Sex and Serge Benhayon

Sex is energetic rape. (Benhayon, 2011, p.695)

Sexual exploitation is a hallmark of cults, and cult leader Serge Benhayon’s aberrant teachings and practices are integral to the profitability of Universal Medicine and its main recruitment arm, Esoteric Women’s Health Pty Ltd. Disturbing teachings on the disease causing ‘energy’ of normal sexuality, the karma of sexual violence and puritanical prescriptions for emotionless love making sit uneasily with in house assessments of ‘sexiness’. A culture of personal boundary transgressions, including inappropriate touching highlights the sexual confusion among devotees. The manipulation is essential to UniMed’s lucrative death drive; psychologically destabilizing followers, fracturing intimate relationships with non followers, and inducing dependency on dubious occult therapies

Esoteric Women’s Health – new marketing offensive

WILMagThe Universal Medicine cult’s primary recruitment gateway, Esoteric Women’s Health Pty Ltd, has had a makeover in fresh pursuit of the minds and dollars of susceptible women. New marketing doesn’t disclose its basis in Serge Benhayon’s occult religion of sexism and toxic magical thinking. Rather, the glamour shots conceal gender divisiveness, gynaecological exhibitionism, privacy invasion, over servicing and other predatory behaviour. And no amount of make-up and floral logos can conceal the narcissism, bitchiness and bullying central to its anti-social ideal of ‘self nurturing’.

What to expect from this weekend’s Universal Medicine Couples Workshop

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.  Continue reading

Cult leader, Serge Benhayon, is a fairly ordinary, not so clever bloke who can only establish himself as Universal Medicine’s alpha male by disparaging competing men via thought reform indoctrination. Based on derogatory stereotypes, his ‘occult philosophy’ demonizes so called ‘male’ traits of sexual desire, intellect and physical activity to encourage followers to reject anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the cult. Followers are then sold the remedy of ‘femaleness’ to make them more compliant and keep them dishing out the cash. In this final instalment in the Esoteric manhood series, we look at how Benhayon exploits the trope of male emotional inferiority to disempower cult men and turn women against his competitors.

Woman Good, Man Evil – Esoteric gender mashing

Ben Quilty_Smashed (Diptych)

Ben Quilty ‘Smashed’

Universal Medicine followers uncritically accept cult leader, Serge Benhayon’s polarized views on gender where violence, corruption and disorder are conflated with masculinity. ‘Femaleness’, as in gentleness, stillness and submission, is presented as the antidote and simplistically tied to virtue and Esoteric charades of ‘nurturing’, ‘healing’ and ‘love’. As many readers know, those who fail to conform to Benhayon’s standard of castrated manhood are tarred as bullies, abusers and perverts, placing a strain on relationships already under pressure from the demands of loved ones adhering to the cult. In this first post of three on Esoteric Manhood, Benhayon’s writings reveal his divisive views on gender that have contributed to relationship discord among Universal Medicine cultists.

Feel-good Fascists – feminine bullying within the Universal Medicine cult

Anyone new to the abominations of the Universal Medicine cult asks the same questions. How has it profited from an industry of abuse for over twelve years without scrutiny and why have no victims, apart from myself, come forward? The answer is simple. Look at what we’re up against – large numbers of  publicly vocal SergeBride mafia exerting peer oppression with their arsenal of Esoteric NICE. Yet, no matter how much they spout the SergeSpeak NICE-isms, stroke each other’s bodies oh so gently and dress up their publicity with floral arrangements and pink and purple love-hearts, there’s no disguising their fascist bullying, smothering dissent and pimping their sisters and daughters to the cult.  Continue reading

Esoteric Breast Massage Part 2 – hyperbole, evasion and just plain bad therapy

Detail from ‘Jeune Femme’ by Adolphe Etienne Piot

Ever since scrutiny of Universal Medicine’s abusive Esoteric Breast Massage intensified, the cult has made hamfisted efforts to manage public perception, attempting to hose down the sleazy aspects and downplaying false therapeutic claims. Efforts to portray the practice as ethical included hyperbolic assertions of ‘integrity’, the endorsement of cult doctors, and insisting on meaningless ‘consent’. After all, the cult is in the business of making money and bringing in new, cashed up and suggestible recruits. Yet, in the end, EBM is an unpleasant, therapeutically worthless exercise in life and body negating indoctrination.
