Welcome to my haunted little cottage in the woods... er, internet. As one might expect, we'll get cozy and explore threshold territory including collapse, community, interspecies + land connection, liberation, play, and ritual. In this space there's general topics members can explore, weekly gatherings, and groups/courses people can join (these are typically at an additional cost). If grief, community, and liberation are your jam, you'll likely want to pull out the guest cot and stay awhile.
In addition to being a donkey and mule enthusiast, I'm a grief therapist, community organizer, and lawyer. In my search for what's just and holy I earned a Doctorate in Law and Masters in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. Yet, I found more Soul, more of what mattered, in witnessing grief and spending time with animal-kin. Now, I integrate my training and experience to create justice-based, transformative relationships between people, groups, and the more-than-human world. I'm currently practicing and researching social technologies, such as ritual, Deep Democracy work, and interspecies communication, that foster collective nervous system regulation. I've been called to help hold grief in these troubled and transitional times, so I live with my heart broken open and soul on display. For more information on me and my approach, explore my website at hollytruhlar.com.

In my life and work (and certainly in my online haunted cottage), I’m committed to creating spaces of equity and liberation for all people, particularly people with oppressed identities. This entails continually dismantling systems of oppression (within and outside of me), including the delusions of white supremacy + human supremacy. If justice (with lots of love), abolitionism, and collective liberation isn’t your thing, this likely won’t be either. Also, like most of us, I'm continually learning right use of power and how to cause less harm (AKA not be an advantaged a-hole). As such, I'm in supervision with Desiree Adaway and Melissa Taylor, and participate in several anti-oppression spaces.
Joining me in holly's haunted haven is $9/month USD. This includes the live bi-weekly chats with Holly (that's me!), access to all materials within the larger network, and priority registration to groups I facilitate.
Some groups and courses I facilitate will include access to the network while the group is actively meeting. In this case, please indicate that you're requesting to join as a member of a specific group or course.
~ sliding scale ~
I understand access to resources is a result of institutionalized white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, capitalism and colonization. A sliding scale fee structure allows those who have been systematically harmed by these unjust and inequitable systems to access holly's haunted haven without further disadvantage. As well, by offering significantly discounted subscriptions to BIPOC I'm acknowledging Black, Indigenous and People of Color for their generations of stolen land and resources. Please email me at [email protected] to inquire about a sliding scale subscription.
