Our times are full of denial on one hand and despair on the other vis-à-vis climate change and ecocide on planet Earth. We will explore the medicine of the mystics to confront both denial and despair, and to find a path to hope that includes action, new movements, and what Naomi Klein calls “the internal work [that] is crucial as we come together in resistance and transformation.”

Botanical aromas in the form of essential oils have a direct and intimate relationship with our spirit. When we breathe during meditation, we connect our mind, body and spirit with every inhalation. When we partner our breath with essential oils, we are infusing the spirit of the plant into our body as well.

Drumming is a time-honored method of healing and helping others. While the drum has the ability to put us in touch with our own natural rhythms, the circle helps draw our individual energies together, unifying them into a consolidated force.

Chakras are centers of life force or vital energy in the human body. Each of the chakras correspond to points in the physical body such as major arteries, veins and nerves, as well as vital organs. The energy that flows through our chakras effects not only the physical body but also our emotional and spiritual lives.
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.
