Teachers are Gold, a UniMed cult front group headed by zero credentials Michael Benhayon, recently renewed its recruitment assault on unsuspecting Australian and UK teachers and schools. It’s not being received too well. The front is engaging in persistently deceptive conduct by omission, but most concerning is the risks to children exposed to UM.
Because the education & child care professionals involved haven’t put their names to their Universal Medicine cult promotions, their full names and locations are listed below.
In 2014, Serge Benhayon stated to the NSW HCCC that he has a current Working With Children Certificate. It needs to be taken away from him immediately, for a host of reasons we’ve already documented, including his cavalier attitude to inappropriate touching, the exposure of children to sexually explicit subject matter and the use of covert hypnosis in exorcistic practices at Esoteric events. And then there’s his questionable history with his current wife.
Universal Medicine’s recruiters have been active in the education system for a while, but in the last week we’ve seen the cult publicize its push into schools, targeting children with ‘True Movement’ exercise classes and recruiting teachers through the ‘Teachers are Gold’ project. The revelations have caused outrage among our readers, so I’ve put together some resources anyone can send to schools and other stakeholders to to make sure schools are not used for the cult’s mass predatory grooming.
Universal Medicine is extending it’s mass predatory grooming into schools with the help of cult psychologists, education consultants and exalted underachiever, Michael Benhayon. Teachers are Gold is a new initiative targeting school teachers, student teachers and other educators to recruit to Serge Benhayon’s commercial religion. Typical of cult fronts, publicity provides no disclosure of fees, charges or funding, and no hint of the Benhayons’ religious anti-intellectual and anti-education teachings, or the practices and beliefs that put children at risk.
Universal Medicine cult leader Serge Benhayon’s public lies are now so numerous they’ll soon take up their own dedicated blog page. They’re also so audacious Benhayon has extended his dishonesty to making false statements to regulatory authorities, which is an offence under state and federal laws. A decision letter from the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission about Benhayon teaching inappropriate touching at Esoteric Healing Workshops states that Benhayon has a current working with children’s certificate. A check with the Office of the Child Guardian reveals he has not. [Correction: subsequent checks have shown he gained or renewed the check on January 19, valid until 2019] But that is only one of several false statements made to the regulator by Serge and now Miranda Benhayon.
Universal Medicine followers will easily recognize the statements as false, but will they persist in believing in their guru’s utmost integrity? And more importantly, what excuses will the HCCC make this time for failing to adequately investigate and failing to act?
As Universal Medicine cult leader Serge Benhayon continues to pound his Esoteric pulpit on the evil energy of perfectly nutritious foods, we should all be alarmed to hear he’s imposed further restrictions on the Esoteric diet – better described as self-loving starvation. Meanwhile the Huffington Post continues to pay cult apologist Sarah Cloutier to promote a dangerous eating disorder under the guise of ‘food writing’. And I’m officially a troll.
In the Universal Medicine cult children are regarded as superior beings until their intellectual capacity develops enough for them to question Serge Benhayon’s teachings. Like the rest of the cult followers, children are free to express themselves provided they do so without emotion, intellect, ideals, creativity, activity or criticism. Benhayon views familial karma as invariably bad, and he exploits painful pasts along with parental feelings of inadequacy to divide families and redirect followers’ loyalty from loved ones to the cult. Divisions are sealed when cult members adopt narcissistic self-love as their parenting ethos, ensuring children are emotionally starved. Finally, as evidenced from the behaviour of his own family, his version of parenting is not about nurturing and protecting but dominance and control.
