    Before I go into the story of my adventures in attending and presenting at the Getting Clear Conference in Toronto last week, I want to post a nice video Tory Christman did about it as well as provide some photos that have been posted on Facebook. You may or may not have seen these before but I find them to be representative of the many wonderful heroes and heroines who attended.

    First, lets hear from Tory:


    Here is a group shot posted by Tory:

    "Some of the many wonderful people who came to the "Going Clear" Conference in Toronto, Canada last week! — with Spike Robinson, Jon Atack, Pete Griffiths, James Beverley, David T Pike, Andreas Heldal-Lund and Gerry Armstrong in Toronto, Ontario."

    I believe that Pete Griffiths posted this classic photo:

    Jon Atack, Pete Griffiths and Gerry Armstrong

    Chris Shelton took and posted this photo on June 22nd:

    "Pete Griffiths lounging about between sets. — with Pete Griffiths."

    This is an excellent photo posted by Pete : Jamie DeWolf, Leif DeWolf and Pete Griffiths!

    Note that this is the first time this terrific man named Leif DeWolf, who just happened to also be L. Ron Hubbard's grandson and Jamie DeWolf's Uncle, has ever come out publicly in support of what we critics are doing. :thumbsup: Miscavige must be going nuts!

    Not sure who posted this but it's a terrific shot of Jesse Prince and Pete Griffiths!


    Tony O posted some wonderful photos up on the Bunker but he's got it set up so they cannot be linked to directly here. You can see them at the below article links.

    I will post some more tomorrow and then begin a post about my experiences there, arriving after the 3rd day of the 5 day event as one of the guest speakers on Narconon, and meeting so many wonderful people, especially our beloved Churchill ( The one and only Len Zinberg! ) Until tomorrow...

    There are various narratives that exist about Hubbard and Scientology.

    This, however, is the truth that Scientology has tried to cover-up with a half-century of lies.

    Thank you, Professor Beverley and Jon Atack, and all who spoke.

    Prepare to laugh, but bring a box of tissues, too.

    UPDATE: Tony's article had been corrected to include some of the following:

    In order to get the $90 reduced fee for the whole set up until the 26th, one needs to put in a Promo Code of GC90 to secure the price. This code may apply only in U.S. If outside the US, write Jim at [email protected] and he will work out discount for those in other countries.

    Here is a link to a thread for information on renting the videos.

    Personal note:

    I must say that I am impressed with the quality of the videos.. and of course the content, for which I am watching as time allows... The fee for renting them covers a 6 month time period in which to watch them.
    With so many amazing speakers and combination of speakers on various topics, it's hard to decide which to choose next to watch! :thumbsup:
