The labyrinth is an ancient symbol used around the world as a metaphor for life's journey. For centuries, labyrinths have been used for centering reflection, self-discovery, and mindful movement for all who take the time to walk or wheel the path. Join us December 20 for our special Advent session, a Winter Labyrinth Journey and Reflection.
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, Chapel, Meditation Room and Quiet Rooms, as a way to reconnect with your authentic self, your dreams and visions, and the Divine within.
During this busy holiday season, we often forget that Advent is the special time of year when we prepare ourselves for the mystery of Christmas – the celebration of the coming of Jesus as human. Give yourself a gift of time and reflection during this Holy Season to ponder this mystery and prepare your heart for the joys of Christmas.

The labyrinth is an ancient symbol used around the world as a metaphor for life's journey. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one entrance, one path, and one destination - taking us to our center and returning us again to the world. For centuries, labyrinths have been used for centering reflection, self-discovery, and mindful movement for all who take the time to walk or wheel the path.

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.
Tau Center is a spirituality ministry of the Wheaton Franciscans. We are a welcoming community of faith striving together to be instruments of peace, hope and justice in our world today.
