Cult fictions – Caroline Raphael’s Esoteric registration & accreditation + assisted brainwashing
Down the page I wrote about the cult’s latest bogus legal threats. No irony they accused me of misleading advertising for posting Martin Gladman’s words about me verbatim. AND Caroline Raphael accused me of lying, using a carefully scissored adverse finding letter as Esoteric evidence.
It seems she was hungry for my attention.
It reminded me of this masterpiece of cult manipulation from ‘The Psychological Wellbeing Conference’ flop of 2013. The one that was ejected from Bond University when they found out it was run by an occult worshipping death cult that is always on the prowl for fresh meat.
I confess, I couldn’t sit through the whole video of ‘Understanding the Choices we make and why!’ and I don’t expect any of you to without the help of the fast forward button, but this has to be heard to be believed. It follows the UM cult indoctrination script – paraphrased as registered psychologist, Caroline Raphael takes the stage, says her life was shit before UM, blames her education and profession, but she’s never been more AMAZING since she became fully indoctrinated into narcissistic ‘self care’ and preciousness, and used her professional standing to share the anti-social ‘joy’, but not necessarily the profits. She gets Annette Baker up on stage to talk through an exercise on how to work out whether choices have positive or negative consequences. Yeah, I know, zzzzz. So she and Annette spend ten minutes workshopping on a whiteboard the consequences of making the life changing choice to – wait for it – no, not lie, not rort Medicare by charging Esoteric psychology to mental health plans, not take on people you socialize with as clients, not write complaints & affidavits in a professional capacity about people you’ve never met, not participate in mass grooming of vulnerable people, or the exaltation of a predator, or use undue influence, or make bullshit legal threats – no, they workshop the choice to eat chips.
Ten or so minutes? God knows, I couldn’t watch, of persuading an already eating disordered congregation to fixate on effing *chips*, while the fraudster supreme sits in the wings, counting the cash he’s raking from smashing and robbing families and having his pet health professionals talk targets into habit forming neurosis.
Notice how the two of them coach viewers into how to feel about an innocuous food that’s harmless to eat in a balanced diet. A former UM customer asked me if it’s possible to have a psychosomatic reaction to food, and you certainly can if you’ve been persuaded to.
Caroline Raphael. *Psychologist*.
While searching for that video, I came across Ms Raphael’s website and discovered she’s ‘convener of the Australian Psychological Societies [sic] (APS) interest group, Psychology and Complementary Medicine,’ where she pretends the Benhayon Esoteric healing fraud is ‘complementary medicine’ and tries to sell it to other psychs. One wonders if she tells them about Sergio’s imaginary child raping ‘entities‘.
And I have to share the part where she calls herself a ‘registered’ Esoteric practitioner ‘accredited’ by Benhayon’s accreditation scam, the Esoteric Practitioners Association.
This is getting tedious. Caroline’s associate Bride of Serge, exercise physiologist Danielle Pirera, also misleadingly described herself as registered at one point.
The terms ‘registered’ and ‘accredited’ health practitioner have specific definitions under the national law. Caroline might be a registered psychologist (watch THAT space), but no one is either registered or accredited under any ‘complementary medicine’ scam.
HEALTH PRACTITIONER REGULATION NATIONAL LAW (NSW) – SECT 5
In this Law-
“accreditation authority” means-
(a) an external accreditation entity; or
(b) an accreditation committee.
“accreditation committee” means a committee established by a National Board to exercise an accreditation function for the health profession for which the Board is established.
“accreditation standard” , for a health profession, means a standard used to assess whether a program of study, and the education provider that provides the program of study, provide persons who complete the program with the knowledge, skills and professional attributes necessary to practise the profession in Australia.
“accredited program of study” means a program of study accredited under section 48 by an accreditation authority…
“national registration and accreditation scheme” means the scheme-(a) referred to in the COAG Agreement; and(b) established by this Law…
“registered health practitioner” means an individual who-
(a) is registered under this Law to practise a health profession, other than as a student; or
(b) holds non-practising registration under this Law in a health profession…
“registration authority” means-
(a) a local registration authority; or
(b) an entity of a jurisdiction outside Australia that has responsibility for registering health practitioners in that jurisdiction…
“registration standard” means a registration standard developed by a National Board under section 38.
