~ Salt Spring Island Wholistic Retreat~ with Illia Paton

Connect with Nature and the healing begins… 

Enjoy pure water, fresh sea air and explore the natural surroundings.


Physical- Emotional- Mental- Spiritual:

This is the wholistic cornerstones of life.  Illia addresses the physical components first in an

Iridology Consultation 

Physical revitalization becomes the foundation to further healing. This includes nutrition, breath, stillness and addressing addictions.

From here emotion/trauma/stress which is held in the body (consciously or not) is brought to the forefront where it then may be released. This is done through a specific application of sustained acupressure. See link for details.

Wholistic Acupressure.

This is a one on one intensive with Illia. Occasionally Illia will accept two people together, if they are working in partnership.


You may choose ONE or TWO weeks of deep clearing and inner work facilitated by a minimum of three sessions per week.

If considering this, contact Illia to begin the preparation process. This is not for the faint of heart. This intensive is for those who have the willingness and tenacity to implement powerful change. This is the only requirement. Read through the following booklet written by Illia to learn more on the wholistic construct and how she includes this into her work.

Notes from participants-

 “Illia provides a nurturing and safe container in which I felt very supported to be open and vulnerable, enabling me to do some very deep and profound inner work. She is very gentle and communicative, and at the same time, carries a great power and fire to encourage one to explore their own personal limitations and shadow. I have attended several healing Intensives and worked in private sessions with Illia. I would recommend Illia to any being seeking support or direction in their journey of healing and awakening. She has been and still is a bright shining beacon along my own personal path.” Christopher Schroeder- Holistic Therapist-Kauai HI 

“Illia is very intuitive. She powerfully yet gently facilitates change. She has a gift for bringing truth to light and I found my experience at her wholistic intensive to be a sacred opportunity to change. Illia provides comfortable and serene accommodation, healthy food that revitalized me gently and profoundly. Each morning was spent sipping green drinks while discussing topics of importance.  I enjoyed the natural flow of Illia’s teaching as we enjoyed going for walks experiencing many natural wonders and flavours… including spontaneous meetings with the Eagles. When I arrived I was a frantic bundle of fear and as the week went on I was able to open and soften and release much that I was not even aware I was carrying. Since returning home I have been inspired and increasingly creative. If you are feeling the call to look within and nourish your body, mind and spirit I highly recommend attending one of Illia’s retreats on Salt Spring Island.” Rose Canino- Artist www.rosecanino.com
