Our philosophy is one of mutual respect and honor for all. The desire to live with feelings of joy, heart and soul is deep within each of us. We believe in connecting with our internal wisdom and listening which enables us to feel good for ourselves, our family, community and planet.
Our farm practices are one with the earth. We grow, harvest, and process herbs with the utmost respect for each plant. After each growing season the soil is replenished with our own compost using various local sources, including grass clippings, manure, seaweeds, and other organic matter. Some of plants used for our products aren’t grown in our lovely labyrinth. They are plentiful in the wild, so we ethically wild-craft from the islands. Herbal plants have been used for varying conditions for thousands of years. We gratefully share our knowledge and passion with each of you and wish for you love, peace, joy and harmony from from Whispers of Nature.
Whispers of Nature, LLC, was founded in 2006, by Susie and Nick Teague after moving to Lopez Island, WA. They chose to move away from mainland “America” and to change their lifestyle, creating a more simplistic way of living for themselves.
Susie’s passion has always been to help others to heal. From the time she can remember, she has wanted to become a “doctor” (child way of understanding “healing”). She also felt connections in her grandma’s backyard garden as she dug deep in the soil and connected with the earth, which sparked her interest in plants and herbs. Susie holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Therapeutic Recreation and has been in the helping profession in various capacities for 20 years. In 2015 she chose the fast track of studying with Dr. Bentz and Dr. Phillips to be a Proficient Academy Member for Neurological System Integration (NIS). She is in her second year of practice as an NIS Practitioner, and also practices as a Master Reiki Practitioner.
Nick’s passion is for life itself! He demonstrates love and light in everything he chooses to endeavor. He shows a deep respect to all of humanity. Motivating others to achieve to their fullest potential is the force behind his light. Nick’s childhood memory of a park ranger in uniform deep in the forest talking with him and his family influenced him in pursuing his career. Nick holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Outdoor Recreation. He is a “Leave No Trace” Expert and a Reiki Practitioner. Most of his adult experience has been working in forests and wilderness, bringing children, youth, adults and elders opportunities for learning, experiencing, and working in nature.
