Name or Alias: SH
Training and/or processing level: OT3
Org or location: US
Time involved in the Church of Scientology: 5
Recommended Website - N/A
1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
The first time (last lifetime) I was an acquaintance of Hubbard and volunteered to be audited
The second time (this lifetime) through a friend


2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
information about and processing for the spiritual being

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
N/A

4. Did you see, experience, or hear about things that didn't seem right while you were in the Church of Scientology? What were they, and what convinced you to set aside your feelings?
everything listed in the examples.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I was under contract

6. Were you staff or public? If staff, was it at a mission or an org? Were you ever in the Sea Org or OSA? Which unit? If not on staff, did you ever volunteer to 'help out'?
mission and an org

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
For several months I taught a course on Dianetics in exchange for money on account. This was arranged by 2 Sea Org members that were temporarily stationed at the org in Minnesota. Stats went into power. The Sea Org people left and I was then told by the ED that the money on account arrangement was off policy and wouldn't be honored. That was the last straw regarding staff work.
Due to previous life auditing and being natural clear, I was not a typical pc and the auditing I had this lifetime usually had to be repaired later. It got to the point where I refused to be audited locally and hoped someday to have the money to go to Clearwater. But when I heard of someone delivering tech outside the church, there was no longer a need for me to be a Scientologist


8. Do you think the Church of Scientology needs to change some of its practices? If so, what should be changed? How did those practices affect your life?
I left in 1982 and I still get mail. It would be nice to be off the mailing list!
I believe that there are many outpoints in the organization, but don't think they should change. 3D aberration is pretty wide spread in society as well as scientology. I would rather have those that wish to dramatize their third dynamic be together in one group and run it out. This way I know where they are and can steer clear.


9. If the items you listed in the previous question were changed, would you consider rejoining or staying in the Church of Scientology? If so, why?
no

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
For all its many faults, I think the CofS does do some good and serves a purpose. It's like a prep school for thetans. They go, learn a little, improve a little and then move on.
All the splinter groups, independant auditors and websites are both comforting and exciting to me. I know the tech is not being hoarded and its evolution is not being stifled by one organization.
