I created Sunsum Intention Candles as a direct response to the dogma in wellness. I found a connection to the culture in Ghana. The adinkra symbols are actually ideograms attached to attitudes, behaviors or expressions. The Akan and Ashanti people used them on cloth, metal and wood as metaphors and non-verbal communication. I selected 12 adinkra ideograms that resonate with me and my own personal journey to healing and self-mastery. Each ideogram was interpreted, styled and paired with an affirmation for intentional living.
