Studying the five channel systems in depth gives one a more complete picture of Chinese Medicine physiology and the progression and resolution of illness.

Evan's Lecture: Herbs, Consciousness and Resonance: "Medicine/Yi is Intention/Yi."
In Chinese, the terms for "medicine/yi" and "intention/yi" are closely linked. This linguistic relationship gives us insight into a profound inner connection between healing and consciousness. Plants, like people, have levels of consciousness. Herbal medicine utilizes these various aspects of a given plant for engaging complex and lasting healing, beyond what can simply be understood through phytochemistry. Viewed in their wholeness, the capacity of plants as teachers is opened. The "faculty of intention" gives us access to understanding and utilizing plants more fully as both practitioner and patient.
