Marty: A Course in Graduating from Scientology
https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2013/12/30/a-course-in-graduating-from-scientology/

Given recent vicissitudes in these parts it is not practicable for me to be hosting visitors and engaging in lengthy, uninterruptible sessions. Yet, the desire for guided tours out of the Scientology philosophical labyrinth continues to be expressed. I have come up with a solution that may be workable given current conditions and apropos given the evolution of what we do. As noted recently, in essence my coaching or counselling has focused more on connecting dots to get people out of the ‘why trap’ Scientology has so effectively ensnared them into.

I am offering a Graduating from Scientology correspondence course. It is designed for:

-Those who are Clear or higher on the Scientology grade chart and are not planning on doing any more Scientology OT levels.

-Those who find Scientology still occupies their attention and somehow holds them back from moving on with doing and experiencing new things.

-Those having difficulty correlating the gains they did get from Scientology with the outside world and other philosophies and religions.

-Those wishing to continue with spiritual growth, but who do not want to start from square zero.

The course is organized by reading assignments followed by one to one discussions after each venture. I call them ventures (Oxford Dict. Definition: a risky or daring journey or undertaking) not because of any real danger. I am simply highlighting the risk that Scientology contends faces people when they are invited to face and use their minds – something Hubbard once gratefully acknowledged Freud for discovering was not in fact dangerous. The apparent daring or risk involved is simple – if Scientology is the only road to ultimate freedom, and Hubbard really is the unforgiving God set forth so strongly in Scientology policy, there will be hell to pay for those venturing along such a path. Follow up discussions after each venture will be conducted by e-mail, phone and/or skype as appropriate to the venture and individual.

The course does not prescribe a particular ology, ism, or path. Instead, it is designed to equip an individual to choose and blaze his own way. The course does seek to make sense of Scientology at the upper levels and to understand what in actual fact Hubbard was attempting to address. In that regard, following through with the full course requires a fair amount of study assignments. That might be desirable to those who entered Scientology with the intention of learning the secrets of the woof and warp of the universe, but gave up when they recognized Scientology would not truly reveal them. For others not so inclined, you may want to hang for the first several ventures which culminate in a break point that is called ‘Cutting To The Chase.’ It might be that you by then hit a point where Scientology is sufficiently contextualized for you that you can let it go and move on. Others who find it simply uninteresting or lacking in other respects are free to drop out at any stage.

The only pre-requisite is that the participant has read What Is Wrong With Scientology?: Healing Through Understanding, The Scientology Reformation, and Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior.

In order to participate, simply set up a hushmail.com account and reach out to me at [email protected].

Donations are voluntary on the basis of what each individual considers each venture was worth.

Scientology still strikes me as something from which you get paroled rather than something from which you graduate.

Parole is granted by a controlling authority, i.e., a court, for a criminal event. In the case of Scientology, the controlling authority, it cannot grant parole since it is all about control, nothing more, nothing less.

Scientology is inescapable, except that one simply flees on ones own volition, and never looks back, no matter the price. There are hundreds of testimonies on ESMB that clearly show that one has to have the bravado to flee the kult, no matter the personal price paid, and never looking back.

I think it is finally hitting home to Marty that the pool of "Exes who still want to use the tech to fix things" is actually REALLY SMALL!

I wish we could find out how many books he has sold. This "Graduating from Scn Course" strikes me as a ploy to sell more books (his books).

I predict that in 2014....if and when Mosey & Marty get any money out of the lawsuit, he will close his blog and move away, and that will be the end of Marty World. Still, it's been interesting to watch his evolving state of mind over the last few years.
