Commercial occult religion Universal Medicine is behind the Girl to Woman Festival, but don’t dare inform anyone. The organizers will trash you online and encourage people to report you to police. That’s what UM have done in the lead up to the event in Tenterfield NSW on 27 August 2017 – in response to legitimate concerns about the welfare of kids.
Universal Medicine’s marketing front, Esoteric Women’s Health has shopped the Girl to Woman Festival since 2015 as a ‘community event’ for advancing ‘the health and wellbeing of girls and women.’
It’s not. It’s a commercial event established to advance Unimed’s interests. It also omits critical information from its publicity.
Since late 2014 I’ve made notifications about the event, including to Education Departments and schools. The public, and most particularly parents and teachers, have a right to know who is love-bombing their children, and attempting to use publicly funded resources of schools and community groups to further their interests.
Reactive as always, rather than dealing with the issues of concern, on 6 August the organizers posted this announcement on Facebook.
**OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING TARGETING & HARASSMENT OF THE FESTIVAL & COMMUNITY MEMBERS**
Dear Tenterfield Community,
The Girl to Woman Team is delighted and honoured to be collaborating with many locals to design the upcoming August Festival. This event will bring together people, families, services, organisations and the like in support and celebration of young women for all the qualities they bring now and into the future.
We have been notified that two individuals have been harassing and intimidating members of the Tenterfield Community to not associate with The Girl to Woman Festival and its collaborative team members.
A woman named Esther Rockett has been targeting locals who have shown support for the Festival with emails designed to spread lies and defamatory content about us (her lies would by right incite reaction in any decent person to outrage or fear). We have also been informed of a woman calling herself ‘Anne from Ballina’ who has phoned people and walked into shops making threats to their reputation and ripping down posters.
The Girl to Woman Team would like to officially state that under no circumstance is harassment online or in person an acceptable behaviour in society. We do not tolerate it as adults and by that we set a standard of respect and decency for our aspiring youth.
The local Police have been informed of this harassment.
Have you or someone you know been harassed? If yes, we encourage you to read the support document in the link below, as published on our website.
If you are contacted by phone or in person by someone making claims about the Festival we request that you ask for the person’s full name and phone number and contact us via our Facebook page.
You can also contact your local Police to report the incident. If you are in the Tenterfield local area contact: 6736 1144
Thank you to everyone far and wide for the continual support of this very needed event … countdown to G2W Tenterfield is on! Facebook
Who wants to bet ‘Anne from Ballina’ is Anne-nonymous – as real as one of UM’s supernatural spooks, the Four Lords of Form – invented to hype the paranoia and persecution narrative?
Sarah Davis – an Esoteric role model
I pulled up the above mentioned ‘support document’ apparently authored by Sarah. It exemplifies a lot of the problems we have with the Festival. It doesn’t address any of the concerns we’ve raised, and omits and obscures critical information.
This is not Sarah’s first rodeo either. She started making pseudo-legal threats at me in 2013. The first on Christmas morning at 5:30 am. Last year I answered another one after I protested UM’s infiltration of the Positive Adolescent Sexual Health (PASH) conference. I replied to her email, and also posted my response online. Unfortunately UM’s hypocrites still had a big presence at this year’s event – which was attended by NSW Northern Rivers high school students, on the public purse.
As much as Universal Medicine likes to advertise its ‘full transparency’, it still needs help in making proper disclosures. I’ve pasted the text from the cited ‘support document‘ below, struck out the incorrect information and added my corrections in blue plus links:
Natalie Benhayon, Founder of The Girl To Woman Festival, wanted to be an ‘international TV star’
As a community-focussed event, The Girl to Woman Festival brings together over 70 Universal Medicine associated businesses and organisations from across Australia in its planning and implementation. All volunteering their time and expertise freely to advance the
health and wellbeingrecruitment of girls and women to our user pays religion and habit forming products and services.
