Thank you for visiting my website. I am very honored you have taken the time to get to know a little about who I am. I’ve always pondered how best to summarize the many details of my life’s journey, so it’s my hope the following might help in that after reading this!
My name is Andrew Arthur Dawson. I was born a Gemini on June 11, 1972 to Lewis and Pamela Dawson in a small city in New York named Poughkeepsie. I spent the first 23 years of my life in New York State. After graduating from Arlington High School in Lagrange, at the age of 18, I spent the next five years at Rochester Institute of Technology earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Systems and becoming a founder father of the New York Theta Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi. My degree landed me my first job in the workforce of this world at a computer consulting company in Fairfax, VA, in January 1995.
For the next decade, I feverously worked as a programmer, software tester, systems analyst, data architect, quality assurance representative, and team leader in various software based operations. While I gained tremendous experience along the way, I always felt I was meant to do something different. So, in the fall of 2003, I decided to take a risk by purchasing a bed and breakfast, the 1848 Island Manor House, on Chincoteague Island, VA.
Owning a bed and breakfast and being an innkeeper is hard work contrary to what many people imagine it might be like. In addition to the many financial responsibilities of owning an inn, hosting guests in your own home day in and day out can be quite challenging. Thankfully, there was plenty of downtime when it was off-season where I had ample time to sit with myself and ponder my spiritual journey. It was during those times that I learned about the power of prayer and meditation, where I discovered the joy to write, where I learned how to do numerology readings, and where I studied a great deal about holistic healing modalities, such as homeopathy and kinesiology.
When the journey ended in my venture into the bed and breakfast industry, I moved northward, to just outside Boston, Massachusetts, to be closer to my sister Laura and her family. During the time I spent living in the New England area, I came to face parts of me that I hadn’t healed yet. Through holistic medicine, a number of natural healing modalities, meditation, and twelve step recovery programs, I have gone through a tremendous amount of healing within and developed a much deeper relationship to my Higher Power.
I enjoy speaking now at places where people are seeking help for their addictions. In addition, I also teach meditation, help many learn more about themselves through numerology and other healing modalities, and write about these spiritual experiences and much more in my daily blog. Presently, life has me living in Toledo, OH with my partner where I continue to walk on my spiritual path.
While the world has become so hurried today with so many things to occupy our time, it is very easy to lose sight of our individual gifts and the enlightenment that has already manifested within each of us. It is for this reason that my continued mission in life is to slow down from this hurried pace, to love everyone unconditionally along the way, including myself, and to help as many as I can find the healing from within that I continue to discover each day.. Through White Dove Holistic Healing, I am currently achieving that by offering meditation instruction, numerology readings, freelance writing, life-coaching, and motivational speaking.
