Jason shattering suppression: “When you receive auditing, you see how your past decisions stay with you and unknowingly affect your life today. Once you uncover those decisions, you´re not the effect of them anymore. What has been successful for me though is making Scientology a priority. You know, I might have missed a couple nights being out with my friends. But it´s so great when you look back and you´re so glad that somebody pushed you through the barriers, through the relatively unimportant stuff that didn´t matter — another party I would have gone to vs. spiritual freedom, you know?”

Jason is part of a family that is one of the largest fundraising sources in the church. Doug Dohring founded Age of Learning, a company that produces, the learning web program for toddlers.
