ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This exhibition is an audio journey through the enlightened words of the High Priestesses. Part self-help, part aural healing, the sacred recordings offer therapeutic resonance that may be used on a daily basis to overcome any obstacle and bring life-changing results. This particular zodiac reincarnation brings together teachings from Michelle Andrade, Michelle Chong, Meg Cranston, and Bridget Kane. Callers are encouraged to breathe deep into the belly and freely, without inhibition, release the breath through the mouth and let out sighs of HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!. High Priestesses is organized by Michelle Chong. 323 Projects invites you to experience High Priestesses by calling (323) 843-4652 or (323) TIE-IN-LA. The show is open all day and all night, every day of the week.
