2021 & 2022 LIVE CEU WORKSHOPS

Medical Qigong & The Eight Brocades For Longevity

We're Live Again! Can't Wait To See You In Person!

What is the course about?

This Live Intensive, Medical Qigong & The Eight Brocades For Longevity will be taught by Medical Qigong Master Healer David J. Coon, the author of Qigong for Beginners: Your Path to Greater Health and Vitality. This will be an intensive course using the ancient practices of the popular Qigong form called Eight Brocades, the core foundation for this workshop.

The Eight Brocades is an ancient form of Medical Qigong. According to Wikipedia: Baduanjin Qigong is one of the most common forms of Qigong used as exercise. Baduajin is primarily designated as a form of Medical Qigong, meant to improve health. It has been described as a form of exercise for General Yue Fei’s soldiers to help keep their bodies strong and well prepared for battle.

Master Coon has been practicing Qigong and Martial Arts for over thirty-five years. He holds black belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Kenpo Karate. In his teens and twenties, Master Coon used Qigong to heal his spine of a degenerative spinal disease that the doctors said would cripple him.

Master Coon is also a Medical Qigong Master and will be teaching students to use Medical Qigong – a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine to bring greater healing to their patients. You will learn eight Qigong exercises, three Medical Qigong Treatment Techniques, and one potent meditation for longevity.

This course is designed for laypeople as well as health care professionals. Most Acupuncturists will find this course very beneficial and applicable to their professional practices. Massage therapists and Yoga teachers will also benefit greatly from these practices gaining advanced knowledge regarding this form of Qigong giving them the ability to teach this set to their clients and students.

 

What will you learn?

In this intensive, you will learn both Qigong Exercises to teach your clients/students and Medical Qigong Treatment Techniques to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Our students have both healed their own conditions and exponentially increased their patients’ healing results using Qigong.

You will learn eight Qigong exercises, three Medical Qigong Treatment Techniques, and one potent meditation for longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I have already taken one 15 CEU Intensive can I still take Level I All-Inclusive?

Yes!

Please email [email protected] with the name of the previous 15 CEU intensive completed and request for a $199 discount.

You will be sent a one-time promocode for a $199 discount to purchase Level I All-Inclusive Program if you have previously taken a Qigong Awareness 15 CEU intensive.

When David was fifteen years old he was diagnosed with a severe spinal disease and told that he would be crippled by the time he was thirty years old. Unwilling to accept this fate, David began intensively studying Oriental Medicine, Medical Qigong, Martial Arts and Meditation.

David learned how to cultivate and direct the energetic life force called Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through Qigong practice, David healed his spinal disease completely!

He was drawn to teaching and sharing these healing practices and spiritual counsel with others.

He has taught and lectured around the country to both lay people and professionals about the healing power of Qigong. David’s Qigong practices are now being practiced around the world. They are simple, effective and can be practiced by anyone at any age.

Alongside of his busy traveling, writing and filming schedule David offers private Medical Qigong Healing Sessions, Medical Qigong Group Healing Clinics, Meditation and Qigong Classes in Wilmington, NC.

Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials

“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 a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching…

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.

“David’s Medical Qigong Intensive workshop was superb!”

David’s Medical Qigong Intensive workshop was superb! He was extremely skilled at being able to communicate concepts and ideas with insight and clarity. The activities he chose were very helpful and allowed each person to grow from their current place of understanding and level of skill. I personally came away from the workshop with a much greater depth of understanding that will inform my personal and professional practice. A couple of ‘nuggets’ have already resulted from applying some of his suggestions. I heartily recommend this.

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.

“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.

“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.

“David inspired me!

This Medical Qigong Intensive with David J. Coon was very informative and lots of fun! I learned so many ways to help restore my energy and well-being, as well as my patients. The instructor was very kind and willing to teach us a great amount of information in a short period of time. David inspired me! I am already adding Medical Qigong into my everyday life and 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!!!

“It was by far the most powerful and life changing course I have taken”

It was by far the most powerful and life changing course I have taken. My practice is already completely different in just the first day. And, my city must have got the memo because my clinic is 25% fuller this week than ever before. Thank you again for the service that both of you provide!

“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.
