THE PURIFICATION CENTER Scientology Founder L.

The mural pays homage to the vibrant ocean landscape along this stretch of the California coast.
HUBBARD GUIDANCE CENTER The Hubbard Guidance Center is where Scientologists receive one-on-one spiritual counseling, known as auditing. Just beyond the waiting room are dozens of auditing rooms.
Each one of the auditing rooms is ideally appointed to provide the calm, distraction-free setting requisite to achieving spiritual enlightenment.

The Chapel also serves as an ideal venue for workshops, banquets and events, in the name of community collaboration for the betterment of Ventura.
THE OFFICE OF L. RON HUBBARD As is traditional in all Churches of Scientology, the Office of L. Ron Hubbard stands in honor of the religion’s Founder and symbolizes that this Church is true to his writings and ideals.
