The workshop will present methods of self-cultivation based on the methods of philosophical practice, combining the rational efforts of working on oneself with meditative methods of concentration and relaxation. The specificity of the method of philosophical practice proposed at the workshop - philosophical meditation - lies in the necessary appeal to the inner world, combining rational philosophical methods (understanding, analysis, interpretation of a philosophical text) with the methods of traditional meditative practices based on concentration of consciousness.
