Günther Völler Public Scientologist
13 November 2013
My name is Günther Völler. I became a member of the Church of Scientology in 1987 at Bern Org, later at Zurich Org, Switzerland.
From the very first moment, I developed an intense interest in reading, studying, learning and applying the teachings of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard.
I wanted to go up The Bridge, and I wanted to help others do so as well.
Throughout the years, I have taken many courses and received a lot of auditing, becoming a Class IV auditor, Ethics Specialist, a graduate of the PTS/SP course,Volunteer Minister, and also completed the Basics Books and Lectures.
I am on New OT VII, a Patron of the IAS, and a contributor to Basel/Zurich-Org , libraries.
I have learned much and I have great gains from my involvement with Scientology. I have the utmost respect and gratitude to LRH, and to all the staff across the globe that selflessly dedicate their lives to help others, and the many devoted public who have helped so much.
I am first and foremost a Scientologist; i.e.:
“One who betters the conditions of himself and the conditions of others by using Scientology technology.” LRH, Aud 73.
I have made it a practice to adopt stable data as I learned them in Scientology and found them to be workable and true. One Stable datum I adopted early on from The Code of Honor is:
“Never compromise with your own reality.”
Another one, is : “Look, don’t listen.”
I took these and many other data to heart and I used them as guide posts in my life every day.
“WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU is what you have observed yourself.
And when you lose that, you have lost everything.
What is personal integrity?
Personal integrity is knowing what you know
…And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed.
… And sufficient personal belief and confidence in self
And courage that we can observe what we observe
And say what we have observed.
Nothing in Dianetics and Scientology is true for you
Unless you have observed it
And it is true according to your observation.
That is all” Ability, Issue 125 February 1961(Tech Vol. VI, p. 23)
In following the above I must state I have found Scientology to be true. I have found LRH to speak the truth. I have also found to be true that from current and former members of our church, telling a sad tale of abuse, alteration and misapplication of the Tech, heavy-handed ethics, malfeasance, lies, out-ethics, extortion, blackmail, harassment, enforced realities and just plain viciousness.

I want to let you know a very special Scientology biography has been completed and now available.
Yvonne Gillham Jentzsch, founder of Scientology’s Celebrity Centres, was born October 20, 1927. This year her birthday is being celebrated by the release of her in-depth biography. The research for the story of her life took over seventeen months and resulted in a piece of work which contains over thirty one thousand words and one hundred fifty five pictures.(dozens of which have never been published before)
Many people who knew and interacted with Yvonne contributed their firsthand knowledge to this story and as such, her biography documents events in the history of Scientology in a unique way.
From her early Field and Dissemination activities with her husband Peter Gillham in Australia in the 1950’s – to her family’s migration to England to escape government suppression and to further her auditor training on the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course (SHSBC) – to being one of the first Sea Org members – serving as LRH’s steward in Las Palmas in the Canary Islands – to the creation of the first Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles – and her too-early illness and death at the age of 50 – The story of “Yvonne” (as she has forever been known) reveals details about the history of Scientology which have never been published anywhere.
Information about her family and the people who knew her were gathered from first-hand accounts and archival material. This extensive research has resulted in an unprecedented document Scientologists, interested persons and historians will use as a basis for further study and documentation of the world’s most vital movement.
Look for additional biography’s to be forthcoming on this amazing collaborative platform which was designed specifically for the purpose of being a special repository of the rich history of Scientology, the great people who built it and the legacy of L Ron Hubbard’s invaluable contribution to the advancement of the human condition.
For those who have documentary contributions to this and other biographies, your input is not only welcome but very much needed and wanted. A very simple system has been established for you to send in information and pictures via secure email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your privacy will be respected and contributions given attribution only upon your express permission.
The biography of Yvonne Gillham Jentzsch marks a milestone for us. It will set the standard henceforth to let the truth be known about the incredible people who spearheaded Ron’s push to bring a new civilization to earth.
We think it is fitting Yvonne’s story leads the way and hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have enjoyed the research.
You can read the full biography here.

Hello to you all,
I am Wendy Bowman, one of the Jo’burg 18 who have been cast aside as an “untouchable”!
Little do they know the joy in our hearts that we are experiencing to be free to think, do and express how we feel without the shackles of the church limiting all.
Luckily I decided some time ago to operate independently.
With the help of some wonderful terminals that I have found outside the church who have given me the most incredible encouragement, validation and guidance, I have gotten myself back in the chair after 25 years absence and suppression of my ability, and am having the most remarkable wins as an auditor, and my pc’s wins are spectacular.
