This Sunday, Universal Medicine will celebrate fundraising for the College of Universal Medicine with the first ever ‘Heavenly Picnic’. For the Benhayon clan it’s a routine call for cash, done regularly at every UM event since long before the College was registered as a charity. Student notes reveal how the Benhayons have collected funds to establish Universal Medicine’s profitable clinics and now the College, set up for ‘educational purposes’. Prior to the College’s registration as a charity, cult leader, Serge Benhayon, stipulated donations were made anonymously and without conditions, but now the tax exempt status saves him the trouble of hiding the funds.
The College of Universal Medicine is a charitable institution recognised by the Australian Tax Office (ATO). The Charity has set up a School Building Fund account called the Fiery Building Fund which has been endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient by the ATO. Fiery Building Fund website
We are now also a legal charity called “The College Of Universal Medicine” and any money that is donated is tax deductable. Serge read out a letter that he wrote to the tax department – go to the EDG section of the website to read this letter. He held nothing back in this letter yet it was passed.
In the middle of reading out the letter Serge broke down in tears. He could not stop crying so Natalie had to finish the letter. He was crying because the Hierarchy were in the room and it was so amazing to feel them. It was a very profound moment. Esoteric Development Group notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, December 17, 2011, pp.1-2.
Official objects and actions
The objects of the College are the usual Benhayon cult balderdash.
In other words, the College is business as usual for the Universal Medicine pyramid scheme of abuse, but without the burden of paying tax. Our year long research into UM’s education, training and practices in Esoteric philosophy and medicine indicates CUM’s educational objectives include anti-health practices promoting death, molestation of sexual abuse victims taught as healing, sexist indoctrination combined with breast massage, pseudoscience, evolution denial and gender divisiveness taught as ‘Ageless Wisdom‘, narcissism, paranoia and emotional neutering taught as personal development and parenting advice, as well as disordered eating, personal boundary transgressions and privacy invasions in the name of therapy. Any of the cult’s abuses omitted from that list can be found on Our Mission page.
Within its constitution, the authorized actions of the College include the acquisition of real estate property, and the establishment of a building fund, as well as:
(i) create or operate libraries used for the purposes of advancing the objects of the College;
Considering Benhayon’s condemnation of all other competing literature, and Universal Medicine’s tradition of book burnings, the library in its entirety will consist of six volumes of the Book of Serge.
(ii) cooperate with any other institution, association or body having objects similar to the objects of the College;
Except that all non Esoteric institutions are regarded with hostility, as proponents of the Astral cult.
(v) provide student accommodation and other facilities incidental to advancing the objects of the College;
Seeing UM’s objects are to present their ideal of ‘true health, harmony and a one-unified care, benefit and duty to all’ which entails the denigration of life and the human body and the promotion of death, and that the most dangerous cults tend to establish compounds to isolate followers from the greater community, that is one action to be viewed with vigilance.
More information on the College is available from the Australian Charity and Not For Profit Commission website. The current directors are Natalie Benhayon, business partner to Serge and Miranda Benhayon and amateur internet censor, Desiree Delaloye, and Brisbane barrister, Charles Wilson. Melbourne solicitor and Esoteric Breast Massager, Serryn O’Regan is Chairperson.
Serge Benhayon was a director of the College until August last year (post adverse publicity), but replaced himself with zero credentials daughter Natalie.
Addendum: Serge Benhayon resigned as director but it was reported he’d appointed himself Chairman in perpetuity (forever), apparently so no one can ‘bastardize the work’ by the Courier Mail last year. We’re seeking historical documentation to track slippery Sergio’s changing status.
Previous fundraising – soliciting anonymous donations
Prior to tax exempt charity status, Universal Medicine financed the plush Brisbane clinic with student donations. Let’s face it, flogging worthless products and services based on the lunatic ravings of an ex bankrupt toilet enlightenee are hardly going to found a financial empire. It makes better business sense to perform a cult conversion on the susceptible and then continuously bleed them for free money.
The Brisbane Clinic has been purchased but with a loan of $2million to pay off requires ongoing donations for another 2-3 years.
Donations of any size can be made depending on whether you can afford it.
Don’t donate because you feel you have to, everybody else is, etc etc.
Feel if you wish to support the growth of the work in this way and do it anonymously EDG notes taken by Michael Dixon, EDG 21 August 2010, p. 3
Anonymous donations don’t require a receipt, which is conducive to avoiding tax.
There has been a new UniMed building and 6 acre grounds bought in Goonellabah (2.3 million). Serge showed us some pictures of the grounds – it is very very beautiful. UniMed needs anonomous (sic) gifts of investment for this new property to get up and running. EDG notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, September 18, 2011, p.4.
The purchase is not for Serge
In Australia Serge has personally purchased (around $2.5mil) a huge building, a cold storage facility on 6 acres and is holding it until such a time there is the call for the Australian charity to purchase it from him to develop a centre in Australia. If this does not happen over the next few years then serge will sell it. The call must come from the students. EDG notes taken by Michael Dixon, 18 February 2012 p.4.
