March 20: The Wollongbar Church of Serge flings open its doors – almost
Of course when one follows the link one encounters:
Saturday 21st MARCH 2.00pm – 5.30pm (NSW DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME)
Registration: 1.30pm to 2.00pm
Fee: No charge
Bring your own means of hydration and a pillow/cushion for your own comfort.
Booking essential. Please login to your account and book online. Thank you.
That thing is scheduled straight after the Esoteric Women’s Health Pty Ltd Forum to be held in the earlier half of the day, probably to rope in a few of the poor souls who rocked up expecting to hear something sensible about women’s health but copped an earful of how men give you cancer. I’m sure they will learn lots of other things give us cancer too, like playing sport, being interested in equal rights, having an intellect, eating dairy products, asking why little girls stay at Serge’s house, not wanting to burn books or defame complainants or touch other people’s genitals, or anything else non cult like.
I’d love to go, except I’ll probably get charged with stalking or hate crimes or being a ‘serial blogger‘ or something.
So, Sarah Davis, Alison Greig et al, drop me a line and let me know if I’m allowed to come and contribute without getting lynched. I know quite a lot about religion really, and I could run through a list of ways that religions are able to behave ethically.
But if it’s not safe for me to come and front a few score people who are obsessed with me to the point of keeping copies of every word I write, trashing my name and my livelihood most days of the week and have publicly called me mentally ill and a criminal, perhaps one of you could read out the following list I wrote on how to behave in ways that encourage public confidence:
- Answer questions in a way that satisfies the public of your accountability without becoming judgmental and punitive.
- Disclose Universal Medicine’s finances and explain why Serge insisted donations to his building funds had to be made anonymously. Issue receipts, account for all donations and how they are spent. Make independently audited financial statements public.
- Welcome shared decision making from followers. Encourage accountability and oversight.
- Quit setting unrealistic standards of spiritual attainment.
- Examine beliefs and attitudes of us versus them regarding followers and those who choose not to follow UM.
- Examine beliefs painting everything outside UM as evil and to be feared and despised.
- Discourage followers from becoming dependent on the group or its practices and teachings.
- Do not vilify outsiders or ex followers, and do not discourage followers from associating with non believers. Drop the superior attitude.
- Provide support for relationships that isn’t dependent on families, friends or partners subscribing to Esoteric beliefs and practices.
- Recognize privacy and reasonable boundaries. Halt all touching of erogenous zones in any context apart from private intimate and sexual relationships between consenting adults. Such touching is not ‘healing’.
- Accept other sources of knowledge outside of UM. Encourage questioning, free exchange of ideas, dialogue, debate, critical thinking and individual autonomy.
- Respect alternative viewpoints and opinions.
- Admit failings and mistakes and accept constructive criticism and advice.
- Publicly apologize for intrusive, harmful or offensive behaviour and allow outside input on addressing and preventing harm.
The list is based on Rick Ross’s list of warning signs of harmful groups.
March 16: The great untruths of Serge Benhayon
Richard Raymond has reemerged and jump started his Universal Medicine Cult blog with an exposé of Benhayon’s shifty financial dealings dating back to the nineties. The blog also traces the mundane origins of the belief system Serge commodified into a successful healing racket and commercial religion. The Great UnTruths of Serge Benhayon

UM’s cyberbullying hypocrisy makes news
Sunday Telegraph report – Jane Hansen: How Universal Medicine bullied me, complainants and critics.
I’ve blogged extracts of the report with some expansion of the facts, and our list of requests for Universal Medicine cult accountability: Universal Medicine’s bullying.
March 9: Sunday Tele update
Keep your hair on everyone. The Tele article was held over. There are no injunctions etc. and News Ltd hasn’t caved to the tantrums of the feral Brides of Sergio. It appears to be just a ho hum problem with fitting the thing into yesterday’s edition. It will get there. Don’t ask me when.
