This is also a 8-day residential workshop, but after PSL1 and an intensive learning experience that seeks to bring one's attention towards the most important 'self' by Understand the Human Being comprehensively. It is a process of guided introspection, of 'doing philosophy' rather than studying it. There is no sermonizing; the facilitator presents sets of proposals, and helps participants bring their attention to the activities and potentialities of the self; what causes harmony/disharmony in the self leading to harmony at all levels from self to Nature and entire Existence.
Content of the PSL2 Workshop
Understanding the Human Being Comprehensively
- Recapitulating - the basic human aspirations and their fulfillment through Right understanding and Resolution. All-encompassing Resolution for a Human Being, its details and solution of problems in the light of Resolution.

- Understanding the human being comprehensively is the first step and the core theme of this course; human being as co-existence of the self and the body; the activities and potentialities of the self; what causes harmony/disharmony in the self.
- The need and the process of inner evolution (through self-exploration, self-awareness and self-evaluation)- particularly awakening to activities of the Self: Realization, Understanding and Contemplation in the Self (Realization of Co-Existence, Understanding of Harmony in Nature and Contemplation of Participation of Human in this harmony/ order).

Cost of the Workshop
This workshop is conducted with a feeling born out of responsibility and these workshops are offered as gifts to the society. So, there is no "fee" for the workshop. However, the cost of boarding & fooding for each participant will be borne by themselves. Nobody is ever denied participation in the workshop due to inability to make a monetary contribution and can volunteer. Typically these workshops end up self-financing as participants do contribute responsibly.
