Acupuncturists & Massage Therapists Earn 15 CEU/PDA

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.

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! David also found that his mood, his attitude, his outlook on life, and his intuition had all increased exponentially. He was drawn to teaching and sharing these healing practices and spiritual counsel with others.

David also has a vast Martial Arts background with Black Belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Kenpo Karate. He has been an Instructor of Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts. He has also studied Japanese Ju Jitsu, Kung Fu, Small Circle Ju Jitsu, Aikido, Chen Style Tai Chi, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pen Jak Silat, Kendo and more..

David’s Qigong Practices are underpinned by his Psychology degree from the University of Connecticut and three years of experience as a Professional Counselor in Louisville,Colorado.  He also spent three years at the University of Colorado studying Molecular and Cellular Biology to better understand the inner workings of the body on a cellular and biochemical level.

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 Retreats, Webinars, and Distance Healing Program in Wilmington, NC.

Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials

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!

“I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide…

In coming to this Medical Qigong Intensive, I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion and dedication to the art of Qigong. Furthermore, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others. It was a true pleasure to attend, meet and learn from David, a Qigong Master that embodies all the above mentioned. Will look forward to the next Qigong learning experience! With gratitude, Jeanie

This is my second seminar with David, it's the world's fastest weekend I've ever spent anywhere, filled with brain busting wisdom in every sentence.

Please keep coming back to Colorado! Thank You So Much!

I had so many aha moments to change my life.

What an amazing weekend filled with healing on many levels.  David's knowledge and enthusiasm brings Qigong into your daily thoughts and practice.  I had so many aha moments to change my life. Thank you.

Linda Whildin, Massage Therapist - Firestone, CO May 11, 2019

What a powerful gift you have given me.

My heart is so full of appreciation for the continued unfolding gifts of learning Qigong and your empowerment practices.

My beloved Ryan and I had the most intense team session we have ever led. It lasted 11 days. In addition to our normal approach I taught Qigong one hour each day and in small breaks. We had 40 leaders.

The transformation of the group was amazing.  The practices were the foundation to allow folks to move through conflicts, emotions and toward forgiveness and solution.

The teams began to intuitively use the language and experience from the Qigong practice into their mental framework of how to work together.

Within one week folks who couldn’t sit still were able to hold steady for several minutes. Literally embracing the bigger wave concept and the importance of generating fuel and burning it up the Chakras.  They even embraced the breath of fire techniques.

This was a group of scientists and PhD breeders who were amazed by feeling the heat their bodies could generate with focus. Mind blowing.

I brought a copy of your book and encouraged the group to connect to you.  The cool thing was one of the men at the training said your book was on his bedside table at home (his wife had purchased).

Also we referred a yoga teacher on staff to your teacher training. They want her to start teaching Qigong.

What a powerful gift you have given me.  The folks from Europe and Australia were especially grateful.

Thank you!

This was an excellent clinical insight into the mechanics and process of Qigong Healing.

This was an excellent clinical insight into the mechanics and process of Qigong Healing. I am excited to incorporate this into my practice, and highly motivated to train further.

David is a dynamic presenter as he blends a variety of ancient traditions with a modern-day lens to explain the concept of Qi

"Bowing to David Coon for an inspiring Medical Qigong class. David is a dynamic presenter as he blends a variety of ancient traditions with a modern-day lens to explain the concept of Qi  (life force/energy) and the severe emotional, physical and spiritual consequences of living with blocked-toxic Qi.  He taught us “the Qigong Antidote”…we practiced together many of the core Qigong movementsthe breathing and meditation techniques. It’s empowering to have the tools to create your own vitality. Not only did David reignite my personal Qigong practice but I can now incorporate several of the Medical Qigong techniques into my professional practice. Looking forward to the next class since David is the real deal!"

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.. you provide!

Dr. Rhiannon Hutton, DC, MAOM, LAc – Fayetteville, NC December 9, 2019

I am many steps further down the path and have a better view of the landscape thanks to David.

“It seems to me that one of the truly great ironies of life is that most of us spend our days stumbling about in a dream-like state, seeking happiness and fulfillment in the external world, and never realizing that deep inner peace is not only readily within our grasp, but is actually the essence of who we truly are. Coming to this realization is the first step in waking up, but the question becomes, “what is preventing us from accessing our natural state?” Admittedly, the process of self realization must be a personal experience, but that does not mean that we cannot receive assistance and guidance from others.

I can say that Qigong and the teachings transmitted through
David Coon have truly helped me in the process of awakening, gaining better
health, and experiencing deeper and more profound moments of peace. I had
been doing Qigong of sorts before I met David, but the practice took on
dramatically new dimensions after I began studying with him.  While I
value all that I have learned and experienced during the group classes that I
attended, it was through my one-on-one encounters with David that I began to
really get glimpses of what Qigong and Qi flow are and a better sense of who “I
am” after the trappings of the projected me were removed.  

The experience is multi-faceted and difficult to explain.  On one level, imagine old blockages in your being beginning to
dislodge and surges of energy coursing through your body.  On another
level, imagine a series of “aha” moments clicking in your head in rapid
succession as certain pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place.

If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity, then you do
not need to rely on my words.  You can create your own experiences.
 David has the special ability to sense what an individual fundamentally
needs in order to achieve better health or peace of mind and then help the
person to fulfill those needs.

All along, he wants to self empower those who he helps.
 Whereas we cannot truly recreate the transmission that comes from a
one-on-one experience with David, we can avail ourselves to the tools and
practices that he provides and take the initiative to integrate them into our
daily lives.

David even helps in this process by being able to personalize the teachings and techniques to the individual to help facilitate what he calls “short cuts”.  My journey towards true inner peace still lies before me, but I feel like that I am many steps further down the path and have a better view of the landscape thanks to David.

Phil Chilson, Professor of Physics – Norman, Oklahoma December 9, 2019

His awareness and guidance were very timely.

The highlights of this workshop for me were being the subject of healing demonstrations and David's numerous insights - for the class in general and for me personally. His awareness and guidance were very timely.
