CO-AUDIT TWIN APPRECIATION DAY
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to LOREN SPETHMAN
Loren has been my co-audit twin since December of last year, when I washed back up on American shores after years of harrowing adventure in Costa Rica, exiled back to my own country. Loren picked me up, gave me a locational out at his little “farm,” gave me a place to stay and he and his parents became my second family. Both of us still on church lines (still technically, on staff!), we decided to audit. It was abundantly clear that the “Bridge” was gone in the current church.
We then proceeded to get each other through correction lists and Quad Ruds on problem terminals. The years of abuse began to unravel. Reverse Scientology was successfully corrected. Every session was another step out of the trap that the modern church has become, and into freedom. Loren bravely applied “read it-drill it-do it” from the 1980 CO-AUDIT HCOBs, and gave me a full PTS rundown, complete with Service Facsimile and Evil Purpose handlings, that completely changed my viewpoint and put me back “at cause” with the roller-coastering terminatedly handled.
David Miscavige was a reading “known before?” item for me on the PTS Rundown – one of many, including a few other church terminals that never could have been handled in the org! From there, it became easier and easier to forgive and forget the abuses, and grant beingness to others like never before.
We have been co-auditing the first of the Grades AND we have delivered the SuperPower “Bright Think” line-up to each other to spectacular results. As a result of all that, I have been living life again at high-intensity with a greatly restored Havingness – even after all the huge losses, including of course, the church we dedicated 15+ years of our lives to.
Loren and I served together on staff in Dallas, where he joined in 1994 and was my junior as Book One auditor and then Basic Courses Supervisor in Div6. He was ripped off from being public sup when the GAT evolution of 1996 forced him into Div4. He went on to become a top-notch Professional Course Supervisor in high demand, with a number of spectacular recoveries of long-bugged students (including pre-OTs at Flag) on course, as well as getting through training to become a fully-interned Flag Class IV Auditor.
Loren braved a great deal of abuse – mostly at Flag – and it is auditor’s-code-protected data until he’s ready to speak out. What I can tell you is that it rivals some of the stories you have heard elsewhere as far as the extent of corruption of the tech and its outright reversal.
As our auditing progressed, it became more effective and powerful in direct proportion to the degree we let go of the rigidity we were programmed into, and just “audited for the pc.”
Until today, I had kept all this under the radar since Loren has been making good use of his “good standing” to keep our friends inside informed, up until recently, when he found out he had finally been “declared.”
Loren is currently Supervising for the North Texas field and developing co-audit materials per the 1980 CO-AUDIT Series and LRH references spanning the entire line of research, to enable rapid training and co-auditing in the field.
Words cannot express my appreciation and pride in what we have accomplished together thus far.