John Sweeney on reporting on cults
The fact UM published five webpages of slurs against Jane Hansen since Friday, before her next News Ltd article is even in print, brought to mind veteran reporter John Sweeney. Interviewed last year, he talked about the harassment he endured reporting on Scientology. Sweeney famously lost his cool on camera during the filming of BBC Documentary, ‘Scientology & Me’.
Although Sweeney routinely expresses regret whenever the outburst is mentioned – “People in the public eye should be civil to those they disagree with. It’s part of the engine oil of democracy” – he says a curious thing has happened in the years since. Former Scientologists have come to cite that incident as emblematic of Scientology in the 21st century.
“That image is what the church does to people,” he says. “I used to be a war reporter. I’ve been to many, many bad places in the world, and I had never been through anything like that.”
Sweeney has a record of tackling controversial subjects, having also written books on Britain’s arming of Iraq, Romania under Nicolae Ceausescu and tyranny in North Korea. But finding an outlet for an exposé of Scientology proved difficult.
“Nobody would touch the book,” says Sweeney. “No major publisher in Britain dared to buy it. Eventually my agent said, ‘I’ll publish it,’ and we’ve managed to sell 25,000 copies through Kindle and print-on-demand. But you’re not going to find it on any bookshelf. The problem with the church is that it generates fear and incapacitates people who would normally report on them.”
The following YouTube video (a bit of an amateur botch job sorry) shows the lead up to the big roar:
The pest, Tommy Davis, son of Hollywood actress, Anne Archer, later left Scientology. They pissed him off as well. The full BBC Panorama video (30 minutes):
March 8: Propaganda overkill backfire
I’m not sure what happened to the Daily Telegraph article that was going to run today, and I’m not planning on pestering Jane Hansen on her day off to find out. That’s the kind of thing Sarah Davis would do.
A reader posted this propaganda update in the comments:
Universal Medicine have in less than 24 hrs created 5 internet articles dedicated to condemning the Journo, Esther and Lance and there are over 222 comments and these are ticking over at a fast pace – BUT the article has not been released yet!
AND Serge never tells anyone what to do.
As we know, a bunch of the faith-full are at the Vietnam RETREAT, but obviously the gentle breaths are out the window, and the unisex Sons of God have escalated their all out war against Jane Hansen, News Ltd, Lance, Ira, me and dairy, sugar and rice.
I don’t need to read the blogs to know it will be the usual 100% bullshit, hysterics and hyperbole, but if you must read that tripe, and judging by the level of distress it causes some of you, I wouldn’t, please go via the following do-not-links, and the links on the fronts page.
Also, I’ve had a message from someone who thinks we should post corrections to the bullshit. If any of you want to write corrections, you’re welcome to do that in the comments. I’m not wasting time on it. As @fieryenergy stated from his/hers or its innermost wisdom:
Which is exactly what UM want us to do – waste time responding to literally thousands of lies repeated ad nauseum on those sites, when there are much more important jobs to do – one of which is leading my life, and the other is keeping focus firmly on the puppet master, exposing his secretive operations, his career of dishonesty and abuses, and the money trail.
Speaking of which, the pisstake prophet, the bogan messiah, his arse-holiness himself, now has his own devotional website, complete with glamour photography and whole new set of fictions about his self-styled ‘integrity’.

Keep a bucket handy.
March 7: @fieryenergy
A mysterious new Twitter account has shuttled in from Arcturus, and it’s just as Esoteric as Serge Benhayon, but ten times more fun.
I am The Way Of Livingness | Spreading Loveness | Breast Centred | I am The One | Open Neo-Esoterisist | Pro Evident Health | Reject Harmful-Theosophy
I like it so much I persuaded the rival Descended Maestro to post his, hers or its Twitter feed here on the blog – to the right of the page, immediately below the cult bashing music player. Do scroll through the whole thing. It’s a Glorious and joy-full sample of what can happen when the truly soul-full combines wit, discernment and a breast fixation into one post modern Twitter extravaganza of originals and retweets. Bravo!

