Contemplative Virtual Retreats

Create a Space for Stillness and Reflection This Summer 

Summer is a joyful time centered around exploration of warmth, joy and exuberance. The arrival of summer brings forth freedom and growth.’  

During this period of summer, your spirit is waking up with new ideas and new dreams. With this intention we invite you to create a dedicated space in your home or outside for quiet prayer, contemplation, and reflection on the warm energy of summer. This area can be as simple as a comfortable chair with a small table, perhaps near a window to gaze on nature. Summer has the power to make you feel alive and inspired.

Individual & Directed Retreats

Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. A directed retreat can help you start the process as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.


Small Group Retreats & Programs

Tau Center is not open to small group programs at this time. We anticipate offering in 2022. 



Welcome to Tau Center

We offer a sacred space to assist individuals on their own spiritual journey – whether it is to reconnect with their inner-spirit or whether they are seeking a deeper relationship with God and the world around them. Our programs encourage an awakening of the spirit that leads to hope, healing, peace and transformation.
