Help End the Drug Abuse Crisis: Learn How on the Scientology Network

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The United Nations set aside June 26 as International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking "to promote action and cooperation toward the goal of an international society free of drug abuse." And at no time has it been more urgent to do so. The Scientology Network marks the day by focusing on humanitarians who are working to end the drug abuse crisis in towns and cities across the world.

According to a study published in 2018, illicit drug use was responsible for over 750,000 deaths per year. In the U.S. alone, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that more than 105,000 lives were lost due to overdose in 2021. Little wonder that the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is calling for "urgent action to protect people, including by strengthening drug use prevention...." And this is why they selected #CareInCrises as this year's slogan for International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

A global problem demands a global solution. Which is why the Church of Scientology developed the Truth About Drugs, now one of the world's largest nongovernmental drug information and prevention initiatives. In 2006, Foundation for a Drug-Free World, a secular nonprofit corporation, was formed to serve as the primary distributor of the educational materials and to develop new materials to meet the challenge of continually changing drug trends.

Scientology Network is marking this year's International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking by featuring episodes of the original series "Voices for Humanity," documenting the work of drug-prevention activists who are saving lives:

* On the streets of Los Angeles, former addict David Sanchez uses Foundation for a Drug-Free World materials to give kids the street smarts they need to make the right choice about living drug-free. "I knew that I had to find a way to educate people," he says. "Knowing about something that could hurt you is half the battle of being able to defeat it."

* Some 8,700 miles away in Malaysia, Khai Aziz, lead singer of the hard-core straight-edge punk band Second Combat, uses his music to spread the message to youth that there's nothing cool about using drugs. Straight edge is hardcore punk whose adherents refrain from using drugs. And with drug dealers targeting younger and younger children, Aziz is fighting back, using the Foundation's Truth About Drugs initiative to reach kids in school.

* Lithuanian-born Ingrida Lingyte's life was changed forever when her mother was killed and her sister paralyzed in an accident caused by a drunk driver. Years later, on a visit to Colombia, she fell in love with the country and made it her home. To combat Colombia's drug culture and the suffering it causes, Lingyte and her team have reached one-fifth of the country's population with the Truth About Drugs. And they're still going strong.

Episodes on these and many more drug-prevention activists will be airing throughout the day, showing how people from all walks of life, nationalities and affiliations are using the Truth About Drugs initiative to raise awareness about drugs and help people make the decision to live drug-free lives.

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, "Prevention strategies based on scientific evidence working with families, schools, and communities can ensure that children and youth, especially the most marginalized and poor, grow and stay healthy and safe into adulthood and old age. For every dollar spent on prevention, at least ten can be saved in future health, social and crime costs."

Noting the role substance abuse plays in the disintegration of the social fabric, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, "Research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs."

Foundation for a Drug-Free World was formed in 2006 to serve as the primary distributor of educational materials and to develop new materials to meet the challenge of continually changing drug trends. The Foundation has grown to a network of some 200 chapters around the world. Thanks to the support of the Church of Scientology and Scientologists, it provides the Truth About Drugs secular program and materials free of charge to drug educators worldwide.

"Voices for Humanity" is a Scientology Network original series of short documentaries introducing changemakers from all faiths, cultures and nations as they extend help to their communities through Scientology-sponsored humanitarian programs.

Since launching with a special episode featuring Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige, Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages. Broadcast from Scientology Media Productions, the Church's global media center in Los Angeles, the Scientology Network is available on DIRECTV Channel 320 and can be streamed at Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

Documentary Showcase is the weekly series providing a platform for independent filmmakers to share their work on important social, cultural and environmental issues.

"Big Sonia" tells the life story of Sonia Warshawski, who was 17 in 1942 when the Germans forced her and her family into slave labor in the ghetto. From there she was transported to and survived Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps.

Faced with an agonizing decision of whether to carry on anew or retire, her lifelong struggle with her memories comes to the fore as she admits to preferring to stay busy "to keep the dark parts away." But it's those same traumatic memories of her youth that make her a compelling and popular motivational speaker. Viewers will watch as Sonia delivers inspiring speeches in schools, churches and prisons, and experience the powerful impact her message of hope has on audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

ABOUT LEAH WARSHAWSKI

Codirector Leah Warshawski, Sonia's granddaughter, produces and directs documentary features, television shows, commercials and branded entertainment. Her first feature, "Finding Hillywood" (2013), won six awards, including the Critics' Award (Sebastopol Doc Festival) and the Audience Award (Napa Film Festival), and screened at more than 65 festivals.

