Yeah, I know, it’s June ALREADY and the lunacy of UMers has reached a new zenith. They’re still crapping on about how I’m a cyber-bully and they ARE NOT A CULT. And there’s still more shenanigans than we can poke sticks at.
June 17: EPA CON-ference June 22
It’s a year since we took a look at the money for nothing Esoteric Practitioners Association, the ‘accrediting body’ for Serge’s phoney healing modalities, and revealed it for the scam it is, ‘in truth’. Remember, I asked why no one had ever clapped eyes on their ‘highest code of conduct in the world’, and suddenly there it was on the EPA website (still coming soon since 2009), whisked in on the express shuttle from Arcturus or somewhere with a few healing symbols. And then I found Eso practitioners are all in breach of the thing, and the worst offenders are Kate Greenaway and Serge.
They then hastily went public with the ‘4th annual EPA conference’ that no one’s ever heard of, and forgot to disclose the ticket price, on top of the money for nothing annual fees. It sounded scintillating – a talk or two from the usual sycophantic health professionals, some gentle breath meditation and some plugs for Natalie’s menstrual cycle app for blokes. Anyway, the conference (5th?) is scheduled on the UM Events Scam calendar for this Sunday the 22nd. But as usual there is not a peep about it publicly.
Is it like Hogwarts or something, and to be kept a secret from the Astral untouchables?
Or have they abandoned the thing out of shame?
And if the thing goes ahead, how much are they slugging the faith-full for tickets?
And what’s this year’s theme?
June 15: UM does Melbourne
Universal Medicine Trained Practitioners Showcase Esoteric Healing at Upcoming Melbourne’s Mind, Body, Spirit Festival
Look, I wasn’t going to bother posting about UMers trying to rope in new investors at the woo woo festivals, but too many notifications and smart arsed remarks ended up in my Inbox to ‘let it go-o-o-o’.
The simple and powerful esoteric healing modalities, originally presented by teacher Serge Benhayon, are acclaimed worldwide as a complement to mainstream medicine to support healing, health and wellbeing…
It’s a bit like cultists flogging their wares at Splenda in the Grass or other evil music festivals, or Nicola Lessing selling evil dairy-full ice-cream to untouchable Astral cultists. UMers are happy to slum it with evil New Agers at the Mind Body Spirit Festival if it means DOSH – even if Sergio says SPIRIT IS ENEMY OF THE SOUL!! 😮
“Serge Benhayon is known as the Healers Healer, there is no one like him working in Australia or internationally. The calibre of professionals that attend his workshops and train with him is testament to the work he is doing”, Terri-Anne Connors said.
Damned right about that, Terri-Anne.
Anyway, Serryn O’Regan was front and centre, getting her hands dirty doing healing demonstrations on mega pranic Reiki fans and crystal huggers and what not. I bet she needed a big CLEANSE after that.
She must have been taking time off from running the Esoteric Australian College of Massage and the dodgy College of UM, and her directorships of Esoteric Women’s Harm and UM Pty Ltd, or maybe she’s been busy trying to remember where it was she got Sergio’s bent modalities ‘accredited’.
And speaking of Esoteric Women’s Health, their next Wellness for Women deception is to be held at the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre in Melbourne. Lord only knows what a respectable women’s centre is doing associating themselves with that exploitative garbage. I notice the Centre’s CEO is Vidia Hickman. Does anyone know if she’s any relation to cult psychologist, Cynthia Hickman? And does anyone know anyone on the QVWC board? Please use the Contact form.
June 14: Not on the payroll, part of the family

False and misleading inquiry submissions
It took some time, but NSW state parliament posted some of the submissions to their inquiry into false and misleading health related information. More will be published in the next weeks, so we’ll see what else washes up, however Universal Medicine’s submissions are there – one from Alison Greig with Charles Wilson et al, one from Dr Maxine Szramka for the Esoteric Practitioners Association, LOL, one from Dr Sam Kim and a couple of other odd bods.
It was always going to be a bit of funniness. For a start UM misunderstood the Inquiry terms of reference and thought they were supposed to make a false and misleading submission. Someone should have cut that energy, Alison.
Anyway, when the Inquiry was called, a few of the more hare brained members of the ‘healing’ world started running around screaming the sky was falling and it seems UM jumped on that bandwagon. All sorts of paranoia erupted that the STATE was going to start sanctioning alternative therapies, freedom of speech and neck scarves etc. and UM’s submission reflects that with some crap about how if the HCCC starts clamping down on complementary health for making misleading claims, patients might miss out on some sort of amazing health benefits.
The thing is, the inquiry was about false and misleading health information and practices. For the government to do anything about those, a health service has to be shown to be pushing deception. Then they need to harm someone or piss them off enough for someone to lodge a complaint. UM has done all of the above. It takes a lot of dissatisfaction for people to lodge complaints.
