Scientology ecstasy: 'I have no idea where I would be right now without NED' - 2019-08-31
Scientology publications can be such goldmines. Once again, we've received a copy of the "Connect" newsletter from the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, and the latest edition features a graduation speech that is out of this world.
Now, maybe we should be alarmed by some of the statements by graduate Phoenix Mori, who apparently had been leading a fairly messed-up existence, waking up each morning and wondering why she had ever been born, for example. But hey, she's now a NED graduate and life has never been better!
NED is not, sadly, a reference to the Simpsons character Ned Flanders, but to the Scientology process New Era Dianetics, which was first introduced in 1978. Says our tech expert, Sunny Pereira: "NED is the streamlined version of Book One/Dianetics auditing. It takes many intensives of auditing to complete. It is a series of rundowns addressing everything that 'aberrates' a person. The goal of NED auditing is to make a Clear. Some don't have the Clear cognition and they attest to 'NED Case completion,' a 'well and happy preclear.' The next step for that person is called the Alternate Clear route and is only done at Advanced Orgs or ASHOs. NED auditing is done at any org or mission anywhere."
