All Scientology and Dianetics Materials have now been fully restored!

December 30, 2009 at 2:13 am (Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, Scientology Auditing, Scientology Handbook, Scientology Religion, Scientology video, scientology.org) (, )

As David Miscavige announced last Sunday: All Scientology scriptures have now been fully restored and released! It’s quite a lot but now it’s all there!

We are very rich in materials, in results

and in the potential future.  Through our hardest times we have

endured.  Into our brightest times we are expanding.

L. Ron Hubbard

After the Basic Books and Lectures of Scientology and Dianetics, now 1,020 lectures – the Advanced Clinical Courses (ACCs) – are available for everyone! The biggest reference library that ever existed on life and livingness!

THE MATERIALS OF DIANETICS AND SCIENTOLOGY

An Introduction

We are very rich in materials, in results

and in the potential future.  Through our hardest times we have

endured.  Into our brightest times we are expanding.

—L. Ron Hubbard

In fulfillment of those words, and quite literally so, came the Golden Age of Knowledge. It is predicated on the fact the Scientology Bridge is comprised of training, auditing and knowledge, of which knowledge is most preeminent. It is further predicated on the fact that Scientology is comprised of materials representing a chronological path of research and development. But with only a portion of those materials previously available, Scientologists possessed no route to complete understanding of that path. Indeed, there was no way to even gain an understanding of how various materials related to other materials—how books related to lectures, or one series of lectures related to another. Then, too, there was no way to differentiate between various bodies of materials—between broad public lectures and lectures intended for professional auditors.

Thus, Scientologists were left with what LRH aptly described as a “narrow view” of Scientology, a view which neglected the more considerable materials.

And thus came what he long advised in the way of a Materials Guide Chart

for the all-encompassing view.

It is expressly what the title implies: a comprehensive guide to the materials of Dianetics and Scientology—what those materials represent each unto themselves and how they relate to one another. In that respect, the Materials Guide Chart was indeed the key to understanding the woof and warp of LRH materials and thus

the backdrop against which the Golden Age of Knowledge unfolded.

In full, the Golden Age of Knowledge constitutes the single most sustained and embracive program in Scientology history—more than 25 years of concerted research, recovery, restoration and verification. Included therein were projects to locate all extant LRH manuscripts and recorded lectures—which, in turn, necessitated scouring every locale where he wrote and/or lectured. Also in the name of a Golden Age of Knowledge was a two-million-man-hour project to ensure the purity of LRH materials: that transcriptional errors in dictated issues/books were corrected, that editorial additions were deleted and that every page of LRH was indeed LRH—right down to the last comma. While if only for the merest sense of it: quite apart from altered punctuation and garbled text as inserted by stenographers, careful scrutiny revealed whole passages omitted from Basic Scientology Books and entire sequences of chapters reversed. Consequently, and no matter how carefully those books were studied—words cleared, concepts demonstrated—full conceptual understanding was impossible.

There was substantially more. Quite beyond challenges of textual verification lay seemingly insurmountable problems of tape restoration. In particular, among the 3,000 lectures LRH delivered from 1950 forward were numerous recordings on deteriorating tapes and fragile wax disks not heard since LRH originally delivered those lectures.

Moreover, any attempt to copy such recordings threatened to destroy the lecture entirely.  There were also recordings burdened with electronic interference—hisses, crackles, pops and static—that left whole passages largely indecipherable.  In consequence, many a lecture series had been scrambled, which in and of itself obscured the LRH path of research and development.

In reply, and only made possible when project engineers pushed twenty-first-century digital technology to the very ends of the envelope, came full restoration of the LRH lecture library.  Full tonality, full clarity, full lecture transcriptions and glossaries, even matching ambience to the rooms in which LRH originally lectured—all this has now come to life in the Golden Age of Knowledge.