The government isn’t concerned about people wasting money on woo woo. It’s the grievous bodily harm, death, molestation and rorting the Health Ministers are troubled by. For example, when anti-vaccination misinformation costs lives, or anti-fluoridation misinformation costs teeth, or when people pretend they’re therapists and start inventing lethal diets or molesting sexual abuse victims, or saying that Esoteric Breast Massage can assist gynaecological conditions or breast cancer.
UM’s submission was full of the usual – lying by omission, talking up the AMAZING EPA code of conduct that none of them abide by and a bunch of glowing testimonials
Anyway, well see how that rolls, but for now the fictitious facts and defamation blog is bitching that I’m a ‘self-appointed’ health-care activist. I’d ask if there’s some accreditation process I’m not aware of but I don’t want to give Serge ideas for new scams. Maybe I can get the jump on him and start up the Astral Activists Association Pty Ltd – the official accrediting body for Astral activists – with the lowest code of conduct in the world.
NOW GIMME YOUR MONEY.
June 7: Rick Ross Forum update
In 2012, our friend Herbert Kane began the Rick Ross cult education forum thread on Universal Medicine. It eventually ran for 154 pages until it was lost in August last year in a backup error.
Good news is Mr Ross contacted us to let us know he was in the process of retrieving it, and the entire thread is now back on line. I’ll update the links on my blogs ASAP. It’s here: http://forum.culteducation.com/read.php?12,107998
June 6: Who is Lance Martin?
Over at estherrockett.com Lance talks about how he became activist against the Universal Medicine cult and why the Brides of Serge are falsely defaming him and posting bad photos of him online.
Welcome to the Naming Names page Dr Amelia Stephens
Dr Stephens is a fresh faced medical graduate and GP working in Scarborough, Qld, whose been involved with UM for a few years, introduced by her devout mother. There is a suggestion her mother is an allied health professional and if anyone can provide more information on whether Amelia’s mother is publicly promoting UM or doing so through her practice, please leave it in the comments or use the Contact form.
Anyway, a few questions for Dr Stephens.
Do you advise patients to quit dairy foods and grains? If so, is that evidence based advice, and if it is, what evidence are you using?
Or do you tell your Medicare patients those foods are pranic and SERGE SAYS SO?
Do you advise patients to eat only when they feel hungry? Do you give that advice to diabetics or patients with eating disorders?
Do you advise patients to only see specialists, including surgeons, who are living the Esoteric lifestyle, or something close? Or do you refer patients to the specialists who have the best skills?
Do you advise patients to only vaccinate their babies when they ‘feel to’ and not out of a fear of disease?
Comments are open Dr Stephens. If you’re going to publicly promote UM, you ought to answer the questions.
Glory-arse muzak and the Battle of the Bands
Righto, I’m posting this latest demotional video for Michael Benhayon because it’s remarkable for two things. 1) Michael is a clone of Serge. Same voice, same language, same look, except Michael lacks Serge’s cocky smarminess. 2) Somewhere in this 10 minutes of talking about nothing, Rebecca or he or someone talks about how Michael and Miranda both have full time jobs (presumably sticking their hands on people and asking them for money), but they get up at 3 am every day to work on the hymns.
In other words, Serge’s drive for cash is relentless. The Benhayon family circus never stops trying to grift money. Do they take days off? Holidays?
Does his captive family ever get a moment to ponder on what this whole mess is built on, and where it’s headed?
And look only watch if you feel to, but if you can stay awake past 6 minutes (or just fast forward by dragging the cursor) there are some glimpses of the mysterious Miranda Benhayon. She sings, but has anyone heard her speak? And if so was there any evidence of her making an autonomous decision??
And Gawd! Glorious Music entered Battle of the Bands. SERGE SAYS ‘music is poison’ except for music the Benhayons make money out of BUT if there’s $10,000 up for grabs and some publicity, the Benhayon family Burlesque troupe are happy to muck in with all the suburban metal heads, punks, indies, folkies etc. A reader emailed, freaking out somewhat because UMers were doing their usual self-loving spamming of the votes and were in first place. There was no need to worry though, they never had a chance. The final 5 were decided last week, GM tanked, and Rachel Hall jumped on the Battle’s Facebook page with her gentle breath protests:
So few of the top 5 bands as voted by the fans did not make the final. Why was that? Disappointing that the fan votes don’t seem to count for much when it comes to making the final cut.
The Battle responded: Hi Rachel, Thanks for your feedback. Fans votes account for 50% and judging by a panel of music industry professionals accounts for 50% of the overall points. You can read our terms and conditions on the website.
Yes we fully understand that so how come the number one in the charts doesn’t make the final – unless the judges scored them zero? feels like a fix to me.
LOL. No Rachel. It’s called TASTE.
And you reckon I’m a troll.
