Wild Lily Vision

The Wild Lily Institute was founded in 2005 as the Emily Isaacson Institute and re-named in 2016. We are located in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada.


Wild Lily is dedicated to the tradition and ways of the natural earth with a holistic vision, directed by founder Emily Isaacson.


The furthering of youth through the arts involves creativity. The Institute emphasizes first the creation of art and literature; second, the distribution of literature; third, research and development. We participate in, as well as offer nutrition education for community development. We believe that everyone should have access to nutrition education, regardless of gender, income, or social status.


Restorative justice is a mentality, a set of principles and values. Isaacson has trained in restorative justice in both Mission and Abbotsford, and teaches others on the road of reparation using circle keeping.  


The Wild Lily Institute funds both research and education, offering a nutrition clinic in the community, as well as talks and seminars for nutrition education. We sell non-fiction books by our director to raise funds, but have need to raise enough to fund several major restorative projects, including a location to house the institute. We also keep our staff on salary which is funded by grants, loans, and community donations. Our publishing and distribution efforts are funded in their entirety by WLI. Please donate by giving to our community and academic-centered advancement.
