Scientology front group WISE: first hand accounts of harassment and recruiting in the workplace

A series of newspaper articles detailing the abuse of workers by scientology employers and managers. --

Last updated Saturday, January 27, 2007

Mike Gormez ( organized these web pages because he feels that "religious" organizations should be honest with their members about their true goals, and businesses should be honest about religious connections with their clients and employees. Trust is vital when doing business. A check of a dozen or so Scientology front groups in the US, such as the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Narconon or its management consultants arm, World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE), reveal that their main statement of purpose, filed with the IRS (US tax authority), indicates the group's main purpose is to prosletyze Scientology. The Organization has numerous facades and front groups, many of which flat out deny their connection to Scientology. Many suspect this is so because if its doctrine and practices were revealed to the "raw meat" (Scientologese for potential recruit) they would run away and never come back.

A defector tells how a management/consultancy group's employees were told to keep the connection a secret. Persons like Larry Wollersheim, Shiona Fox-Ness, Tory Bezazian (now Tory Christman), Greg Barnes (fourth video), chiropractor Ed Hattaway, who alleges World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) and Scientology destroyed his life, architect Lawrence Woodcraft in Los Angeles, and Michael P. Pattinson are but an example of those who have had businesses hurt by Scientology. Julie Richard was employed in a medical office and told how a scientologist wanted access to patient files so he could see which ones were likely candidates for Scientology processing.

There is too much disparity to uphold the integrity of an organization that allows its employees (eg. management consultants) to tell clients that their material is secular and non-religious, and then turn around and among themselves talk freely about "Routing Clients onto the Bridge" (Scientologese for increasing membership in Scientology). Or are quoting Scientology scriptures ( What we expect of a Scientologist) in World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) mailings.

Do you really want to give these people your money and access to your company, or worse, let Scientology decide who to hire and fire ? Educate yourself on Scientology before you decide it's just a harmless cult.

What is Scientology?
-- Quick answers by Dave Touretzky: --
  1. Self-help courses. Begins with a free personality test that ALWAYS shows you have serious mental problems.
  2. Dianetics: a kind of quack psychotherapy in which you revisit all the bad stuff that ever happened to you, from conception onward.
  3. Scientology: you discover that you are an immortal being, and you need therapy for all the bad things that happened to you in all your previous lives, too.
  4. Advanced Scientology (the Operating Thetan levels): you discover that you are possessed by the spirits of murdered space aliens, and they need therapy too. Bad news: they have no money, so you have to pay.
  5. SP level: you decide that Scientology is bullshit, and leave. The cult declares you an enemy and Suppressive Person, and harasses you for the next 10 years.
According to Scientology, such people who have done the Operating Thetan levels are "at cause over matter, energy, space, time, form and life."

I leave it to the reader's discretion what to make of that.

World Institute of Scientology Enterprises
-- Just Another Recruitment Vehicle for the Church of Scientology --


A WISE [World Institute of Scientology Enterprises] member is entitled to be paid by Church of Scientology orgs and missions for getting people onto services; their pay shall be in terms of commissions. Such commissions can be quite lucrative, depending only on the activity of the WISE member.

-- WISE Policy Directive Internal 14, 27 March 1986 "Field Staff Member Activities"


WISE is the Scientology sector responsible for getting the supposedly secularized "Hubbard Management System" / "organizational and management technology" / "Management and Administrative Technology" / "LRH admin tech" in a wide as use as possible. The system is basically ruthless management by statistics which preaches a rigorous, even ruthless devotion to raising productivity for both staff and clients. The founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, wrote the material to manage the Church of Scientology and "is part of the religious literature and works of Scientology" (Foreword in OEC and Management Series books). Hubbard incidentely flunked out of College and lied about virtually every aspect of his life.

Though the WISE affiliates deny the material is core part of the Scientology belief system. Afiliates like Hubbard College of Administration, Sterling Management Systems, David Singer Enterprises, Marcus Group Enterprises (MGE) / MGE: Management Experts, Hollander Consultants, Silhouet, Prosperity Plus Management Consulting, Modus Operandi Consultants owned by Manuel Nugteren, U-Man, Halverson-Quigley Management Systems (HQMS), Flasch Business Consulting and many others.

Likewise will they vehemently deny any relation with the Church of Scientology. However as the above internal policy and a magazine article published by WISE indicates, they are indeed rewarded money for every new Scientology recruit they make. To add insult to injury has WISE put togheter a 300 page manual for WISE consultants to maximize the number of new recruits into Scientology.

This is how that manual is touted in WISE International magazine Prosperity, issue #60, September 2003, pages 12 - 13: "We also produce the Consultant's Guide to Bridge Dissemination, a manual of more than 300 pages on how to handle clients, colleagues and business associates who come to you for help with their personal problems by referring them to a Church of Scientology for assistance."

