So you forgot your mantra, shattered a healing crystal, lip-locked on a soul kiss, and couldn’t get it up for tantric sex. Local spiritual therapist Mark Smith has the solution for you: auras. Smith’s In a New Light teaches even the most boneheaded new-ager how to read the spiritual energy pulsating around all our bodies. (When I see a fuzzy glow around people, I assume it’s time for my annual visit to the eye doctor, but what do I know?) Smith demonstrates his own aura-reading powers at 7:30 p.m. at Borders, 534 N. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg. FREE. (301) 921-0990.
