What was good about Scientology's Comm Course? Well, the "Confronting" — staring at someone and not moving — wasn't too bad. Done in moderation, and after my eyes stopped hurting, I treated it as just a form of relaxing meditation. But too many of the TRs in the Comm Course seem to me to be geared toward learning how to not communicate — to wear a robotic, emotionless mask. According to Hubbard, "The only reason a person gives up a study ...

Yes... The Church of Scientology (which was founded by L. Ron Hubbard and operates a mission in Santa Rosa) is often charged with using mind control techniques to obtain and maintain the loyalty and resources of its members. Scientology officials, as well as many Scientology church members, scoff at these charges, insisting their practices and teachings are designed to liberate the mind, not enslave it. But Ford Schwartz, a longtime Scientologist and later a "deprogrammer" for the Freedom Counseling Center in ...

I sat in a stiff-backed chair. I had no thoughts, no fears, no hopes — or at least I tried to feel that way. I didn't look at the room around me, or hear the other people talking, or notice the roar of traffic floating through the window. I simply stared deep into the eyes of the young man who sat facing me. I stared at him, motionless, and was there, and confronted him, and didn't react — just as I'd ...

The Legislative Council yesterday passed legislation to lift bans on Scientology in Victoria. Scientology has been banned under a State law passed in 1965. There are 6000 scientologists in Victoria who practise their faith despite the ban. The Liberal and National Parties did not oppose a bill to amend the Psychological Practices Act, introduced by the Health Minister, Mr Roper. He claimed the act was a nonsense law brought in in a fit of panic in the 1960s. The Psychological Practices ...

"To try to stop people from listening, the Chaos Merchant has to use words like 'cult,' " says L. Ron Hubbard (founder of the Church of Scientology) of his enemies. "That's a closed group, whereas Scientology is the most open group on Earth to anyone." Cult or religion? Scientology has been called both. A note prefacing most of Hubbard's books defines Scientology as "a religious philosophy containing pastoral counseling procedures intended to assist an individual to gain greater self-confidence and personal ...

The year was 1950. The book was Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, written by a 39-year-old "pulp" writer of science fiction, L. Ron Hubbard. A few months earlier, Hubbard had outlined the book's tenets in a magazine called Astounding Science Fiction. And a year before that, at a lecture for science fiction writers, Hubbard had mused, "Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way would be ...

CARSON CITY, Nev. — The former L. Ron Hubbard Jr. shed his father's name in a simple legal maneuver. Shedding the effects of his powerful church is another matter. Left behind are bitter hatreds, fears for his safety only half-jokingly laughed off, charges of money-grubbing and wrongdoing and deep emotional scars. The Church of Scientology counters that the wayward son is merely fantasizing. Ron DeWolf, 47, first born offspring of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, the brilliant and controversial force behind the fabulously ...

Ron Hubbard, and added, "He's a chip off the old block." DeWolf said he holds a similar view of Ms. Cooper. HE ...
