The excitement of the Basics is still coursing throughout the Scientology world as more and more people get started onto Basics courses and more and more are completing them.
I did an attest on one last night who was not, previously, one of the fastest students around and he completed ahead of almost all of the pack! So these courses are obviously not difficult to do!
I am over half way through Science of Survival myself (just reading in my spare time) and finding that use of the data in spotting people's tone levels is almost automatic. I had some great success this past week using it in handling a potentially expensive situation for someone, by simply correctly spotting the tone levels of the individuals involved and then handling their communications from that standpoint. All turned out well and optimum across everyone's dynamics.
Other news: 9 Kansas City Org public just left for the Freewinds for a new convention and briefing about the Ideal Org and what the next step is in getting the renovations done and the new building opened. We'll hear more in a couple weeks when they return.
This coming weekend is the Santa-Cali-Gon in Independence. This is the big celebration of the convergence of the Santa Fe, California and Oregon trails heading west years ago, always celebrated over Labor Day weekend. We'll have the VM tent up and anyone wanting to spend some time at the tent helping out should contact Al Adriance at the org, (816)753-6590.
Then, next weekend, there is a big fair in Olathe and the VM tent will be set up there as well, and I'm sure Al is looking forward to volunteers for that venue, too.
Then, the weekend after that, on Saturday the 15th of September, we are celebrating Auditor's Day. The event will be at the new building and you will get to hear the stories of some of the top producing auditors locally as well as across the globe. Our Freewinds contingent should be back by then so I'm sure we will be getting a bit of an update from them as well.
So mark your calendars and start making plans to attend!