It is a joy to be winning in my newly created theta environment with such wonderful friends and family around me.
As some of you may already know, for a long time now I have been deeply concerned that LRH’s Tech and Policy has been steadily degraded and altered as the years go by. All reports I have made up to RTC have been ignored.
And for those who are still in doubt, you have to ask yourself ‘How come this is being allowed?’
Like so many others before me, it was the dreadful things that those within the church were doing that made me go into doubt; and then the revelation came, via the net, that I was not alone and that so much worse has been happening than I had ever imagined, and once I discovered that it gave me the courage to make the break and search for a satisfactory future SCN path for me and those I love.
That being said, here is my story: Read the rest of this entry »
In the last few days we have come to an end and a beginning.
In 1964 Ernest bought a copy of DMSMH and never read it. In 1971 after we got married we were moving house and while repacking books, I saw the copy of Dianetics Ernest had bought all those years prior. I sat down and read it, start to finish. I insisted that we find somewhere to get Dianetics auditing. I had been unable to fall pregnant and I felt Dianetics and the auditing described in it would address this issue. We found the local org in Durban which neither of us liked it very much, it seemed a little weird the way the staff stared at us. We looked a little more and some months later we found the Jory Mission in Durban. After doing 100 hours of TR 0 the mission reg, George Southworth, suggested I get 25 hours of auditing.
Neville Jory (bless his soul) audited me for 25 hours, after which he asked how I felt. I said I hadn’t handled what I wanted handled, namely to fall pregnant. Neville immediately re-credited my 25 hours and we continued. During this second batch of auditing I fell pregnant. After hearing that I had gone back track, Ernest demanded his own auditing!
Since then we have never stopped. We have always been involved, always looking for ways to forward Scientology and to help others. We have always been connected to orgs.
In 1976 I went Clear on the Apollo with David Mayo as C/S. Ernest was the first public at Flag after their move from the ship to Daytona Beach. I joined him there later and we both had L 10 personally C/S’d by LRH . I was then fortunate enough to have another 4 pilot rundowns delivered to me, again C/S’d by David Mayo and LRH. Ernest was asked to go on a mission to NY to promote the Ls and talked to hundreds of people at different booming missions in NY.
After returning from Flag we joined staff. I became the ED and Ernest was the HES. In 1979 Jens Bogvat arrived on a mission and declared Ernest and removed me as the ED. Read the rest of this entry »
Phil Spickler – Class VIII Auditor Is Answering the Questions that Russians Asked about Scientology
To whom it may concern. Success Story.
Today I have attested an achievement of a new state of being – I am CLEAR. :)
And you know, what I like the most about this state? That finally I can evaluate myself out of liability on the first Dynamic where body, mind and spirit were liability to each other – all not knowing their posts, not having good communication within, from there into the state of a new-born spiritual being happily doing (I will rename it accordingly to my perception of it) new-existence steps.
There is a peace at home – within me, as I have a clear understanding, new state of awareness of who I am in regard to my body , mind and spirit. I am not only at cause and in-charge, as a spirit, but in high ARC with my mind and body. That makes me organized into a one happy team, where mind and body know and respect the captain, who in my turn knows who it is, where it is going able to lead the team, and DESERVES to be respected by the other team players – the smaller selves. When I as a spirit make now a postulate regarding my 1 dynamic, it is not getting bogged in doubt of questioning, or argued and fought by my mind or GE soul, or lost in the confusion of not knowing – who is to listen to whom and where, and who suppose to do what. It was not a fun game to play at that lower 1D Ethics condition, believe me. But now the light is on! )))) I would describe my state of awareness as a new viewpoint as a spirit, that is aware of its true nature enough to have a clear view. I see myself (spirit) my team – mind and body and reactive mind (!) (never planned to get read of that not so bright, but honest and courageous creature within me :))), and world around with a clarity that makes it easy to make and execute Ethical decisions. It feels natural, I am back home where things are in places, tools aren’t flying around the room, team is trained and I am ready to operate freely on a first Dynamic and actually already do. ))))
The Dianetics Certainty Special Intensive helped me to connect the dots and to get the overall picture of my state “into focus” so I have a greater certainty on my new state.
