Life Improvement Course Success

Joellen completed the Life Improvement Course, Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. Here is what she had to say, "I have learned to name and recognize anti-social behavior and know that positive people are social behavior type people. I will apply this knowledge by simply being more aware of those people around me and with whom I associate.
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."

Basics Courses Successes

The Mission is now delivering the Basics Books and Lectures Courses! Here are a few of the wins our students are having on just a few of these courses:

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

Grade II Auditing Completion

Scientology Expanded Grades consist of a series of auditing processes which restore to the individual specific abilities and lay a strong foundation for more advanced auditing. Expanded Grade II is also called "Relief Release" because the auditing on this level brings relief to a person from the hostilities and sufferings of life. Eric, Mission Executive and Professional Auditor, just completed this Grade and has this to say:
"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.

Emotional Tone Scale Course

Roni just completed the Scientology Handbook course on the Emotional Tone Scale. Here's what she has to say, "Wow! Simply knowing the tone level of a person can make my personal and business life much easier. Not to mention that being able to spot a tone level and going uptone by just a small amount may just be the way to help another - the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. Incredible! It's as simple as that! Thanks, guys and gals."

These courses mark a first in the history of Scientology. Each book and companion lecture series has its own individual course checksheet and pack. Studying these Books and Lectures in the Mission means you'll know them as part of you.
