I am able to answer questions regarding Scientology practices and procedures, religious philosophy, donations, religious rites, management, administrative and staff matters.
I am a second generation Scientologist whose parents began in Dianetics in 1950 and studied directly with L. Ron Hubbard. I have been personally active in the church for 44 years, have eleven years former staff experience in both technical and administrative areas, and extensive technical and administative training and counseling. I am "clear" and "OT." I come from an extended family of many religions, but my spouse and children are Scientologists, as are my siblings and their spouses, several cousins, nieces, nephews, an aunt, and an uncle. Between us we have had every good and bad experience one might go through in the church at every level.
International Association of Scientologists
Over six thousand hours of Scientology technical and administrative training. Fully qualified/certified for fourteen different organizational job descriptions. Ordained minister. Independent study of numerous religions.
As well as being a Scientologist, I have independently studied philosophy and comparative religion since 1968, reading the full publicly available scripture of more than one religion, some more than once. I love the sense of clarity and homogeniety that Scientology brings to this study.
I hope to use it to bring as much understanding as I can into my own life and the world around me.
Did you know that a council of thirteen Shinto Buddhist sects, some dating back over fourteen centuries, published a formal recognition of Scientology as a learned path and undertook to train a number of their monks in it around 1994? The current Holder of the Secrets of this council has a treatise about his own study of Scientology published on the web.
Scientologists were the first to uncover through the Freedom of Information Act and publish broadly the facts regarding secret psychiatric experimentation with psychotropic drugs on unsuspecting soldiers and civilians with U.S. military support beginning in the 1950's.
