine-assisted therapy. This unscripted documentary is scheduled to be released in Spring 2023, and we have to wait until then to see if we actually made the cut. Regardless, it was an amazing experience, and we are extremely grateful to have been asked to participate by the dedicated documentary group; for the agencies and their enthusiastic personnel and loved ones who so openly and honestly shared on camera; Lynn Thomas from Arenas for Change (ARCH) who helped facilitate our equine programs; and the wonderful Chiron Team that worked tirelessly to get everything ready at the Ranch, making sure everyone was safe, healthy, and fed (human and animal alike) throughout the extraordinary visit.
