Taraleigh Weathers wants to live in a world with lots of live music where people are celebrated for their uniqueness. As a human living with a nuerodiverse mind she has found ways to accept who she is in all her glory and rock the superpowers that come along with it.
Here’s what she’s accomplished because of who she is and not despite of it. After retiring from a successful professional dance and cheerleader career with the NBA, Taraleigh became a coach and retreat leader. She’s been featured in Relix Magazine, Huffington Post, No Simple Road Podcast, and MindBodyGreen. She’s had so much fun as a speaker/teacher at festivals such as Hulaween, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest, Grand Point North, Gathering of the Vibes, and Tumbledown Festival. Her book How to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday Experience has been called the best book in the Universe by a few people on the internet. She co-hosts a podcast on the Osiris Network called Groove Therapy where musicians and health experts discuss how to live your best life everyday and what happens in our minds and bodies during a live music experience.
When she’s not busy leading retreats around the world or coaching people with ADHD to fuse their trillion ideas into a viable business, she can be found at a music festival dancing like a wild woman dressed head to toe in sparkles.
After attending retreats with Taraleigh this happened:
Instead of “I hope these people dont think I’m stupid” I think “I hope these people think I’m fun to work with”. Instead of, “I hope this guy isn’t secretly a player”, I think “I hope this guy is as awesome as I believe.” Instead of, “I hope this job isnt too much for me” …”I hope this job is just right for me.”
Instead of..”I hope people don’t think my juice is a dumb idea”, …”I hope I have enough juice for everyone”.
Changing the way I think about things has really worked.
I highly recommend attending a retreat hosted by Taraleigh. I’ve been to 4 and can honestly say it’s been the best money ever spent and I hope to continue to attend ones in the future. She has created a safe and inclusive space that is nothing like I have ever experienced. We laugh, we cry, we eat, we dance and we yoga together. You are empowered to participate as much or as little as you want. I will leave each retreat with new friends that I can call upon when I need a shoulder to cry on or just to talk. If you are on the fence, Take the leap and sign up. You won’t regret it.
In May of 2019, I was battling 5 months of sadness that I felt would never end. I went to a weekend retreat with Taraleigh and by the end, my sadness had lifted and was replaced with a sense of hope and true happiness. The space that Taraleigh holds during these retreats is magical and carried back into my “real life” once I left. I felt safe sharing my emotions during her well thought out activities that were full of self reflection. Immediate bonds were made with the others attending the retreats. So many of these women I consider dear friends of mine to this day.
Her retreat changed my life for the better and I continue to hold that magic, her magic, in my heart to this day!
A retreat with Taraleigh is like a vacation with your fairy godmother guiding you through your adventures! I’ve gone on many of her retreats now, and each time it was to give myself a break from every day monotony, to inspire me, and to nourish my soul. Every time I leave with new friends and feeling fulfilled. I keep going back so I can be with my retreat friends and family, and so I can continue to try new things!
I’ve attended several of Taraleigh’s retreats and always have the most amazing time. Her playful, positive energy is wildly infectious in all the best ways. Not sure how she does it, but each time the group dynamic seems perfectly fitted for the retreat and you leave with awesome new friends from all over that you feel connected with on so many levels.
The activities from dance parties to yoga, and everything in between, are always well thought out and add such a delightful element, along with the breaks to go inward, if desired, and spend time on your own.
Meals & accommodations are also well planned. I’ve slept in super comfy beds and had some of the most delicious healthy, nourishing meals ever.
Although each retreat is different, all of them have filled my cup of joy to the fullest and strengthened my resolve to be the best version of myself, sharing my gifts, overcoming fears and living life to the absolute fullest. I’m excited to attend many more and highly recommend retreating with Taraleigh.
