Explore – Awaken – Transform

With Spiritual Awakening
& Ultimate Freedom Guide
Chess Edwards

Some of the most transformational work I do with clients and students happens during private retreats spread over a period of 1 – 4 days.

These private retreats are ideal for individuals or a small group of friends.

The Experience

While staying at my Thunder House Sanctuary on the edge of Sedona’s sublime wilderness, we customize the sessions and timing of how we’ll work together.

Through direct and intimate Self Realization teachings, focused spiritual awakening exercises, integrated breathwork, sacred time out on the land, privately guided meditations and dynamic life re-scripting and empowerment processes, you will…

  • Awaken your most powerful presence that you can bring into every area of your daily life.
  • Develop critical skills for staying present, centered, strong and clear when life is most challenging and overwhelming.
  • Discover the Art & Power of True Stillness.
  • Incorporate daily empowerment & meditation practices for vibrant and conscious living.
  • Establish and deepen a core foundation of trust.
  • Expand your capacity to connect more genuinely and gracefully in all your significant relationships.

“Come to rest in the stillness…

Until you come to know yourself

as The Stillness.”  ~ Adyashanti

Chess Edwards is a Sedona-based self-realization guide, sacred wisdom teacher and meditation instructor who guides people in the awakening of their true nature, just as it has awakened within himself.

Chess has devoted himself to a path of ultimate freedom, dedicated to the pursuit and embodiment of truth and divine peace. He is a peacefully awakened guide who will help you discover and embrace your most authentic, vibrant and whole self.

As a teacher and guide, Chess regularly transforms people’s lives in a single 2-hour session.

“My time with Chess in Sedona was extremely empowering. I came away from the retreat with a profound connection to my deepest and truest nature.

I encourage anyone who wants to transform their lives through expanded consciousness to book a private retreat with Chess and push through to a whole new level of awakening.”