In Australia Serge bought a property for the student body so that he could secure it. It is not for him. The student body will have to buy back this property from Serge. (If of course they want their own place). If they do not want it then Serge will sell it. It is not for him.
The property Serge bought is beautiful. It is huge and we will never outgrow it. It is worth investing it. The Code of Ethics to run such an organization will be even higher than the Code of Ethics we now have for the EPA. Serge also spoke about the nursing homes we will have to cater for all of us who are getting older and who will be looking for a place to live and die in our old age. EDG notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, February 18, 2012, p.5.
Note that students make donations on top of their copious consumption of UM’s money for nothing products and courses.
While student notes state the property isn’t for Serge, they also say the property will serve Benhayon’s business interests.
OUR NEW CENTRE
Presently a cold storage facility.
Purchase for $2.3Mi|
Not far from the existing clinic in Goonellabah.
6 Acres, has existing buildings -1700m2 the size of 3 of the Iennox head stadiums which we currently hire. (Its huge)
All EDG’s, courses, lectures as well as performances by Michael and Chris James will be held here.
Only the retreats will be at Iennox as there is no accommodation at present.
This is Unimed claiming it.
We now need donations to help reduce the debt carried to purchase the property so it can be up and running as soon as possible.
Only donate if you feel to and can afford to.
lf you would like to donate contact Serge directly. EDG notes taken by Michael Dixon, May 23, 2011. (Date may be incorrect. Probably April 23, 2011)
There is 1700 square metres of building – and only 5 minutes away from the Clinic. [Goonellabah NSW] The plan is to have 14-18 offices, and will ultimately be offering Home Hospice, an extended Clinic, and ultimately a College. In time it will be used for all our Retreats etc. The street no. is 37.
Serge presented that assistance is needed financially to get the ball rolling – and asked that we contribute in some way if we can and feel impulsed to do so, as we have done for the U.M. Brisbane Clinic. If we find that we are in a position to assist, the energy of donation will reward the kidneys. He mentioned that there will be free Retreats for cancer patients and for those experiencing illness or disease.
The greatest form of healing is not a cure, but a life not to reproduce it. EDG notes, anonymous note taker, (believed to be Kathleen Baldwin) April 23, 2011.
Free retreats for cancer patients, home hospice, nursing homes…death is a healing. The cult doctors can assure the patients that death isn’t the end but a reuniting with God. Or Sirius. That’s Dr Jane Barker in the photo below in a red parka, black slacks and white shoes. Universal Law solicitors are on hand to handle wills and bequests. That’s Paula not on the payroll Fletcher in the photo below, to the right of the bald investor, behind his shoulder.
Education is loveless
One wonders how the ATO passed Benhayon’s college of bullshit and its ‘educational purposes’, unless of course the cult lied by omission in its applications. We can’t imagine they submitted the workshop manuals featuring inappropriate touching and amateur sexual abuse therapy, stating, for example, that the energy of rape can remain in one’s chakras for thousands of years and can only be cleared by an Esoteric practitioner trained by the bogan messiah.
It’s doubtful Sergio disclosed to the ATO that his teachings are the One Unified Truth® to the exclusion of all other forms of knowledge, or his documented damnation of ideals, beliefs, intellect, emotions, compassion, altruism and charity.
In addition, cult psychologist, Brendan Mooney’s favourite cult expert, Margaret Thaler Singer described the difference between education and thought reform indoctrination that occurs in cults. Education encourages logical thinking and questioning, is based on numerous bodies of knowledge and a two way communication between teacher and pupil, whereas thought reform and indoctrination are performed dictatorially, using deception and other unethical mind control practices, and questioning is not permitted. (Singer, 2003, p.58-9)
The latest cash drive
Some changes have been made to the Fiery Building Fund site since we last took screenshots. The photo above featuring Sergio running a donation drive tour of the College site, and featuring Dr Jane Barker, Paula Fletcher, financial advisor Christoph Schnell and cult psychologist (LOL) Caroline Raphael in white boots along with Benhayon’s business partner, College Director, Desiree Delaloye, has been removed.
The religious jargon has been removed from the ad for the ‘Heavenly Picnic’ and ‘About this website’.
According to the donations graph, the revenue has increased by almost AUD$400,000 in less than 2 months. It’s currently sitting at $548,000.
In the meantime, Benhayon is attempting to gain more tax exemption by claiming his counterfeit Ancient Wisdom (circa 1999) is the basis for a religion he calls the Livingness, but we might call the Church of $erge.
The Australian Charity and Not for Profit Commission is required to report to federal parliament annually, so please write to your local member of parliament and ask how an abusive, secretive, anti-education and anti-social group such as Universal Medicine is able to operate at a cost to tax payers – burdening health and social services, legal aid and the family court – without paying tax. CC your email to Senator Nick Xenophon and the Federal Minister for Social Services, Kevin Andrews. (Email addresses on the Prohibiting Serge Benhayon post.)
And for those attending the Hurry to Heaven fundraising, death and molestation celebratory picnic – don’t drink the Kool Aid.
