Muse Life Guide FAQs
Muse Life Guide is comprised of the trifecta of holistic wellness – Muse Life Coaching for the mind, Muse Nutrition for the body, and Muse Yoga for the spirit. The word “Muse” means to look inward, as opposed to always looking outward, for the power, strength, inspiration, validation, and resources to create a meaningful and beautiful life for ourselves.
We often look externally for validations as a measurement of our worth. But what if we looked within ourselves for the love, courage, and acceptance that we need to create the life that we want to live?
The Muse logo is a mandala in the shape of a blooming white dahlia flower. The Muse dahlia flower mandala represents an individual’s wholeness in relations to the universe, and their spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical journey and growth through time and space. The centre of the flower represents an individual’s core, and the blooming rings of petals surrounding the individual represents their flourishing journey. As they grow brighter, so does their positive reach and inspiration to others.
Muse chose the dahlia flower as its logo because it symbolizes inner strength, creativity, change, and sacred values, all of which are important attributes required for positive growth. Additionally, a white dahlia, such as in the case of the Muse logo, represents focused pure intentions, another important factor in positive change.
I believe we all have the capability and capacity within us to live the life we want. We just have to believe we can and are worthy enough to live that life.
Be your muse.
Muse Life Guide was founded by Edmond T Cheng. Edmond’s passion is in working with people to discover their passions, and transform their potential into meaningful and tangible manifestations of their visions and values. His passion came after a life changing moment many years ago when he realized he was living his life for others than himself, which led him to question his own beliefs, identity, and values. What Edmond came to realize was that his whole life was made up of layers and layers of cultural, societal, and familial expectations of what it meant to be a man, of what it meant to be an Asian man, and of what it meant to be a gay Asian man. It came to a point where he wanted to live the life he’s always wanted to live, and that meant becoming his own man, his own sun, the author of his own story, and the master of his own universe. But in order for Edmond to be his own sun, he realized he had to be open and willing to the idea of self-discovery and to do the work required to fulfill his purposes in life. And once he said, ‘yes’ to the universe, ‘yes’ to his future, and ‘yes’ to himself, that was when the transformation began. And that was when Edmond turned his life long passion of helping people into transformational coaching and holistic nutrition consulting, and his 15+ years of yoga practice into yoga teaching.
Through Edmond’s journey of self-discovery, he experienced what it felt like to be mentally, physically, and spiritually aligned, which led him to want to bring that empowering experience to others through his work. When we are totally aligned, we are in the clearest mind, at our freest point, and at our high peak in that moment of our lives to make the most positively impactful decisions that serves our highest selves and our deepest values.
Edmond is an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC); Erickson International Certified Neuro-Linguistics Programming (NLP) Practitioner; Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) that specializes in Hatha, Yin, Pain Care, Chair Yoga and Yoga Nidra; Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN) Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP), and a Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners (CANNP) Natural Nutrition Clinical Practitioner (NNCP).
It’s called total transformation coaching because depending on the services you purchase, Edmond has the ability to coach you through all three layers of your being - mind (life coaching), body (nutrition), and spirit (yoga).
Our collective holistic health and wellness approach empowers you to create the clarity and direction to live your most authentic and purposeful life.
Our collective holistic health and wellness approach empowers you to create the clarity and direction to live your most authentic and purposeful life. Unlike many wellness companies that focus on one or two areas of wellness, Muse focuses on all three areas of being of mind, body, and spirit. According to Edmond, “having experienced what total alignment of all three areas of being felt like, it was the most empowering experience ever because you are at your clearest mind to be able to see into the future of what your life can be if you just take the steps towards it.” And even if you only purchase one or two of the three available services, there will be principles of each wellness service incorporated into your sessions to encourage total alignment of your entire being.
Muse takes an inclusive, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach to coaching, nutrition, and yoga. Everyone is seen as whole and unbroken, behind every behaviour is a positive intention, that everyone is okay, and has the resources within them to make positive changes in their lives.
Muse offers Muse Life Coaching (mind), Muse Nutrition (body), and Muse Yoga (spirit) services. Each of these three services can be purchased online at muselifeguide.com.
