Inside the Church of Scientology August 02, 2013
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard taught that we can rid our minds of unwanted memories, and ultimately transcend the boundaries of matter, energy, space, and time. Through spiritual counseling called auditing, we can overcome the limits we impose on ourselves, becoming "Clear."

This is the promise of Scientology, the religion founded in 1952. A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist explains Scientology's beliefs, and uncovers new alleged abuse by its leader, David Miscavige. From February 2013.

Read the response from the Church of Scientology, and from the publisher of 'Going Clear," Alfred A. Knopf
