About Pierre Ethier

My photo

Pierre Ethier have worked for and with the Church of Scientology for over two decades, assuming various posts and eventually reaching the Highest training level (Class XII) achieved by only a handful few. Alain Kartuzinski, a Class XII C/S who was for a long time one of the Snr C/Ses at the Flag Service Org, used to call Pierre “The King” when referring to him as an auditor, perhaps because he had in a way become to Scientology auditing what Elvis became for Rock and Roll.

 Pierre Ethier was trained in the Church of Scientology up to Class XII Auditor, and audited at the Flag Service Organization (FSO) for over 17 years. Between 1981 and 1992, Pierre Ethier was Flag top auditor every single year.

Pierre Ethier spent over 20 years as a staff member of the Church of Scientology studying the religious technology and helping people through religious counseling. Staff members of the Church are volunteer Ministers, who work full time on a charitable volunteer basis without a pay. After his departure from the Church in 1992, Pierre builds a very successful IT career dating back from the beginning of the Internet era with the start up of the second largest ISP in the province of Quebec.  Pierre Ethier holds a number of current prestigious professional certifications in the IT field.

Pierre Ethier is an Applied Scientology Processing Auditor who mastered the delivery of the famous “ Ls “ Rundowns in their powerful original. He speaks fluently English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish and delivers auditing in all five languages traveling around the world.

Pierre Ethier has been passionate about helping others with advanced Spiritual Counseling. He have helped over 5000  people who were seeking to become more able by strictly applying what has been demonstrated to work Pierre  helped many people to attain self-fulfillment for more successful and happier lives. As people go closer to the Advanced Spiritual levels and find increased joy in life, their lives are affected for the better.

 “Being a Class XII does not merely mean trained to audit the Ls as some misguided people who got hold of part the Ls and started auditing them might think. Being an authentic Class XII is many light years beyond that.”

The partial list of PCs Pierre Ethier has audited and published by the Church of Scientology consists of roughly 3500 people. It is by no means the complete list of the over 5000 people Pierre has audited at Flag. With virtually no exception he enjoyed auditing each of those people. Pierre is going over the list and recalling the gains and life changing improvements. His ultimate desire is for each of these people to reach happiness and spiritual Freedom, whether they achieve it in the Church of Scientology or in another.

 A lot of those names have not been on Flag completion list for a very long time. Each and everyone should be told that “NO CHURCH HOLDS A MONOPOLY ON SPIRITUAL FREEDOM OR THE STATES OF BEINGNESS PROMISED BY L. RON HUBBARD“. Anyone can move forward from whatever point they have been stopped, betrayed or given arbitrary actions that were not designed to help them.


Pierre Ethier - Applied Scientology Processing Auditor Class XII





Anyone who has been deeply involved in Scientology, such as being on staff, the Sea Org or being part of delivering its services as an auditor, like I was, received continuous indoctrinations to make him/her accept all form of data without questioning it or even examining it.  To the outsider, such data, when accepted by the recipient is correctly labeled as Dogma.

Most of my peers, swallowed one Dogma after another without giving it a second thought. Being of a somewhat different nature, I never could accept a datum without understanding it first. I was often criticized for it, but realized from the start that my personal Integrity depended on believing only in what I choose to believe in on my own, not what I was merely ordered to.

Divergent and Splinter Groups were uniformly labeled as Suppressive, thought it was never explained how they were so. My questions about what they were, their activities and in which way they supposedly harmed people were never answered, except by the universal platitudes: "They teach junk", "They are run by evil people with a discreditable past (or by perverts)" "They harm anyone they touch".

I distinctively remember coming across the word AMPRINISTICS and finding it impossible to locate a definition. My efforts at truly clarifying its meaning were strongly discouraged. The only thing I needed to know is that it was a Suppressive group seeking to Harm Scientology and run by criminals.

It is only after I left the Church that I discovered (no thank to the Church of Scientology who has kept the issue hidden as it proved subsequently to be an embarrassment), what the word means or what it was.

