The Benedictine Center in Maplewood is offering these upcoming enrichment opportunities in March.

• Bio-Spiritual Focusing Basics: Friday, March 10, from 8:30 to 5:30 p.m. The cost is $125, which includes lunch and materials. Participants will learn how to heal themselves by moving out of their heads and tapping into their innate gifts — which hold the keys to healing and a more peaceful life. Led by Srs. Virginia Matter and Joanne Dehmer, who have received training in this process from the Institute for Bio-Spiritual Focusing.

• Shape of the Divine: Working with Clay as Spiritual Practice: Six Mondays, March 6 thru April 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The cost is $150, which includes materials. Participants will learn how making hand-built vessels can be a process of meditation. It is part of the Center’s “Art and Spirituality” focus which explores how artists encounter God through the creative process. Taught by Virginia Matter, a Benedictine Sister, expert potter, spiritual director and teacher of Centering Prayer.