 Licenses -- WISE licenses individuals to sell and deliver products and services based on L. Ron Hubbard's administrative works. Thus all Hubbard management consultants are licensed by WISE, as are all publishing companies which sell derivative works.
[WISE International magazine Prosperity,
issue 60, September 2003, page 27]

Perhaps by now you wonder what qualifycations those WISE licensed consultants need before they can do their thing with your company and mind? Well, all Hubbard management consultants need to be licensed by WISE of course (they want money) and have to have followed training at the Church of Scientology or Hubbard College of Administration.

 World Institute of Scientology Enterprises acknowledges administrative training done at a Church of Scientology, as well as training on the consultant training programs at a Hubbard College of Administration.
[WISE International magazine Prosperity, issue 60, September 2003, page 12]

Yet despite all this they stiil maintain that their material is non-religious while out of public sight WISE sent out a mailing for a mandatory attendance of an International Association of Scientology (IAS) briefing.

Thus I assume the scam operates as follows:

  1. WISE does not really hide they are part of Scientology because it is the first word of the title of their website ("Scientology // World Institute of Scientology Enterprises - WISE") and part of their name. What's more, WISE Int, and all of WISE for that matter, are Sea Org Organizations. The Sea Org is the most powerful entity in Scientology in which people sign a billion year contract pledging themselves to Scientology.
  2. scientology on its part calls WISE a "religious fellowship" and at the same time " an autonomous corporation separate and apart from churches of Scientology" and declares a WISE consulting firm to be "not part of the church at all"
  3. The "Code of a WISE member" contains several nuggets which should not be neglected:
    • 7. I promise to take responsibility to protect the trademarks and copyrights of Dianetics, Scientology and WISE, and their use in the business world.
    • 18. I promise to take responsibility to protect Scientology churches from distraction, disruption or misuse of their lines or personnel by commercial activities.
    • 19. I promise not to use Scientology churches and their communication lines for purposes of personal financial gain.
    • 20. I promise not to condone the use of Scientology churches and their communication lines to forward the personal financial gain of any individual but to do my part to see that they operate exclusively for the spiritual objectives of the Scientology religion.

    Next time Sterling, Hollander or any other of the WISE companies tell you they have nothing to do with Scientology, ask them about this code. They are bound by it.

  4. WISE does use the "Sacred Scriptures" of Scientology however, and President WISE International, Don Drader and his peers are part of Scientololgy's paramilitary Sea Organization.
  5. Licensed WISE consultants are urged to recruit for Scientology and can order a WISE manual how to recruit, but will insist at every opportunity they have "no links to Scientology "
  6. And the L. Ron Hubbard material furnished by the "religious fellowship" WISE to be used by dentists, veterinarians, software companies etc. are all of a sudden " secularized'' - " not Scientology, or related to religion" - " totally secular, totally nonrelated to religion" because they say it is. Contradicting internal writings to the contrary.

There are those who dispute Scientology's claim.

Robert Boston, spokesman for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, of Washington, D.C., said in a telephone interview that ``the Scientologists often try and have it both ways.

``They spent a lot of time trying to convince the courts they are a legitimate religion,'' Boston said. ``And they won that battle. They are now considered a bona fide, tax-exempt religious organization. But sometimes now they try and argue that they have this secular arm, when it suits their purposes.''

Key information on WISE

-- Jeff Jacobson wrote a thorough essay on how W.I.S.E. operates as a Scientology front group.

-- Robert Palinkas (current President WISE Canada) in an excerpted e-mail when he was still at WISE International: "WISE Int, and all of WISE for that matter, are Sea Org Organizations".

-- Robert Vaugh Young wrote an extraordinary declaration on the workings of WISE and an examination of the licensing agreement with Sterling Management. Did you know that Scientology stated to the IRS that WISE "was formed to accomplish several objectives with respect to expanding the religion" of Scientology?

-- Articles of Incorporation, World Institute of Scientology Entreprises (WISE), 1 February 1983. wise-incorporation-1983.pdf PDF file (57kb). This leaves very little to the imagination:

"It is organized under the Nonprofit Religious Corporation Law primarily for religious purposes. Its purposes are to promote and foster the religious teachings of L. Ron Hubbard in society, and to have and exercise all rights and powers from time to time granted to nonprofit corporations by law."
WISE's Articles of Incorporation were still in effect on 27 July 2004 - a fact that I determined simply by doing an on-line "California Business Search."

-- WISE's Place on the Scientology Org Board. If anyone disputes that World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) is part of Scientology, they can look on this page to see exactly where WISE fits in the Scientology organizational hierarchy.

