Superb Review by tomvwash

I spent more than a year looking for a Qigong teacher--on the internet and around Washington, DC area and no one takes a comprehensive, intellectual, historical, and spiritual approach like Ken Cohen. Finally, a genuine instructor. At $66, the price of this program is extraordinary--full package in every sense of the word and then some.

Fantastic teacher, fantastic course! Review by acupunctureguy

This is the best DVD/CD instructional training program for qigong that I have come across. I bought this program several years ago but it wasn't until just recently that I started it. I have learned qigong from many masters and from many videos and, while having a live teacher is indispensable, I don't feel that I am compromising by learning in this format. Some reviewers have criticized the format due to the lack of continuity, ie, listening to a track on one CD then watching the DVD, then listening to a track on another CD, however, after you've listened to/watched them a few times you shouldn't have to refer to them every day. Sometimes it's good to review the basics regarding posture and breath but after about the third day I had already set to memory the flow for the first 10 days (and it gets easier as the weeks progress). When you start the training you'll see that many of the tracks aren't even introduced. They are available for further training after the 100 days or, if you are really motivated, they can be incorporated along the way. The training is very methodical and with it what you want! I actually put all the CDs onto my iphone so that I can jump from track to track and CD to CD very quickly and easily. I also have a meditation timer app so when it's time to sit for 10 minutes or more I just pause the training CD, tap the meditation app (preset to the desired length of time) and carry on. Don't be put off that it's not structured so neat and's dynamic.

Bottom line...if you're interested in learning qigong this way then just buy it and do it! Read the booklet, watch the DVDs, get a sense of what you are going to be doing, and then doesn't have all be done on the first day...take your time, slow down, and learn qigong from a true master.

Oh, and enjoy!

Fantastic! Review by David W.

This is a fantastic course. I am very sensitive to energy and this has given me another avenue to work on myself. I can feel the cleansing of my organs and bone marrow. I can feel the energy move as Ken instructs. Simply wonderful lessons.

FOLLOWING ALONG IS EASY - I simply downloaded the CDs to my computer and then transferred to my iPad mini. This will allow you to simply play the lesson of the day. Then load the DVD into your dvd player. Listen to the lesson and then when it's time to watch a lesson simply use the MENU on the DVD to watch the lesson of the day. Simple audio menu on my iPad and simple video menu on the DVD player.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Rhonda J

I did not yet receive this package in the mail. I've checked every day. Is it an online product? I only wanted a CD / DVD product.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Jan B

I was excited to receive the package yet disappointed to see that the content of each of the 100 days was not in one place. In other words, to get the content for day one I would need to go to this CD and that DVD to assemble it myself. For that reason, I will return it.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Norah B

This looks like a great course - I have begun the 100 days and will punctuate Ken's work with a local teacher - will take the materials with me when I see her.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by David T

This 100 day course was EXCELLANT. I have been studying Qigong for a decade and found the course not only great for furthering my understanding but also would be tremendous for anyone just starting out in Qigong study.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Jay Dancing Bear

If every American owned this hospitals would be empty. A well thought out selection of moves, Excellent detailed presentation, a great set to keep the beginner (me) learning and improving health for quite a while. Excellent value for one's money

Loving the program, which does not disappoint. A real pleasure to participate with this instructional package.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Donna

The instruction is clear and easy to follow, but in order to do the suggested practice you have to change tracks and DVD's, plus you must always go through the very basics again and again so there is no flow at all. This would be ok if the workbook had the movement sequences presented so you could use that to practice without the DVD, but it does not. All this set needs is a full flowing practice session to follow along with once the basic moves are learned.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by Jennifer

Very comprehensive, clear instruction. Great information about over healing benefits of Qigong. Inspiring. But, to do the lessons in order the student has to use different tracks on different CDs, then different chapters on different DVDs rather than lessons being recording in order as to not get distracted by changing and searching for different, out of order tracks and chapters for just one lesson. Does not make for optimal learning. If I would have know this I might not have purchased it.

Review for The Essential Qigong Training Course Review by WALTER JACKSON

No real meat; no 8 brocades, Crane set, Bear Set, and so on. It is focused on healing; healing sounds, meditation, and lots of stuff on "healing with hands" which few Americans would ever believe in. But, it is a very well considered course containing enough to make it worth twice the current price. KC is not as starry eyed as most Qigong teachers, but he is damn close.
