The newest kid on the SuperFeast block is the long-awaited SHEN blend. The third Essence of the Three Treasures, SHEN blend sits snugly alongside our JING and QI blends.

 

For a nice reminder on the Three Treasures, head to this article here. But in short, the Three Treasures are a beautiful Daoist concept, describing the three energies, or Essences, all things have. And here at SuperFeast, Mason (owner) has carefully crafted three blends, to help cultivate and nourish each of these energies: JING, QI and SHEN blends. (A quick reminder: we refer to our blends in capitals, SHEN, as opposed to Shen in lower case, which refers to the Essence, the Third Treasure).

 

Quick Overview: The Three Treasures

Jing: To assist us with graceful aging
 --- think your foundational, deep core energy, you are born with it. The wax of the candle

Qi: To lighten the body; accumulate flow of Qi

 --- your animation, the day to day energy that flows throughout our body. The flame of the candle

Shen: Crack the spirit through the body

 --- your virtue, wisdom and spirit. The glow of the flame of the candle

 

Essentially nourishing our Shen Essence allows us to more easily flow through life; we feel a sense of ease during the day and find it easy to sleep deeply and well at night. An overall harmony. Sounds pretty good right?!

 

 

The crew at SuperFeast have been so excited for the arrival of the SHEN blend. Whenever Mase releases a new blend, we are his guinea pigs and trial the herbal formula. We've all had a range of benefits from experimenting with taking SHEN, especially at different times during the day and night.

 

But one thing that we've all experienced is a greater sense of calm.

 

Herbs for a Happy Spirit

The loose translation of Shen, the Third Treasure, is our higher consciousness. For centuries, the herbs within the Shen blend have been used to develop wisdom, virtue and a closer connection to self. Guess which organ Shen lives in? The Heart! Our Shen needs a safe, comfortable and calm place to live and when this happens, when our Shen is present and developed, you remain steady, with a strength to stay calm with all of life's ups and downs.

We love SHEN blend for:

- Calming your mind

- Nourishing your Heart

- Softening your Heart connection

- Developing your wisdom and joy

- Allowing us to be less reactive

- Taking the edge off monkey mind

- Supporting a mature mind

- Developing our playful, joyful self

 

SHEN Loves Meditation

We LOVE pairing our SHEN with meditation, or whatever your unique personal practice is. Try taking before or during your practice and see if you notice anything different. Perhaps expansion? Warmth? A deeper-ness. A sense of ease. Or perhaps nothing at all - and that is ok too :)

 

You might remember us running you through just what a powerful ally Reishi mushroom is for your meditation practice - well hold tight as I share the amazing Shen herbs in this blend --> one of the heroes is Reishi mushroom.

Meet the SHEN Blend herbs

In a Western sense, Shen herbs can have positive effects on our nervous system, immunity and endocrine systems. Traditionally speaking however, Shen herbs directly nourish our compassion, loving nature, generosity and acceptance. These herbs have been very carefully and lovingly picked to create a well balanced and thoughtful blend:
  • Reishi mushroom
  • Asparagus root
  • Albizzia
  • Spirit poria
  • Pearl
  • Polygala
  • Rehmannia
  • Longan
  • Aged citrus
What a line up.
 

I mean, who doesn't want a more joyful, compassionate spirit?! Check out SHEN blend here. And remember, cultivating your Shen is a life-long practice, this does not come quickly. So go gently and slowly, remain curious and see where it all takes you.

 

If you want a super deep dive into just how amazing this gorgeous blend is, check out SHEN blend, the amazing benefits, here.

 

As always, please feel free to reach out to us at team@superfeast.com.au with any queries, we love supporting you on your tonic herb journey.
