Course Overview

The Dynamics of Existence Course

For millennia, Man has attempted to assess his place in this material world. How should he relate to the rest of life, and to his fellows? What are his true responsibilities, and to whom?

There were no definitive answers—not from the ancient Greeks, nor from the materialist thinkers of recent times.

And so it remained until L. Ron Hubbard realized his long sought-after goal: the discovery of a unifying principle that applied to all life, a common denominator by which all men and, indeed, all life, might be understood.

From this came a flood of discoveries that cast new light on the nature of man and life.

The principles in this course help one solve the ancient moral dilemma of right and wrong and bring about a new level of rationality. With them, one can align the various factors of existence, the right decisions when faced with choices and achieve a new perspective on the directions available in his life.

Mr. Hubbard expanded upon these principles in many other writings and lectures. But this course and corresponding booklet represent the essence of the subject and a practical approach to living successfully, used by millions.

Success Stories

“Really it was a fantastic experience learning about the dynamics [the various urges or drives through which one survives in life]. I now know such a fabulous thing that can help everybody to understand more about their feelings and how to change everything in their lives. It is a great tool for everybody, including teachers, counselors, parents, salespeople and everyone who has to deal with others.

“One person that I helped is now in love and totally free to live her relationship, after having suffered for more than ten years with a problem that, after having been viewed in the lens of the dynamics, vanished.

“With the tools and insights received during this course, I could help people with problems (a large range of them) that had been present in their lives for more than ten years or so, and everything has worked out with ease.

“I recommend everyone attend this course.” — J.M.

“The course helped me to look outside of myself and consider other areas that were often overlooked by myself, and which are often overlooked by others as well. The practical assignments helped me to view things on a much larger scale, particularly in determining optimum solutions.

“It was rewarding to help someone determine an ideal solution to a situation that she was facing by using the dynamics [the various urges or drives through which one survives in life] as a 'reference point.' This was a great win for both of us.

“I have begun to be involved in, and am much more attuned, to all of the dynamics as opposed to just a few since completing this course, and that really is a significant victory. Thank you for your guidance, encouragement, and assistance with this course.” — R.L.