-- Recruiting business people into Scientology is lucrative for WISE consultants (commission) and is advocated within WISE. How the recruitment is done is told on video by Bill and Barbara, two dentist who say they were defrauded by Scientology after signing up for management training courses. What's even more amazing than the regular recruitment into Scientology is WISE's recruitment for Scientology's Sea Organization with as rationale to "Put Scientology here securely for eternity."

-- Explanation of the WISE membership system, a posting by Cerridwen. Not all Scientologists that are members of WISE pay a weekly percent (10 or 15%) of their income. The sceme consists of 6 membership levels plus one Disseminator membership which is not listed. This is for WISE-licensed members as well as executives and employees of companies which sell and deliver L. Ron Hubbard's "administrative technology", such as seminarists and consultants.

-- The Command Channels of Scientology. Excerpt from a larger document, showing that World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) is an integral part of the Scientology corporate structure and this page also shows that of the 13 WISE offices, 8 offices are located within Scientology Continental Liaison Offices.

-- Recently extracts of WISE Info Letter 36 of 21 December 2003 were posted. Paragraph 3 says:

"However, the primary reason WISE was established was to see to it that Scientology organizations, their staff and their public, are kept safe from individuals involved in unethical business practices."

Expert Reports by Prof. Dr. Stephen Kent

Three dental office employees where fired by Dr. Aydin Cabi, DDS because they refused, on grounds of religious conscience, to attend MasterTech Computer Products seminars based upon aspects of Scientology-a religion that, they felt, conflicted with their own beliefs. Six people sued C. AYDIN CABI, DDS, INC. and Stephen A. Kent Ph.D was asked to write an expert report for the plaintiffs:

Export report -- 7 September 2003.

The I-20 Animal Medical Center had pressured its employees to attend scientology courses. Six of them sued with the help of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and got a $150,000 settlement, and the defendants had to agree not to use any "religiously-influenced" training material.

Declarations by people who have been there

-- Declaration of dentist Alexander Turbyne III. Turbyne explains how WISE company Sterling Management Systems lured him into Scientology.

Sterling Management is good at what it does, namely, introducing people to the ideas of Scientology. The only problem is that what it does is quite different from what it says it does. If I had known this, at the introductory Seminar or through the mailings, I would have kept my money and signed up with a dental management firm and not a Scientology Recruiting Firm....

-- Declaration of chiropractor Ed Hattaway. Ed was lured into Scientology via WISE company David Singer Enterprises and lost his home, office and all of the equipment. Just like many other young chiropractors and dentists who are preyed upon by Scientology, he too felt his education didn't give him enough business training and went out looking for that.

The trap I fell into personally, professionally and financially was not set by some wide-eyed cult follower with a message about zenu the intergalactic warlord. I stepped into the mess by following doctors who I saw as successful and as leaders in the field of chiropractic, dentistry and business management!

-- Declaration of dentist Robert G.. Bob and his wife were recruited into Scientology via Sterling Management Systems.

While I was at Sterling Management taking courses, several dentists were lulled from their "business management courses" at Sterling and sent to the Church of Scientology in Orange County for auditing rather than finishing their Sterling courses. The "hook" used for selling auditing was that the students were being sent out for more detailed interpretation of their personality profiles.

Fired by scientologist? It does happen!

- What employees who have been discrimated against should do -

File a complaint of religions discrimination at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

The following is taken from the article Religion in the Workplace from a section of

"Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers in the US are prohibited from discriminating against individuals because of their religion in hiring, firing, and other terms and conditions of employment."

"Charges of discrimination based on religion MUST be filed within 180 days of the incident. Charges may be filed in person, by mail or by telephone by contacting the nearest EEOC office, If there is not an EEOC office in the immediate area, call toll free 800-669-4000 or 800-669-6820 (TDD) for more information."

If you have been the subject of such discrimination you should file a complaint! If as Scientology claims, it's a religion, it cuts both ways. Make them accountable for the illegal act(s). It's your Civil Right at stack! Bellow a small excerpt of rules:

Scientology infiltration and subversion

On June 10, 1960, Hubbard issued a seemingly innocent Bulletin saying that not all scientologists need be professional "auditors", or counsellors. He encouraged his followers to bring Scientology to the society through their jobs. He praised those who had already exerted influence: "These people ... drove a wedge for themselves into companies, societies, with Scientology and then took over control of the area."( 25) On 23 June, Hubbard extended his design with the Special Zone Plan: "a nation or state runs on the ability of its department heads, its governors, or any other leaders. It is easy to get posts in such areas ... Don't bother to get elected. Get a job on the secretarial staff or the bodyguard ... don't seek the co-operation of groups. Don't ask for permission".( 26) Hubbard went on to give the ex ample of a police officer quietly intruding Scientology into his workplace. In the 1970s, a San Diego police lieutenant was disciplined for using police computers on behalf of Scientology.( 27) In the 1990s, the president of Finland dismissed his scientologist bodyguard,

Jon Atack: Scientology: religion or intelligence agency ?

