Scientology handbook on how to study

September 28, 2008 at 1:11 am (Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology) (, )

A teacher’s primary goal is to provide children the most effective tools they need to succeed in life. Keeping this in focus, L Ron Hubbard formulated the techniques best suited for inculcating the knowhow among students at schools on how to study.

Teachers around the world enter their profession to help create the future of society by providing children with the tools they need to succeed in life. Perhaps, no profession is in greater need of the technology developed by L Ron Hubbard.

Teachers at a primary school in India attend a seminar in study technology, developed by Hubbard.
In the course of researching how to educate people to effectively apply Scientology principles, Hubbard came face to face with the fact that there was no technology of study with declining literacy in schools despite billions being poured into improving the quality of education.
Hubbard isolated key factors that prevent a person from being able to assimilate information and use it, and that’s a vital factor in education today.
The study technology LRH developed to overcome this is part of the skills of a volunteer minister. In surveying the leaders of the countries they visit, the Scientology volunteer ministers goodwill tours find this subject to be one service that nearly every city or town recognises as important.
So, it was with this seminar given recently to teachers at a primary school in Delhi, India. When educators learn the simple tools covered in the chapter of the Scientology handbook called ’The Technology of Study’ and the booklet by the same title (which is now published in Hindi and Bengali) the recognition of the value of this is immediate. Having isolated the most basic barriers to study, Hubbard provided simple tools any student can learn. As covered in the Scientology handbook: ’Consider this for a moment: In all your schooling, did anyone teach you how to study something?’
Today, many young persons graduating from school are unable to read or write at a level adequate to hold a job or deal with life. It is a big problem. It is not that subjects cannot be learned. What isn’t taught is how to learn. It is the missing step in all education.
Hubbard filled this gap by supplying the first and only technology of how to study. He discovered the laws on which learning is based and developed workable methods for anyone to apply. He called this subject ’Study Technology. This technology provides an understanding of the basics of learning and supplies exact ways to overcome all the pitfalls one can encounter during study.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers in Indonesia

September 28, 2008 at 1:00 am (Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, Scientology Handbook, Volunteer Ministers) (, , )

With a population of 222 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world. And if there were a competition for the most dangerous place to live, when it comes to natural disasters it would rank right up there at the top of the list.

The December 2004 tsunami brought this fact home to the world. Anyone with a TV set or access to the Internet was engulfed by the images of the devastation: more than 170,000 dead in a matter of minutes; millions displaced from their homes; loss in property or possessions incalculable; an entire population affected by the loss.

Within days of the disaster, hundreds of Scientology volunteers arrived in Medan, the capital of the province of North Sumatra. Led by an experienced team of Australian Scientology Volunteer Ministers, several hundred Scientologists from around the world formed into the Scientology Disaster Relief Team. First order of business—help the rescue workers, identify the bodies, deliver water, food and blankets to those who survived.

With the most urgent and life-threatening needs attended to, the Scientology volunteers began concentrating on the service based on Scientology principles. These techniques have become the hallmark of the program—they helped those affected by the disaster recover from the effect of injury, trauma and loss, using techniques, developed by L. Ron Hubbard, called Scientology assists. They also trained doctors, nurses, Muslim clerics and family members, using the Scientology Handbook. They in turn brought help to survivors, and so touched the lives of hundreds of thousands in desperate need to help.

When The Scientology Volunteer Ministers packed up and returned home, they left behind a team of local volunteers whom they trained and formed up into the Scientology Assist Team of Medan, Indonesia.

So it was that in May 2006, when Yogyakarta was struck by a magnitude 6.3 earthquake, members of the the Medan Scientology Assist Team were already on hand when Scientologists from Australia, the United States and Europe flew in to help. The team provided urgently needed help in hospitals that were so overcrowded that parking structures had been turned into makeshift wards to care for those injured by the disaster.

And again in July 2006 when Java was shaken by a magnitude 7.7 quake, once again the Scientologists trained thousands of Indonesians to deliver Scientology assists.

By the end of August 2006 the Scientology volunteers trained more than 10,000 Indonesians who in turn have helped hundreds of thousands more.

The legacy of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers continues to this day, with active members of the Scientology Disaster Relief Team on call throughout the country to help in times of need.