Understanding the dollar value of
this festival togirls’ and women‘s expenditure in the region, the Lennox Head, Lismore and Ballina Universal Medicine commercial communities have continually shown their support for the festival. This year, our summer event was attended by peopleUM subscribers from Lennox Head to Darwin. Our honorary guests included the Mayor of Ballina, David Wright.
UnLike many community initiatives in the public sphere, The backers of the Girl to Woman Festival have
notbeen immune todishing out online harassment and bullying for years – against anyone who gets in the way of their lines of recruitment and profit.
With a strong commitment to the expansion of our spiritual and business community, we support all organisations that volunteer their time in support of The Girl to Woman Festival to have a clear roadmap to
address suchperpetuate the harassment and profits.
The Girl to Woman Festival is an unpopular East Coast Festival that is now in its third year. The summer festival held in Lennox Head in early 2017
was attended byroped in a group of Tenterfield locals who loved what was on offer. Having been thoroughly misled, we allege They later approached organiser Natalie Benhayon about bringing the festival to Tenterfield. From this, the Tenterfield Girl to Woman Festival was born.
The main sponsor of the Festival is Esoteric Women’s Health. Founded by Universal Medicine Pty Ltd, the Esoteric Practitioners Association Pty Ltd and College of Universal Medicine Pty Ltd company director and Festival founder Natalie Benhayon, its board members include Universal Medicine Pty Ltd, Esoteric Practitioners Association Pty Ltd and College of Universal Medicine Pty Ltd, company director, lawyer and RTO (Benhayon owned Evolve College Pty Ltd) General Counsel Serryn O’Regan and
International Women’s HealthEsoteric Breast Massage practitioner and former company director of Universal Medicine UK Sara Williams.
Esoteric Women’s Health was ‘inspired and made possible by’ the bloke who invented Esoteric Breast Massage – seen below with one of the Festival organizers, ‘social media educator’ and UM employee, Rebecca Asquith, sharing his ‘philosophy’ on how ‘equality’ gives women breast and gynaecological disease. [Cued and ready to go].
The Girl to Woman Festival is a flagship event of the organisation with tickets over-priced to ensure it
is a sustainable option formisleadingly introduces families and local communities to UM beliefs, products, services and associated businesses.
Esoteric Women’s Health hosts events worldwide, predominately advocating and presenting initiatives for advancing
women’s health and well-beingUM business interests and its New World Religion that is our non-negotiable One Unified Truth®. The organisation values confidence, self-respect and self-worth for women and girls of all ages as long as they go along with everything UM says. If they ask questions we don’t like we’ll bully them with accusations of being loveless, pranic and in ‘male energy’.
About Universal Medicine
The Girl to Woman Festival is also supported by Universal Medicine, a complementary health provider and unregistered training organisation with an international clientele – which is also an occult religion selling commercial exorcisms that has attracted bad press for five years.
WhilstA Universal Medicine company director is notthe founder or organiserof the Girl to Woman event, it isand UM is a natural supporter because of a shared ethos of care forseeking women and their families’ expenditure and unquestioning allegiance.
stronga frequently contradictory pro-medicine stance to support an integrateddeceive customers it is a legitimate approach to healthcare, the Universal Medicine clinic in Goonellabah near Lismore provides a range of health and healing services including Esoteric Psychology, Physiotherapy, Remedial and Sports Massage, Beauty Therapy, and Esoteric Breast Massage, Sacred Esoteric Healing, Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy, and Esoteric Chakra-Puncture.
Come on Sarah, that’s a major omission. You didn’t think you should disclose UM’s actual trade? The Esoteric ‘modalities’ invented by the ex tennis coach with no formal qualifications after he heard voices while sitting on the toilet?
This year the clinic was awarded the People’s Choice Award at the Lismore Business Excellence Awards for the third time thanks to votes from UM investors, including a number who don’t live in Lismore. It also received a highly-commended acknowledgement for their excellence in health services in spite of three of its affiliated registered health professionals receiving official reprimands, and UM’s false and misleading health claims being slammed by a NSW Parliamentary Inquiry.
