Perhaps you’ve been curious about the philosophy behind Focusing, The Philosophy of the Implicit, but never quite dipped inside.  Perhaps you’ve taken a dive into Gene’s writing, but seek greater clarity.  In celebration of the publication of Eugene Gendlin’s groundbreaking work, A Process Model, we offer a learning possibility of Gendlin’s philosophy from diverse teachers and perspectives.

Taught by seven outstanding scholars of the Implicit, this online course will be facilitated by Dan Schachter and Dana Ganihar, themselves respected teachers of Gendlin’s philosophy.  Dan and Dana will work with the group to process and to create a sense of community. They will hold the whole, supporting the group to connect the Implicit with a more personal understanding and experience.

Your Philosophy Hosts

Dan Schachter, M.A., is a Clinical Psychologist, Focusing Coordinator, and a Somatic Experiencing practitioner and supervisor. He teaches Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT) and the Philosophy of the Implicit.

Dana Ganihar, MSc.: Teaches Focusing and the Philosophy of the Implicit, Board member of The International Focusing Institute, and Adjunct Lecturer in the Faculty of Architecture at The Israeli Institute of Technology.


This course is open to all. Familiarity with Focusing is required. Familiarity with philosophy is not required.


The course will consist of 8 meetings of two hours each. Each class will consist of a combination of lecture, conversation, and Focusing.  We will meet on Zoom, an easy to use video conferencing software.

This is a course, not a series of independent classes. A commitment to attend all classes is expected.  Naturally, individuals might occasionally miss a class, but the intention is for the group to be a group.  We will meet on Zoom.  The class will not be available as a recording only.  Classes will be recorded only for review for members of the class, or so that a member who has an occasional absence can catch up.

There will be no required reading, although readings will be suggested.  The choice of what to read and whether to read will always remain with each individual participant.

The class will be taught in English. The teachers are committed to speaking slowly and checking comprehension for those for whom English is a second language.

Date and Time:

Each class will be 2 hours long. The lectures will be no more than 45 minutes and the rest will be group conversation and processing.
