Charging for charity – the tax exempt College of Universal Medicine’s first annual evasion statement

FieryBuildingFund1

Until recently, charities in Australia could raise and spend money without accounting to anyone. This year, the newly formed Australian Not for Profit and Charity Commission required them to submit an Annual Information Statement. The College of Universal Medicine surpassed itself by also forwarding its audited accounts. The information tells us the College raised almost half a million dollars, spent nothing, and their charitable activities were merely marketing events for UM’s business. Typical of anything UniMed, their attempt at transparency raises more questions than it answers, including why the charity is talking about buying a school building, when the students have already paid for one.

The Sound Foundation charitable trust’s AMAZING generosity – recruitment drives targeting health workers

chaiselongueIn October 2013, Universal Medicine’s UK charity, the Sound Foundation, in Frome, Somerset was issued an action plan by the UK Charity Commission over issues of public benefit and trustee conflicts of interest. In other words, the cult was busted running a tax exempt sham and given a deadline to start acting like a legitimate charity – by spending money in ways that benefit the public rather than the Benhayon family of bullshitters and an assortment of hangers on. Given that the charity’s income in the year ending September 2012 was £1.2M and the charitable spending that year amounted to a piddling £74K, we were hoping for big things before the deadline of May 1. But nuh. The maternity unit at Frome Community Hospital were given a few chairs…For the staff. And we know why the cult likes to butter up medical staff.

The College of Universal Medicine – a self serving charity – guest post by the Lord of Form

Wikipedia says ‘Charitable giving is the act of giving money, goods or time to the unfortunate.’ According to our favourite anti-cult guerrilla, the Lord of Form, Sergio Reverso Benhayon ‘considers the act of charity in how he receives it, not how he gives it.’ On Planet Serge, charity is all about benefit to Serge. He says as much in the College’s publicity, and sadly, his followers will continue to give. And give.

The Universal Medicine cult building fund – the voice from heaven calls for more cash!

Hit-em-againEsoteric Breast Massager and editor of cult leader Serge Benhayon’s self published tomes, Gabriel Conrad, had a profound and soul-full revelation at the 2012 UK Livingness retreat: multi millionaire Serge doesn’t have enough cash!! In the following fiery appeal to the faithful for evermore funds, Conrad gushes over Serge’s amazing GENEROSITY in allowing his students to pay for renovation of his property. She then plugs the spiritual benefits of donating to the guru’s tax exempt commercial scam with the fiction that students will ‘own our own building’ and that doing so is in defiance of the evil, conspiring, Astral Cult.

Whatever. One wonders if she’s emailed the faithful to tell them the Astral Cult, in the form of the UK Charity Commission, has the Sound Foundation under the microscope, and Serge’s UK church is at risk of losing the lot.

The tax exempt College of Universal Medicine – a hostile education

Eso-dunce

Forget Universal Medicine’s money for nothing products and services, for years a major source of the multi-million dollar cult’s income has been donations. In 2011, cult leader, Serge Benhayon was moved to tears by his success at conning the Australian Tax Office into granting the College of Universal Medicine tax exempt charity status. However, we think it unlikely Benhayon informed the ATO of his enmity to education, altruism and charity as evidenced throughout his writings and rantings. Moreover, notes supplied by intellectually challenged Esoteric students reveal the quality of education we can expect from his sham college.

Money HEALS! LOL!

Nothing occurs by accident on Planet Serge. It’s all KARMA. So when cult leader Serge Benhayon’s ex wife, book keeper and not so secret keeper, Deborah Benhayon, delivers a presentation on how the Esoteric use of money is a form of HEALING, you can expect it will be followed closely by the cashed up guru himself appealing for funds.

Not on the payroll – an Esoteric mystery

unicorns-and-fairies-mystical-unicorn-art-gallery-pegasus-desktop-221876In February this year, Esoteric student and cult lawyer, Paula Fletcher of Universal Law solicitors, Mullumbimby, outed herself as a blog troll on the Universal Medicine Accountability site. The self-loving lawyer, thinking she’d signed in anonymously to defend one of the cult’s bent surgeons, answered Venus’s enquiry about how much money she’d made out of Universal Medicine cult damage with the famous line, ‘not on anyone’s payroll actually’. A couple of weeks ago we received a copyright infringement notice for using scanned images of Serge’s healing symbols sent to WordPress from, quelle surprise, Universal Law’s Paula Fletcher. In the following exploration of Esoteric my$tici$m we look at the supernatural sources of the cult’s wealth, and the enigmatic question of who is on the payroll on Planet $erge and who isn’t?  And why not?
