After extending his stay in Washington, D.C., for an additional 13 lectures, L. Ron Hubbard returned to Saint Hill for a week before traveling back to South Africa in late January. There, he not only delivered more than 20 lectures that further detailed the means of realizing an individual’s spiritual goals but also developed a refined pattern of organization for Scientology churches.

For his “Ocean Archaeological Expedition: to study underwater sites of historical interest such as submerged cities,” he was awarded a second Explorers Club flag.

Mr. Hubbard returned to Saint Hill in late March. In May, he began giving Saint Hill Special Briefing Course lectures. This provided a comprehensive training program for Scientology auditors in which the entire history of technical development was covered.

For the next five years, he dedicated his time to continuing his research into states of existence and released his breakthroughs and new technology to the students of the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course. His discoveries and developments from this period became an essential part of the route to Clear and advanced spiritual states.

Mr. Hubbard's time was also devoted to developing and standardizing administrative policy for the churches.
