Surviving Scientology Episode 24 with Claire Headley

Escape from a Cult is never easy.
In the Cult of Scientology, it has been a practice of tracking down the escapee like a hounded animal and bringing them back to the campus. This is founded on fear of what the escapee will reveal of what goes in behind the guard gates and their intense “Security” .

BBC Radio interviews Karen de la Carriere

Church of Scientology Public Relations lies again.
Lies to the BBC that Hubbard never implemented punishments that were “too Gruesome”
HCO Policy Letter of 5 January 1968, “Overfilled In-Basket, Bad News.” Hubbard said

“MAKE THE PENALTIES FOR NON COMPLIANCE AND FALSE REPORTS TOO GRUESOME TO BE FACED AND ENFORCE THEM.”

In the same issue, Hubbard also said, “It takes far more ethics and far steeper, enforced penalties to make an organization work than Scientologists have been using.”

Please listen to the last few minutes as the Church spouts their lies about un-precedented expansion ! Laughter !

Surviving Scientology Episode 23 with Maureen Bolstad

Former Sea Org member Maureen Bolstad describes her experienced the Church of Scientology’s controversial Purification Rundown. A Medical Doctor signs off that the person can do the Purif, but then, Sea Org members or staff supervise it. .Purification Rundown requires a person to be in a dry sauna five hours per day. A person must also take increasingly high daily doses of niacin until they reach a 5,000mg maximum. 
I have heard from some credible sources that there is an insistence on continuing the Purif at 5000 Niacin for some time before a person can attest they are done. This is a Miscavige Order. Often OT VIIIs who have done all the levels are re-cyled to re-do their Purifs.

Surviving Scientology Episode 22 with Claire Headley

Claire Headley recounts events from her life as a senior Sea Org executive working in the Religious Technology Center (RTC). These events were stressful, abusive, and worsened by extreme sleep deprivation. This caused Claire to lose so much weight that she believed she had cancer. These events led Claire to secretly plan her very dramatic escape from the Sea Org. 

Commanded by Captain David Miscavige, RTC can be correctly described as the “Internal Affairs” branch of the of the Church of Scientology. Miscavige his complete dictatorial control over the Church of Scientology through his invented office of “Chairman of the Board, Religious Technology Center.”