With the full legacy of LRH materials at hand came the equally monumental task of making those materials globally available. It proved an equally daunting task as no conventional publishing, printing or compact disc manufacturing plant would suffice—not with 3,000 separate lectures in the library and a catalog of LRH books for readers in any one of fifty languages. Indeed, it actually required a wholly original printing, pressing and distribution strategy. That strategy is now embodied in the world’s largest in-house digital publishing facilities: The Church of Scientology’s Bridge Publications in Los Angeles and New Era Publications in Copenhagen. In tandem, those organizations provide books and lectures on a truly universal scale (whether 500 copies for an emerging Scientology community or many millions for the Americas). Accordingly, LRH materials in, say, Vietnamese or Swahili are now provided with the same efficiency and

economy as an English edition of Dianetics. The net result: Dianetics and Scientology materials now accessible to almost anyone and at a cost below that of even 1950.

The materials of Dianetics and Scientology represent both the foundation of The Bridge to Total Freedom and the totality of knowledge requisite for freedom. They also signify the triumph of LRH Technology and all whys and wherefores of his technical development. Then too (and it is a triumph in and of itself), you now possess the entirety of these materials and they literally lay bare the secrets of this universe for all eternity. Consequently, all that remains is that we fulfill these words from LRH:

There are vistas never dreamed of;

there are joys never even known,

there are glories no past glory ever surpassed.

These wait for you but only if you accept my legacy

and help bring these things about.

—L. Ron Hubbard

Scientology Celebrity Centre: Celebrities Tell ‘Christmas Stories’ to Benefit Underprivileged Children

December 11, 2009 at 2:44 am (Church of Scientology, Scientology) (, , )

HOLLYWOOD – Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International members Anne Archer, Erika Christensen, Jason Dohring, Jenna Elfman, MC Lyte, Priscilla Presley, Beth Riesgraf and Edgar Winter and film composer Mark Isham performed in the annual Christmas Stories show over the weekend to an audience of over 500. Created in the theme of a 1930s holiday variety radio show, guests were treated to traditional and original renditions of music, dance, skits and stories. Since 1993 the Christmas Stories performances have raised more than $245,000 for community youth programs.

This year’s production benefits the Hollywood Police Activities League annual Christmas party and at-risk youth programs and will provide meals, games and toys for children who would otherwise have no Christmas.

LAPD Hollywood Division Captain Bea Girmala presented a city of Los Angeles Certificate of Commendation to the Church for its 17 year-old charity event, which was accepted on behalf of the Church and its volunteer performers by the President of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International, Maria Ferrara. “We are honored to support our police in their efforts to help children in need and give them a better future,” said Ferrara.

The Police Activities League (PAL) is a nationwide youth development program operated by police officers who provide positive role models for youth. The program includes educational and recreational activities for at-risk youth as an alternative to gang violence, drug use and criminal activities. Hollywood PAL is staffed by full-time police officers dedicated to programs that serve Hollywood youth, including swimming, street hockey, basketball, martial arts, soccer, computer activities, arts, crafts and educational tutoring.

Scientology Volunteer Minister Returns to Kenya

December 3, 2009 at 1:22 am (Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, Religion, Scientology, Volunteer Ministers) (, , )

Scientology Volunteer Minister provides seminars to Kenya groups to help them cope with a changing environment.

As Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga was speaking to a regional forum on the economic and social ramifications of global warming Monday, Scientology Volunteer Minister David Dempster had just arrived back in Kenya to deliver a weeklong training session to Scout Leaders in Nairobi.

An active Volunteer Minister of the Church of Scientology of Tampa, Dempster first visited the country in September when he was asked to fly there to deliver a series of Volunteer Ministers seminars.   Based on practical technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard, these seminars help people cope with the issues of a changing society.

For ten days, together with staff of the Church of Scientology Mission of Nairobi, Dempster delivered seminars to a wide variety of groups and organizations in the city of Nairobi and neighboring towns and villages.  These seminars helped the attendees improve their communication and organizational skills as well as their ability to resolve problems.

Now back in Nairobi at the invitation of the Scouts of Kenya, Dempster is helping Scout Leaders accomplish their purpose for the entire country with courses aimed at developing good citizenship, character and self-reliance.

“It is a particular pleasure to work with this group and help them add to their scouting skills.”said Dempster.  “These dedicated leaders are working hard to help their fellow Kenyans and improve conditions in their beautiful country.”
