"With this grade I regained the ability to accept change and create change at will. This includes change in myself as well as granting beingness to others. I have also recovered some old (forgotten) postulates that I had made about past upsets in my life as well as other-determined 'purposes' that I had confused as my own. Upson seeing these, I was able to make new postulates and have a better eye for the future. This grade couldn't have happened at a better time in my life...as big changes are coming ahead."

Her success from Introductory Dianetics Auditing: "Oh my gosh!!!! I have been able to remember things and people that I have thought were gone. I cannot express just how exciting it feels. The weight on my spirit is so light that I feel almost as though I can float on a cloud, so much unlike how I felt (overloaded and dragged down) when I first began these sessions."
Her success from the Self Analysis Book Course: "I would suggest this course to everyone, both involved in Scientology and others. My mood has been so much more positive. I am alert and aware. The memories that once haunted me are no longs so frightening or painful. I have had the most wonderful experience of remembering my mothers, of whom I have only had one memory for the past 39 years. I am feeling confident in myself and my abilities. I look forward to further Self Analysis."
Mark just completed the Dianetics Book and Lecture Course and has this to say:
"This is the second time I've read Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and I totally love the updated version. Having the questions on the new course really made me apply the data and the lectures made better sense. I have a better understanding of what Dianetics is and what it actually does to change a person."
Joellen finished the Life Improvement Course, Personal Values and Integrity. Here is her success story: "This course is great. Basically it's how one thing leads to another in the Big Picture! Being honest, ethical and moreal maintains the dynamics. simple, huh?"

Marc Silber SeminarGet to Know Your Camera
December 8th at 12:30
Marc began taking photographs in the 1960s, starting his career in photography at the legendary Peninsula School where he eagerly learned composition and darkroom skills. He took frequent trips with camera to the mountains and the coast, falling in love with the beauty and the spirit of the Sierra and the California coast. Through his images he has been able to capture the expression of the spirit, each telling a story, whether of the spirit of nature or the spirit of the individual.
Marc studied the works of masters such as Ansel Adams, the Westons and Henri Cartier-Bresson but quickly forged his own unique style and quality.
He honed his skills at the celebrated San Francisco Art Institute. Founded in 1871, the Art Institute is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of higher education in art and photography in the United States. The Art Institute’s photography department was founded by no less than Ansel Adams and Minor White.
Silber’s work covers a full range from action shots, to candid portraits to landscapes. His series from the Sierra Madre, Mexico gives us a rare glimpse into the remote mountain region above Mazatlan, days by jeep and foot. He tells of the people being so grateful for the medical help that his project brought that he was allowed to photograph and capture their life in a completely intimate manner.
Though Marc moves through his fifth decade as a professional photographer he is still constantly exploring approaches, styles and projects.
Marc is a senior Scientologist as well as an accomplished public speaker and loves to teach photography through his workshops and published works. Often his workshops have accompanied his exhibits, with excellent reviews.
Shown here is a photo of the carousel in the Tuileries Gardens in Paris, taken on a recent trip. To see more of Marc's work and find out more about him and his artistic philosophy, visit his website: SilberStudios.com.

This is a basic non-religious course teaching ethics for a child to understand. Here's his success:
"I feel happy that I finished this. I know all the good things I am supposed to do and the bad things I'm not supposed to do. Since I have done this course I can use it and not commit overts. I am happy I did my course."
Robert has completed the Fundamentals of Thought Book Course! Here is his poetic success story:
"I have just completed this course with a new glow of light indicating that I can now go back out into this physical universe and help make man create a better image in this day and time of global disruption."

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health is an advance of such magnitude, that The New York Times compared it to man’s discovery of fire and the wheel.
Dianetics contains a revolutionary easy-to-apply technique by which a person can GET RID of their reactive mind (the “invisible” storehouse of recorded painful experiences which react on you like post-hypnotic commands).
Our experienced Dianetics Auditors can locate and remove mental blocks that stand in the way of your self-confidence and success. This is not psychology or “therapy.” It is an exact process that reveals the hidden sources of pain, nervousness, unwanted behavior patterns, psychosomatic illness, negative emotions, depression and much more. Dianetics addresses the unwanted stops in your life that are holding you back from reaching your fullest potential.
Here is Dennis' success story: "Where did that burden go? And all that stress and worry? I feel more clarity about my sense of people around me. I have more focus. Somehow my world seems so much bigger now - many more choices. I know that I am choosing more things to do of my own choosing. I am finding that there are things that I am re-evaluating as to having or not having to do that I always thought I had to do."

"With every Grade so far I've regained more ability to be free - especially with Grade II. It was long and every day was a new 'adventure' but in the end I have a better sense of cause and effect. I'm willin to expand and reach into life without much effort and with more knowingness."

"I definitely feel more informed, better prepared to handle problems relative to work aboard my 'ship' (home) and do highly recommend this course to all who work in this society. A Great Course!!"
Evan has been studying the Problems of Work book on the Basic Book Course. Here's what he has to say so far:
"I have been having fun with this course. It is really a lot easier to read this book now and I get the information better. I have been clearing up some confusions I have had on control so that's good."
Anyone can do this course - there are no prerequisites. Don't wait!

"I got some data on how to start a business. Going over the non-existence formula helped me to gain certainty and actually do the next step in starting a business." LM
"I felt like I really understand business better - how to get stuff going and keep in moving and what happens if things go down and how to change it." JB

"I am having a lot of realizations on the Problems of Work Course! It is crazy to me how simple the data is, but yet so powerful. I already feel totally different at my job and also in life. It's not really like being on a course; it's more like just reading a super good book. I am having a lot of fun!"