ABOUT TODD SOLIDAY

Codirector Todd Soliday is a director, director of photography and editor with more than 25 years of experience in production and post-production. He specializes in documentary storytelling and adventure films such as "Platinum" (2007). As post-production supervisor for "Finding Hillywood," Soliday was in charge of graphics and sound and edited a music video for the film. Recent documentary projects include "Out of Luck" (2015) and "The Breach" (2014).

Join the Church of Scientology in Celebrating the Anniversary of the Freewinds

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Each June, Scientologists celebrate the Maiden Voyage of the Freewinds, a ship powered by the purpose: to help create a better world.The Freewinds is a religious retreat that serves Scientologists as the pinnacle of their journey to total spiritual freedom.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard directed that the highest levels of the Bridge to Total Freedom be delivered in a distraction-free environment, off the crossroads of the day-to-day world. So it was that Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige saw to the purchase and retrofitting of the Motor Vessel Freewinds, which was christened on June 6, 1988.

From the top of her bridge to the depths of her engine room, the Freewinds is a ship powered by the purpose: to help create a better world. With its state-of-the-art navigation system, manned by some of the most competent sailors on the sea, this is a ship that uplifts communities wherever she puts in. Sailing under the flag of the Sea Organization, the Church's religious order, the Freewinds forwards Scientology humanitarian goals, helping to shape the fate of entire nations.

Civic and religious leaders from throughout the Caribbean and Latin America recognize the Freewinds as a place of profound personal renewal, and as a source of solutions to meet their needs through the Church's humanitarian programs and interfaith initiatives.

When the pandemic struck in 2020, the Freewinds was in Aruba. She rapidly geared up to clean and sanitize schools, healthcare centers, shelters, fire and police stations, museums, nonprofits, businesses and public facilities. And her Volunteer Ministers distributed thousands of copies of educational booklets to prevent the spread of the coronavirus through the island. The response was so effective that Aruba's Director of Tourism and Public Health credited the work of the Freewinds with enabling the island to reopen its borders to tourism and trade.

In launching the Scientology TV Network in March 2018, David Miscavige promised that the channel's programming would take people "into our Churches, spanning 167 countries on six continents... behind the scenes and into our Church management, publication and dissemination facilities, humanitarian outreach centers and programs..." with the network's original series Destination: Scientology and Inside Scientology.

So, on the 34th anniversary of the ship's Maiden Voyage, watch Inside Scientology: The Freewinds on the Scientology Network. And see just why its yearly anniversary is celebrated by leaders throughout the Caribbean and Scientologists everywhere.

Since launching, the Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages.

Satisfying the curiosity of people about Scientology, the network takes viewers across six continents, spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists, showing the Church as a global organization, and presenting its social betterment programs that have touched the lives of millions worldwide. The network also showcases documentaries by independent filmmakers who represent a cross-section of cultures and faiths, but share a common purpose of uplifting communities.

Join Three Scientologists Whose Work Is a Celebration of Light

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- In honor of International Day of Light, the Scientology Network features the impact of light on the work of artists featured in three episodes of the original series "Meet a Scientologist." UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, sets aside May 16 as International Day of Light to highlight the role of light in science, culture, art, education and sustainable development.

In honor of the day, the Scientology Network spotlights three episodes of the original series "Meet a Scientologist," featuring the work of men and women for whom light is the inspiration and medium of their art.

* János Héder, enthralled by the constellations and nebulae in the enormity of black space, sought to recreate the wonder he experienced through the creation of chandeliers that transform the spaces they illuminate. He and his wife Judit, fellow designer and joint CEO of Manooi Light Creations, and their team of designers and staff bring beauty and luminance to the world.

* Christy Lee Rogers uses the refraction of light through water to create works of photographic brilliance that have been compared to the works of Titian, Rubens and Caravaggio. Her artistic and personal journey and her role in forging a new respect for photography in the world of art is the subject of her episode.

