Quacks in the System – Private Eye report on Universal Medicine’s links with the UK NHS

quackIn its February 7 edition, Britain’s top selling current affairs magazine, Private Eye, reported on the NHS promoting the Universal Medicine cult and its sham charity, the Sound Foundation, at a ‘Self Care Forum’ event at UM’s UK headquarters, the Lighthouse in Frome, Somerset.

And while National Health Service employee, Sound Foundation trustee, and former UM UK company director, Jane Keep, managed to dodge the Private Eye magnifying glass, she hasn’t escaped ours.

Called to account: ‘not for profit’ groups

This Today Tonight report on Australian charity regulation talks about the new rules for charities to make their audited accounts public. The Hill Song Church alone raised 50 million tax free dollars last year through its charity, but until this year, no one has ever asked them to account for it, and how that money is used to benefit the public. The same can be said for the College of Universal Medicine and cult leader, Serge Benhayon’s fiery property improvement fund.

The Sound Foundation Charity hates charity and music – except for the stuff they’re selling

Juzzie Smith, Chris James, Michael Benhayon all put out music that doesn’t need you to like it.

‘Juzzie Smith, Chris James, Michael Benhayon all put out music that doesn’t need you to like it.’ (EDG Student Notes)

The published object of the Sound Foundation Charitable Trust, founded by musician, Chris James, is to ‘benefit wellbeing through sound’. What that object doesn’t disclose is that the sound is restricted to that of cult leader, Serge Benhayon’s funny little voice – lecturing that music is poison – and the strains of muzak produced by business associate, James, and other cult members. Nor does the Foundation’s publicity mention that it’s a tax exempt front for the nasty Universal Medicine enterprise, which propagates belief that charity is evil on a par with paedophilia.

Update 2: Cult photographer and legal genius, Clayton Lloyd of Flawless Imaging, Goonellabah, issued a copyright infringement notice for the Chris James meme to the left, but did not take legal action when I issued a counter notice – another pathetic and unlawful abuse of DMCA takedowns by the cult in an attempt at censorship. My response to Lloyd is in the commentsContinue reading

SoundFoundationBritish Not for Profit Sector Journal, ‘Third Sector’, has reported that the Commission is monitoring the Sound Foundation Charitable Trust and has given the trustees a deadline of May next year to comply with a plan to manage conflicts of interest and issues regarding public benefit.

The Way of the Livingness – when the Universal Medicine ‘religion’ was denied charity status in the UK

Prior to adopting the Sound Foundation charity as the tax exempt front for Universal Medicine’s commercial operations in the UK, cult leader, Serge Benhayon, attempted to obtain charity status for his business by pitching it as a religion called ‘The Way of the Livingness‘. His marketing department sent out an email call to the faithful to provide testimonial on how the Livingness has benefited those around them. In spite of the propaganda, sanity prevailed and the Church of $erge failed to gain tax exemption from the UK Charity Commission. However, his ‘charity’ merely emerged in different packaging, undisclosed.

The tax exempt Sound Foundation charity – donating to Serge Benhayon’s UK church

UK-Retreat-2013-18

Serge Benhayon, UK Livingness Retreat, 2013, in the Sound Foundation conference facility. Construction funded by Universal Medicine students.

The Universal Medicine cult was denied charity status in the UK, but that hasn’t stopped the Benhayon enterprise from raising millions of gloriously tax free pounds through The Sound Foundation charity front to construct a plush Universal Medicine clinic and conference facility, and a swimming pool from which Sound Foundation trustee, Simone Benhayon, operates her swim school and Esoteric water healing racket.

Universal Medicine has a charity in the UK. The charity commission in the UK would not give UM charity status. Fortunately for us Chris James, one of the esoteric students had an existing charity called “the sound foundation” which he is allowing UM to use, as he does not need it. Esoteric Development Group lecture notes taken by Elizabeth Dolan, December 17, 2011.
