“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.

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.

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.

“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.

“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 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 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.
