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
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 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?
The Universal Medicine cult loves to gloat in its publicity that all its healing modalities are fully insured. However, the policy wording of a standard complementary medicine therapy indemnity insurance policy from Universal Medicine’s insurer, W. R. Berkley, specifically excludes molestation and psychological abuse. For the Benhayon family ‘healers’ and all of the Esoteric Breast Massagers this means they are paying for insurance for nothing. Given the abusive nature of their ‘modalities’, none of their practices are insured, but that shouldn’t deter their victims from pursuing a class action to seek compensation for damages.
Just over a month ago I submitted photographic images from an Esoteric Healing workshop manual of Serge Benhayon with his hand on a woman’s genitals accompanied by text describing it as a healing for ‘rape recovery’ to the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission. The Universal Medicine cult is undoubtedly overjoyed to know that the HCCC won’t be taking action and they can go on deceiving patients and molesting as usual.
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.

Esoteric Breast Massage is another Esoteric Women’s Health modality designed to lure women into the Universal Medicine cult via false claims of therapeutic efficacy and the ‘gentle’ and ‘nurturing’ feelings they’re told it instils. The technique is used to break down personal boundaries, exploit physical and emotional vulnerabilities, and instil recipients with a sense of pollution and victimhood only repeated sessions of Esoteric ‘healing’ can clear. Peer pressure stifles the voicing of misgivings to an extent, but it’s the participation and endorsement of doctors which gives victims a false sense of trust and security. Such endorsements are in breach of doctors’ professional code of conduct; a code which is meaningless when the national regulator, AHPRA sees no reason to enforce it. Continue reading →
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.
Breasts are conveniently located at the front of the female body, not too far under the nose and within massaging reach of most women’s hands, yet the Universal Medicine cult gets money out of women for Esoteric Breast Massage by insisting they are ‘disconnected’ from their breasts. The price includes bogus therapeutic claims, gratuitous touching by cult practitioners, invasion of privacy, over-servicing, indoctrination with body negative tropes and a generous dollop of man hating.
Serge Benhayon with his hand on a woman’s vulva. Sacred Esoteric Healing Advanced Level 2 Manual, p.71
September 2012 I went public with my account of Serge Benhayon’s sleazy attempt at reading my ovaries. For a year or so the Universal Medicine cult publicly pretended I don’t exist, while trying to have my blogs shut down and attempting to intimidate me with a variety of false complaints. May 2014 they set up defamatory website where Serge’s Brides insist the ovarian reading never happened and I’m a mentally ill liar. None of them were in the treatment room with me. Its easy to understand the denials and the harassment attempts – Serge has done the same to them, and to engage reasonably with me would involve defending the indefensible. Moreover, when I went public, I wasn’t aware of published photographic evidence of Benhayon’s abuses.
