The two greatest crimes that can be committed with Scientology technology are the two “shuns” – evaluation and invalidation. In numerous references, LRH explicitly details the destructive effects of evaluating for a person (telling him what to think about his case) or invalidating a person’s case or gains.
In fact, invalidation is so powerful that in HCO PL 25 June 72, RECOVERING STUDENTS AND PCs, LRH states that “invalidation of case or gains” is one of only four things that will cause a preclear to blow Scientology entirely. I am quite sure that if you are reading this, you have witnessed at least one example of someone leaving Scientology over this kind of invalidation.
Scientology sets itself apart from psychology and psychiatry specifically over these two “shuns.” Nothing is more reviled in an auditor than to tell a preclear what is wrong with him or to tell him that he hasn’t had a win or gain when he has indeed had it. Yet if you look just beyond the auditing room, isn’t that exactly what is occurring right now internationally in the Church of Scientology?
I am writing this post because I want to document in crystal clear terms that the invalidation of your case going on in Scientology is not an accident, nor is it something new.
Since May 1996, invalidation of technical gains and skills has been the defining characteristic of David Miscavige’s technical “breakthroughs.” In case this is not clear, let me walk you through a brief time track of Miscavige’s “discoveries” and “breakthroughs” so you have the fuller picture of what has been going on:
In 1996, with the release of the Golden Age of Tech, we were told by Miscavige that auditors were not perfect and LRH wanted nothing less than perfect auditors. The references backing up this assertion were taken out of context from Class VIII training materials. Of course by the time a person has achieved Class VIII status, the standard for their auditing is perfection. But you are never going to make a Class 0 auditor that way. LRH himself explained this in detail in HCO PL 24 Sept 64, INSTRUCTION AND EXAMINATION: RAISING THE STANDARD OF. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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.
Phil Spickler is a class VIII auditor from 1952, working with Ron. In March 5th he will be 82 years young. :)
Please, stop by at his website “From Stanford With Love” to read his articles, see more videos, to comment or to just say hello to a friend that he is been to us.
Part 1: Phil talks about Dianetics – what it does for people and particularly what it did to Phil himself.
Part 2: Phil shares his views on a famous Policy Letter “Keeping Scientology Working”.
Part 3: What is wrong with religions? – Phil raises the question in this last part of the video.
‘My days are numbered…’ – said Phil Spickler ( Scientology veteran, class VIII auditor, Mission holder, who knew Ron well and worked with him) – in his last video, that was not ordinary. Could be because we met just after Phil got home from playing tennis with a twice younger body pro, could be not, but that day Phil had chosen not to be as diplomatic and polite as he usually is. He got really angry and you will know why if you watch the whole video through to the end… I highly recommend. (TB)

Предлагаю вниманию русскоязычных читателей перевод недавней статьи независимого саентолога Marty Rathbun, под названием “Как Изучать Саентологию”. Я перевела ее для знакомства, чтобы у Вас была возможность получить реальность о Независимых Саентологах Америки. Марти был когда то “правой рукой” Мицкевича, но покинул церковь в 2004 году. Он живет в Техасе со своей женой, которую встретил уже уйдя из церкви (проодитировал ее до Клира и обучил на одитора). Марти одитирует – это его основная работа. Я знаю Марти лично, так как он одитировал меня на 2 Ступени Моста.
В конце статьи Вы найдете ссылки на изданные в 2012 году 2 книги Марти о Саентологии.
Вот ссылка на оригинал статьи: http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/how-to-study-scientology/
Обстоятельства моего изучения технологии Саентологии оказались благоприятными.
Я суммировал их в предыдущем посте, «Обучение вне стен». .
У истории есть дополнительный контекст, который, я считаю, проливает свет на мысли в последних здесь сообщениях, что, по-видимому вызвали ужас, распри, хаос, и даже объявление вражды.
