Laura Prepon is a Scientologist. You've probably heard a bit or two about Scientology. Maybe you saw that Tom Cruise video a few years back where he went on and on about Scientology "tech" and how only Scientologists can really help people.
When Laura Prepon spoke to Celebrity Magazine, which is an official Scientology publication, she went all out with the lingo. To an outsider, Scientology may sound pretty far-fetched. But some wonder if there may be something to it if celebrities like Prepon, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, and a host of others credit it with their success.
"So when I first got into Scientology, I did Personal Values and Integrity and then Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. These courses touched on the observations I was aware of when I was younger. It was right there in black and white. It was amazing, and I felt that finally something was speaking my language. It totally connected with me. Pretty soon after that I got onto the Purification Rundown, and I started moving up the Bridge."
How scientific is the Church of Scientology? I'm guessing by the name that the answer is "really very scientific" - but I might be wrong.

Laura Prepon says the Auditing process in Scientology has given her a perspective on her career that serves her.
" A big realization I had in my auditing is that there is a bigger picture," Prepon said. "This is my career but it does not define me. I am so much bigger than this career and industry. It’s my job and it’s very important to me, but, when I have huge wins in session, and when you really cognate that you are a thetan and you have a mind and body, and that the MEST universe does not control you—it puts things into perspective. It takes the weight off you and things become very easy."

Prepon says that the auditing process "has stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions and mis-emotions that were affecting me. I can move so freely up and down the Tone Scale."
Prepon worried that she might miss her emotions as an actress.
"I used to have this funny idea that the higher I went up the Bridge, I wouldn’t be as emotional about stuff. And I was worried because I’m an actress and as an artist, I need to tap into my emotions! What soon started happening was that the higher I went on the Bridge and the more auditing I had, I could move so much more freely on the Tone Scale. My emotions were so much more tangible and easy to access."
