It’s the epoch of disbelief; it’s the epoch of credulity. What else could explain the offering of “two workshops using the principles of quantum physics and feng shui,” which handily combine Western scientism with Eastern hogwash. As an editor, all I care about “feng shui” is how to spell it (although the copy desk wants you to know it’s pronounced “fung shway”). But as a lapsed physicist, I’m obligated to tell you that unless you’re a specialist, you live a classical existence, since quantum physics approaches classicality for anything bigger than a jot. Unconvinced? Let “holistic energy healer, hypnotherapist, and feng shui consultant” Riva Wine lead you in “Creating a Personal Protective Shield,” then school you in “The Art of Feng Shui.” And no, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle won’t help you justify your romantic infidelities. At 10 a.m. & 2 p.m. at Unitarian Church of Rockville, 501 Mannakee St., Rockville. $30. For reservations call (301) 840-0974. (GD)
