About Scientology

Mr. Hubbard continued his research after releasing Dianetics in 1950 and made many additional discoveries about the mind, the nature of Man and his relationships with others and the world around him, including that Man is actually a spiritual being and has innately great potential. 

Scientology is from scio (Latin) “knowing, in the fullest sense of the word,” and logos (Greek) “study of.”  Scientology is for use for anyone who wants to improve their lives and the lives of others.

Developed by L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a twenty-first century religion that welcomes people of all creeds and faiths. It comprises a vast body of knowledge extending from certain fundamental truths, and prime among those truths: Man is a spiritual being endowed with abilities well beyond those which he normally envisions. He is not only able to solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness, but he can achieve new states of awareness he may never have dreamed possible.

In Scientology, fundamentals laws of life have been isolated and a workable technology developed that you can use to improve the conditions of your life and to help others. It has exact, precise methods to increase a person’s capabilities, happiness and potential.

At the Mission of the Foothills we offer Scientology auditing (counseling) and courses. An auditor is defined as one who listens, from the Latin audio meaning "to hear or listen." The auditor uses exact questions or directions to help a person locate areas of distress, find out things about themselves and improve their condition. We also have a full bookstore of Scientology books and audiovisual materials. To learn more about Scientology, click here or check out these related links.
