Bodhilila has been meditating for over 30 years and loves how meditation can be such an ordinary part of daily life and at the same time a path of inner and outer transformation. She worked for many years as a classical musician (she plays viola) and has been Chair of the West London Buddhist Centre for the past few years. In-between she worked as a massage therapist and trainer, a counsellor, a primary school teacher and a nursery manager.

She trained with Breathworks as a mindfulness teacher and supervisor and has taught many courses in mindfulness-based pain management. Bodhilila regularly leads Dharma courses and retreats, both online and in person, including 5 week long meditation retreats which she recently co-led with Paramananda. She loves meditation, loves being on retreat and loves Taraloka!
