The Universal Medicine cult building fund – the voice from heaven calls for more cash!Posted: December 1, 2013 Filed under: Cult Characteristics, cult front groups, dishonesty, financial exploitation, financial irregularities, Marketing, Money, money for nothing, Propaganda | Tags: College of Universal Medicine, Gabriele Conrad, Serge Benhayon, Sound Foundation Charitable Trust, Sound Foundation Charity, The Lighthouse Frome Somerset, UK Charity Commission 7 Comments
Esoteric Breast Massager and editor of cult leader Serge Benhayon’s self published tomes, Gabriel Conrad, had a profound and soul-full revelation at the 2012 UK Livingness retreat: multi millionaire Serge doesn’t have enough cash!! In the following fiery appeal to the faithful for evermore funds, Conrad gushes over Serge’s amazing GENEROSITY in allowing his students to pay for renovation of his property. She then plugs the spiritual benefits of donating to the guru’s tax exempt commercial scam with the fiction that students will ‘own our own building’ and that doing so is in defiance of the evil, conspiring, Astral Cult.
Whatever. One wonders if she’s emailed the faithful to tell them the Astral Cult, in the form of the UK Charity Commission, has the Sound Foundation under the microscope, and Serge’s UK church is at risk of losing the lot.
it has taken me a while to realise what was most important to me during the retreat at the Sound Centre in the UK recently and I would like to share it with you:
Serge called a meeting of all students attending the retreat who live in Australia one day while everybody else proceeded to go downstairs to dinner. We were 66 out of a total of 237 participants and Serge made us aware of the level of support that had been extended by the Europeans to the Sound Centre that had made this venue and this retreat possible.
In Australia, we have the grounds and the building to make this all happen, and whilst Serge is holding it at present (meaning he has purchased it and is paying the mortgage on it), it is not for him or Universal Medicine to make it happen beyond this initial stage.
I have asked Serge to help me with the details of what he talked about in the UK, and this is what he wrote:
“In order to get the College of Universal Medicine off the ground and make our very own building a reality, (approx.) $500 000 are needed initially to clad the space designated for healing courses, workshops and retreats and to provide toilets and parking. The expensive DA process was handled and lodged by Serge and his team of consultants. After much ‘toing and ‘froing, further expenses, more reports and much work, it has now been approved. This means we have the ‘go ahead’ to operate as a college. Serge has not asked for a reimbursement of any of the costly expenses /repairs thus far incurred. In affect, he is holding the complex for us to respond, or better still, make the call for it happen. And hence, the nature of this relay to you.
It is in the call or the response that makes these Hierarchical projects /work come-off. It works from us and our energy wanting it. It’s not just about money. Do you really think the Astral Plane would have allowed it through Council given that it is Serge lodging the DA and them having easy access to its premises? Not all the money in the world could have made it happen if the Astral Plane had its say. Fiery energy made it happen, and not just money. We have thus a grand opportunity to have our very own building, which initially will need the $500k with an option to purchase the whole premises at a later date; the price being (approx) $2.5m or no more than Serge paid for it.”
Our very own building:
For those of you who did not attend the retreat in the UK, let me give you but a mere few snippets of what is possible once we own our own building, or, in other words, an overview of the level of support and love we as participants received whilst attending the retreat:
There is a new dormitory on site, people could hop into Simone’s love pool at designated times, the meeting hall upstairs was amazing and warm at 5:30 in the morning for Esoteric Yoga and last but not least, the food which was prepared on site in the commercial kitchen downstairs was simply heavenly – and all this is possible once we own our own building.
What is also possible when we work from our own premises is something like the retreat for chronically ill people, which took place on the Saturday and Sunday after our retreat: 10 participants attended with medical files long enough to wallpaper all of Buckingham Palace – their retreat was at no cost to them and they got to experience the love, support and the nurturing we as participants had experienced the week prior plus the sessions they all had. And again, all this is possible if and only if, we own our own building.
As we all know and are starting to observe around us and live more and more, “everything is energy” – SB
– so what can happen if we as a student body get behind this building?
And what does it mean to get behind this building? And why can’t Serge do it?
I don’t know how you feel about Serge, what you think about or of him – for myself, I know that amongst other things, he is a 5th degree Initiate and a member of the Hierarchy or in short, the voice from heaven for our times and the world at this juncture in human history. Not to mention the juncture in our life, or should that be many lives?
Seemingly miraculously, we find ourselves within easy reach of these amazing life-changing teachings and revelations that keep pouring forth from the Hierarchy and that have turned our lives around to a degree that we never thought possible and had long given up on.
Should you agree, the question now is whether we, as a student body, can give this amazingness a base to establish and truly earth itself, a base to work from and reach all of humanity one by one and to match to a small degree what has been so ever-lovingly poured out by Serge and the Hierarchy.
I did not ask for this work, I had long ago forgotten that it even existed. When Serge brought this up in an EDG he said that not even he himself had asked for it – which makes me wonder — what is possible when we actually ask for it and get behind our very own building?
