Taraleigh Weathers: Behind the Sparkle
The E True Hollywood Story
Hi! I’m Taraleigh and I’m obsessed with live music. Everything I do revolves around it. I even met my husband because of it. I totally get you and your obsession with all things jammy like how when you hear the word cheesecake it makes your heart sing a little or when you see someone driving next to you with a Grateful Dead sticker on their car you exchange smiles or how one the most exciting days of the year is when your favorite band announces their summer tour. Live music is what makes tick which is why I work with people who are in love with life music and want to keep the good feelings rolling when the festival’s over. Every single day is a gift…not just show day!
Because of this I have chosen to create and produce live music virtual and in-person events and retreats with a healthy twist. With the training and schooling I have received I’m now skilled at using my unicorn magic to guide you to rock your life. At my retreats I’ll show you how to take action to make that dream life a reality while living it in the present moment (Like in Iceland with Oteil Burbridge or in Costa Rica with Ryan Montbleau).
People who have attended in-person and virtual retreats with me in the past have opened themselves up to the magic happening all around them in every moment, became a part of a new soul family, got to experience intimate and personal concerts from their favorite musicians, let things go that were holding them back, took steps towards that thing they’ve been meaning to do, manifested thousands of concert tickets and backstage passes to meet their favorite musicians, being able to pay their rent with ease doing something they love that is of service to the world, having the means to hire coaches, massage therapists and household help, the ability to give big to charities and being able to support local artists, clothing designers, restaurants, farmers, plumbers and wine makers with the money they earned with integrity. They started to live their lives as if it was a festival.
What people are saying about me:
“I highly recommend being a part of Taraleigh’s tribe. Unparalleled fun, magic and playful breakthroughs.”
“I went from feeling like I was incapable of ever feeling at peace inside, to thinking that it was possible, but would probably take a really long time, to realizing I better make it happen immediately after watching a small bunch of people close to me die very young. When you have that fire under your ass, other people who have that same fire stick out to you. We might as well have our foreheads painted with some distinguishing mark. By the way, if you haven’t met her yet, Taraleigh has a huge sequined, sparkly mark on her forehead. Actually it’s probably a full blown headdress. You can’t miss her.

Want to know more about me? I’m obsessed with live music. You might even say I am a live music addict. When I’m at a show I experience so much joy. I let loose and dance my heart out like everyone’s watching, but I don’t care. I surround myself with new and old friends. I can be found in the crowd yelling “woo,” fist pumping, spinning in circles, performing high kicks, busting out the running man, bopping my head, dressed head to toe in sparkles and feathers while giving and receiving as many hugs as I possibly can. I smile so much my face muscles feel sore the next day.
The thing is, I know you want to be happy.
Not the kind of happy where you say one thing, but do something else. Not putting on the dress you know you doesn’t fit right and telling yourself you look good anyway. Not the kind of happy that wears a mask to hide what’s really going on underneath it.
I’m talking about the real stuff.
I’m talking about being unable to control the urge to jump out of your bed to start your day, strutting your fine ass down the street, shining so bright everyone can’t help but notice, and smiling with your entire body kind of stuff.
You might think I’m one of those people who just came out happy, but actually I spent most of my life afraid to speak up and share my truth. When I was in second grade I was really shy. In my class it was a huge honor to be the person to lead the pledge of allegiance. I wanted to raise my hand and ask to lead it so bad, but each day I would chicken out. By the end of the school year, I decided it was my time. I was going to lead the pledge. When I woke up, I put on my favorite outfit, ate breakfast, brushed my teeth, kissed my parent’s goodbye and went to the bus stop. While on the bus I sat by myself and gave myself a pep talk. When I got to school, I sat and patiently waited for pledge time.
I raised my hand and my teacher called on me. I saw everyone looking at me and I panicked and pulled my hand down as fast as I could while sinking lower and lower into my seat.
She asked, “Tara, what do you want?”
I mumbled in my quietest voice making myself smaller and smaller by the second, “I want to lead the pledge.” She couldn’t hear me and started screaming at me. The kids in my class started laughing at me. The teacher put my name on the board–the ultimate shame. I was so embarrassed. I came up with a bunch of “truths” that day, which I believed for years. I thought if I spoke up I would get laughed at. I decided I was dumb and shouldn’t speak up again. I decided the spotlight was a scary place to be. I believed if I spoke up I would get in trouble. I thought no one wanted to hear what I had to say.
These “truths” affected my life in bigger and bigger ways. Every time I had to speak in public I would literally make myself sick, even on the night before my wedding. If someone brought attention to me in public, I would literally try to hide. It was bad.
So I decided to take domain over my brain with some help from a good friend. I decided to forgive the little one inside of me who believed she shouldn’t speak up. I began to create some new truths.
“I’m smart and have important things to say.”
“If I believe in what I’m saying it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.”
“I was meant to shine just like everyone else.”
“I just want to have fun!”
To seal the deal of my new truths, I went to a second grade class and shared my story with the kids. I saw myself in each of their innocent little eyes. I saw how amazing their little souls were. I realized how amazing my own soul is. Since talking to the kids and writing out my new truths, I have been speaking out in all kinds of ways including talk to you right now!
Do you have a second grader inside of you still upset about not speaking up? Or a 7th grader who didn’t get asked to the dance? Or who got picked on, bullied… etc. It’s time to give that little one who still lives within you your love and acknowledge that some bad stuff has happened along their journey. I’m not about putting sparkles on top of poop. I’ll teach you so much more in about how to deal with your stuff, so you can truly get what you want and love your life.
