Ilona Selke was born in the Himalayas and raised the first three years in Afghanistan speaking Persian and then raised in Germany. She moved to the U.S. at age 20 for her studies in philosophy when she met her husband Don Paris, Ph.D.
She continued her studies of body-centered psychotherapy, Hakomi, Holodynamics, Radionics and alternative healing when they moved to Boulder Colorado, and later to their home on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
Ilona and her husband are co-founders and directors of Living From Vision®, an institute for personal growth, multi-dimensional development of awareness, and spiritual relationships. The course Living from Vision® has been translated into German, French, Spanish, Chinese and Czechoslovakian, and is being taught worldwide. They divided their time between their island homes, one in the Pacific Northwest and the other on Bali by their Retreat Center Shambala.
Since 1991 Ilona Selke and Don Paris have studied the lives of dolphins in their natural habitats throughout the world. Through their natural skills, dolphins exchanged telepathic messages with her that form the basis for her book, Wisdom of the Dolphins and her third book Dolphins, Love & Destiny. Both books tell us about inspiring adventures about dolphins and their key message to humanity: Using our imagination to build a better world.
Ilona Selke has been loved for her inspiration and practical solutions to spiritualizing one’s life and has appeared on TV and in Radio Interviews worldwide.
