Due to COVID, all our 2020 programs were cancelled. We spent our time writing an online program for mothers to support them with connecting their children to the natural world during these uncertain times. We were able to continue moving forward with Eagle House, but at a slower rate than we hoped. However, with our course nearing completion, and the return of one of our main helpers, we plan on devoting a great deal of our time to complete Eagle House by the spring of 2021.
We believe that every child, every parent, grandparent and soul seeker should have the opportunity to retreat from the busy world we live in and discover the healing benefits of being immersed in nature.
We are striving to upgrade our facilities so that Hawk Circle can welcome people of all ages with a varying degree of abilities.
Eagle House is our first BIG upgrade and is so close to being completed. It's a beautiful, inspiring space that offers a large room for working on crafts, meditation, yoga and community gatherings without having to worry about inclement weather. It also offers bathrooms and warm showers and is fully accessible.
Completing Eagle House will allow us to welcome in more people during the later fall, winter and spring months providing them with a warm, dry place.
Will you please help complete this important project?

Hawk Circle and The Earth Mentoring Institute are
a 501C3, non-profit organization.
Mid-town West School, from NYC, was our first group to enjoy Eagle House. We had a rainy day and the space worked great for keeping dry while working on crafts.
Aside from completing the electric work, completing the plumbing and installing bathroom fixtures is our next important step. Using porta-johns is everyone's least favorite part of their experience here at Hawk Circle.
