The Universal Medicine site is advertising this weekend’s couples workshop as ‘available to all’, probably because so few couples have survived cult leader Serge Benhayon’s relationship mangling teachings. A past attendee tells us what transpired at the workshop he attended and the conflict Serge’s sleazy presentation triggered between him and his partner.
The ‘Couples Workshop’ is designed to incorporate the esoteric way of relationship, which is the establishment of harmony via the energetic mediums of expression and communication.
Whilst the workshop is key for those ‘in relationships’, the word relationship applies to all human interactions. Thus, it is open to all who interact with human beings in daily life. This means it is open to all…
Because we are always in relationship, it is wise or at the very least it makes common sense to know how to establish harmonious interactions and interrelations with all those we share life with and or those we meet. In contrast, and if the key factor is not harmony and love, we can make the inescapable activity of relationship one of awkwardness or aggression, one-sided, domineering, bullying and or controlling. The latter evolves no one. Universal Medicine Site
Yah, we’ve all felt the ‘love’ of harmonious Esoteric interactions. I felt the love when the cult tried to shut down my blogs with bogus copyright and trademark infringement claims, or when the mystic dentist tried to have me charged with stalking for politely asking her to stop promoting a sexual predator. For once, though, the cult is right in that bullying evolves no one, proven by the fact UM followers’ brains continue to atrophy.
Seeing the cult is struggling to fill the seats at their sordid presentations, they’ve invited their growing number of single followers to the couples workshop at a special price of $75 while Esoteric couples pay $120 for two.
Note — if you are single or attend without your partner, you will be paired for the day with another single person.
Maybe the matchmaking of Esoteric eunuchs accounts for the extra fifteen bucks.
Benhayon’s teachings that have been the death knell for so many previously sound relationships were explored in Esoteric relationships – subscription only and leave your emotions at the door. Basically, as many of our readers have found, it’s impossible to relate to a partner who is obsessed with Serge and Universal Medicine and becomes uncommunicative, emotionally shut down, obstinately passive aggressive and insists the continuation of the relationship is conditional on both partners paying up to the Livingness death drive and bowing to Serge.
Anyone who joins Serge’s religion accepts sexist stereotyping, unsound health advice, inappropriate touching, the promotion of death and reincarnation over health, life and living, and a high financial expenditure for the privilege. They can then expect to have zero privacy, to routinely have their personal boundaries transgressed and exhibit their sex lives, their gynaecological functions and their histories of trauma and abuse publicly on the ‘truth’ blogs, and to call all of that ‘healing’ and self-loving choices.
Investors are also inclined to wonder why so many partners rebel.
The Couples Workshop ordeal
One of our correspondents attended the relationship workshop at Lennox Head two years ago with his then partner. She, like many of Brides of Serge, had been increasingly disinterested in intimacy since subscribing to Universal Medicine’s squalid Livingness, and as we know, Serge describes men as sex crazed animals while saying women don’t like sex and only do it to please men.
To our correspondent’s surprise, Serge began talking about sex at the workshop and particularly how women could seduce their partners.
He told a long story about how a woman can buy the best dress to excite her partner. The story went on and on which I knew would lead to the woman being her birthday suit. The members were engrossed. The metaphor was supposed to be that by being “themselves” unashamedly they would be the most attractive. No need to dress up.
However, Serge’s description of naked and oiled cult women grew increasingly salacious, and our friend was uncomfortable, particularly since followers had brought their adolescent daughters to the presentation.
He detailed them asking their partners to come and see them when they put their “dress” on and then emerging naked and saying “tah dah!! here I am!” He then said this would result in the biggest, hardest erections in their men.
The cult members laughed but he didn’t find it funny. After the workshop he remarked to his partner that he thought the content was inappropriate. He thought she would be embarrassed as he was and agree, but she dismissed his concerns, and said Serge ‘knew what he was doing’.
Several days later our correspondent says his partner followed Serge’s instructions to the letter and called him into the bedroom whereupon she emerged from the bathroom naked and oiled and said ‘tah dah!’. This disturbed our friend because this was the first time his partner had been interested in sex in months. He was unhappy that first his partner developed a fixation with Serge, and then was sexually manipulated, first to reject her partner, and then to attempt to seduce him seemingly at Serge’s command.
Our friend later contacted other husbands and partners of the Brides of Serge and all of them said they’d experienced the same thing – exactly, down to the last detail.
For our friend and a number of other partners of followers, Serge’s sexual manipulation of his partner, and his uncomfortable experience at the couples workshop were just two of the nails Universal Medicine drove into the coffin of his relationship.
Most of our readers know there are only three possible outcomes from Universal Medicine’s noxious relationship teachings:
- Partners overcome their aversion to the cult’s intrusions and surrender completely to the all consuming Livingness.
- Relationships continue but with an underlying conflict keeping the situation in a state of tension and discord.
- Relationships end and the cult member partner hires Universal Law solicitors Mullumbimby, Lismore and Tweed Heads to take out an AVO against their partner that is usually baseless, which helps them monopolize child custody and secure a property settlement which will find its way into Universal Medicine’s coffers.
Enjoy this couples weekend.
