Nurture Yourself with a Self-Guided Retreat at Tau Center
Taking a nurturing 'timeout' for yourself is essential to rejuvenating your mind, body and spirit.
At Tau Center, we offer Self-Guided Retreats where you can spend a day at Tau Center and enjoy the grounds including our Peace Path, Labyrinth, Chapel and Quiet Rooms, as a way to reconnect with your authentic self, your dreams and visions, and the Divine within.
We welcome anyone to take time in your busy life and give yourself the gift of peace and contemplation. For more details on arranging a retreat for yourself or a group, contact Sharong Devo at 630-909-6805.

Centering prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of God's presence within us. At each monthly session, we come together in order to deepen our experiential knowing of God through a journey of meditation and prayer. We might say that meditation is a journey of discovery. And, in this journey, contemplative prayer moves us beyond conversation with God to communion with Him.
Next Centering Prayer:
Tuesday, August 26
Additional dates include:
Facilitated by Sr. Lynn Schafer, OSF and Therese Yonikus
Drumming is an ancient practice in many cultures that promotes an atmosphere of healing. Its beat connects each person with the rhythm of their heart, as well as enhancing a connectedness with Mother Earth. It aligns your higher self and connects you with your sacred path.
Join us monthly for drumming in a comfortable atmosphere. If you do not have an instrument, please let us know ahead of time and one will be supplied for you.
