Meet Lila B

I'm Lila B, and yes, I really am a modern day monk, but to be honest I'm not all that different from you. I'm still subjected to the chaos that's part of a busy life + world, I'm far from perfect and I've got plenty of issues - but I've chosen to be happy anyway.
So what’s this show all about? Every week I interview some amazing people from around the world who all living pretty ordinary lives but in extraordinary ways, proving that it is possible to live a peaceful, calm, contented, joyful life, regardless of what chaos is going on around you, or how it may look from the outside and Proving that you can change your relationship with your mind.
As a meditation teacher I'll also be sharing how my personal meditation practice is making a different in my life and opening up for questions from listeners to help support you with your meditation practice.
It’s my hope that through this podcast, I can inspire you to connect to a lighter and brighter version of yourself.
To discover your inner power, inner voice, inner courage. To learn that true strength lies in being vulnerable, in letting go of past stories and conditioning and trusting fully in your own uniqueness.
My life's journey has been about overcoming that dreaded sense of failure, the sense that there was something wrong with me, the sense that being different is bad. It’s also been about overcoming trauma, overcoming the greatest pain that comes from losing the love of your life and about coming through grief.
What I’ve learned is that our greatest growth comes from leaning into the uncomfortable parts in order to come out the other side shining. Learning that we can resist and live in pain or be momentarily uncomfortable and find freedom.
The tool which can get us there the most directly is meditation. Meditation allows us to discover peace, calm, & stillness. Meditation brings us closer to the truth of who we really are. It gently and easily dissolves the masks and armour we’ve been wearing to protect ourselves from the world. It allows our uniqueness to shine through and happiness to explode from our hearts.
Trusting our truth and self-worth comes when we discover that love is infinite and that that love gives us unlimited power, unlimited potential and dissolves all form of suffering.
This has the ability to transform our relationships, sex, money, career, creativity + health. And these are the themes I’m so looking forward to exploring and sharing with you all.
Thanks for being here and welcome to Daring to be happy with Lila B!