Excerpt of ED 1040
  1. Take a business that is already doing fairly well on the basis that you reward the up-stat.
  2. Approach the highest executive and disseminate Scientology to him. Offer to make his business make more money for him at no cost to him.
  3. Next action is to put in Ethics. Locate the SP's in the org and fire them.
  4. Audit the Execs ... show them what its all about. This will then start the cycle of getting in tech in the organization. Execs will push their juniors and other staff to have auditing. Start in the organization would be interested anyway as a result of suppressives out of the way thereby making the environment a safer place to work in ... seeing Scientologists in operation ... and also seeing the case gains on their seniors.

- "New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project" -

Downtown Medical

Scientology cashing in on the 9/11 tragedy and NYC Firemen? It sure seems so. The cult has never been known for being scrupulous and jumped on the bandwagon to use yet another opportinity for nice PR pictures and offering Scientology under a different name. Downtown Medical offers the "Hubbard Detoxification Program" which in Scientology is sold as the purification rundown. There it is a "preliminary religious ritual that all new members must buy," as was reported in the Boston Globe.

The purification rundown made up by Scientology founder L.Ron Hubbard, isn't only sold in Scientology or Downtown Medical, so too it is part of Scientology's Narconon. But there it is touted as a treatment for sweating out drugs. In a handful of prisons the scientologists use yet a different name for the unscientific "detoxification"; Second Chance Program. One treatment fits all, in Scientology. What is mandatory for new scientologists, is mandatory for new Narconon & Second Chance Program clients, and is mandatory for New York firemen when they want to do the Scientology-based detox program at Downtown Medical.

Media articles on this scam

Scientologists teaching impressionable young children Scientology-doctrine in public schools

What is truly alarming is that Scientology, using its "Narconon Drug Prevention & Education program" label, is able to teach young children some of its doctrine about drugs and detoxification, a method which is called "pseudoscience" by Dr. Peter Banys, director of substance abuse programs at the VA Medical Center in San Francisco.

After public outcry has the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) told Narconon to "stop teaching what the district calls inaccurate and misleading information" before June the 24th 2004, or get "removed from the list of Community Based Organizations". Narconon can not really change what they teach, it is officially carved in stone by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Scientology corporation. Hubbard, internally referred to as "Source", ruled that only he could change the doctrine of Scientology, and he's been dead since 1986.. But Scientology - it has to be admitted - has found new ways to change some Hubbard. One of the tricks they employ is using his trademarked name as part of the title of rewritten books. No one sees the difference and only the copyright registrations at the copyright office reveal the fraud.

How this will end is very interesting. Of course the proper way would have been to kick Scientology's Narconon out of schools because of the state/church separation issue and the program is called by experts "irresponsible" and "pseudoscience," charging that students are being introduced to Scientology beliefs and methods without their knowledge.

On 17 June 2004 the latest news was that Superintendent Jack O'Connell of the California Department of Education, has ordered an investigation of Narconon's program in schools: "We have an obligation to inform school districts of potentially inaccurate and misleading information being distributed," O'Connell said. "We'll start following this. We can send a memo to all school districts with the flip of a switch."

    Experts on the Hubbard purification rundown/detoxification program

    More expert opinions, including the opinion of United States Assistant Surgeon General, can be found on Another story worth reading is how Scientology at Ground Zero was obstructing much needed help.

    If you are a NY firefighter or rescue worker and wonder whether you should do the detoxification program AKA purification rundown, then read these words of the offical Scientology "scripture" on the sole purpose of the purification rundown:

    The Purification Rundown has as its sole purpose the handling of the restimulative effects of drugs and toxic residuals on a Spiritual Being. The Purification Rundown is a Spiritual activity based on and administered according to the doctrine and practices of the religion of Scientology as set forth in the writings of L. Ron Hubbard and adopted by the Church. No part of the Rundown is intended as the diagnosis, prescription for, or treatment of any bodily or physical condition or ill.

    I understand that this part of the page grew rather large, but how children are lied to by the scientologists and teached Scientology beliefs is important to bring to the surface. And in a sense is not different than how managers are deceived by WISE and its consultants. After all, like WISE is Narconon is a world-wide problem, and while I am glad the Narconon presentations are pushed out of schools here and there, they still manage to deceive schools somewhere else and get close to our children. In Melbourne schools f.e. they are free to peddle their unscientific ware, reported the Herald Sun on 15 August 2005.
