The exhibition was part of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Pacific Goodwill Tour headed by Pacific Director Mathew Andrews with assistance of locals.
Nineteen subjects were presented during the free seminars that covered topics like how to communicate and understand others better, how to improve your standard of living, solutions to alcohol and drug abuse, how to improve your ability to study and learn, what makes a successful marriage, get trained in disaster response techniques and how to be an effective leader.
One participant of the seminar John Lobo from Guadalcanal said what he has learnt during the seminars were something really different and has changed his life.
“I understand many things such as how to communicate, the technology of study, public relations, how to resolve conflicts, etc. that I have learnt from Scientology.
“The knowledge helps me as a Pastor, a husband, a father, a Christian and overall as a human being,” Mr Lobo said.
Chris Narasia from Savo who undertook all subjects presented at the seminar echoed the same sentiments.
“What I learned pinpointed exactly where things have gone wrong in my life, family and country as a whole.
Another student from Malaita Saul Salefafia said he will continue to make sure that others have the chance to also learn Scientology so they too can have ways to better understand life and make a better life for themselves and others.
The Scientology pacific director Mr Andrew said his six months Goodwill Tour in the country has ended.
He said he hope scientology volunteers in the country will continue to help others with the “simple but powerful techniques they learned from the exhibition”.
“I’m happy to have been so warmly welcomed and to have the chance to spend time to get to know the customs and cultures of the Solomon Islands,” the director said.
Scientology when first introduced and made known in the country has been criticised by some individuals however was able to successfully completed its mission in the country.
The exhibition was held from April 21 to May 11.
