Former scientologist leah remini revealed that newly initiated members are required to pay fees ranging from 1 per hour to 1 200 for courses to reach the supposed next level the first stage is called clear and if that sounds like complete nonsense to you congratulations. Money cost of membership.
That s where the money is.
How much does it cost to get into scientology. Critics often suggest that people entering scientology are not made aware of the costs involved yet the american saint hill organization asho which trains auditors today posts the costs on their website. Although intro classes can be as low as 35 leah calls these throwaways that don t even count toward the requirements of going up the bridge to total freedom in scientology. Attending a good four year public college can easily run 40 000 while a private college can run more than 100 000.
That s why they start out on the 100 courses to get you into agreement about self improvement before they hit you up for the 1000 courses. And those dianetics books. The audits cost about 800 per hour.
You can also find free courses online. Scientology teaches that reaching the top of the bridge means one should be able to use their mind to do powerful things like move things cure cancer in yourself according to remini. You re well on your way to understanding scientology.
You ll be curious because that s what led you there in the first place but don t fall for this attractive initial fee. Community answer there are services books and lectures which can be attended without donation. However the average cost of reaching ot 8 is nearly 400 000.
The one aspect of scientology that tends to work is that they get you up the tone scale with the org before they milk you for money. I d like to start a religion. As members get higher in the scientology church they are expected to consistently take courses which cost from 650 for a beginner class and quickly escalate into thousands per course.
A package of the books costs about 4 000. As a former staff member as others on here are we cannot give you a definite figure or any information that is proprietary because we have signed a confi. If each course is taken separately it costs approximately the prices are always changing 750 just to go from o iv grade 500 for the next one 1 200 for grade v power processes 775 for grade vi 600 for solo in which you audit yourself and finally 800 for the final clear or a total of approximately 4 625 although package deals bring the price down a bit lower.
For an old thread i m not sure why i was requested to answer this but i ll give it a try.
