Samara, November 20, Interfax — The Samara city court has banned work of Dianetics Center as its staff-members worked without license and practiced hypnotherapy and Ron Hubbard teaching.
The Samara Region Prosecutor’s Office reported that staff-members of the Dianetics Center lectured at seminars and courses on dianetics and scientology without having special licenses.
“These educational courses allegedly aimed at forming world outlook and life style based on priority of human values. They tried to reach it by applying philosophy of improving people worked out by Hubbard. Besides, they practiced programs of “catharsis” and “auditing” based on hypnotherapy used in psychiatric medicine,” the message says.1
