“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!!!

“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.

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."

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.

“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.

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.

“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 is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students… I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine.”

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.

I am looking forward to the next class because this one has totally changed my life.

I walked away from this workshop feeling so empowered. I went home feeling grounded, strong and enlightened. I am a licensed acupuncturist and it has totally changed my practice. I am more present during the treatments and my intuition has expanded. I am looking forward to the next class because this one has totally changed my life.
