The Three Treasures represent the creative and procreative polarity of Qi, the magnetism of Jing, and the spiritual container that is Shen. These 3 sacred and integral gifts form the basis for life, the promise of health, wellbeing, and endurance. Taoists believe that by using our breath, deep meditation, and disciplined exercise, we are able to support, balance, and preserve the 3 Treasures to achieve immortality. When Jing, Qi, and Shen are in harmony, we are able to live life at peak capacity with our body, mind, and spirit fully engaged. These powerful truths are represented in the Music of the Spheres, and in the words of the Chinese sage, Chuang Tzu who said, Heaven Earth and I are one and all things and I form an inseparable unity. These sacred Taoist concepts are integrated into the Acutonics® curriculum. If you would like to read more about the Acutonics® approach to working with the Three Treasures you might enjoy this article by Donna Carey, LAc and Ellen Franklin, PhD that appeared in Oriental Medicine Journal, Deepening our Connection to Nature, Earth & Self: Alleviate Stress with Acutonics® and the Three Treasures.
"Every cell in our body is a sound resonator. Every cell lives in a dynamic rhythmic pattern. Each organ has its own cycle and its own pulse. Each and every system has a cycle, rhythm, pattern, and pulse that exist in resonant harmony and sympathy to the cycles of the earth and the heavens. These body systems respond to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states of consciousness. "
