Day Retreats

How many times have you found yourself with time or space, and a feeling that you need to fill it with something productive? That’s where we find ourselves most of the time. Keeping up with that shopping list. Getting the house cleaned. Finally getting around to that never ending to-do list. 

We rarely ever get a moment to ourselves these days – to sit in a quiet space and reconnect with our inner-wisdom. At Tau Center, we encourage you to give your head a rest and work from your heart towards peace and spiritual nourishment.

At Tau Center, we know how essential and nurturing it is to take a personal 'timeout', and how a day of retreat can rejuvenate your inner-spirit and your outer-being. We invite you to spend a personal retreat day at our facility where you will have your own Quiet Room and can take advantage of our beautiful grounds, peace path, chapel, and other amenities. We're here to provide a space that allows you to reconnect with yourself. Write, create, pray, meditate, relax, or find your inner-voice in the silence.

Tau Center welcomes anyone to take time in your busy life and give yourself the gift of peace and contemplation. Retreat days can be scheduled in half-day or full-day increments over one or several days, and can be custom-designed to meet your individual needs, including the companioning of a Spiritual Director.

Doors open at 8:00am, and you are invited to optional liturgy at 8:30am in Our Lady of the Angels Chapel located in the same building as Tau Center. Retreat rooms are available for use from 9:00am-6:00pm, Monday through Saturday. A refrigerator and microwave are located in Tau Center, and there is also a café at Marianjoy Hospital that serves a variety of hot and cold meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overnight accommodations are not available.

If you need assistance, we are always available to help you design a Day Retreat that meets your individual needs. So, please call us at 630-909-6805 or fill out the Retreat Inquiry form to the right and give yourself the gift of quiet time and reflection.

 True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nournishment and refreshment.
