Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

I am a Free Scientologist

For the past three years, in an effort to find others with similar goals, I have been visiting discussion groups and forums of ex-Scientologists, Independent Scientologists and dyed-in-the-wool Scientologists who are only comfortable with “pure” LRH.

Every one of these groups were formed to service the needs of people who have left the corporate Church of Scientology. Their methods and rules vary widely but in almost all of them, there are subjects that may not be discussed. The discussions are often informative but in most of these groups the emphasis is on discussion and not on improving delivery.

I have recently discovered a Facebook group, Free Scientologist, that seems to have the same orientation and goals as I do. Founded 9 months ago by Dexter Gelfand, it has a mission statement that may appeal to those who are interested in acquiring the skills to deliver superlative service to their pcs regardless of existing arbitraries established by the COS or other independent groups.

It is a closed group, but you can be added to the group by a member if you are willing to subscribe to the following mission statement as written by Dexter Gelfand:

Due to the connotations, groupings and individuations that have evolved over the years in relation to the terms “freezoner” and “independent Scientologist”, I’m electing to coin a fresh term, “free Scientologist”, devoid of the considerations of pro- and anti- CoS, pro- and anti- Marty Rathbun, Miscavige, and any and all other game-players, disaffections and allegiances, as they all stray from the basic purpose.

A free Scientologist is, simply, and only, one who actively works to accomplish, for self and others, case gain (both positive and negative) and enlightenment (knowledge and awareness of the truths of existence) through learning and applying the principles and techniques of Scientology, and/or related means, as they themselves define or see fit.

A free Scientologist’s view of what is and isn’t Scientology is subject and open to change, growth and evolution as they make their journey.

No other strictures apply to this term, as I have coined it. I am a free Scientologist, and I grant acceptance and beingness to all to whom this definition applies, without prejudice.



If you feel that this group might provide you with the opportunity you have been looking for, send me an email at oldauditor@possiblyhelpfuladvice.com

Please take care to ensure that you understand and can support this mission statement before sending me an email.

Janette, thanks for the feedback on the blog! The term “Free Scientologist” was created by Dexter Gelfand who manages the Free Scientologist group.