As Serge wrote recently,
“There is so much more to come ….. expect to be amazed but never surprised” – SB
Gabriele Conrad, June 2012
Our very own building?
We’ve heard that before, remember?
On the construction of the Sound Foundation Conference Facility in Somerset, UK:
The unimed charity in the UK has now got a 2.5million pound centre with kitchen, hall, accommodation and indoor swimming pool all for use for courses, retreats etc all purchased through student donations. It is not owned by anyone but by all of us for everyone to use. The direction of the centre and the charity is made in response to the call from the student body. It is run independently from unimed and ‘the lighthouse’. EDG notes taken by Michael Dixon,18 February 2012.
In both the UK and Australia we (Universal Medicine) now have charity status. This means that people can donate money. In the UK there has been 2.5 million pounds raised and this money belongs to the student body and the student body has built a conference centre where all the courses can be held as well as retreats and also free retreats for those who are ill. EDG notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, February 18, 2012, p.5.
The Third Sector has reported the UK Charity Commission are monitoring the Sound Foundation’s activities and the SF has ‘been given an action plan that they will need to satisy the Commission they have completed by 1 May 2014.’ In other words, the UKCC uncovered serious irregularities in Chris James’ bogus charity regarding public benefit and conflicts of interest and have issued them with a compliance deadline.
Our contacts in the UK tell us the Charity Commission has powers to seize a charity’s assets and reallocate them to authentic charities operating to benefit the public, rather than a bunch of cult leeches. Just think, UM investors, how will that feel to lose all that money you’ve donated, and continue to donate, when the assets are confiscated and given away to an organization more worthy?
Students were also told they would own the College of Universal Medicine, Wollongbar, Australia:
In Australia Serge bought a property for the student body so that he could secure it. It is not for him. The student body will have to buy back this property from Serge. (If of course they want their own place). If they do not want it then Serge will sell it. It is not for him. EDG notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, February 18, 2012, p.5.
If students own the property, where are their share certificates? What do they get for ‘owning’ Serge’s business premises, while he holds the titles, rents out the premises to his ‘College’ – including during its renovation, at the expense of the charity, and takes home the cash profits from UM events? The truth is they’re paying for repeat attendances at workshops, retreats and healings and money for nothing products on top of the substantial donations they’ve made to lower Benhayon’s business overheads.
It’s an obvious scam and an abuse of the charity system.
And look Gabriele, I don’t know if I’d be adding editor of Sergio the bullshitter’s spherical bibles to your curriculum vitae. Our friend in the publishing industry has taken a look at the self published scribblings of the Prince of Pisstakes and concluded there’s only one way to edit that tripe.
With a chainsaw.
The UK Charity Commission hands compliance plant to the Sound Foundation – charity front for the Universal Medicine cult
The Way of the Livingness – when the Universal Medicine ‘religion’ was denied charity status in the UK
The Tax Exempt Sound Foundation Charity – donating to Serge Benhayon’s UK church
The tax exempt College of Universal Medicine – donating to the church of $erge
“…people could hop into Simone’s love pool at designated times”
That made me spit my coffee.
Seriously, though, this is really disturbing. Just think you’ve got an understanding of how extreme Serge’s brainwashing is, you read the following and realize just how far gone these people are:
“I don’t know how you feel about Serge, what you think about or of him – for myself, I know that amongst other things, he is a 5th degree Initiate and a member of the Hierarchy or in short, the voice from heaven for our times and the world at this juncture in human history. Not to mention the juncture in our life, or should that be many lives?”
I’m sure any student reading this will dismiss me as a loveless, abusive member of a hate group, but I honestly think it’s as sad as it is disturbing.
Serge has damaged these people’s lives beyond belief and they think it’s a blessing.
It’s an utter, tragic waste.
You might have seen Sergio the Divine Dropkick’s latest tome is titled ‘An Open Letter to Humanity’, lol. The piss takes never end, and the cult members keep proving they have no concept of irony.
Anyway, we bunged the title through the reality tester translator, which has just had a grease and oil change, and it came out with this title: ‘A dictatorial diatribe of inhumanity, no I will not answer questions, fuck you, gimme your money.’
And this weeks best Google search term: ‘esoteric men with breasts’. Keep em coming. We like the larfs.
The cult doesn’t.
Given Serge’s demonization of “menful energy”, not to mention the fact both he and Natalie have successfully capitalizing on convincing the gelded gents that they too have periods, it may not be surprising to see reports of esoteric men with breasts being sighted in the greater Byron Bay area sometime soon.
Perhaps this is what Serge meant when he predicted the return of the divine hermaphrodite in one of his wannabe L. Ron Hubbard sci-fi novels.
“I don’t know how you feel about Serge, what you think about or of him – for myself, I know that amongst other things, he is a 5th degree Initiate and a member of the Hierarchy or in short, the voice from heaven for our times and the world at this juncture in human history. Not to mention the juncture in our life, or should that be many lives?