March 5: Evolve College/Australian College of Massage – another commercial arm of Universal Medicine
If nothing juicily Astral happens this weekend, you’ll still have lots to read and kvetch about, what with the roll out of the big Australian College of Massage and Universal Medicine cult merger that is Evolve College. Over on the Accountability blog read up about how Evolve is flogging scam chakra-puncture as a ‘professional’ practitioner course, for pity’s sake – for eight grand. The publicity features most of the Benhayon family awkwardly jabbing each other, lol. I predict the next big roll out will be scam Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy, and there’s a post all about its occult carry on, its Esoteric business plan, and how it elevates your initiation and the divine light of your soul, or something.
The Connective Tissue Therapy brings the light up from your inner most through the connective tissue and removes prana from the inside out. This allows you to be in the light of your inner most, and when you embody it you re-create your fibrous body.
Women’s Health Forum & schools alert
The Byron Shire Echo was brimming with advertising for UniMed cult members this week, including Wimmin in Busyness, Dr Anne Malatt and real estate agent, Gail Fuller. Over the page, Esoteric Women’s Health was advertising their ‘free’ Women’s Health Forum, where they scout for women with breast and gynaecological disorders, flog Esoteric Breast Massage and other money for nothing Eso-products to them, and then hit the cancer patients up for bequests. Because Esoteric ‘self-nuturing’ is learning all about how your partner’s male energy and your loveless choices will give you cancer if they haven’t already, and the only hope to avoid lifetimes wracked by disease and misfortune is to $ub$cribe to the Way of the Livingness religion.
If it’s not bad enough they’re advertising that tripe in the Echo, a reader contacted me this week horrified because her son had brought a flyer home from school for the dreaded Women’s Health Forum, to be held at the College of Universal Medicine compound at Wollongbar at March 21. Please all reading, I’m strapped for time. Let your local school know this is not on. Ask them why schools are promoting a predatory commercial religion and at least direct them to the UM Wikipedia page. Or download the schools notification document here.
There’s been some suspicious attacks on my email accounts, so if you’ve been in touch with me take care and lock down. Watch out for suspicious, out of character emails asking you to click a link to receive a voicemail or something. Use two step authentification where you can. Use unique passwords for your accounts, and maybe get some password software. I recommend changing your email password and using your on screen keyboard to do it. Log in with that as well. Some readers might not know how to find their on screen keyboard so if one of our helpers could post some directions for OSX and Windows here in the comments. Sorry, I don’t have time. Please don’t freak out if I don’t respond to emails. My personal assistant buggered off. Kept whining about doing something that actually pays…
Hello Paula Fletcher, you’re as subtle as a sledgehammer as always, and about as intelligent. The cult, probably via Serge’s pet lawyer, Paula not on the payroll, has been spamming the government with Freedom of Information requests for official complaints I’ve lodged, as well as parliamentary correspondence and senate submissions etc.
Paula et Sergio, they’re hardly a national secret, dears. If you’d asked I would have sent you copies myself. I would have blogged them already, except Ron at the NSW Dept of Trade reckoned he was going to put our OLGR complaint online months ago and I’ve been waiting and waiting. If he doesn’t hurry up, I’ll post it to the cloud, with all the other documents you’ve requested, and link to them. Because if the cult’s upper rung parasites are going to pore over my complaints looking for something to defame me further about, then the public should have the opportunity to read them as well.
I’ve got nothing to hide, Paula. Perhaps we should do an FOI for the ACNC’s directive for Sergio profiting from the dissolution of the CoUM, and perhaps correct the fiction that the College of UM renewed its NSW fundraising authority while under investigation, when I have it from the horses mouth that they didn’t. But that’s a blog for another day.
In the meantime, Paula, unlike UM I have no problem with transparency. You can come and have rummage through my knickers drawer if you like. Bring Phoenix Global. I’ll invite some friends. We’ll watch…maybe buy a nice semillon, and some brie…
