Daring to be HAPPY with Lila B

Health & Wellness Podcasts

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. Hi, I’m your host, 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 found a way to be happy anyway. So what’s this show going to be all about? Every week, I’ll be interviewing some amazing people from around the world who all live pretty regular lives but have found a way to do it in an extraordinary way. 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 difference 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 was 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 it is that love which gives us unlimited power, unlimited potential and can dissolve 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.

Today I'm joined by Taraka, a meditation teacher from Singapore, who I have been blessed to spend the last few days of my trip with as she has shown me the sights of Singapore.

Tips for meditation when travelling

11/2/2017
This week's question come from Lily, who I just met at my guesthouse in Bali. She asks for some help or suggestions to make meditating easier when you are on the road. She typically uses guided meditation, which she finds easier than sitting in silence but often they aren’t available without wifi. Plus she finds if difficult to find time and space to be alone. Before I answer Lily’s question, I share a quick story about how I got physically assaulted by a monkey last weekend and he stole my...
