“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
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.
