Welcome to Daring to be Happy with Lila B

The podcast that invites you to show up, play big, be courageous and inspire you that through meditation you CAN find peace and live happy.

DARING TO BE HAPPY exists in the hope that it inspires 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.


The tool which can get you 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 your uniqueness to shine through and happiness to explode from your heart.
