This is a creative, entry-level book on Chinese medicine theory, philosophy, and concepts told in an accessible, story-telling format in the context of a child visiting their grandparents over the summer and having lessons over afternoon tea. It presents the theory of Yin/Yang, the five elements, the Chinese Biorhythm Clock and the placement of the channels with a logical explanation in a narrative style. With a dialectic approach, it not only aids Chinese medicine students in understanding the Classical texts, but also nudges students away from memorising information and towards a deeper understanding of the channels and relevant theories.

Reviews

Jonathan Shubs's book is brilliant in how he distils down the channel systems and Chinese medical philosophy in a way that makes it accessible and fun to learn and also easy to retain this large amount of important information. I highly recommend Shubs' text, Sun's Season of Channels, to anyone interested in Chinese medicine or any student of a healing modality with an interest in Chinese Medical Theory.

Jonathan Shubs has done an incredible job. He has created a book which teaches some difficult aspects of Chinese Medicine in a way that not only makes these topics interesting, but one that draws the reader in, with an emotional connection that allows the details of the subject to become an adventure in learning. This book is a real page turner.

Jonathan has managed to bridge the gap between the wisdom of knowing, and the curiosity of learning. This book is a must for both graduates and undergraduates. For students of channel theory, this delightful story is woven to remind us of the current revolution in meridian knowledge, whilst honoring the ancient concepts.
