  • Are you craving a little magic in your creative life?
  • Have you tried writing and just can’t seem to get past the first few lines or pages?
  • Do you desire a community of supportive artsy folks to help cheer you on to write your masterpiece?

Magic Maker Taraleigh Weathers, NY Times Best Selling Author and Book Coach Suzanne Boothby and Singer/Songwriter Ryan Monbleau invite you to join us at the Berkshire Mountains Writers’ Retreat where you will find your truth through writing.

This retreat is for nine songwriters and nine book writers. As writers ourselves we sometimes feel stuck. Writing is a solitary act and it can be very common to feel alone in the creative process.  At this retreat you will be in a community of writers just like you and surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful nature.  We will break new creative ground in an environment of fun, sharing, and learning.

Hi everyone! Taraleigh here. My soul sister Suzanne Boothby (^^) is my personal book coach. She helped bring my ideas to life for my new book The Sweet Ass Self-Help Book and when she told me that she was interested in doing a writers’ retreat, I knew we had to partner up. Then my soul brother Ryan Montbleau mentioned to me how much he loved teaching songwriting and the light bulb went off.


I thought, “How amazing would it be to do a retreat where half the people are there for songs and music and the other half for books and essays?” Everyone participates in activities all together and experiences small breakout sessions with their specialized coach. Each person receives an in-depth one-on-one with their coach. We all eat high vibrational organic local delicious food. Nature surrounds us with its inspiring beauty. Everyone has the option of participating in yoga, meditation and movements classes. Ryan plays his guitar and sings his beautifully written songs to us. And everyone has plenty of free time to write and connect with nature.”

…and so it was born.

You exhale and all your stresses and worries get left behind. You check in with Taraleigh and get settled into your room. After that, you will have some time to get acquainted with your beautiful surroundings, meet other writers, go for a walk and maybe you’ll even spend some time in the wood-fired sauna.

What others are saying about retreats with Taraleigh, Ryan and Suzanne

I’ve had the privilege of attending two very different retreats, both hosted by Taraleigh and distinct mentors. The first retreat was in Ohio, where our Rock Your Life Mentorship group got together after completing a four month program beautiful self-development, empowerment and growth with each other. The second retreat was in Costa Rica, where 25 strangers came together for the greater good of the world and themselves. Though each retreat had its own agenda, both were amazing. They really helped me with my personal development and awareness. I found that after both retreats, I was catapulted into the next level of my life. I was able to tackle things that I have been too afraid to face on my own. The retreats gave me that confidence to push forward as well as having a beautiful support system, free of judgment and negativity. They are my unicorn tribe. I highly recommend for everyone to go on a retreat, not just for your self-care, but also for your self-discovery. Find yourself. Get uncomfortable. Step out of your comfort zone and discovery the amazing rockstar that lives within YOU!

Dee Sepulveda attendee of Rock Your Life Retreats Cleveland and Costa Rica

I have been fortunate enough to attend two Rock Your Life retreats with Taraleigh and Ryan, the first two they hosted though no one would have known that. The level of skill and ease these two talented people ‘brought to the party’ was profound. My life was changed; and I witnessed both groups of strangers who arrived at the retreats leaving as friends who had shared more with each other than most had ever shared with their families.”

R. Grace Comyns attendee of Two Rock Your Life Retreats in Vermont

I was so amazed at how much work I completed at my last retreat with Taraleigh and Suzanne. Originally, I was thinking the retreat was really a social opportunity, but it was way beyond that. I felt so nurtured during my stay, thanks to the the food, the group time, and the alone time, which proved to be something I was really missing. The community of people at the retreat listened to my writing struggles and helped me come up with very tangible ideas that I was able to put into action immediately. The group helped me re-frame my thoughts around communicating with my own community, and learning that was invaluable.

Christine Egan, attendee of Soul Tribe Retreat for Entrepreneurs

I attended a retreat last year with Taraleigh and Suzanne as co facilitators and it was an incredible experience. Having their combined experience and completely different styles of energy was refreshing. It was so nice to see the truest of collaboration and reap the benefit of what they offered individually and collectively. I loved the positivity, the reality, the sense of support and the pushing beyond my perceived limitations. Taraleigh and Suzanne created such a safe and loving environment which fostered a LOT of personal growth. My biggest takeaway from that retreat was that I am free to pursue my dreams, and carry my heart centered business out into the world! Spending time with wonderful role models is so much fun and inspiring!!!

Sarah Richardson attendee of Soul Tribe Retreat for Entrepreneurs 

Joining Taraleigh and Ryan in Costa Rica was incredible; the perfect mix of love, music and paradise. They made every effort to ensure my comfort with the arrangements leading up to the retreat, including committing to going, and throughout the experience. Workshops were enjoyable–inspiring, spiritually challenging and certainly life altering!

Katie Wilson attendee of Rock Your Life Retreat Costa Rica

My time with Taraleigh and Ryan was transformational to say the least. They helped me and a bunch of other beautiful people see ourselves for who we truly are. It was magical. And, there was music! I’d do it again in a heart beat.
