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.

In the Christian Tradition the season of Advent anticipates new insights as it remembers ancient tales, via rituals, stories and symbols, of the human birth of a child named Jesus of Nazareth some 2000 years ago. Other global spiritual communities of ancient and present times also have rituals, stories and symbols to express their memories of promised love that gifted them with bits of heaven on earth.

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.
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.
