In addition to authoring her own books, Akuyoe has edited numerous compilations featuring the writing of incarcerated youth. See a selection of her work, which is currently taught at Stanford, Berkeley and USC, below.
The Little Book of Transformation: 7 Days to a Brand New You
This is a definitive work of inspiration for busy people on the spiritual path; a sweet and simple road map for the care, feeding and evolution of our souls. The Little Book of Transformation is a manifesto on how to live a more authentic, creative and purposeful life.
Spirit Awakening: A One-Woman Play
Spirit Awakening is the source text for Akuyoe's critically acclaimed one-woman show, which details her physical and emotional voyage from Ghana to Britain to New York. Akuyoe’s personal encounter with her transcendent inner beauty was the culmination of a long journey, and in Spirit Awakening she animates the pivotal characters who influenced her along the way. Akuyoe takes audiences on her odyssey of Self-discovery – from tribal princess in her native Ghana, to British schoolgirl, to socialite-wannabe in New York, and finally back to her original African heritage and deeper spiritual Self.
