Medical Qigong Workshop: The Ultimate Mind Body Medicine - Asheville NC

Date/Time

Mar 24, 2018 to Mar 25, 2018
08:30 AM until 05:00 PM

Description

LOCATION: Asheville, North Carolina  

This 15 Hour Course is for both Lay People and Professionals

Acupuncturists & Massage Therapists Receive 15 CEUs! Lay People Are Welcome!

  Medical Qigong is being revered as a "Miracle Medicine"
Please join us for this Life Changing Event!

The Ultimate Mind Body Medicine is a 2-day hands-on workshop with David J. Coon, Medical Qigong Master. Learn to cultivate and direct Qi for yourself and to bring profound healing to your clients. Learn Medical Qigong Exercises and Techniques to alleviate pain, calm the heart and boost the immune system.

It is becoming more of a well-known fact that the mind, body and spirit are not separate. By bringing greater awareness combined with the power of intention to the body we create the possibility for deep healing to occur. Quantum physicists are scientifically demonstrating that everything is made up of energy and that with our minds we have the power to influence it. In this workshop you will learn vital tools and exercises for invoking profound healing of mind, body and spirit.

In this intensive, you will learn both Qigong Exercises to teach your clients/students and Medical Qigong 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.

Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials

“This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening!”

“Not often do I attend a seminar for CEUS where I was so extremely engaged in the work being taught. David made it easy to embrace and let go. This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening! Would highly recommend it to anyone! He is a true gift to any participant.”

Tina Berisha, L.Ac, Davidson, NC 

 

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been too.”

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been too.  I am so glad I was there, I learned so much.  It was so enjoyable and transformative really.  The manuals are such high quality, better than anything I’ve gotten at other things. Qigong is new to me but I plan to make it part of my life. Thank you for everything.”

Kathy Wallace, Musician, Black Mountain, NC

 

“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.”

Ruth Gould-Goodman, M.A., L.Ac. Venice California.  

 

“This was one of my favorite CEU Workshops so far!.”

 Austin Dixon, Diplomate in Acupuncture, Licensed Acupuncturist – Durham, North Carolina

 

“Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.”

“Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.  It gave me Medical Qi Gong knowledge that I was able to use confidently right away for myself and for my patients.  The workshop also confirmed some of the practices I was already doing which only strengthens my confidence.  I loved learning all of the Qi Gong movements and exercises because running a busy practice can easily deplete me of Qi!  Doing these exercises grounds me and gives me the boost I need very quickly, and I love teaching them to my patients.  Thank you David for a great workshop that was all in all so revitalizing!  I know my Kidney and Wei Qi were very happy too!”