Seemingly miraculously, we find ourselves within easy reach of these amazing life-changing teachings and revelations that keep pouring forth from the Hierarchy and that have turned our lives around to a degree that we never thought possible and had long given up on”
“Each time we investigate a sociopath, we find that they always have a little cult group following of spellbound worshippers who consider that particular sociopath to be a “guru” or “prophet.”
Sociopaths are masters at influence and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they’re extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they’re just making them up out of thin air.”
The voice from heaven? OMG. How deluded. And this is what most of them do “feel”. Well I know what I think of him. Amongst other things, he is a scammer, liar, deluded, shameless homewrecker, and egocentric nut job whose made prisoners of his family and followers in a fantasy pulled right out of the air which has him as the cosmic hero, and to which they pay to subscribe.
And that is leaving out his other “qualities” which he confesses to constantly.
Gabrielle is complicit in his stupidity, fantasy and his scamming. For the cognitively challenged, Serge is raising funds via his “charity” to improve his property at Wollongbar, which he will then use to run his courses, thus saving him on hiring halls, while charging a commercial rent back to the charity, so that he, as the owner, continues to have cashflow and profit.
He even has a company set up to deal with that property. He says that at some date they can buy it off him because he is doing them the ‘favour’ of holding it. Of course if that ever happens, it will be at a profit to Serge. But I wouldn’t bet on it while there’s money to made.
There is no charitable ideals at work here. Just a way of avoiding tax on incoming funds, and company tax, while improving Sergio’s holdings.
Business man? Voice from heaven? Who do we believe, Serge or Gabrielle? I guess it depends on the day and who’s asking the question. Integrity? Not an iota. Just one lie folded into another.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive…”
And boy, did Serge have a lot of practice. And now the members are enlisted, doing the same. They call it truth.
It’s probably worth re-posting this link here in case it got lost in the comments on the last update. It’s well worth reading for ‘student’ and ‘loveless, abusive hate-blogger’ alike:
That said I doubt the UM crowd will bother to read it, let alone absorb it.
After all, they’re not in a cult. Funnily enough, nobody has ever been in a cult. Ask anyone in a cult if they’re in a cult and they’ll answer “no”. That would be a ridiculous insinuation. As if they could get fooled into being in a cult? Each person will defend their particular guru, leader, world-teacher, healer, ascended master as being different from all the others. He’s the real deal. Serge is that figure in this case. The only legitimate voice from heaven. Fifth level initiate. Multi-reincarnated genius. Ascended master. Member of the Hierarchy. Real estate tycoon. Ex-bankrupt who didn’t need to try his hand at new age healing because he was uber-successful and life was cruisy as an elite tennis coach.
No, Serge isn’t a fraud. He’s the only real deal in a world full of charlatans, most of whom have disturbingly similar modes if operation to Serge. Many of whom make almost identical claims to represent the Hierarchy on Earth. A quick google search for ‘Ascended Masters’ ‘Hierarchy’ ‘Djwal Khul’ etc shows there are hundreds of these fraudsters out there, all making essentially the same claims.
But no, Serge is different. He’s “The One”
Actually I wish I had the chutzpah and lack of self awareness required to start a cult. There is clearly a ready made market for anyone who says they have the answer, not matter how wild the claims are. In fact, the more out there they are, the more likely people are to suck it up. I think I know why too. If you say something that is within the realms of possibility, people can test it against their experience. If you say crazy things-with a straight face- they either choose to believe it, or reject it. If you get 10 people to believe it, you can get 100, and if you can get 100, you’ve got a cult. Easy.
You don’t need to be consistent, or make sense. All you need to do is keep them guessing and keep telling them you know everything, or at least the way to know everything. And keep asking for money. Lots of it.
It is certainly a lot easier than running a regular, reality tested business. And the ATO gives you a tax break if you write crazy letters and cry uncontrollably at the thought of the tax free income. The only downside is you have to be prepared to toy with people’s lives and emotionally and morally bankrupt people- but what they hey if you can make million$$$. After all, you would deserve it because you knew everything and the followers are too stupid to get how smart and special you are.
I’m thinking about it. I reckon if I just start saying I know everything, I’ll have a few hangers on by Friday night.
Oh No LOF not another one! Not another cult leader.
$erge would threaten you with legal action because of Copywright/copycat etc
You would go from a hate blogger to a competitor.
Gabriele Conrad’s letter,comments etc (if we didn’t know other wise) read like a sick joke – and they all fall for it! One never stops shaking ones head in dismay.
Tomorrow (4th December) UM will be trying to recruit Doctors and Nurses etc. UM sees good healthy bank accounts there. Money money money.
Fingers crossed no one turns up, and if a few do that they quickly see the light and run.
It is a $cam and it is such an ABUSE OF THE CHARITY SYSTEM. No integrity in this lot at all.
