Scientology

Jeffrey Lewis was a Scientologist. In 2005, he made a statement on the official website of the Church of Scientology, stating, "Achievements in Scientology directly coincide with the growth in my career. It's hard to single out any particular technique, but it's worth mentioning that as an artist, I was surrounded by destructive judgments, actions, and connections, all of which I myself achieved. Using Scientology techniques, I eliminated a large part of all this and continued to eradicate. This resulted in greater freedom and the intention to create my own future. By the way, this gives a sense of greater height, reaching a vantage point from which you look at life - past, present, and future..."
