Nashville, TN (PressExposure) May 02, 2012 -- Constantly we are met with life's horror stories - murder, drug abuse, sexual abuse, theft, assault. It happens so much we can become numb and feel these are "part of life" or "normal" occurrences. Are they? Or better yet, do they have to be? What makes people sink so low to commit inhumane actions such as these? What makes them violate their wedding vows and drink themselves to oblivion? And what is the source of all our fears, nightmares and stress?
Over the last two years, people from Nashville and surrounding areas have found answers to these questions and more. And what's better, they have been trained in highly effective techniques to resolve those conditions. It's all happened at the Hubbard Dianetics Foundation, a department within the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville.
Dianetics is defined as "what the soul is doing to the body through the mind," and the subject explains how the mind contains a hidden influence that will cause individuals to perform the most insane acts. The techniques of Dianetics were developed by L. Ron Hubbard in the early part of the last century and presented to the world in 1950 in the bestselling self-help book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
While Dianetics is nearing sixty years old, this Dianetics seminar is still new. "It helped me deal with something that was very hard," said one attendee, describing an incident that occurred when he was very young, "My dad was killed. Only an hour later I found out my brother was killed also... [this] made me very angry and bitter about a lot of things in life as far as trust was concerned. It was my dad's best friend that killed them both. It was very hard for me at first - I had very bad nightmares and dreams... but I could never truly get the answers to help me confront this problem. The Dianetics Seminar helped me open up and see that I can live a clear life and mind. I know it works. I know it really works."
The Dianetics Seminar is based on the book and a video series, How to Use Dianetics, consisting of 18 short films which illustrate specific Dianetics principles and techniques. With these films, people new to the subject can easily learn what to expect from a Dianetics session and how to help another using this technology. "The seminar not only helps people become aware of the cause of their problems, but also the ability to handle it," says Rick Dewitt, who directs the seminars.
Following the presentation of the first of these films, those attending the seminar immediately put the materials to use, working with other attendees to apply the techniques right there on the spot. Supervised by trained Dianetics specialists, the seminar participants gain first-hand experience with just how easy it is to resolve the difficulties and pain that life leaves in its wake. Church pastor Rev. Brian Fesler says, "Many people have finished this seminar over the last two years, and I want everyone to experience the benefits of Dianetics. It's not just for members of my church-anyone can benefit from this."
