Christine studied for ten years on her own and then continued her development and techniques with Rev. Diana Friedell.  Christine currently works at Springbrook, and is enrolled in the Ministry Program at the Institute for Spiritual Development.

Susan Hintz-Epstein
Runes Readings

Susan welcomes those seeking a reading warmly, and introduces the Runes as symbols that have a continuity of almost 2,000 years for communicating with the metaphysical. A new client often likes to see a Rune, and questions are encouraged. The client is given the Rune bag to hold until she feels ready to begin the reading. Depending on the length of the reading she has chosen, she is asked either to reach into the bag to draw three to seven Runes, or the bag is handed back to the intuitive for a complete Rune Cast. The pattern of the reading varies with the questions the client has, and a complete Rune Cast can last from a half hour to an hour depending on the information provided. Each Rune holds its own variety of meaning in conjunction with those Runes that fall alongside it. The interpreter describes the meanings inherent within each Rune in the manner they fell, and this usually results in conversation with the client, who is encouraged to maintain a dialog with the reader for best interpretation. It is the nature of the Runes to answer what is most pertinent to the client at the time of the reading, and the Runes have often shed fresh light on problems. A three-Rune cast is great for yes-no-maybe types of questions, looking at two possible responses to one course of action, or past-present-future readings. The five-Rune cast considers all sides of a question, the seven-Rune cast becomes even more specific, and the full Rune Cast considers the span of the next year more or less.

Susan Hintz-Epstein (formerly Susan Laubmeier),  has been reading and working with the Runes since 2013. Susan has been a Reiki healer since 2004, a Reiki Master since 2006, and Gurdjieff student from 1987 to 2000. Susan holds a B.A. from SUNY Oneonta in Studio Art and Anthropology, which maybe contributes to her shamanist attitudes.
