What is the Association of Professional Independent Scientologists?
"When an individual is not permitted to be fully a part of the team he is apt to choose other members of the team as his opponents for, remember, man must have a game."
THE PROBLEMS OF WORK: Lafayette Ron Hubbard
The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS) has been created to assist scientologists and non-scientologists alike to practice and persue their chosen philosophy as developed by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
It consists of members who may be simply individuals wishing to improve and enhance their life, or auditors (An auditor is a practitioner of the technology who listens and assists people to improve their life through various practical activities) or groups of auditors:
The purposes of APIS) are to:
Preserve the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard for future use so it is available for all mankind.
Promote the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it may be known by all mankind.
Protect the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it is not altered, diluted or changed in anyway but remains exactly as Lafayette Ron Hubbard issued it.
Foster, promote and develop fellowship and mutual aid among the IFA members within the framework of the constitution.
Establish communication and understanding among the members of the IFA and members of other communities.
Promote and sponsor educational activities that alert and teach the general public about the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
Defend the IFA from any attempt to inhibit its existence and expansion from any quarter.
Assist in the defense of any of it's members in the event of any unwarranted legal process to the detriment of the member on the basis of the member's exercising their legal religious right to practice the technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
Mediate in any disputes between members when requested but such mediation subject to standard ethics and justice policies as were originally issued by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
Membership of APIS is by application only. Membership application and fees are available from the http://independent-scientologists-association.net/
As part of the benefits for its members APIS has set up a Technical Support Centre to assist Auditors and PCs in the field including:
Programming: Setting out the correct sequence of steps that a Preclear must take to progress to spiritual freedom.
FESing: A thorough study of a PC's folders to locate any errors.
Flub Catch: An FES, including standard repair and advance programs, with correction of any errors made by the auditors and C/Ses.
Quality Assurance: Monitoring the activities of auditors to ensure the standard of delivery remains high. This is accomplished through tape and video critiques of TRs and metering, as well as folder reviews and flub catches.
Ethics Programs: A sequence of steps to help a PC handle life situations that may be blocking their progress to spiritual freedom.
A comprehensive LRH reference section as part of preserving and promoting the technology complete with a search facility especially designed for Auditors and PCs.
A Communication Line for pcs to locate auditors they can feel safe with and who they know will apply LRH original technology to their case.
A legal support system for individuals, auditors and groups members subject to unwarranted attacks and hassles.
The knowledge that, despite what any other groups or church does, the technology is still being preserved and available.
Each member, although a member, is still an individual. There is no intrusion into a member's life or any dictatorial approach as to how one should live or be. The only criterion is "Has the member agreed to the Constitution and Terms of Service? and do they adhere to the standards of application as set out by L Ron Hubbard" If so the person can become a member. There is no, "we don't like you because of this or that", no holding one's past against one or attitudes of cut communication lines, exclusions or stops on the lines. Our interest is in the future, and in pursuing our purposes as packaged in the motto, "reservo, servo, proveho" meaning, Preserve, Protect & Promote.
The purpose then is to keep the technology sound and being applied and to be able to support and offer succor to those who apply it in the Freezone.
Lafayette Ron Hubbard first issued the 'Aims of Scientology' which of course still stands. Yet, despite holding a copyright on these aims the Church of Scientology, RTC and the CST do not appear to be following these aims fully. Therefore it behooves us to take some responsibility and set out our aims, based upon the aims that Ron first envisaged as something which we can honestly strive to attain.
