“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.

“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.

The classes that I have taken with David Coon are phenomenal!

The classes that I have taken with David Coon are phenomenal! They are easy to understand, fun and have takeaway benefits that affect my life directly and all my clients in my massage practice as well. I will continue to take his classes whenever possible. I strongly suggest taking any class with this Qigong Master!

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!

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.

“David is a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching medical Qigong may very well effect in this country a resurrection of a much neglected branch of Chinese Medicine.”

I recently participated in a weekend Medical Qigong Intensive with David Coon, and I returned to my practice full of life force and eager to assimilate my experience into my treatment approach.  The sessions were well organized and well balanced between informative and hands-on, reminding us that true Qigong is something quite beyond exercise!  I look forward to future workshops. David is a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching medical Qigong may very well effect in this country a resurrection of a much neglected branch of Chinese Medicine. We here in North Carolina are fortunate to have David and Tanya now in our area.

…truly changing the planet with this message of breathing…

Your healing seminar was like the Magical Mystery Tour of the breath and power of intent. David Coon has walked the walk and is truly changing the planet with this message of breathing and the ability to heal by QiGong techniques.

“This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening!”

Not often do I attend a seminar for CEUS where I was so extremely engaged in the work being taught. David made it easy to embrace and let go. This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening! Would highly recommend it to anyone! He is a true gift to any participant.

I highly recommend Qigong awareness to anyone of any age looking for a better quality of life.

 

I've been around energy medicine for 35 years. As a Practitioner of Chinese medicine I've had the opportunity to study with many teachers. David Coon takes the lead in having mastered Qigong practices. His mastery extends to his ability to share his techniques and practices in simple to implement and use exercises and routines. I do 5 minutes in the morning to as much as a one hour practice. Sometimes I integrate the practices into my day. The results have amazed me. My physical endurance, inner calm, clarity and intuition are optimal. I highly recommend Qigong awareness to anyone of any age looking for a better quality of life. I am grateful for the privilege of having David Coon as a teacher.
