Join the Wheaton Franciscans on Friday, November 1 for Taizé Prayer Service.
Taizé is a Christian ecumenical prayer service that is designed to achieve a contemplative state and Christian unity through participation in song, scripture and silent prayer. It helps to quiet the mind and open your heart to God.
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, 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.
Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. Spiritual direction can be the next step on your journey if you long to find meaning in your spiritual life, discover your inner-self, and grow closer to God and to others.
Thursdays, November 7, 14 & 21, 2019 from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM (CST)
Writing opens windows into our inner-life. Writing can keep us centered, help us discover new aspects of ourselves, and new perspectives on our lives. When we come together as a community of those who write, we share these discoveries in a safe circle.
Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (CST)
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.
Monday-Thursday, 10:00AM-6:00PM CST
(Fridays are available as listed, and Saturdays are by special arrangement.)
At Tau Center, we encourage you to give your head a rest and work from your heart towards peace and spiritual nourishment. In our busy lives, we rarely ever get a moment to ourselves – to sit in quiet and reconnect with our heart. 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.
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.
