Before the days of registers demanding details on your net worth and credit card limits,
And before your status in Scientology was based on how much money you have forked over, rather than on your training and application of the tech to assist others …
Before orgs became so desperate for donations to build an “ideal org” that they started inventing events for people to attend that will be turned into a crush reg cycles …
Scientology events used to be a fun. Yes….. FUN!
Once upon a time people would look forward to meeting up with other local Scientologists, and mark it down on their calendar well in advance. They would even invite friends and family to come along (without a thought or concern — imagine that??).
Scientology organizations and events were a place someone could feel safe – an island of sanity in a sea of craziness called Planet Earth (yes – I know I am rocking the reality of many in saying this, as the current scenario in Corporate Scientology is so vastly different to this).
Events using to be exciting, and high ARC – not some weird false gleeful tone that gets all the hair on the back of your neck standing up. And not some dress up party or strange song and dance to get people to come up with another reason to give the local org or the IAS money.
Events used to be about helping people to get onto and progressing on the Bridge. They used to be about real good news. Not PR hype that has worn so thin that only the real sheeple pretend they can’t see the outpoints and false reports.
The new beginning
This time last year there was no delivery of Scientology occurring in the Australian field. Unlike Los Angeles and several other locations where there has been field activities, groups and local events held for some years, in Australia we were starting from scratch.
We have gone from total Non-Existence to having more than 20 people on service lines. A number of Clears were made, several NOTs reviews and completions, and a number of people gotten onto solo levels, all in less than a year. We now have several who had been off auditing lines for more than 30 years, receiving services again (one just completed NOTs), and there are now trained individuals taking action to start delivering in their own regions/areas.
The successful action that launched and continued to build this action, has been Open Houses – and as there are so many other areas on the planet where there is little to no delivery of Scientology occurring in the field, we are now encouraging others to use this model as a way they can create a similar network and result in their own local areas.
The purpose is to simply get people reconnected as Scientologists and to do something for them with the tech based on what they want help with.
The product is Scientology tech used to help people handle what they want handled, whether that is money, work, relationships, getting onto their next Bridge action, or starting their own group or dissemination activity.
There is in fact a new story and it has nothing to do with money. It has nothing to do with your status, personal ethics, or past history.
It is simply about using and applying LRH tech in your life and in the lives of others, to help people.
The Open House
We are calling them Open Houses, as they truly are just that. Anyone is welcome – and no, you don’t need a special event card (screening all “unqualifieds” and potential “trouble sources”) to attend.
Our Open Houses have no set agenda, other than working to do someone for each person that comes. For someone who has been off auditing and wants to get back onto the Bridge, we do a preliminary D of P on the meter, to get all information gathered and a program to the C/S for OK. For those that are having trouble with money, we have done money processing. We have done assists for those that have body situations and got them hatted and drilled on how to do these for when they leave. We don’t charge people for any of this. We simply help people to access and apply the tech.
We have done comparisons of e-meters – including new digital meters, letting people look at them, touch them, play with them, drill with them. We have had people ask for specific LRH references, and we have located them and provided them.
We have answered questions, and encouraged communication between all that attend. Routinely we end up with small groups of people engaging in long and detailed conversations, and many strong friendships have been founded as a result.
We have sorted out people who were bugged on the Bridge – stalled Dianetic Clears, and also a number of people who were bogged on SOLO NOTs or had been told they had not Clear and sent back down the Grade Chart. Each person we did a thorough D of P on, and then got a C/S approved program based on charged areas. We used the event as an opportunity to gather the information for the initial program, and then a schedule is established to get the person through the needed auditing program at a later point (routinely we have used C/S 53’s and Green Forms to handle bypassed charge and get people relief).
The focus of the event is on present time and the future – not long conversations about the past, and certainly not engaging in plotting and planning to cause problems or issues for the C of S. We have found it is just not what people are interested in. They want to handle their own lives and have had enough of Corporate Scientology to last a lifetime. Now they just want to get on with life, and that is where our interest lies as well.
There have been a number of people who have been “under the radar” that have attended our events. We made the space safe for them. We don’t publish photos or names of those that attend and we make sure that all who attend understand that not everyone can immediately publically walk away from the C of S, due to family, friends or work. They depart in their own time, and we assist them in that process, as needed.
We have found that certain subjects are hot and charged – so in accord with basic Scientology, we encourage discussion on those subjects, and make sure that the truth is known and understood. This results in blowing charge for people, a revitalization on the subject of Scientology, as well as a freeing up to do as one wishes on the subject:
The basic truths we have covered to date include:
- There is a difference between Scientology as a body of work, and Corporate Scientology. Scientology is NOT any “corporation”, it isn’t any church of Scientology. It is a body of work for use in life.
- That there was no way that long time, dedicated and hard-working staff were suppressive and that this label was a wrong item.
- The field is not full of squirrels. A lot of field auditors, supervisors, etc. are highly trained technical people who do use standard tech and in fact insist on it.
- In truth DM has introduced out tech in revisions of tech and executive C/Sing, which has caused much hardship for specific individual cases.
- All of LRH’s materials are available and there are trained tech people who will deliver them for a fraction of the cost.
- Disconnection and fair game should never be applied as punishment as it results only in further injustices.
- The abuses of Corporate Scientology are not what we understand Scientology to be, nor are they reflected in the works or basic tenets of the philosophy of Scientology.
- Auditing is easy and does not require lots of controls and supervision to make it work. The simplicities of auditing can be learned with the training routines. With the discipline of the auditing comm cycle, you can use it in session, life, and in any interchange to factually make that interchange an auditing “session”, whether formal or informal.
- The tech is available freely and should be used to help people help themselves.
The story unfolds
In November there are Open Houses being held on the weekend of 16/17 November, being held in many different locations, simultaneously.
If you wish to attend one of these events, contact details are included:
Georgia, USA – contact John Aaron Williams on firstname.lastname@example.org
Toronto, Canada – contact Chris Black on email@example.com
Canberra, Australia – contact Lana Mitchell on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would love to have events held in Texas, in the US Bay Area, in the UK, in Germany and elsewhere – so if you wish to collaborate with a few others and hold an Open House, let us know and we will include your location and contact details for people. We have several months till the event, so there is plenty of time to round up a room full of people to get up to mischief. You can email email@example.com, and we can promote your Open House, along with the others.
Our Open Houses are not serious – they are very uptone, and all about the game of Scientology. There is a lot of relaxed talk, good company and great conversation.
They are really OTs working together, to network, unite and collaborate to get Scientology technology applied in their lives and in that of others. And they seem to work just great.
It is a new story in the Scientology field.
