In 2006 I became very interested in Scientology. Not for religious purposes of course but more the Tom "I'll eat the placenta!" Cruise laugh value. What follows is the communications I received. I did meet with them in London, but I'll get to that another time.

Dear Ace, I am sorry but we do not have a group in Wellington.

We can certainly be in e-mail communication from Auckland though.

From looking at the internet what would you like to do in Scientology, what interests you the most?

yours sincerely Lauren Ferriss Consultant

Hi there!

Thanks for getting back to me. I guess I would just like to more about Scientology and how it can benefit me and my loved ones.

Firstly though, what does the E-Meter do? I have seen pictures but I'm not sure what it does? Also is it possible to send a brief but concise description of Scientology?

Thanks and have a great day!

Ace..

Dear Ace, Hi there. Did you find a copy of What is Scientology in the library? Or do you want to buy one?

Scientology is knowing how to know. And being able to apply what you learn. It is only true for you once you have studied it and tried using it and seen that it works for you.

Do you ever come to Auckland?

Regards Lauren

HI Lauren,

Havent had a chance to really have a good look in the library yet, work has been hard recently and I'm almost too tired and angry at the end of the day to do anything more than sleep!

I would really like to come to Auckland to see the church(?) but time constraints have kept me with little time to do so.

Are you ever in Wellington?

Regards,

Ace

Dear Ace, Hi. May I make a suggestion.....

That is to get the Dianetics Kit and Self Analysis book. The Dianetics Kit will give you a start on understanding the reactive mind. And by using the Self Analysis book you will find that you are less easily affected by the things you have to deal with.

The Kit includes DVD, book, CDs and a Home Study Course. Cost is $89.50. Self Analysis is $33 for the Hard Cover and $29 for the big soft cover.

So only $122.50. No extra for postage.

We do take credit cards so call me on 0800 80 1950

We don't plan a trip to Wellington in the near future. Sorry.

Regards Lauren

Hi Lauren,

Thanks for the tip, it is definitaly something I will look into. In the near future if this current lifestyle I am living continues!

On a personal level I have to admit that I was once a Christian but that failed to help me achieve the inner peace I crave and require. Does Scientology have such restrictive retoric?

I was wondering, if I did come to Auckland in the near future, would it possible to attend a group meeting or the like?

Have you been a scientologist long and what made you want to follow its doctrine?

Thanks so much for staying in touch with me!!!!

Dear Ace, Hi.

In Scientology what is true for you is true for you. In other words you read a book and use what it says and only when you see it is true do you accept it.

It would definitely be possible to attend a meeting if you came to Auckland. We have a special event on the 25th March (7pm ) to celebrate our founders birthday. You would be welcome at that, or just to come in at any time.

I have been a Scientologist for many years. I first found it in 1967. And simply found it works. It gives me tools to handle life and succeed at what I want to do.

Hope to meet you soon.

Regards Lauren

Hi Lauren!

As much as I would love to attend your meeting (particualry as it Hubbards birthday - I have done some homework!) but the day of 25th March will be one of sorrow for me as my partner is moving overseas while I stay in Wellington.

I am really looking forward to meeting the group and yourself though.

Perhaps, if possible, you could send me some digital photos of the event?

Yours,

Ace.

Dear Ace, Haven't heard back from you. It certainly doesn't sound a happy time for you to put it mildly.

Do send me your address and I will mail you a copy of the Way to Happiness from me.

Dear Ace,

Did you move to London yet?

When do you think you'll be in Auckland again?

You could borrow books on Scientology from the Library.
