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.  

Emily Isaacson is the author of a children's book called Little Bird's Song, as well as twelve poetry books. The collections of the select poetry of Emily Isaacson can be purchased on this site. To learn more about Emily's postmodern poetry that shaped the Wild Lily Institute, visit our literature page.

Emily Isaacson served as a professional photographer of British Columbia (PPABC) from 2010-2012. She exhibited in 2010 at the Mission Arts Centre. There she spent three years on the board of directors of the Mission Arts Council (2007-10).
