Dianetics 60th Anniversary Being Celebrated in Churches of Scientology Around the World

image Churches of Scientology around the world celebrate the original release of the religion’s first book this weekend.  Published May 9, 1950, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health became an overnight success and has been a continuing bestseller for 60 years.  The work is the anatomy and full description of a portion of the mind that is the source of nightmares, unreasonable fears, upsets and insecurities.  More than 20 million copies have been sold.

Based on author L. Ron Hubbard’s researches into the mind and human behavior prior to 1950, its release brought on the spontaneous formation of 750 Dianetics groups around the U.S. and establishment of the Hubbard Dianetics Foundation in Elizabeth, New Jersey.  Mr. Hubbard lectured, instructed and otherwise met a staggering demand, while continuing research into the fundamental nature of man culminating in the founding of the Scientology religion in 1952.

Today, Dianetics remains a key substudy of the greater body of Scientology Scripture, its perennial popularity sustained by its workability.  Before Dianetics, prevailing scientific thought held that Man’s mind was his brain, nothing more than a collection of cells and neurons, and IQ and personality were considered fixed and unchanging. With Dianetics, IQ and personality improved, its effectiveness documented in a multitude of case histories over more than half a century of application.

In 2009, Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center, announced the completion of translation in 50 languages of Dianetics and seven other basic Scientology books.  Mr. Miscavige also released 32 new films of visual instruction in Dianetics procedures on DVD, part of a special Hubbard Dianetics Seminar now offered at Churches of Scientology, which include turnabout application of Dianetics procedure.

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health is published by Bridge Publications and is available in 125,000 libraries in over 180 countries as well as public bookstores and Churches of Scientology.  Dianetics Anniversary celebrations are open to the public.

Studying the Dianetics & Scientology Basics in Sequence!

image 

Now that L. Ron Hubbard’s Advanced Clinical Course lectures are completed and available (announced by Mr. David Miscavige just a few days ago), I am starting a full chronological study of Dianetics and Scientology from the beginning through to the very end. 

It’s going to be an utter adventure!  I started last week, studying in the courseroom of the new Founding Church of Scientology in Washington, DC.  I’ll give you more updates as I wend my way through them!

New Dianetics Seminars All Over the USA

imageI’m seeing more and more of the new Dianetics Seminars popping up all over the world on blogs & websites, now that David Miscavige has released the new Dianetics Seminars and new Dianetics DVD instruction films. 

The ScientologyToday article gives an idea of how the Dianetics Seminars work:

The seminar, held in English and Spanish, followed on the heels of last month’s release of How to Use Dianetics—a state of the art, step-by-step, visual guide to L. Ron Hubbard’s legendary self-help bestseller.

Dianetics, which comes from the Greek words dia, meaning through and nous, soul, means, “what the soul is doing to the body through the mind.” Dianetics enables the individual to get rid of, irrational fears, unwanted sensations and emotions.

How to Use Dianetics consists of 18 short films, which illustrates specific Dianetics principles and techniques. With these new films, people new to the subject can easily learn what to expect from a Dianetics session and how to help another using this technology.

Following the presentation of the first of these films, an excerpt of which is available online at www.dianetics.org or www.scientology.org, those attending the Dianetics seminar were paired up immediately to use what they learned, to help someone else and receive help themselves. Supervised by trained Dianetics specialists, the seminar participants gained first-hand experience with just how easy it is to resolve difficulties that were holding them back from achieving their full potential.

 

If you go on the Scientology Church Locator, you can find roughly 600 other locations around the world that are delivering this seminar, like the Scientology Mission of Seattle for example.

New Dianetics How-To DVD Coming

I was just at the Dianetics night event at the Founding Church of Scientology in Washington, DC.

At that event, Mr. David Miscavige spoke about a new DVD on Dianetics, and a series of new Dianetics services that you can take at any Dianetics Center around the world.

The DVD, which I’ll pass you a link for as soon as I can get one, is going to make it worlds easier for anyone to pick up and learn about Dianetics.

If you’ve not had any exposure to the subject thus far, here’s an introductory video on what Dianetics is:

I’ll give you an update on this as soon as there’s a link to the video – and definitely once I’ve gotten a chance to watch it!