AMPRINISTICS is a made up word by its creator Harold Thompson (1922-1994) , when he left the Church around 1964 to pursue his own ideas. He was joined by Jack Horner*, who used to be one of L. Ron Hubbard most trusted friends and Edgar Watson, one of the top auditors at the time.

*( Jack Horner was trusted enough for LRH to invite him to conduct by himself the 1st South African Advanced Clinical Course, as LRH had commitments elsewhere).

AMPRINISTICS is composed out of the words AMPLIATIVE (extending a simple concept) and PRINCIPLE (beginning/fundamental truth as basis of reasoning).

I do not have enough information to properly evaluate the merits or drawback of that philosophy, since I have not been able to get my hands-on works that explain its procedures in details. In 2001, his widow, Nancy Gould Thompson published a book: "Amprinistics : the simple truth : the first scientific psychology" / Harold Thompson.

Amprinistics uses ideas that are found in Certainty Processing, Rising Scale Processing and Concept Therapy/Processing from 1951-1953 and combines them with ideas from R6EW (1962-1964)  to seek to release sections of the Mind and specific aberrations.

The Advertisement of Amprinistics promotes it as a senior form of Scientology and is extremely enthusiastic about claims of results. How accurate were their claims? It is impossible to tell. The church, prompted by L. Ron Hubbard himself has gone out of its way to destroy that group, its principals and anything it published.

After a few years ,both Jack Horner and Edgar Watson left to start their own practices, no doubted prompted by the Intense Third partying campaign the Church instigated which had for avowed goal to get each of the founding members at each other's throat.

L. Ron Hubbard got so ticked off about the group daring to use his ideas mixed with their own that he vowed the demise at any and all costs.

He started by writing an Executive Letter (the predecessor to LRHED) dated 27 September 1965 called AMPRINISTICS. That issue is now hard to find because it L. Ron Hubbard rhetoric and unproven assertions proved to be such an embarrassment, that the Church now denies its existence.

L. Ron Hubbard starts by making a big deal of them being all allegedly homosexuals, in spite of the accusations later in that same issue that one of them had indiscriminately fathered multiple children and abandoned their mothers. It merely reflects on Hubbard homophobia and consequently the Church of Scientology viewing Hubbard's words as "scriptures" privately labeling all homosexuals as perverts and insane. They may something else in their PR, but I have read the pc folders of over 100 different Homosexuals and each of them was branded a pervert and insane by their case Supervisor. There were no exception.

Hubbard continues with his generalities calling them thieves and criminals but never once giving the slightest details even vague ones. He then goes on stating; "We don’t really want them any harm".

catherine-ethier-wife-of-pierre-ethier-plus-dreamsContradicting himself, Hubbard continues on the next page: "They are each Fair Game, can be sued or harassed...  Watson is a set-up for arrest as Homosexual. Any meeting held by them should be torn up. the names of people attending should be collected and they should be labeled SP, as they have left Scientology.(Now we have Hubbard clearly stating that if you leave or disagree with Scientology you are a Suppressive Person: something the Church of Scientology does with abandons, because L. Ron Hubbard says so)

Hubbard continues with his vitriol: "If any of them move in your area get them arrested or deported on whatever grounds".


(1) Do not Mention the name Amprinistics in public, in our magazines or issues.

(2) Harass these persons in any possible way.

(3) Label publicly their ideas as Suppressive and designed to deny people case gains.

(4) Tear up any meeting held and get the names of those attending and issue SP orders and you'll have a lot of rats.

L. Ron Hubbard 27 September 1965


Amprinistics, never amounted to anything bigger than a few hundred adherents and therefore never threatened the Church of Scientology income. The Church has never published any account of a single person being harmed by that practice. If they had found any, they would have published them in all their gore. Therefore the inescapable conclusion is that AMPRINISTICS never harmed anyone nor anything except L. Ron Hubbard's pride.  Harold Thompson survived L. Ron Hubbard by 8 full years. In 2001, the Amprinistics Society was still active, making Hubbard's forecast in 1965 that " in a few months will never be heard of again" entirely inaccurate
