“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.

I am amazed at how much I was able to take from this course- and for me, it was life- changing.


I initially signed up for this course as an avenue to help some of my patients who are stuck in a cycle of chronic pain. While I learned some valuable skills to help these patients, I think the course was really for me. My understanding of energy fields is so much broader- and the experience I gained from an intensive weekend in Tampa is already helping me build my energy (jing) and influence my patients'; energetic fields. I am amazed at how much I was able to take from this course- and for me, it was life-changing. By the way, I don't say those words lightly! Thank you David.

“As an acupuncturist, keeping up with CEU requirements is sometimes a chore… Not so with David’s Qigong workshop! From the first moment to the last I was engaged and fascinated.”

As an acupuncturist, keeping up with CEU requirements is sometimes a chore. On more than one occasion I’ve sat through droning presentations of rehashed information, just hoping for something useful, and watching the clock. Not so with David’s Qigong workshop! From the first moment to the last I was engaged and fascinated – with a hundred ideas running through my head of how to better help my patients. I know I have to cultivate my own practice first, but I’ve known that for a long time. After this seminar I finally feel like I have a starting place and a foundation that will help me prioritize my own practice and slowly evolve into a better practitioner for my patients. Thanks David!

For me, this ‘Father of Acupuncture’ has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing.

For any Therapist or Practitioner feeling stuck or unsure about which direction that they want their practice headed, this (Medical Qi Gong) may be the perfect solution. For me, this 'Father of Acupuncture' has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing. I highly recommend David's teaching style and this Energy infused ancient art of cultivating Chi and using it for yourself and others.

My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally. 

"My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally.


Personally, I was able to work through a block that had me bound for decades.  It was during one of the Qigong exercises that this issue began to unravel for me.  I found myself totally present to my pain and felt a safe sacred space to let it come up and out.  When the physical exercise was over, I was supported to process this in a very masterful way.  I discovered that I was in my own jail and that I also held the key. Thank you David for helping me to heal this long-standing issue.  This healing experience was a surprise and a blessing.


Professionally, I received the confidence to practice the practice of Medical Qigong in groups with my patients and with the public starting right away.  David is generous with his knowledge. I appreciate his strength, his wit, his focus, his practical way of bringing his mastery out and his passion to help humanity."

David’s class brought me to a new level… that I have the power to transform myself and become a healing channel through this practice.

I participated in the “The Golden Dragon Medical Qi Gong Intensive with David this last weekend in Clearwater/St. Pete. It was a very transformative experience for me. David is a “True Master of Qigong” that has the desire to fully engage his students, taking a very personal interest in the development of each and every one. He is a gifted instructor with a thorough understanding of Qigong and the Martial Arts from many paths.

This weekend was very different; I have attended other Qigong seminars in the past. They left me disenchanted, overwhelmed and totally frustrated. I left these weekends without retaining anything from the class except a paper certificate stating that I had fulfilled my CEU requirements for yet another year.

David’s class brought me to a new level; “that I have the power to transform myself and become a healing channel through this practice.

I realize; to appreciate the power of Qigong; it is an art that must be practiced daily to fully achieve success. David communicated the Qigong exercises and concepts in a way that I could understand and integrate the practice into my life and work. The way he led the class through the various exercises were clear and concise. The sessions were timed, organized and well balanced between informative experiential lectures and “hands-on” practical experience, reminding me that true Qigong is more than a technique or modality, it is a gift!  David repeatedly expressed to “feel” the Qi; not just apply yet “another technique”. Techniques while very important; “without feeling the Qi you were an empty vessel; holding a needle.

He truly left me inspired, with a desire to pursue a Qigong path. This has been one of the best programs I have attended as a continuing education seminar. The class should be mandatory for every student of acupuncture and life. It is a fulfilling experience; I honestly recommend his medical intensive for everyone to attend.  I look forward to future workshops and continued practice.

“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.
