Surviving Universal Medicine – Olga speaks

It took a life-threatening experience for “Olga” to break away from Universal Medicine’s hold. First hand accounts like hers are exactly what this unscrupulous organization and its propaganda mill are aggressively attempting to keep from the public. Olga did everything she could to follow the “fiery path” to the “light of the soul” misleadingly marketed as “The Way of the Livingness”.

It nearly killed her.

Guilt, death and the absence of grief

Universal Medicine cult leader, Serge Benhayon, programs followers to believe disease is punishment for failing to adhere to the oppressive moral code he calls the Livingness. In the following extracts and quotes from Universal Medicine’s ‘truth’ blogs, his followers, including medical professionals, express guilt for minor infractions, and their beliefs that cancer is deserved and disease is a blessing. Responses from fellow cult members reveal Benhayon’s success in emotionally neutering his followers to the point where they believe death is nothing to mourn.

Serge Benhayon’s magical thinking – developing disease is a moral choice

Universal Medicine’s specialists in pseudoscience take the meaningless premise that ‘everything is energy’ and extrapolate it into an Esoteric theory of disease causation where the human body reflects a person’s moral indiscretions, disease results from incorrect thoughts and behaviour, cancer is a blessing and the prevention of disease is secured by the ‘choice’ to join Serge Benhayon’s cult and pay big bucks to toe his puritanically perverse Livingness line.

Esoteric Parenting Part 2 – self-loving parents and divided families

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.

Death Drive Part 2: Serge Benhayon & the cult doctors

Cult leader, Serge Benhayon is quoted referring to life energy as the root cause of ‘all ill conditions’, that our Soul has no need for a physical body, that health practices are a waste of energy on a body we will eventually not need, and that  death is a ‘healing’. He’s welcome to his beliefs, but we have a major problem when he establishes a large, highly profitable, international ‘healing’ organization around them, and uses covert hypnotic techniques to indoctrinate the unsuspecting into a drive toward death. Worse when doctors publicly participate, and worse again when AHPRA, the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority, fails to take regulatory action.

Death Drive Part 1: Serge Benhayon’s cult of death – the doctrine

Esoteric students believe they’re following a path of ‘innermost loving’ and ‘Soulfulness’, yet, analysis of the Universal Medicine cult leader’s writings reveal that Esoteric ‘healing’ is a euphemism for a drive toward death. The ‘glory’ of a UniMed death is marketed as a gateway to more distinguished reincarnations, as well as a ‘cleansing’ and finally a ‘healing’. But not before Serge extracts the maximum funds.
