We are posting some videos here as a first introduction to Chris Shelton who recently left the Sea Org.
In his own words, (published on Mike Rinder’s blog in February this year) he says:
“I spent my entire adult life as a professional Scientology staff member. I started taking classes when I was 15 and joined staff at the age of 17. I joined the Sea Organization when I was 25 and stayed in until I was 43.
I trained as a Pro Course Supervisor and Word Clearer, Class 0 Auditor and Purification Rundown In-Charge. I also trained as a Data Series Evaluator and Org Manager, amongst many other things. I completed all of The Basics books and lectures after they were released in 2006, as well as the LRH Congresses and a panoply of other lectures and materials (including many issues that public may never see as they were “confidential Sea Org references” concerning management and administration). When it comes to Scientology and Sea Organization policy and tech, I can unequivocally state that I am an expert.”

In the first two videos, Chris was interviewed by Karen De La Carriere earlier this year – he describes the exact mechanism behind the failure of the Ideal Org campaign, which he was integrally involved in. These videos are equally applicable to what is happening in South Africa right now with the “Ideal Org Alliance”.
The next 5 videos are a series called “What is wrong with Scientology” in which Chris addresses pertinent non-optimum issues existing in the Church. They are concise, simple, very easily understood, and certainly give food for thought.
Although not specific to South Africa, these videos are applicable to all Scientologists everywhere – whether in or out of the Church. They are also a perfect tool to forward to anyone you know that may be starting to “look”.
