SOME SENSE OF COMFORT WITH SOME SENSE OF CONFUSION

For this event, Prince took on the role of hostess, welcoming guests dressed as a simplified version of her everyday self and offering them tea and a healthy snack. Part 1 was a guided meditation and a lecture on the wisdom of achieving nothing by spiritual teacher Michael Carroll. Following the group meditation, Prince staged a surprise performance, transforming into an sexier version of her everyday self. She served chocolates and topped off tea glasses with whisky. The lights were dimmed and Part 2 commenced- a reading of Anaïs Nin’s erotica by Jungian Dream Analyst Melissa Daum.

The intention of the event was to fill people with an elated sense of confusion. These two experiences are neither complimentary nor contradictory, and placing them next to each other forces us to question our perceptions of reality.
