Church Scientology celebrates 41 years rooted in Spain “providing indispensable help to society"

Spain Scientology Grand Opening

IN SEPTEMBER 2004, the National Church of Scientology opened in the heart of Madrid, with 6,000 assembling to celebrate the new Church.

Spanish scientologists celebrate each September the establishment of their first church in Spain, and 2021 marks the 41st Anniversary.

In this 41st Anniversary in Spain, our mission for a better, prosperous and free society still goes on, we will continue against hell or high waters, providing indispensable help to society”

— Ivan Arjona Pelado

MADRID, SPAIN, September 16, 2021 / — Spanish scientologists celebrate each September the establishment of their church in Spain, and 2021 marks the 41st Anniversary.

“In this 41st Anniversary in Spain, our mission for a better, prosperous and free society still goes on,” said Ivan Arjona, President of the European Office of the Church of Scientology, “and we will continue against hell or high waters, providing indispensable help to society”.

It was in 1980, as covered in the Calendar of Religious Holidays of the Fundacion Pluralismo y Convivencia (attached to Spain’s Prime Minister´s Office) when the first church got established in Madrid. It is nevertheless also true that while the church started only then, the religion started to be practiced in different parts of country, but especially in the Canary Islands, in 1967, when its founder L. Ron Hubbard created the Religious Order of the church known as the “Sea Organization”, as seen in the glossary of the above mentioned foundation.

Having started in a small flat in the center of Madrid and quickly expanding to 4 and then to Barcelona, the Scientologists started to spread the knowledge of the first book on the subject published by L. Ron Hubbard, entitled Dianetics, which as History of Religions Prof. Francisco Díez de Velasco expressed “In this way he [L. Ron Hubbard] begins to put forward a new model of a religious character. He presents it as a step-by-step path of spiritual development involving the transformation of the perception through a process called clearing, until the state of "clear" is reached”.

The 80ies saw Spain as a country that still had reminiscences of dictatorial ideas of “one thought- one religion”, and old nuances of the concept of religion, democracy and freedoms. Scientologists found themselves in an unprecedented growth and at the same time having to defend themselves of biased attacks by Anti Religious movements and archaic state officials totally moved by the propaganda of such groups, as author Gabriel Carrion described in his book “Scientology: the longest battle”.

The first part of the end of this “longest battle” took place in 2001 when the Provincial Court of Madrid declared, after 19 years of scrupulous investigations, that none of the accusations [proclaimed by antireligious movements and bought by certain government officials] had any glimpse of evidence. It also ruled, and that the practice of “auditing” [clearing or spiritual enlightening] based on the use of communication, could not be “owned” by psychiatrists or psychologists, “especially when Scientologists do it as part of their religious rites”.

Scientologists have from the beginning invested time, know-how and energy on helping its surrounding communities, and in Spain the biggest efforts where always directed at helping those who had fallen victims of the drugs pandemics that hit Spain during several decades. They supported a drug rehabilitation program called Narconon, which uses a successful socio-educational approach and gave the life back to thousands of citizens and their families, and helping them become contributing members of society.

Next milestones on putting an end to the “longest battle” took place first on September 2004 when Mr. David Miscavige, world ecclesiastical leader of Scientology visited Madrid to open their new Church, just 100 meters away from the Spanish Parliament, and then in 2007 when the Government Special Registry of Religious Organizations finally granted the recognition of the Church of Scientology as a religious community.

Battles having been won, the “war” against poverty, drugs, illiteracy, lack of values and human rights violations is still open in the world and of course in Europe and Spain. Scientologists have formed the battalions, or their teams of angels speaking in a more religious and philosophical ways, with which to heal and overcome these social pandemics and channel their efforts and energy through The Truth About Drugs program, United and Youth for Human Rights, the Way to Happiness, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, Criminon, Narconon, and their religious freedom projects around the world. And to top it up, Spanish Scientologists created a Foundation for the Improvement of Life Culture and Society in 2015, which channeling all the mentioned campaigns, and through its work and effectiveness, received recognition in 2019 as an NGO with Special Consultative Status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

Plans for 108 Hindu Chaplains and 1,000 Trained Volunteers by 2025

Throughout the pandemic, we have seen a tremendous hunger for spiritual care in the community. We see great opportunities for knowledge sharing across traditions and across borders.”

