Pinkett Smith addresses the controversy surrounding her connection to Scientology, including how she and Smith homeschooled their children with fundamentals tied to the religion.

“Some of the controversy about my approach to education probably had to do with the use of the Study Technology learning method that I’d discovered when I was introduced to Scientology,” she writes. “Study Tech, although it came from Scientology, is legally defined as secular.”

As someone who has studied multiple religions and has had experiences at the Ethical Society, Pinkett Smith explains, she “didn’t hold the same stigma around the Church of Scientology that most do.”

“I was very clear when I stepped into the Church of Scientology that becoming a member would not be possible, nor was it my goal. My goal was to embrace the Basic Study Manual to educate myself about a method of learning.”

She also enrolled her biological father Robsol in Narconon, a rehabilitation program that utilizes techniques developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

“Rob was very clear that Narconon had saved his life when we all believed there was no hope, which was why he kept going further into his studies in Scientology,” she explains.

However, her father eventually stopped his studies after he learned that some of their spiritual beliefs conflicted with his own. Pinkett Smith’s Scientology studies “came to an end soon after.”
