What Am I?
Learn about different aspects of one’s being from a space of unknowing, with an open heart, and perhaps we can find something new about this thing we call I.

When one is asked the question WHO ARE YOU, one may ask oneself WHO AM I? The natural answers, such as identifying myself as Ms/Mr.__from country __, studied ___, like ___, dislike ___, work as ___ etc., flow instinctively.
Have we ever given all our attention to this question and asked what is this I? What brings this I into existence? What does it contain? What are its contours? What is the self? WHAT AM I?
In this age of Artificial Intelligence, it has become more important than ever to holistically investigate all aspects of one's being. We are overloaded with words like intelligence, love, self, presence, self-help, self-love, consciousness, etc. WHAT AM I? As a question, it could bring us a step ahead or a step closer to KNOWING OURSELF! As KNOWING THYSELF might be the beginning of something new.
In this session, we will explore the question WHAT AM I together in-depth, employing the self-inquiry method from Eastern philosophies.
Nitin Kumar is someone with a passion for understanding life. Like many others, he followed the classical education path and completed a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. Afterward, he held several careers as a business and technology consultant, start-up founder, and university teacher, all in Data and AI. During the last decade, he started meditating and learning about spirituality while struggling with physical and mental health problems.
During one of his self-inquiry sessions, one of the first questions that came to him from nowhere was WHAT AM I? With this question as a starting step, he went into what love is, what relationship is, what is fear, what is death, and what is freedom. It was as if life started unfolding with all these questions, and answers to them started revealing themselves. He would like to share these questions with others now.
