She’s an activist, healer, teacher and performance artist – all rolled up into one. Her site, www.soularbliss.com, wants to calm and nurture the collective spirit. She believes inner healing is crucial for everyone - especially social entrepreneurs who need to clear their inner demons in order to most effectively transform the world. Currently, Adaku is working to bring awareness about LGBT issues to Nigeria with her piece Bringing Back Home, which will debut there later this year. As an out queer woman, her goal with the piece is to explore her relationship with her mother within the context of sexuality, sexual health, motherhood and love.
In her own words:
“I am a lover in awe of the manifestation of infinite love around me. A life liver grappling with and recognizing the faces of pain and trauma surrounding me and my communities. I see pain and trauma as sites of inspiration, transformation and healing. With courage and complete surrender, I invite all to speak their truth and dance with me to wholeness, opening a clear path for love to fulfill its intention in me. Living a life fully expressed physically, emotionally and spiritually is my beautiful struggle and my act of resistance. It is my manifestation of my divine purpose. In honor of our journeys, challenges and triumphs towards healing and loving ourselves, I created Soular bliss (www.soularbliss.com), a collective space to share, create, discuss recipes, remedies, rituals and resources to healing ourselves and communities whole.”
