The article presents an analysis of the spiritual practices of self-knowledge, based on the method of phenomenological reduction. In the paper, the author describes the features of such practices as methods of "purification" (expansion) of consciousness, liberation from mental, speech and behavioral stereotypes. The phenomenological method, implemented in the spiritual practices of self-knowledge, is aimed at restructuring individual consciousness through the rejection of egocentrism, the elimination of subjective-evaluative activity in relation to the outside world and to oneself. Overcoming egocentrism allows going beyond social and cultural stereotypes, overcoming the disunity of consciousness and being that serves as an obstacle to the reality’s objective perception. The author notes that the phenomenological reduction practice requires constant tension of existential potential, and in the methodological plan for cognitive activity aimed at the study of consciousness, it is necessary, along with epistemological criteria, to develop a number of axiological criteria for this activity.
