Chess Edwards is a Sedona-based meditation and self realization guide who teaches the foundations of conscious, peaceful and awakened living.
Chess is available for face-to-face or remote interviews.
Chess Edwards is a true adventurer and life fulfillment guide. He has spent his life in devotion to exploring and awakening the full potential of the human spirit as an adventure travel guide, storyteller, executive coach, corporate trainer, meditation teacher and self-realization guide.
Chess has coached top tier business leaders and designed team development trainings for international companies, such as Microsoft, eBay and Disney, to small non-profit organizations. As a former adventure travel guide and photographer, his captivating photography has been displayed in art galleries and published in magazines such as Newsweek and Escape, telling the human story of connection and shared universal truths.
With over 20 years as an adventure travel guide, Chess explored the planet from the most remote regions of the Himalayas to the lost pre-Inca civilizations of the distant Northern Andes of Peru.
His travels to more than 25 countries and six continents, eventually led Chess to another grand adventure – the journey within. Feeling betrayed by the shallow promises made by mainstream voices of society, media, education, and family, Chess needed to heal from the pain, confusion and despair that comes with living an inauthentic and conditioned life.
Pain, in other words, drove him to seek liberation from the restrictions of the “illusion” he had been taught by others. Propelled by this powerful motivation, Chess has spent the past decade walking an inspired path that has awakened a divine consciousness within which continues to expand each and every day.
Today Chess’ purpose and devotion is to guide his clients and students to free themselves from the struggles and limitations of their egoic identity so that they may fully self-realize in the power, peace and presence of their Truest Self.
Chess Edwards is a champion of the human spirit, guiding people into stronger, deeper and more vibrant relationships with themselves, their work and the world they live in. His absolute joy is to help reveal, awaken and empower the full dimensionality of our highest truth and potential.

"I am so grateful that I was guided to Chess and can assure you that any time spent with him will change your life in some of the most profound and incredible ways. After just a few short hours of working with him I already had shifted my perspective on so many things
Chess has a way of helping you see things clearly while creating a safe and gentle space for you to open up and dig deep to help you learn so much more about who you truly are.
The environment he creates for the spiritual retreat is indescribable and I truly cannot recommend it more. I look forward to our sessions each week and cannot recommend working with him enough!"
“Throughout our work together I was able to deepen my truths, dissolve my limiting stories and build a strong foundation of belief in myself.
Most powerful was shining a light on my true skills, talents, and all the things that fully inspire me. I’m now creating the bigger, better, beautiful life that’s possible for me.
Chess holds THE most empowering, supportive, accepting and honoring space wherein anything feels, and is, possible.”

I consistently feel safe, seen, and celebrated by him, even in the moments when I have lost sight of myself.
It is with a gentle strength that he expertly navigates through my challenges with me. At every touch point, Chess has helped me move further on my journey, creating more peace and freedom of heart."

Hillary ~ Health Coach and Healer
"A session with Chess is very personalized, as he met me exactly where I am on my spiritual path.
It ignited my Spirit at a very deep level and I am now able to return to and maintain this powerful embodiment of inner peace.
Thank you Chess! I highly recommend his sessions!"
"While Chess was coaching me, I experienced so much clarity and the process was so much fun! Prior to the coaching I was struggling with finding a way to talk about what I do in my business with executive clients in an elevated and authentic way.
By the end of our session I had a number of new strategies I felt comfortable using and experienced more confidence in my ability to relate to new clients. Chess was masterful at asking me the right questions and moving me toward my goal through discovery and committed action."
"Working with Chess is an immensely worthy and valuable investment in yourself!
Chess helped me move from my initial desire to build a new career to moving full speed ahead in my wonderful new career. I have completely removed blocks that held me back from fully believing in myself and my creative abilities."