— Gaurav Rastogi, HCI Dean

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 16, 2021 / — The Hindu Community Institute (HCI) announced the launch of a global network of spiritual care providers, consisting of Hindu chaplains, trained and vetted volunteer counselors, and interfaith partner organizations. This program aims to fulfill the demand for spiritual care rooted in the Hindu tradition, serving families, hospitals, colleges, prisons, corporations, and the military. HCI has graduated three cohorts of its Counselor of Hindu Tradition (CHT) course. It has built a network of 200 trained volunteers in the US and plans to expand to 1,000 volunteers globally in the next five years.

Under its “Pathway 108” program that began in 2021, HCI is expected to support the credentialing of 108 Hindu chaplains by 2025. HCI’s chaplaincy pathway program enables qualified CHTs to enter the prestigious Interreligious Chaplaincy Program at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) at Berkeley, California. The first three CHTs have entered this program this semester, with several others planning to join in the coming semesters.

Announcing the pioneer program, HCI President Dr. Kailash Joshi said, “We are pleased and thankful to have worked with GTU in creating this first-ever opportunity for aspiring individuals to achieve Hindu Chaplaincy credentials. We see this service bringing to the community a unique combination of Hindu tradition and the best of norms and protocols of Chaplaincy.” Dr. Joshi also announced HCI’s creation of an education fund to be built with contributions from the global community.

Describing the significance of the proposed spiritual care network, HCI Board Member and Dean Gaurav Rastogi said, “Throughout the pandemic, we have seen a tremendous hunger for spiritual care in the community. We see great opportunities for knowledge sharing across traditions and across borders. To design this proposed network we have drawn inspiration from established spiritual care, academic and interfaith organizations. Since modern problems require modern solutions, we are using technology as a means of magnifying our impact and reach. Our CHT program is already admitting scholars from five countries, and we have signed agreements with several partner organizations.”

HCI has also created a community helpline service in select cities across the US, providing guidance on celebrations, last rites, marriage and compassionate presence. Describing this volunteer service, Chair of Services and HCI Board member Dr. Mukund Acharya said, “We have a vision for free spiritual care services for guidance and referral that is available to everyone in the community. Our network of certified volunteers and vetted subject matter experts will bring relief and wisdom when needed. We intend to use technology to offer some services globally online.”

HCI announcement also included the following statements from partner organizations and informed supporters:

Welcoming the first batch of CHTs, GTU Director Dr. Kamal Abu-Shamsieh stated, “The Interreligious Chaplaincy Program at the Graduate Theological Union welcomes students from all backgrounds, especially minorities, to explore and study in an affirming environment that celebrates diversity and pluralism. To this end, we welcome chaplaincy students from Hindu communities from across the United States and abroad to join us and establish a foundation of spiritual care rooted in Vedic practices of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, and prayers.”

In support of the Chaplaincy pathway program, Head of Spiritual Directors International Reverend Anil Singh-Molares said, "Over the last few years I have watched with admiration as HCI has developed and evolved a world-class program for Hindu Counselors and Advisors, and now, for chaplains. This program fills a significant void, allowing the riches of the Hindu tradition to be offered in chaplaincy settings to many individuals who will benefit greatly from them.”

Dr. Asha Shipman, Chair of North American Hindu Chaplains Association (NAHCA) at Yale University welcomed the HCI-GTU plan and commented, “Access to culturally appropriate professional education for Hindu spiritual caregivers has been a major stumbling block. We need more Hindu chaplains; their heart-centered spiritual care will help not only individuals but strengthen, inspire and invigorate our communities. The partnership between HCI and GTU provides an opportunity for such training and I look forward to welcoming graduates as members of NAHCA.”

Commenting on the need for Chaplaincy services in the community, renowned Vedic scholar and computer scientist Professor Subhash Kak said, “I support the vision of Hindu chaplaincy wholeheartedly. It is certainly needed in the United States; it can also serve as a model for other countries to emulate.”

