How to Use Handbook for Preclears

Learn how you can use this book to help yourself—by yourself. This seminar is given by Cindy Feshbach, Case Supervisor.

There are fifteen Self-processing Acts given in Handbook for Preclears. This book contains several essays giving the most expansive description of the Ideal State of Man. Discover why behavior patterns become so solidly fixed; why habits seemingly can’t be broken; how decisions long ago have more power over a person than his decisions today; and why a person keeps past negative experiences in the present. It’s all clearly laid out on the Chart of Attitudes — a milestone breakthrough that complements the Chart of Human Evaluation — plotting the ideal state of being and one’s attitudes and reactions to life. In self-processing, Handbook for Preclears is used in conjunction with Self Analysis.

Self Analysis Book Course

Dennis completed the Self Analysis Book Course. Here is his success story: "I have just completed the Self Analysis Book Course and have gained an awareness of how much I have grown and how much more potential I actually have."

The Self Analysis book takes you through your past, your potentials, your life. First, with a series of self-examinations and using a special version of the Hubbard Chart of Human Evaluation, you plot yourself on the Emotional Tone Scale. Then, applying a series of light, yet powerful processes, you embark on the great adventure of self-discovery. This book further contains embracive Dianetics® principles that answer the questions you've had, but never knew where to ask:

  • The laws of survival and abundance

  • The most embracive description of consciousness

  • Essays describing a broad array of Dianetics discoveries including time, remembering, forgetting, imagination, valences and special auditing lists for each

  • And, beyond all those revelations, self-processing lists that provide the most powerful of auditing and which can be done anywhere and at any time — uncovering the real world of you.

Attackers of the Scientology® Religion

"The secrets of a person who is evilly disposed toward his fellows are not safe around a Scientologist. The hidden motives of a group attempting the enslavement of a people are too easily penetrated by a Scientologist. And the fight against him is inspired by terror and guilt - and terror and guilt are far too weak to win against truth...
"Unfortunately, the person who does not want you to study Scientology is your enemy as well as ours. When he harangues against us to you as a 'cult,' as a 'hoax,' he or she is only saying, 'Please, please, please don't try to find me out.'....

"But Scientology is also generous, tolerant and kind. And before the breadth of its understanding and the kindness of its people, a new world can be born for anyone, a world without war, criminality or the insane.
"But also, much more personally can be born a real friendship where there was private fear before, a real family founded on mutual trust, a real marriage where its partners are united against the world, not divided from one another by hidden acts.
"Beware the person or group who fights Scientology, for that person fights truth- not the truth of natural laws, but the truth about himself.
"It's well worth knowing, we assure you."
L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology

Study Skills for Life

Study Technology®, researched and developed by L. Ron Hubbard, is a unique program enabling a student to overcome the basic barriers to studying and learning any subject, so that he can understand and retain the data which he is trying to absorb and can effectively put into application the material which he has been studying.

Study Technology is an exact system which teaches one how to learn. It includes the identification of the specific barriers to learning, the tools to help a student grasp the material being studied, and the means to organize the basic learning environment toward the attainment of better results for both the student and teacher. It can be used to create a highly efficient and self-paced learning environment. Understanding and learning to bring about an ability to apply what one has learned is fundamental to Study Technology.

Study Technology gives the student the techniques and understanding which enable him to take increased responsibility and control of his own learning process.

Brytnii completed the course, Study Skills for Life, the course for students 12 and up. which gives a student a basic grounding in Study Technology. Here's what she has to say:

"I've enjoyed this course so much. The staff made it easy for me to understand what all the barriers to study are and how I can handle them in my day-to-day life. I know this can help me."

Scientology® Personal Efficiency Course

Margot completed the Personal Efficiency Course Part 2 and here is her success story:
This course has taught me a lot of helpful information. I have learned a lot about people and the tone scale. Although I loved learning everything, my favorite part would definitely be auditing. I learned how to audit and the effects of auditing. I really enjoyed co-auditing. I thought it was so cool when both my twin and I would always come out of a session way more energetic and cheerful - even when all we did was ask a few simple questions. This course has really helped me understand so many things and made me a happier person."
