Dianetics Hotline

When I was first introduced to Scientology it was through the book Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health which I've read many times since.

As workable as it was in 1950 when it was first published, it is that effective today. Of course L. Ron Hubbard did a great deal of research after than and in the late 1970's he developed what he called "Net Era Dianetics", but the original procedure outlined in what Scientologists often refer to as "Book 1" (in other words the first Dianetics book) still works.

What's great, though , is now there is a Dianetics hotline. If you start exchanging Dianetics auditing (counseling) with your husband or wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor etc. and you run into something you aren't sure about, you have help at the other end of a phone line. There is even an online feature at the Dianetics web site that allows you to log on and get the help you need.

I met someone from Pakistan who is using the online help line to set up the first Dianetics group in his area.

It's a great combination of a really workable mental and spiritual technology with 21st century high-speed communication lines.

Dianetics counseling has been around for a number of years. There are many people that have been applying these techniques for 30 years or more.

These are caring people who have been helping others for a long time and using Dianetics procedures have been able to genuinely help people.

To know more about the traditional side of Dianetics, there is a web site that depicts this aspect of it.

Dianetics and Scientology in Bulgaria

This is a country where Dianetics and Scientology are brand new. Anyone wishing to find a Dianetics or Scientology group in Bulgaria should go to https://www.dianetics.org/html/en_US/feature/contact/communicate.html. There is someone there who can put you in touch with other Bulgarians who are interested in Dianetics and Scientology.

Here are some facts on Bulgaria:

The Bulgars, a Central Asian Turkic tribe, merged with the local Slavic inhabitants in the late 7th century to form the first Bulgarian state. In succeeding centuries, Bulgaria struggled with the Byzantine Empire to assert its place in the Balkans, but by the end of the 14th century the country was overrun by the Ottoman Turks. Northern Bulgaria attained autonomy in 1878 and all of Bulgaria became independent in 1908. Having fought on the losing side in both World Wars, Bulgaria fell within the Soviet sphere of influence and became a People's Republic in 1946. Communist domination ended in 1990, when Bulgaria held its first multiparty election since World War II and began the contentious process of moving toward political democracy and a market economy while combating inflation, unemployment, corruption, and crime. Today, reforms and democratization keep Bulgaria on a path toward eventual integration into the EU. The country joined NATO in 2004.

Dianetics and Scientology in Italy

Dianetics and Scientology in Italy, on the other hand, are thriving and we are proud that some of our most established Scientology churches such as Milano and Padova are Italian.

Some facts about Italy:

Italy became a nation-state in 1861 when the city-states of the peninsula, along with Sardinia and Sicily, were united under King Victor EMMANUEL II. An era of parliamentary government came to a close in the early 1920s when Benito MUSSOLINI established a Fascist dictatorship. His disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II. A democratic republic replaced the monarchy in 1946 and economic revival followed. Italy was a charter member of NATO and the European Economic Community (EEC). It has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification, joining the European Monetary Union in 1999.

Dianetics and Scientology in the Country of Georgia

Dianetics and Scientology in Georgia (the country - not the state).

Here's some information about the country of Georgia:
Georgia was absorbed into the Russian Empire in the 19th century. Independent for three years (1918-1921) following the Russian revolution, it was forcibly incorporated into the USSR until the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991. Ethnic separation in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, poor governance, and Russian military bases deny the government effective control over the entirety of the state's internationally recognized territory. Despite myriad problems, some progress on market reforms and democratization has been made. An attempt by the government to manipulate legislative elections in November 2003 touched off widespread protests that led to the resignation of Eduard SHEVARDNADZE, president since 1995. New elections in early 2004 swept Mikheil SAAKASHVILI into power along with his National Movement Party.

Dianetics at AOSH EU (AOSHEU)

Did you know that Dianetics has been translated into over 50 different languages?

This is particularly important in Europe where over than 40 different languages are spoken.

AOSH EU (The Church of Scientology Advanced Organization and Saint Hill of Europe) is a very special Scientology church. Not only does it minister the advanced spiritual counseling in their Advanced organization, and the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course (advanced counselor training for Scientology ministers) but they have staff from all over Europe, many of whom speak several different languages.

AOSHEU is also a very beatiful church, in the heart of Copenhagen. The architecture and decor are uniquely Skandinavian. It is an active, warm, exciting place where something is always happening.

Scientology courses differ from courses taught elsewhere in that you don't have to wait for the semester to start to enroll and begin your training. You can walk into a Scientology course and start a course any day - that is literally 365 days a year at any Scientology church in the world.

Since people start courses every day, of course they complete them throughout the year too.

So we have graduation ceremonies at our Scientology churches every week.

The AOSH EU graduation is held on Friday nights. It is a lively affair. Usually starts off with some kind of entertainment. Those who have completed Scientology training or spiritual counseling services for the week are invited onto the stage to receive their certificates and share their wins with the rest of the church members.

The last time I attended a graduation at AOSHEU I was impressed by the incredible diversity of the evening. There were parishioners from Italy, Russia, Spain, France, Sweden and of course Denmark who came up to share what they had gained from the services they had just completed.

There was an AOSH EU staff member standing by to translate into English - the language spoken in common by most of those present. She was an AOSH EU executive staff member who does simultaneous translation on the side!

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this unique Scientology church.

