Yang Sheng: The East Asian Medicine Approach to Cultivating Health and Longevity

In Asian philosophy, a person’s life is sustained by three “treasures":   jing   (“essence”),   qi   (“vital breath”), and   shen (“spirit”). Every person is born with  jing and qi, both of which disperse with age when not cared for. The shen, unlike  jing  and qi, is not allotted at birth, but should be cultivated throughout life in order to balance the other two treasures. This talk will present an introductory explanation of the ways that self-care, influenced by Asian philosophy, helps to balance the three treasures that maintain life's health, healing, and vitality.