* Tom Rigdon transforms light by faithful use of techniques used in creating the magnificent windows of Gothic and Renaissance churches. Stepping in to take over the faltering company for the wife of his best friend who died suddenly, he built the enterprise into a thriving studio, inspired by his belief that light is the most powerful aesthetic there is.

Join the Church of Scientology Miami as it Celebrates the Fifth Anniversary in its New Home

MIAMI, Fla. -- April 29, 2022 marks the anniversary of the dedication of the new Church of Scientology Miami by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige. The strong sense of community of Miami Scientologists, and their purpose and drive to bring real help, inspired Mayor Tomás Regalado to describe the Church as "an anchor for the community, alive with volunteerism," when he welcomed them to their new home in 2017. And this is a reputation they have more than lived up to throughout the past five years.

Miami, Florida, is a tropical paradise unlike any other. At its heart is a melding of Caribbean, Central and South American cultures creating a unique kaleidoscope of Latin sounds, tastes and rhythms. The Church of Scientology is an integral part of this culture and is dedicated to enhancing the lives of the people who call this city home.

The best way to share the eclectic magic of the Church is to come by to find out more. It is located at 2220 South Dixie Highway in Coconut Grove. But if you live far away, an episode of Destination Scientology provides a glimpse behind the scenes.

Viewers see Miami through the eyes of local parishioners and staff, who share what makes Miami so special, including the city's world-famous beaches, Ocean Drive with its art deco splendor, some of the city's most popular eateries, and its Latin culture.

The Church of Scientology Miami is an Ideal Scientology Organization, configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community - a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

The Scientology Network debuted in 2018. Since launching, with a special episode featuring Mr. Miscavige, it has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages.

Satisfying the curiosity of people about Scientology, the network takes viewers across six continents, spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists, showing the Church as a global organization, and presenting its social betterment programs that have touched the lives of millions worldwide.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard and the Magazine Article That Inspired an International Movement

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- 72 years ago, an article in Astounding Science Fiction hit the newsstands in April and set the stage for the explosive launch of "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health," which rolled out in May.

"Dianetics" sold out immediately, in no small part because of the enthusiasm of those who had read the magazine article and snapped up copies of the book. It was these men and women who helped propel the book onto bestseller lists, where it stayed week after week as news of its results spread.

Some 750 Dianetics groups sprang up across the United States, with more cropping up in English-speaking countries around the world. And many of the original adherents of Dianetics learned of the subject from this magazine article and ordered their copies as soon as the book rolled off the press.

In Melbourne, John Roberts could hardly wait to get his copy of the book. He learned of Dianetics from a fellow he worked with who had read the article. Roberts, a survivor of the notorious Japanese Changi prisoner of war camp in Malaysia, returned home at the end of World War II a shell of the man he was when he left to serve. And he knew it. Roberts read the article at his friend's suggestion and sent off by mail order for two copies of "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health."

Roberts' daughter, now in her 90s, described how her father read the book cover to cover without putting it down. He and his friend immediately teamed up to deliver this technology to one another. It accomplished everything he'd hoped for and Roberts became an integral part of the movement that brought Dianetics and Scientology to his country.

Some 9,500 miles away from Melbourne, in Peoria, Illinois, George Seidler also learned about Dianetics from a friend. Seidler had served in the war as a medic and earned a Bronze Star Medal for bravery for crawling out of a bunker under fire to pull wounded soldiers to safety.

After the war, Seidler went college, courtesy of the GI Bill, and it was a classmate who told him about Dianetics. But Seidler wasn't interested.

"I was a scientist and a skeptic to end all skeptics," Seidler said in an interview in 2012. "My philosophy was-unless you can see it, feel it, touch it, it isn't worth bothering with."

Seidler challenged his friend, asking him, "How can you believe that stuff?" But he was actually intrigued with the idea of recovering his full potential, not to mention coming to grips with what he experienced during the war. He bought "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" and began reading it right away.

On page 2 of the book, Seidler came across something that completely changed his attitude.

"L. Ron Hubbard wrote that Man is basically good," he said. "I always believed that but never found anyone else who shared my views - certainly not in the religions I knew - but here was L. Ron Hubbard saying it. My wife got interested and started reading it too. Before long, we were fighting over whose turn it was with the one book, so I got a second copy."