Here are links to each of the many languages in which the Dianetics book is available:

English Dianetics | Afrikaans Dianetics | Albanian Dianetika | Arabic Dianetics | Belorussian Dianetics | Bengali Dianetics | Brazialian Dianética | Bulgarian Dianetics | Croatian Dijanetika | Czech Dianetika | Danish Dianetik | Dutch Dianetics | Farsi Dianetics | Finnish Dianetiikka | French Dianétique | Georgian Dianetics | German Dianetik | Greek Dianetics | Hebrew Dianetics | Hungarian Dianetika | Indonesian Dianetik | Italian Dianetics | Japanese Dianetics | Korean Dianetics | Macedonian Dianetics | Nepalese Dianetics | Norwegian Dianetikk | Polish Dianetyka | Portuguese Dianética | Romanian Dianetica | Russian Dianetics | Serbian Dianetics | Sinhalese Dianetics | Slovakian Dianetika | Slovenian Dianetika | Spanish Dianética | Swahili Dianetics | Swedish Dianetik | Taiwanese Dianetics | Thai Dianetics | Turkish Dianetik | Ukrainian Dianetics | Urdu Dianetics | Uzbek Dianetics | Vietnamese Dianetics | Xhosa IDianetics | Zulu I-Diyanethiki |

I have been asked on numerous occasions what the difference is between the Scientology religion and the Dianetics technology.

Here's the best way I know to describe the difference:

  • Dianetic techniques address what the spirit is doing to the body. It deals with such things as pains, emotional problems such as antagonism, grief, feeling stressed-out, anxious, depressed. It can handle the feeling of loss one experiences at the death of a loved on or the end of a relationship. That is why Dianetics is so perfectly suited to trauma relief, especially since it is very easy to learn the simplest Dianetics techniques. In fact it is common for people to simply read the Dianetics book and then find a partner to work with. Scientology churches, missions and groups offer Dianetics workshops
  • Scientology, on the other hand, deals with the being - the person himself or herself - helping the individual increase ability and intelligence and

There are good descriptions of both Scientology and Dianetics here:

Catherine Bell is one of my favorite performers, and she's also an outspoken human rights advocate and Scientologist.

She recently went to Washington to lobby for real reform programs to reduce recidivism in our prisons. The program she endorses is called "Criminon" and here is an interesting story on what this program does:

Reducing Crime Through Criminon - utilizing the research discoveries made by L. Ron Hubbard

She also promotes Dianetics - the Modern Science of Mental Health as shown here:

Dianetics is such a simple and effective therapy, and anyone can learn to use it.

There is a 24-hour help line for anyone using Dianetics techniques, to direct them to what to do if they run into any questions or difficulty while using Dianetics with a partner.

There's also a new feature on the Dianetics web site - a free extension course for anyone who has purchased the Dianetics book.

In celebration of the 54th annivesary of the publication of Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health a new web site was launched where people can take an Emotional Tone Stress Testdetermine what their emotional tone is.
The subject of emotion is studied and greatly clarified in Dianetics. The book, Science of Survival, the next book Mr. Hubbard wrote after Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, goes in great detail into emotions, what causes them, how they are affected by communication, how a person can raise himself and others in emotional tone, and the way you can predict a whole host of different behaviors based on a person's emotional level.

Australia was one of the first places where Dianetics was practiced, after the release of the book Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health.

How about this one

Dianetics in Moldova!
I love hearing how people first found out about Dianetics, and what they got out of it. Here's an article from a dentist who uses Dianetics in his practice and even opened a Dianetics center in his home town:

How to Meet Your Own Expectations

by Dr. David Cutts, DDS

I was already a pretty successful dentist when I found out about Dianetics. Being a successful dentist was not enough for me, however: I wanted the world. Have my cake and eat it! I dreamt not only of being very successful in my career, but also of having a happy family life (I have four teenage daughters) and making a difference to the people of my community.

To give you a little background on Dianetics: Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health was written in 1950 by L. Ron Hubbard. It was an immediate hit and many groups opened up using the technology of Dianetics. It is now used in more than 150 nations and Dianetics the book is the all-time self-help bestseller, with over 20 million copies sold.

If you've ever felt there was something holding you back in life, ruining your plans and stopping you from being who you want to be, you were right. After many years of research, L. Ron Hubbard discovered that there is a single source to all your problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. It's called the reactive mind. It's the hidden part of your mind that stores painful experiences and uses them against you. This phenomena is explained exactly in the book. Dianetics gets rid of the reactive mind and the book gives the precise technology of how to.

Dianetics did help me fulfill my goals. I now have the practice I have always dreamt of; Dianetics definitely helped me build the marriage I have now and my teenagers are flourishing. I have been able to help the nearby Nuevo community with their children's dental needs; I sponsor youth sports and run the Good Sportsmanship contest and I run the local Temecula Dianetics Center. And there are hundreds of thousands of business people like myself who have benefited from using Dianetics.

I always get a kick out of finding Dianetics groups operating in far-off places (far-off to me, being in the USA). Here's one - Calcutta Dianetics Center and this article on theScientology Mission of Calcutta from Scientology Missions International tells some of the background on how the mission and its Dianetics center was started.

Here is news of another Dianetics center - not anywhere near as exotic (except Silicon Valley can have its moments...)

Here's what John Travolta says about Dianetics: "Dianetics put me into the big time. I always had the ability to be somewhat successful, but Dianetics freed me up to the point where something really big could happen, without interference"

Chic Corea said

"he battle with my reactive mind is over. I can look, understand, decide and act. No more 'inner conflict.' Thanks to Dianetics, I am achieving my goals."

Dianetics certainly changed my life for the better. It is so simple, so easy to understand and use, and so helpful I just want everyone to know about it!
