In January of 1965, L. Ron Hubbard traveled to the Canary Islands to begin intensive research on the spiritual nature of the origins of humans.
He returns to Saint Hill later that month.
His activities during the remainder of the year brought significant organizational and technical breakthroughs as a result of his years of work at Saint Hill.
The Classification and Gradation Chart was released, laying out the exact steps to follow in Scientology counseling and training to achieve higher states of awareness and ability.
In November, L. Ron Hubbard announced and implemented the seven-division organizing board. This was a major breakthrough in the successful pattern of operation of any group. It had a universal application and has been in use in all Churches of Scientology and an increasing number of other organizations since its release.
The Saint Hill Special Briefing Course - Year 5
The Saint Hill Special Briefing Course is the largest single course in Scientology. It consists of a comprehensive and chronological study of the entire development of Dianetics and Scientology and contains the largest, broadest body of information on the subject of human behavior, the mind and life that has ever been available.
The course is named after Saint Hill Manor in England, Mr. Hubbard’s residence during much of the 1960s, and where he taught the course from March 1961 to December 1966. This covers an intense period of his research, leading to many important discoveries. Auditors came from all over the world to Saint Hill and were present when Mr. Hubbard developed the Bridge to Total Freedom and many of the procedures that today form a large part of any preclear’s auditing. The course was hugely popular and auditors who returned to their areas from Saint Hill were regarded with enormous respect.