Seidler was among those trained directly under L. Ron Hubbard in 1950 at the Dianetics Foundation in Los Angeles. And he continued as an ardent Dianeticist and Scientologist for the rest of his life, opening a Scientology Mission to make this technology of the mind, spirit and life available in his hometown in Illinois.

Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige describes how later, L. Ron Hubbard published the Astounding Science Fiction article as a book - "Dianetics: The Evolution of a Science." And it is in this book that Mr. Hubbard reveals the research methods by which he discovered the reactive mind - the portion of a person's mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis and is not under volitional control.

Today, "Dianetics: The Evolution of a Science" and "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" are available in 50 languages and anyone may study these books. Courses are available at Scientology Churches, Missions and groups across the globe and can also be done by mail or email through extension courses.

Anyone wishing to explore the revolutionary discoveries of Dianetics is invited to watch three films on the subject: "Dianetics: An Introduction," "The Dianetics of Grief," and "What is Dianetics?"

Produced by Scientology Media Productions, the Church's global media center in Los Angeles, these films are broadcast on the Scientology Network at DIRECTV 320 and can be streamed at Scientology.tv, through satellite television, mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

For Earth Day, the Church of Scientology Shares the Work of an Ecological Visionary

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- An episode of Meet a Scientologist on the Scientology Network documents how Peter Vajda is preserving the Earth's resources by salvaging barren farmland.

Each year on April 22, Earth Day raises awareness of the importance of safeguarding the environment. This year's theme is "Invest in Our Planet." And Scientologist Peter Vajda has devoted his life to doing just that.

"With the population growing and productive farmland decreasing, this is a race to save future generations," says Vajda in his episode of Meet a Scientologist on the Scientology Network.

Heavy chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are leaving a devastating wake of barren farmlands. But Vajda is reversing this blight with his award-winning, organically based technology. His eco-friendly solution to desertification is gaining international recognition.

"Agriculture is in my veins," says Vajda. Fond memories of picking apples in his grandfather's orchard as a child led him to study agricultural engineering in college. But it wasn't until he graduated that Vajda realized that in 60 years there may very well be no apples - or any viable agriculture. The heavy use of chemicals and pesticides is destroying much of the world's best farmlands, creating a threat to the future of all forms of life on Earth.

Vajda began working for a company at the forefront of soil rejuvenation and eventually became its chief executive officer. With him at the helm, driving research and development, the company's transformation of barren farmland brings new hope that the world's food production can be brought back from the brink of extinction.

Meet a Scientologist is an original series airing on Scientology Network. Episodes provide an in-depth look into the lives of individual Scientologists at the forefront of art, science, fashion, entertainment and technology.

The Scientology Network debuted in 2018. Since launching with a special episode featuring Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige, Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages.

One Reason You May Love to Immerse Yourself in the Scientology Network

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Featured this week on the Scientology Network, photographer Christy Lee Rogers creates breathtaking photographic works of art using her own unique underwater technique.

In a melding of baroque aesthetic with modern technology, Rogers created her own genre. Winner of the Sony World Photography Open Photographer Award in 2019, she was also commissioned by Apple to create her Water + Light underwater images with the iPhone. Apple featured this in one of its behind-the-scenes process films.

In an interview with CNN, Rogers described how she named her most recent collection "Human" to embody strength during the pandemic. She later donated one of the works "to the heroic doctors, nurses and staff of Mount Sinai" in the hopes that it would bring them "hope and inspiration."

Meet a Scientologist provides an in-depth look into the lives of individual Scientologists from the frontiers of art, science, sports and entertainment. And no one qualifies more as "cutting edge" than this award-winning artist. Rogers' episode of Meet a Scientologist introduces viewers to the genius behind these otherworldly creations.

Born and raised in Hawaii and growing up in and around water, she developed an affinity for the element that would play a pivotal role in her future career.

As a teenager, she became passionately interested in photography, spending hours in a darkroom developing her images. After finding the courage to pursue her passion professionally, she presented her first collection - models submerged in water, surrounded by billowing gowns against a solid black background.

Because her artwork defied conventional categorization, Rogers found gallery owners hesitant to take her on. But the stunning luminescence, color and composition of her work garnered admirers and clients, and quickly become a gallery favorite. Today, her art is world-renowned, and the story of how she got there is a picture worth a thousand words.

The Scientology Network debuted in 2018. Since launching with a special episode featuring Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige, Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages.
