In Oct 2017, Tami and Dani Lemberger were in Los Angeles, hosted by Grace and Ken Aaron. On Oct. 25th, the Aaron’s invited many of their friends to meet with Tami and Dani. Dani told the story of Dror Center, their departure from the Church in 2012, the ensuing legal battle and, finally, the story behind the LifePower book.
Dani’s talk of approximately two hours was recorded. We now present it, divided it into four sections, each covering a particular subject.
We believe that Dani’s lecture would be of interest to all who care about Hubbard’s philosophy and its practice outside the stranglehold of the Church of Scientology. The four sections of the lecture are:
Section 1, posted on January, 17, 2020: 15 minutes long. Tami and Dani starting to do Scientology in 1980 and their progress up the Bridge to OT 7. Opening of Dror Center in 1992, its development until the decision to leave the Church in 2012 and expansion since.
Section 2, posted on February, 7, 20: 24 minutes long. The lawsuit of the Lemberger’s against the Church of Scientology Int. The causes for the suit and final settlement in February 2017.
Section 3: posted on March, 13, 2020: 28 minutes long. What brought Dani to write the LifePower book. A brief description of the book, which at the time of the lecture was a draft named, The Route to Spiritual Freedom.
Today, we post Section 4: Question and Answers.
The audience asked many questions of Dani and was highly active throughout Dani’s talk. Major points of interest are:
Start – 5:50 minutes: Discussion of Dror Center as a religion. Dani refers to Prof. James Lewis who visited Dror and states that its activity does constitute a religion. See Prof. James Lewis’s visit to Dror of May 2013.
5:51 – 10:30 minutes: Audience asked Dani more questions about writing the LP book, Standard Tech, delivery of the Communication Course at Dror Center, training on the Solo Auditor Course and OT Levels.
10:31 – 13:45 minutes: Discussion of copyright issues.
13:46 – 17:30 minutes: Questions about the similarity of LifePower to Frank Gerbode’s TIR. You may also wish to view a talk Dani gave about this subject in May 2018.
17:31 – 18:50: Closing words by our host, Grace Aaron.
