homeWHERE TO GET HELP: There are now two avenues for Scientology services. Find out what to expect and what...

Independent Scientology represents a simple answer to a man who thought he could monopolize and corporatize spiritual existence. That simple answer is "NO!"

For Scientologists leaving the Church it all begins with waking up and coming to one's senses as to the actual condition of the Church. For new people who have had the good fortune never to have entered a Church of Scientology, welcome.

The "business model" for Independent Scientology is entirely build upon the concept of volunteerism and initiative. Independent Scientology is grassroots and community-based. It is not an organization, it is a movement. It is not an organized religion, it is a spiritual awakening that believes the final authority on the spiritual evolvement of any one individual is the individual himself. If you cannot be your own leader within Independent Scientology you have not arrived.

We have a great deal of discoveries and technology. But all of that was intended to do one thing: place YOU in control of your own life. So the best time to start is now.


Church of Scientology

The Church of Scientology was founded by L. Ron Hubbard in the early 1950s.  David Miscavige took over in the early 1980s. Since then about 99% of their members have left the Church, mostly in protest over human rights abuses (like human trafficking and forced abortion), criminality (like embezzlement and fraud) and corruption (like extorting huge sums of money from parishioners under duress and attacking the reputations of whistle blowers).

They hunger to see you. Especially if you have any money.

They have their own Gestapo called the Office of Special Affairs that conducts surveillance and harrassment on whistleblowers, especially Marty Rathbun.


Moving On Up a Little Higher

Mark "Marty" C. Rathbun was Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center, the organization that controls the copyrights and trademarks of the materials relating to Dianetics and Scientology. This is his blog.

Launched in early 2009, Moving On Up a Little Higher publishes the daily news of Independent Scientology as we confront and expose the sordid crimes and abuses of David Miscavige and his supporters within the Church of Scientology. If it happens in Independent Scientology, you'll hear about it here.

Marty's blog has been — since its inception — the most effective agency in history, getting Ethics in on one of the most corrupt corporations in history. Featuring postings by Marty and guest bloggers like Mike Rinder, with the latest resignations from Scientologists leaving the Church of Scientology, this is the spear point at the forefront of Independent Scientology.

When the sparks fly, they always fly here.


Launched in December 2008, Scientology-cult was the first website where eye-witnesses to David Miscavige's corruption spoke out as Scientologists to decry the crimes and abuses of David Miscavige and his supporters.

Averaging more than 2,000 visitors a day, this dominant whistle-blowing website was designed to be a "multiple viewpoint system" to enable government officials, law enforcement and the media who were unfamiliar with Church of Scientology crimes to get an accurate understanding of what the Church has been doing and who is behind it, by seeing the situation through the eyes of those on the ground.

It was also designed as a platform for running out the "group engram" of the destruction of the Church of Scientology by David Miscavige. Scientology-cult was named using what was at the time, the #2 most popular search phrase on the subject: "scientology cult." A cult is, of course, a criminal enterprise that operates as a religion.

The website contains more than 450 articles, videos and "knowledge reports" from reliable eye-witnesses to DM criminality. Here too is the popular Indie 500 list, designed to break the back of political disconnection used by the Church of Scientology to silence whistle blowers and stifle the exposure of crimes and abuse. The site is today the #1 site for its primary search term. And is generally within the top 20 websites on the subject of "David Miscavige."


Rediscover Scientology

RediscoverScientology features selected articles from and Marty's blog as an introduction to Church of Scientology criminality for people already in the Church. Scientologists can start here and graduate to Scientology-cult or Moving On Up a Little Higher for the full-blown facts.

It is the little sister of Scientology-cult for Scientologists who still have an ingrained aversion to the word “cult.” For the record, the only reason the Church is a cult today is because David Miscavige made it into a cult for financial gain.


Free and Able

Free and Able is a solution to economic warfare waged by David Miscavige against ex members of the Church of Scientology. If David Miscavige orders his lynch mob to string someone up, we can cut that economic noose by forming ourselves into a professional network of free and able individuals, helping each other to flourish and prosper. The website is based on a principle from an LRH lecture (paraphrased here), "All I ask is this: as you move up in Scientology, remember to take Scientology with you." We can take each other up.

Scientologists inside the Church of Scientology would envy the social and professional community we have in Independent Scientology. Real friends, genuine understanding, good communication, no financial stress, no connection to toxic groups, no "police" to censor your freedoms, and no body snatchers to recruit your kids only to have them disconnect from you. Here Independent Scientologists can advertise their services, products, skills or businesses to other Indies 100% FREE of charge. Here too anyone can find an auditor, Independent Scientology training center.

The concept for Free and Able came from an article on Scientology-cult about Independent Scientologists, "We use Scientology and operate on LRH principles while remaining totally independent, free and able."


Friends of LRH

Created anonymously, states that it was created by some of the most highly-trained auditors and case supervisors in the world. Their stated purpose is the preservation of Scientology and their website is excellent. Launched in early 2009 the site was threatened by the Office of Special Affairs and ordered to shut down and turn over ALL records to the church — documents, logs, data entry sheets, applications, registration forms, billings statements or invoices, computer print-outs, disks, hard drives, etc. They did shut down while consulting a legal team and in the end discovered the site was utterly defensible. 

And so they came roaring back.


SaveScientology, another website created anonymously, claims to be created by a group of successful professionals who are highly trained in Scientology (ethics, tech and admin), OT, and who have made substantial contributions to the Church over the decades.

Its mission is to inform the Scientology community of the systematic destruction of all checks and balances put in place by LRH when he established the corporate and governing structure of Scientology organizations, and thereby to expose important vulnerabilities that can be exploited to depose Scientology's dictator and set things right.

Want auditing?



Self  Analysis (August 1951):  Possibly the best introduction to the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology. Self Analysis contains both a series of essays on the basic discoveries Ron had made up to this point in his research as well as an extensive auditing section that a person can do by themselves right at home. The book contains a special version of the Hubbard Chart of Human Evaluation and a series of tests one can do to discover where you're really at. Then, by applying the processes from the second half of the book, one is guided through a path of self-discovery. At the end, you will re-do the tests to confirm your improvement. How good can you get? These techniques have been in use for more than six decades and Ron referred to them again and again throughout his research, stating that the processes here were capable of curing any neurosis.

This is the starting point for anyone wanting auditing. You will be audited by L. Ron Hubbard himself through the pages of this book.

Find a copy in used bookstores or at,, eBay. Or you can buy a new copy from these Church of Scientology organizations (but once you give them your address they may continue to send you junk mail) Bridge Publications or New Era Publications.