I plan on moving forward with positive results in life. By doing this course I hope to eliminate roller-coastering, which is moving up and down emotionally and physically."

The Problems of Work Course:
"Wow! I cannot express just how enlightening this has been for me. Just during the reading of this book I have begun to apply the basics of good control and have been quite successful. My employees have become more productive and my employer has become more satisfied." RW
Self Analysis Book Course
“I feel a new understanding about life and how I can control it. I really understand survival and how to survive on a prosurvival level. It is so easy to understand and put into use. Thanks Ron.” SA
Fundamentals of Thought Book Course
“I’m reading about Reality – that it is simply agreement which you can reach with anyone with enough communication. And I realized just how powerful that is. We literally get to control and create our reality by simply reaching agreements with others on what it is. That is the joy of creating from yet another viewpoint. Just decide what you want, get agreement, and then, enjoy!” JH

"This was really cool. It really handled a bunch of things for me on the subject of cause: being cause or being an effect. I was able to feel relief from both - things I have caused another and things another has caused me. I also found that I am less afraid to be cause and more willing to be cause. Before I was afraid of what might happen. This was a good grade. I feel lots less withheld to since I cleaned up that area. Thanks to my auditor, my case supervisor and Ron.

"After my session it kept hitting me what had happened in my session. My win just kept on going. What I spotted really is the first time I started thinking, 'there must be something wrong with me.' and let me tell you I have had that thought many times, on a physical and mental aspect. It was really interesting that once I spottedwhat had happened and where I got that from, the whole thing blew! It's really hard to put into words what happened. Words just don't do this kind of win justice. Dianetics really is simple and it works."

And while my wins on a personal level are huge and could fill up pages, what I look forward to most is using this new certainty and knowledge at the mission. I feel we now actually have a way to impart this incredible religion of ours to new public straight from Ron like never before. I know my ability to help others has increased ten-fold already and that this increased personal certainty will make me more effective at creating new Scientologists – and that’s what it’s all about!
"I used all the tools I have learned on this course. The auditing is good and should be done every day for good results. I'm able to communicate better and feel more comfortable in my life. I'm doing good and ready to keep going up the Bridge!"

Ron says, "The object of the rundown is to clear up any confusions on the subject of morals, any and all transgressions against these specific morals, to slide the person out of the valence of any immoral person and obtain an EP (end phenomena) of a realization that one really is on the Way to Happiness."
Jenna said in her success story, "Before I did this, I would always tell myself that I was going to do things to help myself. They would never happen. Now I feel like I can do everything in order to be as happy as possible."

Solution: People think that persuasion works with children. It doesn’t. It’s communication that does the trick. You say, “Well, it’s time for you to go to bed now,” and he says, “No.” Don’t stay on the subject. Leave it alone and just talk about something else, “What did you do today?” “Where?” “How?” “Oh, did you? Is that a fact?” “Well, how about going to bed?” and the answer will be “Okay.”
One doesn’t have to use force. Go into communication with the child, and control follows this as an inevitability. Omit control from the beginning when bringing up a child and he who looks to you for a lot of his direction and control is gypped. He thinks you don’t care about him.For further help on this subject, get the Scientology Handbook Booklet, Children.

"I really love going through this grade. Among my many wins, the greatest one that I had was knowing that I can completely and fully face my future knowing that things might change or not always go rihgt but that still, in the end, I would be cause over it and be able to handle whatever it is and move on!"

Solution: Next time you have a fight, each of you should take a walk around the block—going in opposite directions. When you meet, you should be feeling friendlier. Continue the walking till you’ve both calmed down.Then to prevent fights in the future, practice good communication skills—really listen to each other and acknowledge what the other person has to say. And actually, the real reason that relationships get messed up is because of secrets between the two of you. So, don’t do something that you wouldn’t want your partner to find out about. You won’t believe the difference.

Yassini completed Personal Values and Integrity course and says, “In this entire course I have learned that with anything you do there is cause and effect—or before you do anything always think about it then. In order to keep or maintain all the dynamics it is very important. to do what is right for individuals and others and most comes from clear thinking. Finally, through the dealing with the course supervisor, we were able to discuss more. So my success in this course is I’m going to be true to myself and others. It will help me to better my life.”

Avalon completed an Expanded Objectives Program and said, "I feel able to be in present time and really be aware of everything around me. Even though I thought that I wouldn't get tons out of this program, I did. And I feel great! :)
Avalon also completed a full Advance Program as well (a program that gets a person fully ready for full progress in further auditing) and had this to say, "I feel more aware and exteriorized on a daily basis. I feel good and I feel that everything before this point on my Bridge is now fully completed. I feel ready to continue on with my Bridge and continue on with having wins that help my life."
Margot completed the Personal Efficiency Course and said, "I have learned many things in this course. One of my favorite things I learned is ARC (affinity-reality-communication). I learned how they're all connected. For example, if my sister and I disagreed on what TV channel to watch, our reality would go down. We would start to argue and our affinity would go down. But, if we started talking and solving our fight, all the corners of the triangle would go up. By knowing all this, I get along (or at least have the ability to) with my sister a lot better.
"I also learned about cycles of action and reviewed the 8 dynamics. I think the most important thing I learned about was auditing. I learned how it's done, why it's done and how it helps a person become happy and successful. I even got to co-audit which ended up being my favorite part of the course...Co-auditing helped me understand auditing and have a lot of fun. I just thought it was so cool that asking simple questions could make a person's tone level go up so quickly.
"I learned a lot and totally and completely enjoyed this course. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone."