And no Serge and Natalie’s Esoteric Practitioner Association Pty Ltd, as enthusiastically sold by cult doctors Maxine Szramka and Eunice Minford, and the Mystic Dentist, Rachel Hall, is neither an authority nor recognized under the law. Registered practitioners are searchable on the AHPRA Register. AHPRA implements the National Accreditation & Registration Scheme. There are 14 registered health professions in Australia and Esoteric excuses for an unqualified grope aren’t any of them.
Nor are they ‘complementary’ to medicine or anything else. Wait until they’re hung out to dry in the Supreme court.
Failing to indicate that in advertising is deceptive and misleading to members of the public who don’t know better. Caroline Raphael.
Looking forward to the release of this documentary on the Buddhafield cult run by a South American born prize narcissist, Michel, (formerly Andreas), which began in California, moved around the US and is currently based in Hawaii. It was documented by a cult member who happened to be a film maker and photographer.
He created an environment of love and acceptance and would perform a euphoric physical act on them that he referred to as Shakti; members said it would shake them like an intense LSD trip. Of course, this man – who eventually changed his name to Andreas – wasn’t quite what he seemed…
A registered hypnotherapist, Andreas had forced younger male members – including straight ones – to have sex with him for years on end. He insisted that female members have abortions. He had members spend thousands of dollars on plastic surgery on themselves. The Telegraph
Underestimate these characters at your peril.
April 24 – Martin Gladman et al pseudolegal chest beating
It seems Sergio’s legal team has taken to writing me comedic unrequited love letters via other people’s email accounts. The first came through counsellor and life coach (lol!), Martin Gladman, of Melbourne. Or maybe his Mail account has an entity in it. Anyway, Martin must have kissed some butt to be appointed dogsbody on Natalie with Love (lol!) TV, pandering to its ‘millions of viewers’ (lol x 2), and as a presenter for the College of Universal Medicine sham charity pushing subscriptions for Glorious emasculations to blokes. I’m not sure if he’s aware Paula Fletcher has hijacked his email, or whether he volunteered it as part of his ‘expression project’ and a run at earning points from Sergio for a higher initiation:
I’m not sure if he was part of the project that spammed the ACCC with 150 complaints of something similar. They were unceremoniously dismissed at the first assessment hurdle. Anyway, his glowing testimonial is the bottom-most Tweet of this exchange.
Martin & the girls obviously see me as an overachiever.
No Esoteric wrongdoing found update II – registered psychologist, Caroline Raphael
Last month I mentioned Caroline Raphael had been disciplined by the Psychology Council, nearly two years before Marianna Masiorski was put on conditional registration over her irresponsible promotions of UM.
Paula must have commandeered Caroline Raphael’s email account in another display of high charged Esoteric passion a few days before the Gladman pseudolegal tantrum:
To which I responded:
Oh my goodness, Caroline, you forgot to send the rest of the letter, tsk tsk. How Esoteric of you. This bit:
The cordialities continued for a while, where I asked how many people she attends the Church of Serge with are also her clients – a serious breach of psychologists’ code of conduct. Psychologists are not permitted to socialize with clients at all. Two years must elapse after any treatment before they are allowed to do so without facing disciplinary action. I also asked whether she’d declared income she earned touring Esoteric Pyschology to the UK to the tax office. But no – she’s the model of Esoteric integrity:
Dear Ms Rockett
My professionalism and integrity is not under question here. The point is you have lied and made false statements about me…Use whatever words you like as a distraction but the evidence is plain and clear, no decision can be published if it does not exist. I have NOT and never have been put on conditional registration, this has not been written anywhere as it has never occurred. In truth, Caroline Raphael
‘In truth’, lol. From here on remind me to address all replies to ‘Ladies & Serge’. Their overwrought devotionals and uniform pseudo-legalese reek of the erotic frustrations of the UM *Facts* committee.
Dearest Caroline,Thanks for your update on your Esoteric integrity and lovely-ness.I’ll be forwarding your threats to the psychology council as evidence you lack insight into the disciplinary counselling you were ordered to undertake “when there are issues of concern to the Council which may constitute a departure from acceptable standards of practice or where the Council needs to assure itself that a psychologist is aware of the acceptable standards of practice and conduct.”
Shall I spell it out? Seeing the gentle breath meditation has calcified your synapses? Given the Psychology Council of NSW has jurisdiction over your registration and you were ordered to undergo counselling, I would call that a condition of your registration.Put it this way, if you stamped your little foot and refused, they would have escalated the disciplinaries. Yes? And if you kept refusing they would have deregistered. Yah?
