Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials
It is hard for me to express exactly what I’m feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level…
It is hard for me to express exactly what I'm feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level than "Alchemizing Stress". The energy was more palpable and the philosophy combined with technique application was tangible. Maybe it's because of the lesson. Maybe it is because Qigong is now more a part of my everyday life. Maybe because of something else. Maybe all of the above.
Again, my words fail me at this point to truly express on what I can only describe as what I feel or taste. They do not however elude me so much that they do allow me to say a heartfelt "Thank You!". 🙂

“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.

It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life.I truly enjoyed attending David Coon’s Medical Qigong Intensive seminar in Westminster Colorado! I am an acupuncturist and have studied qigong before this weekend. I always felt like I had a lot of holes in my qigong training, and there were many things I did not understand. David did a wonderful job of explaining and demonstrating everything. I’ve walked away feeling like my understanding has grown a great deal.It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life. We had people from all walks of life in our class from healing professionals, to retired people, to people who work in the corporate world with no qigong experience. The exercises are simple enough for everyone. I can easily teach them to my clients, and also get a great deal out of doing them myself. I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone who is thinking about learning qigong! and also to anyone who has studied it for a long time!

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."

“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.

“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.

“David inspired me! I am already adding Medical Qigong into my everyday life and acupuncture practice!”
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 also believe connect with Mr. Coon will benefit people suffering from chronic disease and/or unknown illness.
"To meet NCCAOM recertification requirement, I need to take some
classes. When I saw Mr. Coon’s online Qigong class “The ultimate mind
body medicine”, I was skeptical what I could learn from a hand on
Qigong practice online? After I followed the video instruction, I was
surprised on Mr. Coon’s teaching techniques and experiences. Without
any asian culture background, he makes the qigong so easy to
understand and follow. It is hard to believe the knowledges and
concepts he has regarding Chinese medicine, qigong and philosophy are
100% accurate; even the words he quoted during the class refer to the
Buddha's teaching also 100% accurate. He is a genius.
During the class he has mentioned about the distance healing. Again
this is something hard to believe and proof. I like to share this
remarkable phenomenon with you. I had asked Mr. Coon about the
limitation of qigong practice at day & night. He wrote back to me at
8:07 AM on August 12 ; I wrote to him at 8:36 AM the same morning;
then he responded to me at 8:41 AM right away. During 8:36 AM to 8:41
AM that same morning I felt Mr. Coon was in front of me and our chi
was connected, even though I did not know where he was. It is hard to
describe. But it was simple, I was in his mind and his thought. Mind
is Chi; Chi is mind; When you are focused and concentrated, chi goes
to where your mind goes; Especially when you are in deep meditation,
you are thinking someone in other continental, your chi also will
reach there too. As your meditation progress, the distance healing
power and psychic power will start to develop. I believe Mr. Coon has
these powers. I also believe connect with Mr. Coon will benefit people
suffering from chronic disease and/or unknown illness.

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.