There is so much more to say if I wanted to really make it visible to you – my STORY of success. Because it is not a one time jump from “black” to “white” becoming a Clear. It really is a gradual increase of awareness, accordingly to in-life action to deserve the awareness progress. It really is a journey, a lot of things I did and made in and out of session that ether slowed me down or speeded up, distracted or brought back onto the path toward the state achieved. There are so many beings that supported and helped me on my birth into existence as a Clear, starting with a previous human representation of me who got cleared in my last life time – boy, he deserves a lot of credit! I was flying through rehabing lots of cognitions on touch and by inspection, that he worked hard for to gain. I have to thank my parents and teachers, all people I was learning from – good and bad, smart and not so much, high and low tone – they all helped me to get here where I am. Of course my special thanks to Ron Hubbard for providing the Tech, to David Mayo who really wanted to help and did a lot helping me too, Phil Spickler who provided the wisdom that brought joy and smoothness to my ride. I thank all my auditors, starting with a first book 1 auditor Larisa, all auditors I had in the church and out – Misha Priv and Dexter Gelfand (Grage 1), Marty Rathbun (Grade 2 FPRD style), Rey Robles (Grade 3 & 4), Dexter Gelfand (Presence 4), Ron Fitch (Life Repair & DCSI).
To me the most life changing gains and wins where on Objectives, Help part of the Grade 1 and most of all – Grade 2 (!) – after that level I went Clear as the mechanism holding the Bank in place – “motivating” me into holding it there – vanished, I exteriorized from it first and then from the body and got suddenly interested in how it was doing and by what rules it was operating. I started to learn about the food etc… The ARC with body went up. Then I was dancing around the condition I was in not been fully aware, having not enough clarity about the state. Something there were remaining unclear. Presence 4 Identity handling was a huge step forward, as I experienced a split from the GE soul – animal like greedy creature fighting for its own survival by any means (!!!), and me – spirit that wants to live by sense of ethics and not caring too much about survival. Those two splat apart and ARC was immediately created and started to grow between me and GE.
I can not say enough good words about my last auditor – Ron Fitch. He is just AWSOME! His ability of creating a space for you to fill it in with itsa and his understanding is encreadable.
My special thanks to Valery, for being here and holding together the org– making the delivery of Tech possible.
Love you all,
Tatiana Baklanova, Clear.
I sould also mention the Ethics help from Mary Freeman that brought me back on the Bridge from which I felt. And the C/S help of Dan Koon that really made it possible to get started in the field. Thank you all!!!! :))))
How Scientology knows all about you
Scientology Inc obsessively files everything. Every report, every Ethics “chit”
every accusation, every disciplinary action and there are plenty of those.
All filed away. But their fatal flaw is using it against you once you depart.
1) Scientology Is NOT a Religion!
2) The Laws of Returning and Present Time
3) Scientology Is NOT a Faith and Belief System

My 26 years in the Sea Org
|Carol Nyburg (Vedder) at Flag|
On November 3rd, 1982, I arrived at Flag to join the Sea Organization. I was met at the front door by none other than Wayne Baumgarten. That is how long I have known Wayne. He was, at the time, in charge of all the new recruits. I arrived with my 1 year old daughter, Nancy. No one was more excited than me to be at Flag and to be in the SO. I didn’t care what post I got I just wanted to do my part in helping the Planet be a better place to be.
My main reasons for joining this group besides helping the Planet were I felt I would be better understood and I wanted my daughter to be in a drug free environment.
I lived where all the families and people with children lived. It was an old Quality Inn Motel. I had my room and lived there for 20 years. My children grew up there! In 1984, I remarried and had a son while in the SO. I had a car and we drove in to work each day. We started at 9 am. We came home for family time every night between 5:30 pm and 8 pm. These were great times. There was a pool and Florida gets really hot. The pool was always filled with staff and kids, plus if you had a car, you could go shopping, go out to eat or just spend time with the kids playing and sometimes I took a little nap. I always felt great when I went back to post. It was the ideal break in the day. Then most of us worked till about midnight. Course as a young mother, I had to take care of the kids and be up with them in the night and all the things a mother endures. Our meals were prepared for us. So I had two meals at the QI and lunch at the Flag Base at this time. I had a mini kitchen in my room, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot and I put in little cupboards. I really made a cute space and it felt like home. I did everything I could to create a homey and fun environment for my kids.
I had my car at work, so if I needed things I went and handled at my lunch time, plus I would go shopping after work. No one was watching my every move. I was trusted and trustworthy. After all I was a Flag staff member, regarded as the very top group besides the staff of international management. I had fun and really enjoyed these days. If your statistics were up, one could get a liberty every two weeks. I got them often and really made the most of these times, sometimes taking off on Friday night and going to Orlando to spend Saturday, and be back on post by Sunday morning.
