Laurie Pawli, certified feng shui consultant and director of the Feng Shui School of Chicago, will present three opportunities around the Chicagoland area to contemplate the possibilities of a new chapter in our unfolding cosmic history.

Equilibrium Energy: from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., January 9, in Chicago. She says, “You will learn what to do to harmonize your animal sign with the rat and make this a successful, abundant year as we practice how to welcome the gods of wealth into your home. Free gifts for all, raffles.”

Celebration of the Metal Rat: from 9:30 a.m. to noon, January 11, at the Double Tree Oak Brook. There will be feng shui tips, crystals, stones and meditation.

East Meets West: from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., January 12, at Infinity Foundation. “Learn how to energize the three areas of command. We will enjoy a representation of the foods served during the new year,” says Pawli. There will be gifts and raffles, as well as crystals and stones for purchase.