In addition, its CFO Deborah Benhayon was awarded a Community Service Award from the Premier for her work supporting the UM community in her volunteer role as the President of the Lismore Chamber of Commerce and Industry making sure UM businesses got maximum publicity out of the Lismore flood disaster. Did we mention it’s the Lismore Chamber of Commerce that gives the ‘People’s Choice Award’?
BackgroundOur Beat-up on Esther Rockett
Universal Medicine has
unfairlyjustifiably been the subject of target of sensationalised47+ negative media reports since 2012. Manufactured ‘controversy’ regarding the organisation has been printed in the media including baseless complaints made to government departments, which upon investigation were dismissed because of no wrongdoing found on the part of Universal Medicine. Follow up articles regarding the dismissal of all complaints made about Universal Medicine have not yet been reported, despite being a matter of public record.
Where on the public record, Sarah? UM propaganda websites are neither an official nor reliable source.
Please produce the official documentation that states or proves my complaints were ‘baseless’ and ‘dismissed’ with ‘no wrongdoing found’.
Actions were taken by the Charities Commissions in Australia and the UK, the ATO and AHPRA. I have official documents in my possession, some are in the public domain, and Benhayon is in the process of producing the rest, under court orders, to get an airing in the NSW Supreme Court.
Esther Rockett has been central to
inflaming controversy aboutexposing material the organisation has tried to conceal from public scrutiny and has conducted an extensive online and offline campaign againstcalling for Universal Medicine, its founder Serge Benhayon and anyone she considers to be associated with that organisation to advertise their products and services clearly and honestly, abide by codes and laws, and account for their conduct. She has provided the media with material that she then relies upon to laterjustify her campaign and false allegationspublications. She has made extensive and numerous complaints about the organisation to regulators, which have all led to the same end with no wrongdoing foundled to significant regulatory actions and considerable antagonism and retaliation from UM. As a result of the inflammatory informationWe talked about suing her for literally years before we worked up the courage, and Esther Rockett continues to disseminate on the Internet and in letters to organisations, sheis currently facing legal proceedings in both NSW and QLD for defamation. She has filed comprehensive defences of justification, and is represented by four barristers, including two QCs. Her legal team are not billing her, and will take their payment from the award of costs. She is still waiting for Benhayon to give full disclosure and discovery of documents relevant to facts in issue in the proceedings five months after he was ordered by the court to do so.
Unfortunately for our interests, the Girl to Woman Festival has been targeted by Esther Rockett as part of her campaign against
anyone associated withUniversal Medicine’s unethical conduct. She has attempted to derailcompel the festival to properly disclose its backing, its commercial nature, and the organization’s harmful, sexist and anti-social belief system for the three years it has been offered. The Lennox Head, Ballina and Lismore UM communities have stood strongretaliated vindictively in the face of such harassmentbeing asked to behave honestly and transparently. The strength of regional communities and the on the ground relationshipsthe evidence has have meant that she has had little traction or impact onhelped plenty of otherwise unwary people avoid the festival like the plague.
conductexposure of our unscrupulous enterprise should be considered as everything we doUniversal Medicine does not want on the Internet and what we wish to protect our young peoplelines of profit from. HerOur conduct fittingfits squarely within current community concerns over unscrupulous organizations that prey on the vulnerable, retaliate against whistleblowers and label legitimate criticism ‘cyber abuse‘ and ‘harassment‘. Generally, we can assure you that our attempts to bully and defame Esther Rockett has not continued with her harassment once she has provided her ‘notifications’ to the recipienthave only made it more obvious we have something to hide and made her more determined to get all the damning evidence before the courts.

thisUM’s harassment and the importance of the community organisations and businessesstanding together in the face of trolling and harassmentcommercial religions that are targeting kids and other vulnerable people.
