Looking for a philosophical name for my chess project

Amer asked:

I’ve been searching through philosophy and history to answer this question, but I am not very knowledgeable on this subject. I have a chess company I am about to open, the goal of this company in general is to provide events, tournaments, and school, for everything related to chess…

Is there any person in history or a story in philosophy that talks about a place where its a perfect place for what ever specific type of people, a place where when you enter, you become complete. Even a dream of a philosopher, mythology, or person in history that they have written or spoken about. I am also ok with a word that holds the significance of what I am talking about. A unique word that holds meaning to a place of pure focus, intelligence, happiness. I don’t want a long quote or phrase unless it includes a specific name in it. Or if its a phrase or quote, it is suppose to be a specific significant person or group of people talking about that place.

If there isn’t anything like that, then a historical person or mythical person who represents an ordinary being but when he acts on a specific thing for e.g. when he is on the battle field or other activity, he/she shows his/her inner genius and intelligence… Thanks for your patience.

One of the great masters of the past, Siegbert Tarrasch, wrote: “Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make a man happy.”

A great line that might serve you at least as a motto, since it ties love and chess together as possible modes of deep experience.

The goddess of chess is Caissa, as I’m sure you know. The Greek name for heaven was Elysium. Hence or “Elysium Caissa” might suit you?
