All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

My name is Grace Aaron. My husband, Ken, and I were both declared suppressive by the Church of Scientology in the spring of 2000. Our son, Zachary, was pressured to disconnect from me, his mother, Ken, his father, and Johnny, his brother. We have had only minimal communication with him since that time.
We have filmed several interviews with other victims of the Scientology practise of disconnection. We recently added two new interviews. Aida Thomas, who trained in Scientology to the very high status of Class 8 Auditor, is the guest on both shows. These videos can be accessed at:
If you have seen or spoken with Zack Aaron or any of the many other people who have been pressured into disconnecting from family members, please consider sending me a personal e-mail. I would very much like to hear news about Zack and will do my best to transmit news to other relatives about their 'lost' family members.
If you get the chance to watch any of the videos or view the website, let us know what you think of them. Also, let me know if you have any trouble with the site or with viewing any of the videos.
Thanks to all of you who have given me feedback already. Many, many people have already viewed my interviews with Dave Sweetland, Patty Braine and Kelly Blanpied. These videos are now being linked to from many different places and have been mirrored and copied and passed around. We know that over 5,000 people have accessed them on Google alone. We have received some heart rending e-mails in response to these videos. If there is any way we can help any of you to speak out on this subject let us know.
If you are a victim of religious shunning and would like to be interviewed please contact us by e-mail. Also, if any of you would be willing to be interviewed who have enforced, ordered or shunned another or others we would be very interested. We are in the Los Angeles area, so that is where the interview would take place. Religious shunning is practiced by other groups besides Scientology and we are more than willing to interview anyone who has experienced shunning related to any group.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of religious shunning (or perpetrator, for that matter) and would like us to post your story on our website but are not close enough to Los Angeles to be interviewed, please contact us. We can work with written communications, photos, home video, etc. The more people who speak out using their real names the better.
Again, thank you all for the encouragement, assistance and support. It is much appreciated.