Chaplain Bruce Feldstein MD, BCC at Stanford University, Past President of Neshama: Association of Jewish Chaplains, the professional association for Jewish chaplains worldwide, commented on his long association with HCI, “As a visiting faculty, I have experienced HCI’s serious and heartfelt commitment and leadership provided by proven business leaders who have come together and turned their attention to an important and unfulfilled need in their Hindu community.”

21 Days of Counseling and Affirmative Prayer, Using the Mirror Method to Cleanse Your Subconscious Mind, and Then Command Your Life Back to Order.

The conversations you have with yourself should be rich and positive enough to transcend and dispel the ever brewing negativity in your external world”

— Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana-Murray

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 15, 2021 / — A mirror will never change the image in front of it. If you want the image in the mirror to change, change the image… don’t break the mirror.

Just like the image in the mirror, our experiences, both inwardly and outwardly, are reflections of the programs in our subconscious minds. The subconscious mind is the storage of our behavior, beliefs, actions, thought-patterns, decision-making patterns, and experiences. When we want to change our experiences, we have to change the programs in our subconscious minds.

The questions then are, do your experiences mirror positive prompters in your subconscious mind? What information and programs are you storing in your subconscious mind, and how are they affecting your experiences? What do you believe should change to make your life more blissful?

Note that we are not our experiences; we are not our subconscious or conscious minds, or anything else we have or do. We are souls supported by the spirit of God. When we remember who we are and acknowledge that truth, we recognize that we are equipped with the authority and power to command anything in our lives to change as we please.

Quote: “Don't wait for the green light: you are the green light." ~ Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana-Murray, PhD. MBA.

Starfura: One Veterans Journey From Homelessness to Space Technology President

FROM HOMELESS TO SPACE! How one veteran overcame the hardship of homelessness to the owner of a Space Technology Organization for Veterans!



WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 15, 2021 / — Beating the odds and overcoming the obstacles, United States Army Veteran Starfury, in August 2021, successfully launched S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A., a nonprofit space technology organization for veterans.

S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. serves as the acronym for Space, Terraformation, Astronautics, and Research for United Residents of Alpha. S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A.’s mission is to financially support the work of military veterans who design workable, space apparatus prototypes for practical use in the space industry. In addition, S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. will train and teach the practicalities of space travel and inhabitation to disadvantaged youth and young adults. S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. aims to equip inventors and future leaders with the resources and knowledge needed to compete in the booming space industry.

“It is crucial that we give EVERYONE, no matter their socio-economic status, the opportunity to learn what space has to offer!” STARFURY

S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A.’s vision is to partner with leading Space companies such as SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, NASA, Angel Investors familiar with space enterprise, and even the Space Force to support and fund the organization’s mission of readying individuals for space endeavors.

Unique from most space start-ups it is S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A.’s desire to Research Religion in Space! Starfury, S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A.’s founder, understands the power of faith and sound doctrine as instruments for possibility, which is why an additional goal of S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. is to research the characteristics of religion in space. S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. will seek the assistance of religious scholars and archaeologists from the most sought-after religious communities to help spearhead the program. In doing so, humanity can truly understand it’s place in the cosmos and the center core of our spiritual being.

“Faith guided prior explorers to traverse our blue planet, and it is faith that will guide our future explorers across the stars!” STARFURY

Starfury, president and founder of S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A., is a native of Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies. Starfury, at an early age, was a visionary; while his childhood peers played sports, Starfury researched phenomenon like the Bermuda Triangle. At the age of 17, Starfury enlisted in the United States Army which he took his military career seriously, which resulted in him receiving several honorable awards. Starfury enjoyed military life immensely. However, he knew by the tugging of his spirit that life, beyond this world, had more to offer.

“Once I saw the awesome technological power of the Army’s A-10 Warthog while serving with 1/509th J.R.T.C. in 1992, I knew space travel was possible through advance technology!” STARFURY

Starfury, in 2002, walked away from his job as a corrections officer for the State of Maryland. That decision, along with a string of bad choices, rendered him homeless. Starfury lived in his car for months before catching a break. Eventually, he was offered and accepted an opportunity to volunteer for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Starfury’s life changed while serving with the 5th Special Forces in Baghdad, Iraq. Starfury met his first mentor, Colonel Campbell, during that time. Colonel Campbell openly challenged Starfury to do better, and from that point forward, Starfury changed his life’s trajectory.

