Avatar draws on wide sources to provide path to self-fulfillment - 2000-12-31
What is Avatar?
It is the brainchild of Harry Palmer, a former Scientologist who developed the course for people who desire a less expensive and shorter path to self-enlightenment than is offered by the Church of Scientology.
Scientology, founded by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, seeks to help people improve their lives through a counseling process called "auditing" which seeks to free people from past negative experiences. It has thousands of adherents worldwide, and a spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. Critics call it a cult, but members insist it is a bona fide religion.
