L'audition est au coeur de la scientologie. Il s'agit d'une technique où l'auditeur, en posant une série de questions, guide la personne auditée à travers ses souvenirs. L'audition est censée permettre de retracer et d'éliminer les traces laissées par les traumatismes passés. Cela ressemble parfois à l'hypnose et les personnes auditées affirment d'ailleurs souvent avoir revécu des moments passés de leur vie. Nos collaboratrices ont été initiées à l'audition au cours d'une fin de semaine de Dianétique, passage obligé pour tout ...