“The struggle is Real! Yet, People from all over the world continue to pour into me! Because of the support I receive, I no longer look into the rearview mirror of my life. My eyes point forward toward future possibilities!” STARFURY

S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A.’s headquarter is in Washington D.C. S.T.A.R.F.U.R.A. desires to build lasting relationships with other veteran organizations and seek start-up funding to support technological space endeavors for Veterans and future leaders.

“It’s time we redirect the message of space travel and inhabitation. We need to make room for the dreamers, believers, and visionaries who made the intention of Space achievable!”

“Space Is Calling… Let’s Get To Work!” STARFURY

Starfury is also the president of Military B.O.O.T.S. (Beyond, Objectives Obstacles, and Training Science) and End Racism Forever Organization

Rogers’ endorsement of Sessler was followed shortly by a second endorsement of him by Senator Amanda Chase. She tweeted similar messages from her two Twitter accounts which read, “I strongly endorse Washington State Republican House of Rep Candidate Jerrod Sessler who is running against a traitorous incumbent Republican who voted to impeach President Trump. Sessler is a veteran, successful businessman, family man, and a former NASCAR driver @sessler”

Sessler responded to these endorsements tweeting, “It is an honor to stand shoulder to shoulder in defense of America with Amanda Chase, Wendy Rogers, and other leaders across the nation. We will win.”

Sessler has been making waves in the political community for his outspoken support of election audits and changes restricting fraud in our election system. He has also been involved in championing the rights of January 6th prisoners, including filming a video with Karl Dresch, a January 6th protestor who had been locked in a DC jail for over 6 months. The video went viral and was covered by several news sources and organizations, including an article in the Washington Post. Sessler is scheduled to return to DC in October to hold a protest rally outside the jail, followed by a “Pray for America” event led by him.

Sessler is running against incumbent Congressman Dan Newhouse, who voted to impeach President Trump and in favor of the January 6th commission. He is an unabashed Christian, has been married to his wife for 25 years, and has three children.

Against all odds, Joe Rubinstein not only survived Auschwitz and several notorious concentration camps, but now will celebrate his 101st birthday on 9/16/2021

Although he lost nearly everything a person can lose, Joe has gone on to live an extraordinary and joy-filled life. Barefooted when he was seized, Joe became one of New York’s leading shoe designers.”

— Author Nancy Sprowell Geise

CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 15, 2021 / — On April 30, 1942, 21- year-old Icek Rubinsztejn (Joe Rubinstein) arrived at the Auschwitz/Birkenau concentration camp after being taken from the Radom, Poland ghetto on a frigid, predawn morning. Wearing only shorts and a t-shirt, Joe was forced onto an open-air truck. With no protection from the cold, he huddled with strangers. Hours later, several others around him were dead from exposure. From there, things got worse for young Joe.

Joe would never again see anyone he knew or loved, including his entire family. His widowed mother, his younger sister, and his three brothers (his identical twin among them) were murdered at the Treblinka Death Camp, along with over 30,000 people from the Radom ghettos.

Until Rubinstein shared his story with author Nancy Sprowell Geise for the book about his life: Auschwitz #34207 – The Joe Rubinstein Story, Joe had not told anyone of his harrowing experiences of nearly five years of imprisonment.

“Although he lost nearly everything a person can lose,” Geise said, “Joe has gone on to live an extraordinary and joy-filled life. Barefooted when he was seized, Joe became one of New York’s leading shoe designers. His life of never giving in to despair is an example for us all.”

Geise said, "For decades, Joe never told anyone his story because he did not believe anything good could come from doing so. Now, we hear from people around the world writing to tell us about the impact his story of hope is having on their lives."

Geise has been asked to share Joe's story around the world, including in Washington, DC, at the United States Library of Congress and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum; in Joe's hometown of Radom, Poland, as part of the 75th commemoration of the liquidation of the Radom, Poland ghettos; and at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Oświęcim, Poland, as part of their yearly staff/volunteer training.

Last year, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, where Joe now lives, declared his 100th birthday: Joe Rubinstein Day. It is believed that Joe is the oldest Holocaust survivor alive today in the state of Colorado.
