Former Sydney tennis coach turned self-styled spiritual healer Serge Benhayon has suffered a spectacular loss in his Supreme Court defamation case against a former client, after a four-person jury found it was true to say he led a “socially harmful cult”, “intentionally indecently touched” clients and made “bogus healing claims”…
Ms Rockett’s solicitor, Stewart O’Connell of O’Brien Solicitors, said the verdict was a “victory against a Goliath organisation by a woman who refused to be bullied” and was a “vindication of Ms Rockett”. Sydney Morning Herald, 15 October 2018

I’ve also published an article on how to use the court’s orders to protect your community.
January 10 saw the launch of my YouTube documentary series, Unpacking Universal Medicine & The Way of the Livingness. I gave a critical analysis of Universal Medicine using publicly available video footage, texts and images. It set Goonellabah’s Esoteric empire ascramble and Unimed had its minions fire off bogus DMCA copyright complaints faster than they could spill their pea soup. YouTube removed the Intro episode and Episode 1 that I’d published. I lodged a counter notice, waited the required period, UM did not initiate legal proceedings and YouTube restored them.
UPDATE MARCH 1: The Co-Creative have made the same complaints, under penalty of perjury, about episodes 2-4. Episode 2 contrasts UM’s health claims with reports of health problems in the UM community. Episode 3 is about UM’s ‘True Sexy’ mixed messages in marketing its Esoteric Womens Health products. Episode 4 is about the impact of UM’s supernatural beliefs on relationships.
It’s that time of year again! The time when human beings get together to celebrate a year of doing our best through thick and thin, and to show gratitude for what and who we have. It’s also the time of year when UM’s Esoterics get together to not celebrate Christmas – when they go out of their way trying to make those who have to put up with them as miserable they are. So let’s raise our cups to not going down without a fight, duckies! Lets wind up the year with some more of the gobsmackers we love to share, with prana and Astral debauchery! And lets cast our thoughts to a blockbuster 2018 – to loading the cannons and striding to the breach my friends.

Multi-millionaire and predatory charlatan, Serge Benhayon, is SLAPP suing me for defamation for blogging concerns about his conduct with women and children. Knowing I don’t have the funds to defend the case, he’s using a defamation claim as censorship – to stop me from blowing the whistle on his secret culture of exploitation, rorting, bullying and abuse.

This week Dr Rachel Hall of Evolve Dental Healing Kenmore tried to have me arrested again for Esoteric thought crimes. This time for replying to her tweets.
Universal Medicine continues its campaign of internet censorship, continuing to pay now infamous Gold Coast private investigation agency Phoenix Global to make false complaints of defamation, copyright infringement and now trademark infringement in an attempt to wipe critical content off the net. Except WordPress isn’t wearing it, and Serge’s pet lawyer, Paula Fletcher had tried it before.
UM cult members have studiously avoided answering our questions about their abusive practices, and for good reason. In a recent phone call, one of them made disturbing admissions about the cult’s activities involving children, as well as Benhayon’s teachings that failure to adhere to the Way of the Livingness will result in children being raped by supernatural ‘entities’. An extract from the now defunct, password protected ‘Debasing Evil’ site reveals more defensiveness about our concerns on risks to children – a litany of lousy excuses the cult doesn’t dare make public.
No matter how much they accuse me of cyber-bullying, our concerns and questions are not going away.
