The Auditing Session
The primary way that Scientology principles are applied to an individual is called auditing — from the Latin word “audire,” meaning “to listen.”
It is the central Scientology practice, and is delivered by an auditor, “one who listens.” In an auditing session, the auditor helps another examine specific areas of their existence so they can rid themselves of unwanted spiritual conditions and increase awareness and ability.
The E-Meter® pastoral device
The Electropsychometer, or E-Meter measures the mental state or change of state of a person, helping the auditor locate areas of spiritual distress or travail so they can be addressed and handled in a session. The E-Meter does not in itself do anything to a person. It is a highly sensitive instrument that reacts to changes in mental activity.
