This site is dedicated to presenting the facts about Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. This is in response to a large-scale online and off line harassment campaign by cyberbullies.
The main tactic of the cyberbullies, including Lance Martin and Esther Rockett, has been that Serge Benhayon has masterminded a cult with brainwashed adherents. Esther Rockett posing as Pranic Princess and Venus Darkly – moderates the anonymous blogs that the group use to harass and intimidate founder Serge Benhayon, his family, students of Universal Medicine and anyone associated with the healing practice.
This false narrative which they have further made public through some sections of the media, anonymous phone calls and a bogus press kit – has to ignore that a large number of people have embraced the philosophical and religious work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, not because of charismatic leadership or any desire on his part to have ‘students’ but by their own choice. What is important to state here is that the student body created itself, it was not the product of any design on the part of Serge Benhayon.
To understand how the student body came about, one needs to backtrack a little and understand the purpose behind Serge Benhayon’s courses and presentations. Initially, Serge Benhayon started out as a healer doing individual sessions from purpose-built rooms at his Wollongbar home. In a very short period of time and entirely via word of mouth recommendations, Serge found himself with a six-month long wait list for his services. People began travelling from interstate and overseas to see him for a one-hour session. Through his long held commitment to love and relationship with God, Serge presented a wisdom and reflection of love, joy and vitality that people had not seen before in their own lives – it was and remains to this day, truly remarkable. The deep power and inspiration was the fact that Serge’s absolute understanding of equality and brotherhood meant that those who felt his loving presence understood that this quality of universal love is also within them – to be expressed through their unique essence.
Consistently treating in the clinic from 5am to 6pm at night, Serge saw people from all walks of life, from celebrities and sport stars to corporate high flyers, to spiritualists and waitresses, to nurses with burnout… and always the service remained the same.
In the Sacred Esoteric Healing sessions, people got to feel and reconnect to the simplicity of what it was like to just be – free of their roles and identifications and free from the impositions of society and the stresses and anxieties that result from our daily interactions with life. Through the observation of his clients, Serge Benhayon noticed that whilst people were able to connect to such loving stillness in the session, they were unable to sustain such a connection in the outside world, with the seeming demands of everyday life.
As such, and in response to his clients asking how he lived and held such vitality, clarity, strength and consistency, workshops and courses were developed to impart the simple techniques that would enable people to hold and maintain their connection to the same living stillness that he had connected to, regardless of their external circumstances. These courses and presentations were only ever designed to assist those individuals who were drawn to them, in particular to help his clients build upon what they connected to in their private sessions. As such, they were never advertised, or marketed in any way shape or form.
Through word of mouth, the courses grew, and the amount of people attending the courses also grew. In time, these people started to appreciate and expand upon their own ability to maintain and foster their connection with the same inner stillness (and love) that is inherent within us all.
From such beginnings, a group of people grew that were not just inspired by the teachings of Serge Benhayon, but more importantly by their own lived experience. In time, this group of people – that has come to be referred to as the student body – began to realise that the quality from which they live is a natural expression as one chooses to live from their Soul and thus is equally available to all who choose to re-connect, and further that this loving way is the equally deserved right of each and every human being. Thus the students’ dedication to expanding the understanding of the “Way of the Livingness” via workshops, internet blogs and websites (and a variety of other projects) in a way that is non-imposing, respect-full, and yet open to all who choose to wish to understand its simple loving ways.
Never was this the intention of Serge Benhayon. It was a body that grew from its own momentum of collective lived experience, and of course founded upon, inspired by, and unapologetically aligned in full to the teachings of Universal Medicine.
Serge Benhayon was not the mastermind behind a ‘Universal Medicine cult’ or ‘Serge Benhayon cult’. He has never had and continues to have no interest in having followers or students. As we have described, he began by finding that the demand for his work was so great that he needed to create courses and workshops to meet the demand that his one-person practitioner clinic could not meet. There was never any intention to build a following, simply an intention to share a way of living that he had found for himself was so healthful, so harmonious and so joyful that he felt he could only offer benefit if he gave others the opportunity to experience the simplicity of what he had learnt. And the business was built on word of mouth, and by others who saw the benefits of that work in their friends and families and also sought to find out what was being offered. The student body was built from that – those who chose to work with and alongside Serge Benhayon in developing the Living Way that he had given the foundational instruction in. This comes with the understanding that true freedom lies in our re-connection back to our Soul which was created in the image of God and therefore life becomes simply and only about love.
The presence of an independent student body of free thinking individuals who have chosen to work alongside Serge Benhayon in their development is no evidence of a ‘Serge Benhayon cult’ or ‘Universal Medicine cult’.
