    #081 Chess Edwards, part 1: on personal versus spiritual development, the inner adventure, and how meditation integrates into our waking life.

    Chess Edwards is a meditation teacher and spiritual guide. His entire career has been spent guiding people beyond their current limits and perceptions and into a greater and deeper engagement with the world. After a lifetime of dedicated personal development, he devoted the past decade to his spiritual development and awakening, and this has led to a rapid "collapse of the restrictive personal identification". He is dedicated to helping others reveal, awaken and empower their highest truth, potential, and brilliance.
     
    Key takeaways:
     • From adventure travel guide to guiding the unfamiliar territories within
     • The intersection between personal and spiritual development
     • The "self-help junkies" endless quest for an elusive peace and freedom
     • Meditation is not emptying your mind of thoughts, but recognising all thoughts are empty
     • How can meditation integrate into our waking life?
