The TR’s or “Training Routines” are the first courses a new Scientologist will take when starting on “The Bridge to Total Freedom”. Scientology states that these exercises improve a person’s communication skills but critics say they can induce an out of body/euphoric feeling and are in reality a covert method of hypnosis. Either way, these courses are fundamental to the Scientology experience and are referred to and reinforced throughout the entirety of one’s participation in Scientology.
