Welcome to Tau Center

We offer a sacred space to assist you on their own spiritual journey – whether it is to reconnect with your inner-spirit or whether you are seeking a deeper relationship with God and the world around you. Enjoy our beautiful campus and take a peaceful walk along the Peace Path – a winding path through a beautiful prairie of several acres planted with native Illinois grasses and small woodlands.