Во-первых, прежде чем погрузиться в мое обучение Саентологии, я имел возможность работать непосредственно для Л. Рона Хаббарда в течение последних шести лет его жизни. Я был свидетелем конечного результата неизменной приверженности множеству деректив и технологий, им выпущенных. Это было не привлекательно. Настоящая трагедия, порядка примера, приведенного ЛРХ в Письме по управлению «Ответственность лидеров», история Симона Боливара. Кстати, похоже, я смогу рассказать об этом времени подробно и в контексте, которого оно заслуживает, где-то в конце этой весны.
На тот момент, когда я прибыл на корабль для обучения технологии – после пятнадцати лет службы в Морской Организации – у меня было не очень много технического обучения. Я сбежал из МО, и считал, что с Саентологией покончено навсегда. Единственная причина, по которой я вернулся, было обещание предоставить обучение технологии. Очевидно, веры у меня оставалось ни на грош ни в кого в иерархии Саентологии, так как я открыто совершил побег – самое предательское действие против верховного лидера, которое только можно представить в этой культуре. Мне нечего было терять. Я сбежал один раз, и если бы обещание было нарушено, то я бы удрал опять (что, собственно , в конечном счете и произошло в 2004 году). Но я был сугубо нацелен в полной мере понять и применять то, на охрану и защиту чего я уже пожертвовал лучшие годы своей взрослой жизни.
Tel Aviv, 3 December 2012
To: My friends of 30 years, Scientologists in Israel and world-wide
I discovered Scientology in 1979. I progressed steadily on the Bridge and today I am an OT5. I apply Scientology every day and in all areas of my life.
In the years 1986 to 1993 I lived 7 years in Norway and Denmark where I opened a branch of U-Man, a company for testing personnel which operated under a WISE license. My company gave services in Norway and Denmark. During those years I was on lines at AOSH EU and did my OT5. In 1991 I went to Flag where I did L11.
In 1993 I returned to Israel and a year later joined staff at the Tel Aviv Org where I served as the Public Relations Officer for two and a half years. At the same time I worked with children with study and behavior difficulties, applying LRH Study Tech. Today I work as an educator, continuing to apply successfully the Tech.
I came to Scientology in 1979 following a friend of mine whom I have not seen half a year. I observed in him amazing changes. His communication improved tremendously, he became effusive and full of affinity, bright, well-spoken. I wanted this too. He took me to the Scientology “Shalom” Center on Ha’Yarkon Street in Tel Aviv. A small place, packed full with people, busy and happy. People were smiling, coming and going.
“What is this?” I asked. They said, “Scientology.” “And what is that?” I continued. They answered, “It’s a philosophy to make the able more able.” I listened, I looked, I came and I won … The Communication Course was amazing. The tiny course room was packed full … if I did not come on time, I’d have to sit on the window sill. And the wins were accordingly huge.
Every piece of Tech, even the smallest, changed me into another being, more able – just like LRH promised. “What is true for you is what you have observed yourself.” This sentence alone rehabilitated my whole beingness. And since then, no person could ever enforce upon me his reality or his “truths”, if I did not observe them myself.
“Look, don’t listen” – Wow! This was an acknowledgement to my existence. From that moment on, no teacher, parent or leader, could tell me, using authority of age, experience or education, something that I have not seen or experienced myself and forced me to agree with him. That was a life-changing win!!! That was one sentence that I really understood.
And since then, there were quite a few things I did not agree with – even when reading Scientology materials. I never hesitated to go to the Course Supervisor or to the Ethics Officer at the Org or to any Tech Terminal, and express before him my disagreement. Knowing that his response will be: listening to me and showing me the proper materials, LRH references, asking me to look at more data. Usually I could see things from a new viewpoint and then agree (or not…) because I saw or realized. No one forced his views on me, no one showed me phrases out of context, no one threatened me and I was never afraid to talk … I am still not afraid! Back then, I did not have to calculate how much my thoughts will cost me in hours of “ethics investigation” before my next step on the Bridge. Read the rest of this entry »
