“Scientology does not teach you. It only reminds you. For the information was yours in the first place.” – L. Ron Hubbard
Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard (1911-1986), beginning in 1952 as a successor to his earlier self-help system, Dianetics. Hubbard characterized Scientology as a religion, and in 1953 he incorporated the Church of Scientology in Camden, New Jersey.
Scientology teaches that people are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature. Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is a type of counselling known as auditing, in which practitioners aim to consciously re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects.
