OkayAfrica Presents: 'The Adinkra Oracle' September Reading with Simone Bresi-Ando

We're back with another Adinkra reading from Simone Bresi-Ando to help guide you through the new month.

Happy September!

We're back with another Adinkra reading from Simone Bresi-Ando to help guide you through the new month.

One of her tools you'll be getting to know through this series is the Adinkra Ancestral Guidance Cards—a deck comprised of 44 Adinkra symbols to help you channel information, messages and direction from your ancestors using Adinkra symbols. As many may know, the Adinkra is an ancient language linked with the Akan people of Ghana and the Gyaman people of Ivory Coast. Simone will give us an oracle reading and share what we need to hone into and keep in mind to have a fruitful month.

Watch below.


You can also get in tune with your ancestors with your own set of Adinkra Ancestral Guidance Cards, available on the Okayshop. Purchase here.
