Emily Isaacson

Writer and poet

Emily Isaacson is a Canadian poet, who wrote The Fleur-de-lis in three volumes. Isaacson has always been a people watcher, and felt that her most valued perceptions were sharpened by the astute observation of people and their behaviours. She remembers being as young as four, sitting on the sidewalk and watching the world pass by. Isaacson’s poetry reads like a novel with insight and detail into the prayer life of a deeply spiritual lifestyle. She is a long-time friend of the nuns of Poor Clare, to whom one of her books is dedicated.  They, as a community, have read her poetry before its publication, and are in full support of her endeavors. Their convent is located in Mission, on cemetery road, and is founded after the order of St. Clare of Assisi. 

Isaacson does readings frequently. She draws from all walks of life to create and has herself walked a difficult road of reparation. In her books, she imparts forgiveness, humility, and justice. This is the essence of conflict resolution. It was this neutrality she fostered by her patient observations of humanity, animals, and nature. She has now published over 15 books, has over 100 videos on YouTube on her poetry and art, with 2 million visits to her sites.

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 are funded by grants, loans, and community donations. Our publishing efforts are funded in their entirety by WLI. Please donate by giving to our community and academic-centered advancement.
