Church of Scientology of Phoenix Aarizona
The Pluralism Project put up at page about the Church of Scientology of Phoenix, Arizona.
Phoenix is a very important in Scientology history. L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, lived in Phoenix for some time in the early 1950's. It was here that he created the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International (a precurser to the current membership organization - the International Association of Scientologists) and where he conducted a great deal of his research into the spiritual nature of man.
L. Ron Hubbard issued the Creed of the Church of Scientology from his office in Phoenix.
L. Ron Hubbard also recorded his famous "Phoenix Lectures" here. These have been described as follows: "In 1954, L. Ron Hubbard was living in Phoenix, Arizona, where he conducted a series of courses for advanced students. In this single year he delivered more than 450 recorded lectures. The object of this intense activity was the achievement of a goal as old as man himself — the freeing of the human spirit."
The first Narconon was established with the help of the Church of Scientology of Phoenix. Naroconon is a very effective (78% success rate in most cases) drug rehab program that uses the discoveries L. Ron Hubbard made into the cause of addiction xand how to help a person overcome drug dependency (not learn to live with it or "realize" that you will always be an addict - no -- change that condition.
The current Church of Scientology of Phoenix has found new premises which they will be moving to shortly.
