Who is Cici Dotson?
Cici is a woman who lives her life "on porpoise!"
As a former officer in the Army, Cici has had to learn to take care of herself. This also means, she has taken herself extremely seriously, and, at times, not seriously at all - quite a Balancing act, especially for a highly sensitive individual who decided to join the Army at 18 years old. Oh yes, she is a survivor!
Cici practices energy balancing through hand placements, flower essences, therapeutic gemstones, crystals, Reiki and now, Biofield Tuning.
In her late 20s, she noticed that her health was deteriorating and began taking steps toward healthier living. Part of that effort led her to a holistic practitioner who advised her in better nutrition with positive results. She started working with energy as a result of the same practitioner’s non-manipulative chiropractic adjustments. The effectiveness of using only hand placements fascinated her and she learned to use them on herself and others. Little did she know - this was the start of her energy work!
Throughout her 30s, Cici continued to learn about healthy nutrition, exercise, and holistic medicine concepts, but in 2009, she was deployed to Iraq with the Army Reserve. That meant leaving her husband and full time of job raising her young children. As a result, she experienced daily anxiety attacks prior to that deployment. Fortunately, she found that the attacks were relieved and their emotional “triggers” reduced through a combination of energy work and flower essences. Today, she uses Bach Flower Essences with her clients creating personalized blends for them as they work to balance emotions and attitudes.
As she returned home from Iraq, she found herself critically in need of re-evaluation and a new direction. It was during this time of intense introspection and healing that she discovered her abilities to feel or sense stones and other subtle vibrations, and perceive intuitive insights. She was drawn to the healing properties of crystals through reinforcing experiences with various stones. This eventually led her to explore therapeutic gemstones, which are high quality crystals, gems, and earth stones. She began her first workshop in Portland, OR with great skepticism! Powerful healing sessions involving gems such as amethyst, blue sapphire, sugilite, sodalight, and lapis lazuli convinced her of the gems' overwhelming effectiveness. She is now a graduate of the Gemisphere (TM) Gemstone Energy Medicine (TM) Certification Program and is versed in over 75 therapies using 40 gemstones.
In 2013, she moved to Colorado Springs, CO and began training through her apprenticeship with Jane Keeran, owner/operator of Rocky Mountain Auracles. Starting with Aura Image interpretations, she learned more about the chakra system and how to read and interpret energy patterns. Cici then learned Reiki and received plenty of coaching in how to incorporate the Reiki with the energy already flowing through her hands - no small feat! She is now a trained Reiki Master and offers classes upon request.
Soon after her apprenticeship with Jane began, she started Astrology lessons from John Keeran. Named Chaostrology, this variation incorporates current Astronomy, Spirituality, and Chaos theory and emphasizes life challenges and practical ways forward. They continue training at a distance. John and Cici are working to finish their Chaostrology book with fellow astrology student Vicky Rockey by Spring 2017.
Cici continues her training and education through regular meditation, introspection, group discussions, and classes. Most Recently, Cici attended Tuning the Biofield Level II with Eileen McKusick in Burlington, Vermont and is now conducting sessions. She looks forward to sharing her healing experiences and expertise with her fellow human beings with love.
