Relaunch: Unpacking Universal Medicine video seriesPosted: February 6, 2018
The bogus copyright kerfuffle is out of the way and the videos are back online…
The series gives an insight into the workings of the Goonellabah based commercial occult religious conglomerate. Watch my blogs and social media for the release of the next episodes.
The Unpacking Universal Medicine video series is now on a YouTube playlist. More episodes are coming soon.
Early 2016 I published audio recordings of some of UM’s controversial teachings on YouTube. The audio taught us a lot about Universal Medicine beliefs, but as the saying goes, a picture paints a thousand words. Video paints more. Not much of what we see is pretty.
A preview of the documentary series. Unpacking Universal Medicine and the Way of the Livingness ventures deep into the workings of UM showing the influences at work in the controversial organization and how the group relates to outsiders and each other.
Episode 1 – Mystifying sex – shows some of the confusing occult teachings propagated by the company intent on providing ‘role models’ and sexual education for kids. Universal Medicine is behind the Girl to Woman Festival, Teachers are Gold and other initiatives it persistently attempts to introduce to schools and community organizations.
RELAUNCH 6 February 2018:
Last month in a typical fit of panic censorship UM issued bogus copyright infringement takedown notices to YouTube. These first episodes in the series were removed from viewing within 36 hours of their launch. UM have form for this. As in 2013, I issued counter notices agreeing to accept service of any legal claims, UM did not act on their complaints – they had no legal basis to do so -and the content was restored.
Look out for Episode 2 on how Universal Medicine’s ‘healing’ beliefs and practices have an uneasy relationship with health.
Episode 1 – Mystifying sex
We’ve known for a long time that UM followers have confused ideas about sex. Episode 1 helps us understand where those ideas come from. It also validates our concerns about Universal Medicine, Esoteric Women’s Health and their promoters’ involvement in initiatives for children.
Esoteric Women’s Health’s disturbing Girl to Woman Festival was held again in Lennox Head on the 21 January, and is planned for Melbourne in April. The festival organizers are not up front about its UM backing. This year UM increased its deceptive and misleading public promotions of the event and annoyed more parents than ever. Feel free to show this video and any in the series to anyone thinking of taking kids to those events.
A health warning
Loved ones of people involved in UM, particularly those with children caught up in it have been appalled by what they’ve seen in the videos.
It may be upsetting to some of you.
It’s good for others to know they’re not alone in their misgivings so please feel free to comment. I’m pretty busy with legal stuff but you can always contact me if you’re having a hard time. I think it’s time we set something up so that you can speak with others who understand what it’s like to deal with UM in your life.
We have readers who are former UM followers and many readers with loved ones involved, so I’d like commenters to remember that when they comment. The majority of UM community members are decent and well intentioned people. Unfortunately they’re ensnared in a large scale and elaborate deception.
The films prove that UM deserves a lot more criticism than it’s had. One of the most confronting things about this mess is that many of UM’s well intentioned members are participating in the organization’s deceptive, exploitative and otherwise lousy conduct. It’s heartbreaking for all involved. It causes massive problems. Please be sensitive that many readers feel a mixture of emotions about this stuff, including grief. It doesn’t help to rub their noses in it. Criticism of UM is deserved but we don’t want to alienate anyone whose been done over or deter readers from commenting either.
Using and sharing
Feel free to share the videos. They are useful for notifying community organizations, schools or other institutions about UM and its promoters.
I daresay a number of you will be able to use this material in dealing with the Family Court. The episodes include some very persuasive material for keeping kids away from this group. Contact me for assistance.
Tips for commenters
It’s helpful to me and other commenters if you identify time signatures within the videos if you want to comment on any particular statement or segment. You’ll see there’s a lot to comment on.
Comments are moderated for legal reasons. Unfortunately what reasonable people call ‘the bleeding obvious’, UM and its invested lawyers call ‘defamation’. The Australian legal system is such that taking a defence of truth to trial takes years, enormous costs, and otherwise the moving of mountains.
Team UM is now also jumping up and down about comments they say could ‘prejudice’ a jury, and threatening to charge commenters who make remarks about the plaintiff’s published comments with contempt of court. Never mind that UM have been publishing genuinely prejudicial and false allegations about the defendant that they can’t prove…
If some of your descriptions get modified, you know why.
