BIO

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.
