New Advanced Organizations on the Horizon
To dramatically speed the progress of parishioners on their spiritual journey to the highest levels in Scientology, Mr. David Miscavige, ecclesiastical leader of the religion, inaugurated a program to establish Advanced Organizations on every continent. As the title implies, these organizations open wide the gateway to the highest spiritual levels. As another indication of the Church’s meteoric growth, in the previous five decades there were four Advanced Organizations. By 2009 three more were in the making, completing the Scientology global staircase to eternity.
ADVANCED ORGANIZATION AFRICA
Kyalami Castle is the future home of the Advanced Organization in Africa. Set on 22 acres between Johannesburg and Pretoria, it is known locally as the Place in Heaven. The facility is ideally suited to provide advanced Scientology religious services, with perfectly appointed rooms for study and spiritual counseling and a great hall to accommodate more than 1,000 at Scientology events and seminars. It also includes facilities for a religious retreat to provide the ideal setting for African Scientologists to ascend the Scientology Bridge to spiritual freedom.
ADVANCED ORGANIZATION CANADA
An idyllic property less than 30 minutes from the Toronto airport will serve as the Advanced Organization for Canadian parishioners and Canada’s Continental Liaison Office. Formerly an inn and conference center, the facility consists of five separate buildings totaling 159,400 square feet on 190 acres.
ADVANCED ORGANIZATION LATIN AMERICA
Palmas Plaza in the Las Lomas area of Mexico City comprises 254,000 square feet and will house not only the Advanced Org but also the Continental Liaison Office for Latin America. With seven Churches in Mexico, as well as Churches and Missions throughout South and Central America, this Advanced Org will serve the growing needs of 21 countries.
