Taking a nurturing timeout for yourself is essential to rejuvenating or healing your mind, body and spirit.
Tau Center offers a peaceful and reflective setting for individuals and groups seeking to carve out space for deepening their inner lives. Spend a retreat day at Tau Center and enjoy the grounds including our Peace Path, Labyrinth, Chapel, Meditation Rooms and Quiet Rooms, as a way to reconnect with your authentic self, your dreams and visions, and the Divine within.
Retreats can be custom-designed to meet your individual or group needs and may include Spiritual Direction upon request. Facilitation and teachings from the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters are available for both individuals and groups. We welcome anyone to take time in your busy life and give yourself the gift of peace and contemplation.
If you would like more details on arranging a Day Retreat or Guided Retreat for yourself or a group, please call us at 630-909-6805.
Between our cell phones, television, computers, work, kids and family, we rarely ever get a moment to ourselves these days – to sit in a quiet space and reconnect with our inner-wisdom. At Tau Center, we encourage you to give your head a rest and work from your heart towards peace and spiritual nourishment.
Guided Retreats provide the time for you to work directly with a Spiritual Director on a day specifically designed for you. During the retreat you are given time for contemplative and solitary activities, including prayer, journaling, reading, walking the grounds, art and music. You will have time to meet with a spiritual director and to share any issues that may have emerged. You may be given a scripture reading or something that might help you to be compassionately present with whatever has surfaced in your life.
At Tau Center, we understand how busy your faith work is and how important it is to your local community. That’s why we offer retreats for churches and other faith communities to give you and your staff the space and time to refresh and rejuvenate your own spirits and bring renewed energy back to your congregations. We encourage your staff to leave their daily surroundings and use Tau Center as a space to focus not on the work you do, but why you do it.
Tau Center welcomes local nonprofits, women’s and men’s groups, businesses and other organizations to a Private Retreat where they can experience a day of reflection, team sharing or other customized program options.
Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.― Matthew 11:28
If you're looking for a space for silent prayer or deepening of your spiritual life, Tau Center offers a peaceful setting for you to enjoy a self-guided retreat where you will enjoy your own Quiet Room along with other amenities such as our chapel, outdoor peace path, labyrinth and more.
