This combination of herbs allows for the ultimate exploration of tonic herbal practice. Work with all three at once or slowly progress between JING, QI and SHEN to expand your body/mind and your spiritual awareness. JING restores your battery pack, like a recharge for your Kidneys, QI helps you cultivate and create more circulating energy and assists digestion and respiration and SHEN allows for your fullest expression to shine through - the alignment of these Three Treasures is the ultimate culmination of tonic herbal practice.
The Three Treasures is an ancient Taoist esoteric concept at the core of tonic herbalism. Diving into this beautiful philosophy helps us to understand tonic herbs on a deeper level, to understand our bodies, and how we can build substantial longevity. From The Three Treasures, we derive our intentions and purposefulness for our herbal practice.
All energy is created through the interaction of Yin and Yang, from the brightest star to the smallest particle. The entire universe is composed of, at its foundational level, energy (Qi), including the human body.
The Three Treasures make up the constitution of our body and who we are as living beings in Body, Energy, and Spirit (Heart-Mind). The Three Treasures are known as Jing, Qi, and Shen (Essence, Vitality, and Spirit).
The ultimate goal of the Daoist practices, from Qigong and yoga, to herbalism and meditation, is to harmonise, cultivate and expand these three energies.