Do as you wish Esther, put in as many vexatious complaints as you like. You only further support my case.
Your case of what Caroline, my love? Delusion?In your last email you wrote, ‘My professionalism and integrity is not under question here.‘
Um, lol, it is. You’ve breached the law, you continue to do it and you deny the Psychology Council REQUIRED you to undergo counselling, my dear.
‘The point is you have lied and made false statements about me.‘
UM should get Brendan Mooney to set that music. 😀
April 17 – Two out of three Glorious marriages fail – Universal Medicine’s gaping relationship cracks
Remember this from Sergio and his butt kissing Mystic dentist in the Courier Mail?
Mr Benhayon told The Courier-Mail it was absurd to suggest Universal Medicine was a cult and his students were not compelled to do anything. He said the reported 42 marriage breakdowns “if accurate, is terribly disappointing” but Universal Medicine was not to blame.
“I’m not causing the divide, the divide is being caused by the situation (which) as far as I know, factually, has always been there,” he said.
Dr [Rachel] Hall [of Evolve Holistic dentistry Kenmore] said there were “no grounds for saying it’s a cult” and that media scrutiny of Mr Benhayon “feels like a witchhunt”. She knew of “a few” couples who split after joining the group as lifestyle changes were “very confronting” for some partners.
“But were there cracks in the relationship beforehand?” Dr Hall said.
Now Natalie and Michael Benhayon have joined the casualties, leading one to surmise that the rate of divorce in the Benhayon family is not only double that of the general population – which Serge refers to lovingly as the ‘Astral Cult‘, but may exceed the dismally high stats within the UM community. Of six marriages (counting Serge x 2), four have failed. Of four Benhayon kiddies, 3 couplings have bit the dust so far.
Simone managed a couple of years with David Nicholson before he keyed her Alpha Romeo. That particular loveless male has moved on to the next available bride.
Emmalee and Michael Benhayon made it through three or four years by my calculations. A noble effort, and they are soldiering on with new partners from among the atrophying dating pool. Emmalee, as we know, is the daughter of Serge’s solicitor, Paula Fletcher, of Universal Law and moved in with the Benhayons when she was fifteen or so. Which raises some hilarious questions for Paula as a family law solicitor. How will she make sure Emmalee gets her share of the property settlement? It all gets pretty murky when your daughter’s Dad in law is her some time employer, your client and when you’ve bought real estate property from him as well – when you weren’t burning books at the messiah’s behest, that is. I guess that’s why the Law Society recommends its members avoid conflicts of interest.
But even I couldn’t predict the poor performance of Natalie Benhayon’s marriage to Conor Turley. They got themselves to a civil ceremony around September last year, reportedly, but didn’t make it to the Esoteric-knees-up in Frome in November. Rumour has it poor old Conor got lost between the six mirrors in the boudoir of Princess Nata-lie and became invisible.
As predicted. Poor bastard. But in the first weeks??
The inevitable failures of these pairings, of course, had nothing to do with the Esoteric oppressions of the Way of the Livingness®. Nothing to do with having to live with or in the pockets of one’s in laws – in particular a stunted little autocrat called Serge and his constant hounding about ‘respect’ and not being in the ‘right energy’ in literally everything his earners do, from the way they walk, make sideways glances or nibble their raw nuts. Nothing to do with eating chicken being fine and full of the light of the soul one day and not ‘in truth’ the next, or having your music skills constantly picked on by an untrained, philistine schmuck in spite of all those 4 am Glorious Music rehearsal starts.
No one ever gets it right.
Nothing to do either with being conditioned from a young age that emotions are the cause of all disease and empathy is ‘poisonous’ and ‘pandering’. Nothing to do with smacking the pack energy out of boys, burning photographs of the kids’ adolescent friends or making them stare for hours at a wall.
No. Apparently the marriages go tits up because it’s the ‘new era of responsibility’.
Serge Says So.
And of course, no one, upon no one, ever measures up.
No wrong doing found update – Alison Greig in damage control
Following up from last month’s ‘no wrongdoing found‘ gossip, in February, Alison Greig was snarking @ me on Twitter, so I took the opportunity to quiz her on what had happened to the College of Universal Medicine’s DGR (deductible gift recipient status).
@AlisonGreig36 You’re director of College of Universal Medicine charity? Correct? Why did the tax office cancel it’s DGR status?
