|Ability: Start That Practice!|
|Field Staff Member Practices|
I was a Field Auditor and Field Staff Member in the early to mid 1990s, while training on the new Saint Hill Special Briefing Course at Flag. I studied the article below and applied it to my field practice in Clearwater.
Since leaving Scientology in 1999, I have continued to study Hubbard's materials from a critical perspective and do not practice any form of Scientology or Dianetics counseling. Scientology cannot improve life.

Start That Practice!
Here’s a new successful way to start a practice!
All over the world auditors are succeeding. However, in some areas we understand there are auditors who can’t seem to get going. In one particular area we have heard that some auditors were working at regular jobs. What a waste! In a world without assistance, real honest assistance from anyone but Dianeticists and Scientologists, the waste of ability in these lines is practically criminal!
There’s no lack of willingness on the part of these auditors. It’s finance. They can’t seem to get paying preclears. And to keep on eating they go to work.
Well, we’ve got the solution to that. We’ve been running a pilot project right here in Washington and although we haven’t gotten it all the way through, the auditor we assigned this project to has now begun to look for an assistant and he has turned over a pc to the Guidance Center.
PERSONAL RELATIONS: I will talk to anyone for you about anything. Call GR 5-8906 between 4 and 6 p.m. Reverend Charles Gringle, Church of Scientology, 1899 Nevada St.
Putting in the auditor’s home phone (getting an answering service also if you want) and his own name we are now ready to go. The ad should run Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at least or seven a week if you can afford it.
You have to hand, however, literature about Scientology. And you have, of course, your pro card (which gives your minister’s rating) and this should read, this professional card:
The Rev. Charles Gringle, HCA
GR 5-8906 452 Fro St.
And you have another card:
CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY
The Reverend Charles Gringle
Meeting every Sunday Morning at
1899 Nevada Street
at 10 A.M.
Repair the ravages of the week
with Scientology services
Keep that “Church of Scientology” in the ads so there’s always a trademark on the stunt and it can’t be pushed into by some untrained quack psychologist or Commie psychiatrist.
Actually run that church!
All right, you’ll learn fast when you start it.
You need this to begin. Your ordination must be in good order. With an HCA you can get that from the Founding Church. Its cost is now $18.00. You had better have one from the Founding Church or the Church of American Science or the Church of Scientology.
Make sure you have a Church Charter. Write in to the Founding Church at 1845 “R” Street, N.W. and make your application.
If you want we’ll send you literature. We have a handout piece at the printers into which you stamp your name and address and which advertises nothing else but you.
When you’ve got these, run your ad and begin. Don’t run your ad unless you’ve got the above straight.
Now the press will contact you. The Code of a Scientologist on the subject of the press is explicit. No interviews.
BUT sooner or later make sure you do all you can to get yourself or your group a TV spot or a radio spot to talk about the calls for help you get and keep it going steadily. Press is a via. Radio and TV are straight communication, relatively speaking. So whatever you do don’t, particularly now, fall away from that Code of a Scientologist and always act within the area of Ability Major 1, “The Scientologist—A Manual on the Dissemination of Material” which you can get from the HASI for $1.00.
