Holy poop emoji! I wrote a book.

When I cry tears of joy, I say that I’m leaking awesome. You’ve made me leak so much awesome in the past two days since I started taking pre-orders for my book How to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday Experience. So much so, that I’ve had to up my water drinking game because I’ve become so dehydrated from all the leaking. Thank you for making me leak. <3 <3 <3 

Every time I see that a new order for a book has come in, I shriek. And I shriek with A LOT of enthusiasm. EVERY SINGLE TIME. My husband loves it. So far, I’ve shrieked over fifty times!! Good thing I’m at This Wonderful Place and we don’t have any neighbors nearby.

 It’s the same feeling I get when Ryan Montbleau and I are doing a retreat together and he’s performing one of my favorite songs and I yell, “Play it again,” and he says, “OK” and starts to play it again and I get really excited because all of my dreams are coming true and I shriek. He’s usually messing with me and doesn’t actually play the song, but that’s besides the point. It’s the same shriek none-the-less. Lol! 

I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has caused me to shriek enthusiastically so far. You’re all amazing and I feel so supported. Oops. Some awesome just leaked onto my computer keyboard. 

Somethings you might not know about the book: Dead & Company Bassist OTEIL BURBRIDGE wrote the foreword. Umphrey McGee’s Keyboardist JOEL CUMMINS, The Baker’s Secret Author STEPHEN KIERNAN and Singer/Songwriter Extraordinaire RYAN MONTBLEAU all share personal stories. I have a strong inkling that you’re going to leak some awesome and shriek after reading those contributions. While you’re crying and shrieking, you can listen to the playlists that I’ve compiled to go along with each chapter.

 There’s a limited number of signed copies available and they’re going super fast, so get yours today so you don’t have to leak awesome because you’re feeling sad instead of happy.

Here’s a video of me freakin out when I first got my hands on the book. Warning: There’s shrieking. 

About the book:

How to Rock Your Life is the book the author wished existed when she was suffering from a chronic case of post-show blues. Beating them with a rainstick, a hack-sack, and a big boatload of intentional life changes, she knew she had to share what she learned.

If you’re a live music fanatic, you’ll go anywhere the music is playing for just one more taste of the good stuff. Is it possible to bring that live music magic home with you? It is, and Taraleigh Weathers will show you the way.

Filled with entertaining, laugh-out-loud, inspiring, and vulnerable stories, been-there-done that advice, playful exercises, and many references to Phish and the Grateful Dead, How to Rock Your Life will guide you to maintain the live music magic in your everyday experience.

Just like you do when your favorite band is performing, Taraleigh will show you how you can channel the wildest expression of your authentic self on a daily basis, feel those unique music festival feels at home, and find the magic in even the most mundane and uncomfortable of situations. She’ll prove to you that is is indeed possible to surrender to the flow of the present moment before, during, and after the show.

“The creative power of intention, visualization, prayer, hoping, loving, listening, letting go, being honest with yourself, curiosity, openness, patience, action, quietude, and forgiveness is boundless. Taraleigh sees this so clearly and teaches it in this book.”

~OTEIL BURBRIDGE Dead & Company/Bassist

“The stories and advice from Taraleigh and her collaborators in ‘How to Rock Your Life’ will fill you with laughter, emotion, and encouragement. Her book truly embodies what she stands for as a person and will inspire anyone who reads it.”

~RYAN DEMPSEY Twiddle/Keyboardist

“Tarleigh radiates positive energy, and a sense of wonder while embracing the endless possibilities each new day brings!”

~JAY BLAKESBERG Long time photographer of the Grateful Dead and Author of Hippie Chick
