Leaving Scientology: 'I think this recovery is something I'll be doing the rest of my life' - 2015-05-01
Once again we're featuring Chris Shelton today. He's one of the more recent defectors from Scientology's Sea Org, and he's been doing a great service explaining his experience, and Scientology itself, in a series of videos.
He sent us a new video that addresses an issue we've also talked about with Jefferson Hawkins and Jon Atack. After finally deciding to leave Scientology's "matrix of thought" (as Jason Beghe put it in Going Clear), how long does it take to recover from L. Ron Hubbard's mental implants?
We think you'll enjoy hearing from Shelton on this issue. As he points out, when you get in as deep as a Sea Org member does, you may be recovering from Scientology for the rest of your life. But that doesn't mean it has to be a burden. As he's found out (and many others we've spoken to), life can be grand when you start over again from scratch. Give Chris's talk a listen and let us know what you think of it...
