In Lila is a content collective that touches upon beauty, love, and art, the essence of which can be found in the full expression of health, compassion, self-actualisation, and community. To this end, In Lila creates and curates content in various media, such as writing, visual art, and music, in order to create a space of sharing and education that honours the refinement of beauty, both physical and immaterial, in all aspects of life.
