Dianetics Seminar at University of Guam

The announcement of the first Dianetics Seminar in Guam was greeted with enthusiasm by many of the men and women who learned of the subject when the Scientology Volunteer Ministers South Pacific Goodwill Tour was on the island.

So much interest was generated in Dianetics that the Goodwill Tour arranged for Dianetics expert, Fred Gordon, to fly out from Tennessee in the U.S., to deliver the seminar in coordination with the staff of the Guam Life Improvement Center in Dededo, Guam.

The term “Dianetics,” comes from the Greek words dia, meaning “through” and nous, meaning “soul.” Dianetics is a methodology developed by L. Ron Hubbard, which can help alleviate unwanted sensations and emotions, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses. It is most accurately described as what the soul is doing to the body through the mind.

“If drivers don’t know how to drive, they have accidents,” Gordon said. “We all have a mind and we were never given the owner’s manual to operate it. So we have a world full of accidents, domestic abuse and crime.”

The application of Dianetics techniques is called “auditing.” Taken from the Latin word audire, which means, “to hear or listen,” auditing is a very unique form of personal counseling, which helps an individual look at his own existence and improves his ability. Dianetics seminars cover basic Dianetics concepts. They are oriented to practical application and results. Each person attending can partner up with another person interested in using Dianetics techniques and form what is called a co-audit: cooperative auditing in which two people learn how to audit and audit each other.

The first book on the subject, Dianetics: Modern Science of Mental Health, has sold more that 21 million copies since its first publication in 1950 and remains a publishing industry phenomenon.

  1. There’s no money to be made in Guam. People in Guam are poor. Why are they opening up this church? This is a waste of scientologist time and resources. There are better investments, that will bring in more money for the church in many other places.

  2. Thanks. Scientology and Dianetics are not about making money, whatever you might have heard. Scientology Volunteer Ministers are visiting the poorest nations and zones, where ever help is needed and where ever they can make a difference. This is what they want.
