Join Us Live! Experience The Magic of Qigong!

What to expect from a workshop?

These Live Intensives in Medical Qigong will be taught by Medical Qigong Master David J. Coon, the author of Qigong for Beginners: Your Path to Greater Health and Vitality. These workshops will be hands-on and experiential teaching the ancient practices of Qigong as well as ancient forms of meditation and practices of Medical Qigong.

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 Qigong exercises, Medical Qigong Treatment Techniques, and potent meditations for healing the mind and body.

These workshops are designed for laypeople as well as health care professionals. Most Acupuncturists will find these intensives 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 or 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.

  • Learn Qigong Exercises
  • Learn To Teach Qigong Exercises

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.

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.

Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been to.”

This was the best workshop I’ve ever been too.  I am so glad I was there, I learned so much.  It was so enjoyable and transformative really.  The manuals are such high quality, better than anything I’ve gotten at other things. Qigong is new to me but I plan to make it part of my life.  Thank you for everything.

Kathy Wallace, Musician Black Mountain, NC October 11, 2016

“David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students.

Being in David Coon's Medical Qigong class was an enlivening and fortifying experience. for me.  The practices taught were simple yet powerful. I returned to my life to find my way to the inner energy core of the exercises he shared with us. I particularly loved the integrity with which David teaches. He physically manifests a high mastery of Martial Arts and Qi Gong. He did not try to make us learn what he did but encouraged us to find our own way to our own practice.

David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students to encounter and channel their own power.  I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine. I renewed a connection in my own mind to practice regularly.  Before I practiced but sporadically. David's passion made it clear to me that practice every day is as important as brushing my teeth or eating every day.  A veil lifted and a strong sense of commitment rooted. It started with experiencing the power of standing posture. I understood power is revealed as you practice every day.

David guided me in his explanation to allow the inner transformation of energy to release tensions and allow heightened energy to move through my body from the earth through my brain. I am inspired by his commitment to his practice and I am running with that transmission. I am grateful and will return to study with him again. It was a joy to receive my 15 CEU's. I learned things that could assist my patients to heal and help me grow into a clearer human being.

“This was one of my favorite CEU Workshops so far!”

This was one of my favorite CEU Workshops so far! Thank you.

Austin Dixon, Diplomate in Acupuncture, Licensed Acupuncturist Durham, North Carolina October 11, 2016

“Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.”

Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.  It gave me Medical Qi Gong knowledge that I was able to use confidently right away for myself and for my patients.  The workshop also confirmed some of the practices I was already doing which only strengthens my confidence.  I loved learning all of the Qi Gong movements and exercises because running a busy practice can easily deplete me of Qi!  Doing these exercises grounds me and gives me the boost I need very quickly, and I love teaching them to my patients.  Thank you David for a great workshop that was all in all so revitalizing!  I know my Kidney and Wei Qi were very happy too!

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.

Linda O'Connell, AP, DOM, LMHC, LMT Tampa, FL November 6, 2016

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.

David is genuine and authentic, skilled and compassionate. It is a privilege to study with him.

I have been in practice in the alternative health field as a Doctor of Chiropractic focusing on Applied Kinesiology, Acupuncture and NET for 34 years and a Qi Gong student for 8 years. 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.
