“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.

“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!

…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.

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.

“David Coon is a true teacher.”

David Coon is a true teacher. His thorough discussions were filled with valuable information. His explanations throughout the class were both relatable and one step ahead of any question that may have arisen as he was teaching. I have since started my own qi gong practice, and have implemented Medical Qigong into my Acupuncture Practice.

“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!!!

You will learn at a deeper level than you thought possible.

David is tremendously talented and is a true master of himself and healing.  He is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and that shines through in his teachings.  I recently attended one of his live workshops that was "intense" in every way, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  I highly recommend that you connect with David to experience his essence and presence.  You will learn at a deeper level than you thought possible.

“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.

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.

“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.
