About Us

About Tau Center

Established in 2008 by the Wheaton Franciscans, who live intentionally as a presence of blessing in our world, the Tau Center is committed to the transformation of our world by helping individuals awaken to the sacredness of life.

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.

Our open and diverse approaches to spiritual programs provide a comfortable space for people on different spiritual paths. We offer many perspectives to spiritual enrichment, including:

  • Contemplation and Prayer (teachings and practices)
  • Creative Spirituality through reflections and/or meditations, visual arts, soundings, music, etc.
  • Inner-Exploration and Self-Reflection
  • Holistic Care and Healing Arts for body, mind and soul 

Mission

In the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, Tau Center provides a peaceful and reflective environment for people seeking a deeper relationship with God, self, others and all of Creation. Through the integration of body, mind and spirit, Tau Center is committed to offering diverse experiences where individuals can nourish their spirit, find companions on their journey, and connect what they discover to meaning in their life and the world around them.

Our Vision

Tau Center is committed to the transformation of our world by helping individuals awaken to the sacredness of Life and reveal the unique gifts each person contributes to the hope and healing of all.

What is Tau?

We are asked this question often. Click here to find out the meaning and significance of the word 'Tau' in our name.

Let us endeavor to integrate the contemplative life and the active life, so that the active life is nourished and strengthened and supported through the contemplative and thus itself becomes rich in blessings.
