L. Ron Hubbard's quest to answer the riddles of Man encompassed over three decades of investigation to the discovery of the Reactive Mind and the publication of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
Yet if that path of research, to May 1950, had been extensive, the subsequent decades were fully unrelenting. His succeeding discoveries were recorded in more than 3,000 lectures which, step by step and in their entirety, provide the grand panorama of understanding the human mind and secrets of life that is Scientology today.
Yet also contained within that chronology of consecutive developments are milestones, breakthroughs of such major significance they formed the next giant leap in building the Bridge for all to travel. Those milestones—those giant leaps—are precisely what are found in the L. Ron Hubbard Congress Lectures.
And now, for the first time, they are all available to you.
When it comes to "being there with Ron," there is nothing closer than hearing his Congress Lecturesand that is precisely what LRH intended when he first presented them. For well in excess of his training lectures to auditors, in the course of daily instruction, Congresses were a much rarer affairevery one an event in itself!
Typically held twice a year, most often in London and Washington, DCyet also in such diverse locales as Phoenix, Melbourne and JohannesburgCongresses were attended by those from all over the world: auditors and preclears, Scientologists new and old, and even their non-Scientologist friendseveryone was welcome.
And what they heard were Ron's announcements of the latest breakthroughs and developmentseach one opening a new gate to personal freedom and ability, placing the next major block in building the Bridge we have today.
Each series contains a complete body of Dianetics or Scientology technology, detailing both its use in auditing and its application across all parts of lifeto the creation of a new civilization. In that regard, Congress Lectures contain the LRH programs to be applied by every Scientologist in their own zone of activity and which, as a combined whole, form the vital elements to clear the planet.
But most of all, these lectures are for your personal gain and progress. For here are the traps unlocked, one by one, and the knowledge to stay free of them forever. That's why Congresses are the lectures to be heard by every Scientologist.
Every Congress Lecture Series is listed within this site, in the sequence it was delivered. While each encompasses its own subject, and can be heard by itself without prior study, a chronological study has the benefit of allowing you to see how the subject progressed and which are the highest levels of development.
But no matter which Congress you listen to next, you will want them all. For the LRH Congress Lectures contain far more than the watershed advances that built the Bridge to Total Freedom. There's also that special air of something more. It's what Scientologists speak of when trying to describe the unique feeling one gets just from listening to Ron. Where the complete experience far transcends even the magnificent data itself. All of which is to say, the very essence of what millions have come to know and love as "Ron's lectures"those are the Congresses.
