Frequently Asked Questions

I am wondering if it is safe to do a medical Qigong session or Qigong class with a pregnant woman? Thanks!!

Good question. When someone is pregnant relaxation and smoothness of flow is appropriate. So when doing Qigong simply slow and easy movements and breath. Nothing too dramatic like breath of fire or challenging Qigong poses for extended periods of time. Everything mindful. The same is true for a medical Qigong treatment. Very smooth healing sessions – everything calming. You know if a pregnant person is receiving too much energy during a Medical Qigong session when they get stressed and overtly bumpy? Make sure everything is instead is smooth emotional, soft tears is fine. The emotional catharsis that is “bumpy” while pregnant as opposed to smooth is not recommended. So watching and holding space and if things start building up, the breathing gets heavier or the blood is pumping harder or you see the face getting red then you need to back off and calm everything down down down. Bring energy back to the feet have the person open and close hands. Ground them. Coach them in a normal breathing pattern ” I want you to breathe in through your nose and slowly exhale through your nose and then mouth. Relax everything is ok.” But if your paying attention there should be no problem. This isn’t going to happen right away..so simply be watchful and work gently and do no harm..

I loved the online course Alchemizing Stress & Restoring Balance. Would you ever teach that one live again?

Thanks for asking this question. At this time we are only planning on teaching one live intensive course at a time each year or two and then filming the course in a studio. So, we do not plan on reteaching previous workshops from past years. We attempt to create a new course each year so that our students can still receive credit from the acupuncture and massage boards each year to renew their licenses.

Incredible Online Intensives Reviews

I really enjoyed taking this Medical Qigong Class.

I really enjoyed taking this Medical Qigong Class. It was easy to understand, and I can't wait to start using the exercises regularly myself and incorporating the healing treatments into my Acupuncture practice.

This course has given me some oomph!!

"I have been practicing Qigong sporadically for years for my own health and well-being. This course and the methods used have inspired me to use it in my therapy sessions. I know it is important to make it a practice to be that much more effective for my clients. This course has given me some oomph!! to follow this path more diligently. Thank you David!"

You have a way of presenting complicated information and relationships that makes it comprehensible!

"I am both encouraged and inspired by your work, your approach and your way of thinking about and weaving together so many aspects of this art and work! You have a way of presenting complicated information and relationships that makes it comprehensible! Thank you so much for preparing and presenting this workshop.... and for all the work you have done in order to be able to create it."

“I think he fully embodies what he is teaching”

This course was really well presented by Mr. Coon. I felt like he was completely grounded within himself, very confident in his delivery - and also uninhibited in his demonstrations, which was somehow a relief for me to witness. I think he fully embodies what he is teaching.

I’ve done the whole intensive from the comfort of my home. Thank you for this wonderful journey!

I have been practicing Qigong locally in Switzerland for about three years, but I took the online intensive with Qigong Awareness because I had already been using the short videos of David’s explaining various extremely useful movements and their benefits. I work as a private Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach. My intention is to help my clients with a variety of techniques. It happened so that I had a few clients with burnout, high levels of stress and fatigue, and I’d successfully introduced some of the movements that I learned from David already on youtube. I knew I needed to learn more from him, so here I am still practicing 8 treasures locally, and learning from David to become an instructor. The Medical Qigong is beneficial for the whole being, and it brings me the sense of stillness, calms me down, or wakes me up when I need the energy for work or any other mental, or physical task.

The fact that the course is online, it will not bring me recognition for Continuous Education within my country, but what I really want is learning and training so that I can provide more options for my clients to live healthier, more balanced lives.

The videos were explained in detail, depth, with a lot of additional information from David, and I printed out the booklet as well.

I was able to train with the participants on the screen, completely absorbed, and I stopped the video whenever I needed to write down what I just heard from David.

I’ve done the whole intensive from the comfort of my home. Yes, it took me a few morning hours, but it was well worth the money and effort. I look forward to continue training and learning more from Qigong Awareness. The follow up was extremely accurate and fast. The test and questionnaires at the end were well prepared and they made me revise quite a bit before I could reply. It means that they make sure for a participant off-site to retain the important knowledge. Thank you for this wonderful journey!

“The lectures impressed and lifted me”

I find it exhilarating to work with the class material for myself, my acupuncture patients and my family! The qigong exercises and healing techniques calm my shen and vitalize me for work, play, relationships and life's challenges.

The practices taught by David blend beautifully with my yoga life that has been in cultivation 27 years. He gracefully brought to light the deep correspondences between acupuncture channels, yogic chakras, the endocrine system, the heart and emotions, and how they all affect the body and mind.

The lectures impressed and lifted me with affirmations from Eastern and Western medical literature as to the power of the mind and body to heal.

The peaceful sitting meditations balance the rigorous 'on your feet' qigong and offer practices for healing others in distant locations, an opportunity that I treasure.

This workshop is golden for people who like to move, feel, love and heal!

It was a teaching moment that sealed the deal to his validity as a master teacher and ignited my desire to learn more.

David's discussion about I AM and his decision to have dominion over energy was a moment of personal transformation. His story gave me strength to no longer choose a passive path, which I believe, as well, to be insincere. It was a teaching moment that sealed the deal to his validity as a master teacher and ignited my desire to learn more.

It has caused enormous positive shifts internally and externally in my world…

"The tools and techniques presented in this course were incredibly useful, but the energetic subtext has been even more valuable. It has caused enormous positive shifts internally and externally in my world, and built up my excitement to continue practicing. Thank you!"

Jennifer Tartakoff, LAc http://www.avonacupuncture.com/ Southington, CT May 23, 2017

WOW! I learned a lot…

I learned that the Chakra system and the endocrine system are inextricably linked. You can heal pain anywhere in the body by breathing into the heart. I can feel and witness the Kundalini shake in myself and my patients... WOW! I learned a lot and this intensive reinforced my belief in the way medicine should work for patients. Thank you.

Andrea Arteaga, LAc Carlsbad, CA May 23, 2017

“I really appreciate the piece of practitioner exercises as sometimes we put so much effort into seeing clients and forget about ourselves”

"This was an excellent course. I appreciated that I could do the modules in one hour segments - because sometimes long weekend intensive courses can be, well too intensive. I really appreciate the piece of practitioner exercises as sometimes we put so much effort into seeing clients and forget about ourselves and we are a good part of the equation for healing. Thank you and I hope you will consider doing more of these for NCCAOM. I am an acupressurist and can see how medical qigong work can be useful for my clients!"
