Next month, Esoteric Women’s Health will run a ‘free’ one day retreat for breast cancer patients at Lismore City Hall. It will be conducted by GP and cancer survivor, Dr Jane Barker, nurse, Sharon Gavioli and two more innocuous looking cultists. As usual, the publicity for the event is a pink and flowery deception – with no hint of Serge Benhayon’s contribution of pseudoscience, sexism and toxic magical thinking.
Beauty-full lies – by omission
Patients have every right to know what they’re signing up for when they attend an event run by adherents of Benhayon’s ‘One Unified Truth’. Esoteric Women’s Health Pty Ltd is a Benhayon company and the breast cancer ‘care’ Dr Jane Barker and colleagues are selling is a promotion of Benhayon’s doctrines and the Universal Medicine cartel’s products and services.
The Universal Medicine cult women’s health recruitment process:
Patients are lured with flowers and love hearts, the promise of gentle hands on healing, and the reassuring presence of women doctors, breast cancer survivors, nurses and ‘healers’. During the presentation, patients are encouraged to share their personal histories with the group. The nice, interested and caring presenters hone in on difficult and sad experiences to sell the patients victimhood – packaged with soothing talk of self-care and gentle breath meditation.
Positive life experiences are disregarded in Benhayon’s bent theory of disease causation. Esoteric Women’s Health tells these patients their illness was caused by their choice to live ‘lovelessly’, and that illness, such as cancer, is a ‘cleansing’. Women are told that caring for their families has eroded their ‘femaleness’ and their ability to ‘self-nurture’. They are told their breast or gyne cancers have been caused by living in male energy, or men ‘imposing’ on them. They are told their bodies are dumping sites for disease causing energies, and that the breasts and reproductive organs are the main sites for accumulating ‘imposed ills’.
Fearful of their polluted, diseased bodies, those successfully targeted sign up for Esoteric healings to clear the hypothetical energy. They develop a habit when they’re led to believe there is more and more energy to clear and that they have to keep having treatments to ‘get there’. As they become more involved, they are told Esoteric healing is the only way to clear the ‘pranic’ loveless energy, and that pranic energy and supernatural entities have not only entered their bodies during this lifetime, but over thousands of years previous. They are told if they don’t clear the energy, they will be born into disease, disability and misfortune in future lifetimes. If they don’t obey the Way of the Livingness prohibitions, the damnation will spread to their offspring, and their children could be raped by evil entities.
They are told emotion is the cause of all disease. The condemnation of sex and male energy makes them increasingly uncomfortable with the men in their lives. Relationships fracture. They are told leaving money to loved ones who aren’t living Esoterically will harm the whole family line’s future incarnations. Divorce settlements and bequests are signed to Benhayon’s various fundraising ventures with the help of Universal Law solicitors.
Patients suffer out their illness believing their lives have been wasted on ‘illusion’ and they are being ‘cleansed’ for an improved standing on Benhayon’s patented initiation scale in their next lifetime.
And it all begins with love hearts and flowers.
Esoteric Womens Health – a doctrinal sampler
On Esoteric Breast Massage:
This sacred esoteric technique assists to heal many issues such as painful periods, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, bloating/water retention, and pre-menstrual and menopausal symptoms.
It is not surprising to see the amazing results, but most importantly, the deeply revealing discoveries that women are making about themselves through the release of what is insidiously held in their nurturing centres – their breasts. Archived Esoteric Breast Massage Site (was erased when media began asking questions)
If there is no nurturing energy in the breasts the baby suckling will receive the milk, but will not get the nurturing energy. All is energy, and if the breasts are not clear when the baby is feeding, the baby will also receive the ill-energy that is in the breasts. This aspect is revelatory and unique to this process. Put simply, we now have a true choice about the actual quality of our feeding milk. Archived EBM Website Q&A page.
The causes of disease:
Women have achieved equality, in some measure, by ‘out-male-ing’ the man. Therefore, they too, are in the excessiveness of male energy. This why there are so many cases of ovarian cancer, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, breast cancer, etc. (Benhayon, 2011, p.519)
An emotion is never a true feeling. It is at best the true feeling of your reactions to what you originally felt. Know this energetic truth, for emotions are the root cause of all diseases. (Benhayon, 2011, p.80)
If you love your children with and from emotional love, you are just passing down to another generation a form of love that has not ever worked. (Benhayon, 2011, p.693)
We have been confusing love for a baby with the enormous need they have of us. Too many foster that need so that the dependency keeps them needed as the child grows. This is not love – it is a form of control that is used to cover up for the adult who was not shown true love when they were young. (Benhayon, 2011, p.693)
Interpret compassion as an emotion and you have drunk the poison of another…Have sympathy for the sick and you will take on the emotions of their sickness. (Benhayon, 2011, p.284)
Cancer as an ‘accurate marker for the truth they are’
The body is the marker of all truth…The truth of your life runs throughout your body. (Benhayon, 2011, p.569)
It’s the choices you make in life and about life that will bring you the good medicine or the bad. (Ibid. p.571)
Illness and disease are only markers. They are but mere reflections of our many choices. (Benhayon, 2011, p.586)
If everything is energy, then there is an energetic harm and an energetic true good. If we have disease, then there has to be an energy that caused that disease. So, what has occurred? What have I done? What have I been involved in, what emotions do I allow, how do I walk, sit speak and interact with everybody from an energetic point of view that allows some form of energy to enter that is not good for me to come into my body and create what we call a cancerous cell or a cancerous tumour? Is the world ready for this simple truth? (Benhayon, 2011, p.619)
If we wake up with a cancerous tumour, or diabetes, or with arthritis, or even just exhaustion, with a sneeze, a cough, a runny nose – then there has been a way that we have been living that has caused it. Because everything is energy, the way you have been living energetically has allowed your body to operate with an ill energy that then manifests the ills you physically, physiologically, emotionally and psychologically will have. Death is always a healing – and not part of the failure. (Benhayon, 2011, p.599)
Questions for Dr Barker:
Can you verify how a person’s choices on how they walk, sit or interact ‘energetically’ causes cancer or is that an assumption you make based on your religious adherence to The Way of the Livingness?
If emotions and the way a person has been living causes cancer, how do you isolate those causes from other causative factors that have nothing to do with emotion or lifestyle choices?
What evidence do you have that Esoteric healing assists symptoms?
What value does the medical establishment attribute to anecdotal evidence? Why is it so poorly regarded?
How does energy enter the body to create a cancerous tumour? How is that measured? Verified?
How do you explain the inconsistencies in who develops disease and who does not – taking into account their lifestyle choices? What does a child with leukaemia ‘choose’?
What is your financial relationship with Universal Medicine?
Is this why you and your colleagues falsely defamed me to AHPRA and now online? Because I question the abusive disgrace you are contributing to?
How do you sleep at night?
This rubbish will probably become part of the curriculum for the dodgey, tax exempt College of Universal Medicine – a charitable institution set up to promote Benhayon’s business – an enterprise based on his harmful doctrines on health. The development of the College program is assisted by a dozen or so cult struck health professionals who are benefiting financially and socially from their involvement with Universal Medicine.
Universal Medicine, including Esoteric Women’s health, is preying on cancer patients. By enlisting health professionals to push damaging practices they are abusing vulnerable patients and denying them the right to seek legitimate and trustworthy health care.
Cancer patients are more collateral damage in the expansion of the UM empire.
