“I can best describe my experience at the Medical Qigong Intensive with three words: Acceptance! Energy! Peace!”

I can best describe my experience at the Medical Qigong Intensive with three words: Acceptance! Energy! Peace! The experience created an atmosphere of full acceptance so that I, as a lay person, was accepted as a peer by the other participants who were all experienced practitioners of alternative healing therapies. Had I not seen and felt it for myself, I’m not sure I could have believed in the existence of so much energy which exists around us, between us and within us, and can be channeled for healing, daily living, and peace. I am a retired speech therapist who worked in very difficult environments in which at various times my physical being was in danger, and much toxic energy was constantly present. As a result, I have carried that energy with me into retirement. I learned many techniques to help me to begin to cleanse my body of the toxic energy and replace it with Chi. Had I had those skills at the beginning of my practice, I am sure my life would be much different now. I am beginning to feel Peace not felt previously. At the close of the session, I set a year goal which I was not convinced I could meet. With the energy I feel at this point already, I am nearly one-sixth of my way to that goal after just four sessions!

Thank you David and Tanya for allowing me to participate in the session.

“I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion and dedication to the art of Qigong. Furthermore, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others.”

In coming to this Medical Qigong Intensive, I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion and dedication to the art of Qigong.  Furthermore, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others.  It was a true pleasure to attend, meet and learn from David, a Qigong Master that embodies all the above mentioned.  Will look forward to the next Qigong learning experience! With gratitude, Jeanie

“Who would this course be good for? Everyone!”

Who would this course be good for? Everyone! As an acupuncturist, I found it ideal. That said, you do not need to have ANY concept of Qi to take this course; if you simply believe your body has power, and your body has the capability to heal itself, then you’re ready to start. For beginners, this course will start you on the path of mastering your bodily functions by introducing you to Qi and providing you the daily tools and practices necessary to develop this ability. From there, it's up to you. For the seasoned one, there is still great knowledge to glean from this course. David's discussions on the endocrine system and glands, their importance and relation to the chakras, the kundalini, the overall tie to the Caduceus symbol - I could go on, but he probably wouldn't appreciate me divulging the entire course. Let's put it this way: If I equate this course to the trunk of a tree, now that the course is completed, I have at least 5 different branches or pathways to explore further that I did not have before. I greatly appreciate the tidbits of information David left along the way which opened this door. My cup is full and I will spend the next several weeks, months, years, and decades digesting its contents.

David is genuine and authentic, skilled and compassionate. It is a privilege to study with him.

I have been in practice in the alternative health field as a Doctor of Chiropractic focusing on Applied Kinesiology, Acupuncture and NET for 34 years and a Qi Gong student for 8 years. I highly recommend David Coon's workshops for anyone who is looking to deepen their understanding of Qi Gong, further their own personal inward journey and provide benefit to others through the techniques that he teaches so masterfully. David is genuine and authentic, skilled and compassionate. It is a privilege to study with him.

“Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.”

Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.  It gave me Medical Qi Gong knowledge that I was able to use confidently right away for myself and for my patients.  The workshop also confirmed some of the practices I was already doing which only strengthens my confidence.  I loved learning all of the Qi Gong movements and exercises because running a busy practice can easily deplete me of Qi!  Doing these exercises grounds me and gives me the boost I need very quickly, and I love teaching them to my patients.  Thank you David for a great workshop that was all in all so revitalizing!  I know my Kidney and Wei Qi were very happy too!

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been to.”

This was the best workshop I’ve ever been too.  I am so glad I was there, I learned so much.  It was so enjoyable and transformative really.  The manuals are such high quality, better than anything I’ve gotten at other things. Qigong is new to me but I plan to make it part of my life.  Thank you for everything.

Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.

I have been training with David for almost a year now. When David moved to Wilmington, I had been practicing Qigong sporadically for a month or so with an instructor who was in David’s certification program. Qigong seemed cool, but I had not had any previous experience with energy work and was, admittedly, skeptical. However, I had had breast cancer 3 times and was fed up with the options that Western medicine offered. I was overwhelmed with side effects and took a handful of pills a couple of times a day. When the cancer returned the third time, I was medical retired from the Army and my physical condition has deteriorated from being very physically fit to barely being able to walk a mile.

In the past year, I have trained with David in Qigong classes, Intensives, and private sessions, as well as participating in his healing clinics. Since beginning training, I have been able to stop taking 7 different prescription medications, lost 20 lbs., can run 5 miles, and am a certified Level 1 Qigong Instructor. The difference in my physical, emotional, and spiritual well being has been phenomenal. David is an amazing healer, instructor, and coach. My story for the past 8 years has been a story of cancer. Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.

“David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students… I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine.”

Being in David Coon's Medical Qigong class was an enlivening and fortifying experience. for me.  The practices taught were simple yet powerful. I returned to my life to find my way to the inner energy core of the exercises he shared with us. I particularly loved the integrity with which David teaches. He physically manifests a high mastery of Martial Arts and Qi Gong. He did not try to make us learn what he did but encouraged us to find our own way to our own practice.

David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students to encounter and channel their own power.  I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine. I renewed a connection in my own mind to practice regularly.  Before I practiced but sporadically. David's passion made it clear to me that practice every day is as important as brushing my teeth or eating every day.  A veil lifted and a strong sense of commitment rooted. It started with experiencing the power of standing posture. I understood power is revealed as you practice every day.

David guided me in his explanation to allow the inner transformation of energy to release tensions and allow heightened energy to move through my body from the earth through my brain. I am inspired by his commitment to his practice and I am running with that transmission. I am grateful and will return to study with him again. It was a joy to receive my 15 CEU's. I learned things that could assist my patients to heal and help me grow into a clearer human being.

“I cannot say enough about this class- TAKE IT!!!”

The Golden Dragon Medical Qi Gong Intensive was a transformative experience- both during the class and in the months since. The qi gong practices that David teaches have been profoundly healing for myself and helpful for my acupuncture practice. I have seen a huge difference in my ability to calm and center myself since using the Medical Qigong Techniques. The class setting was healing and safe, which allowed for some incredible healing to take place amongst the participants, and David guided us the whole way.

I cannot say enough about this class- TAKE IT!!!

“The weekend intensive workshop that I attended in Raleigh provided me with the basics and enough real-time review to start my own Medical Qigong practice.”

Approximately 25% of my practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist is comprised of Military Vets who are faced with multiple physical, mental and emotional challenges. One of my goals for 2015 was to begin learning Medical Qigong to enhance my own practice, my focus, and energetic strength and to give my most challenging patients – VA Vets – another holistic, non-pharmaceutical tool to manage their physical, mental and emotional stress. The weekend intensive workshop that I attended in Raleigh provided me with the basics and enough real-time review to start my own Medical Qigong practice.  I am looking forward to continuing my studies with David Coon.