— Esther Rockett (@EstherRockett) February 12, 2016
An eery silence persisted until March when I blogged a link to the Australian Business Register page showing the DGR was cancelled in October last year, and asked her again about her recent public insistence our complaints had all resulted in ‘no wrongdoing found’. Alison is a director with Natalie Benhayon, Brisbane barrister Charles Wilson et al, and with UM Pty Ltd company director and Serge’s pet lawyer, Serryn O’Regan as Chairman. I doubt Alison was told the charity was under investigation when she was blessed with the job.
The response was loving, ‘truth-full’ and very Esoteric.
— Alison Greig (@AlisonGreig36) March 15, 2016
Alison and associates had hopped into damage control and edited a page on the College website to claim the charity had surrendered the DGR voluntarily. But a glance at the webcache showed they didn’t update the College site until I blogged it. Over five months after it was published on the ABR. On March 2nd it still hadn’t been announced on the College site.
— Esther Rockett (@EstherRockett) March 15, 2016
The excuses they gave for giving up the DGR are a pathetically gigglesome admission that the College’s educational purpose is and always was bullshit. They omit the bit about sham charities being the target of new regulations. All along we’ve known the College is a fundraising front to improve a business premises owned by Sergio, doubling as a promotional front for his lunatic anti-social teachings. I’ll cover the new rules more in the next charity update.
But the point I’d like to make is for all her effort churning out Esoteric *facts* to trash complainants and journalists, Alison Greig is just another of Serge Benhayon’s human shields, chosen for her eagerness to please ‘The One’, her righteously enthusiastic bitchiness in policing the Eso-community, and her boundless passion for overblowing farcical propaganda smokescreens. Serryn O’Regan isn’t stupid enough to put her name to social media bile, and Serge and Serryn have so little respect for Alison they made her director of a doomed and dodgy charity and didn’t bother to tell her when it copped a major regulatory hit. Just like Alison had no idea of the content of Benhayon’s defamation claim until I published it, reckoned I was late in filing the defence because I didn’t have one, and continues to represent the student body in mouthing off even though she hasn’t clapped eyes on it.
I was in court when Serge told a judge the formation of the charity was a call from the student body, run by and for the students. Alison was there. Funny how I have notes from 2010 documenting him telling them to make the call. Alison by now should be aware she’s as disposable as the rest of Serge’s hierarchy. He’ll happily throw her under a bus. If she tries to say she was aware of the DGR cancellation, and that Serryn and Serge really do keep her in the know, the student body who made all those donations, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth, ought be asking why they weren’t told.
No rest for the wicked and new frontiers of exposure
Almost a year ago I wrote a post about moving on to other projects. I’d published as much exposure of the Universal Medicine scam as I could, done my best to bring it to account via complaints, notifications and submissions and didn’t want to be identified with a cult load of unimaginative dullards any longer. I’d had enough. I followed up with a few items, but I’d quit investigating. I had better things to do.
Serge Benhayon, his cheer squad of voracious brides, and his enamoured legal team couldn’t live without me, though. After all, in the absence of any social conscience someone’s got to make up for it. UM couldn’t maintain their unified delusion without a common target for their projected inner conflicts. None of them have the insight or wherewithal to confront those alone…
So they served me with an overblown SLAPP claim, knowing I’d rise to the challenge and help them struggle through their resistance to their torturous self-realizations.
I now have them to thank for a new level of support from all over the world. It brought in a heap of support from an international network of anti cult activists I’m now a part of. It brought contact from ex UMers and loved ones of cult members I’d never heard from before. It made me get off my arse and ask for more help, and get it – in spades, and I’ve learned a heap about the law and legal process, made a heap of new friends, and strengthened bonds with old ones. I even learned new skills in editing audio and video to make Sergio’s loony ravings available on YouTube.
Best of all, it’s given all of us a unique opportunity to put the Benhayon sleaze and bullshit before the Supreme Court. UM always did struggle with transparency and accountability. The SLAPP, of course, is an anguished cry for help.
They can thank me for focusing on this year’s grubby Girl to WomanFestival, their renewed exploitations of juveniles and new forays into schools. Soon I’ll be raking over the latest in UM’s charity rorts and some special analysis of Caroline Raphael’s idea of ‘no wrongdoing found’.
So much to write about, so little time, but how else to help the love-lies deal with their ambivalent yearnings for truth.
