Universal Medicine is extending it’s mass predatory grooming into schools with the help of cult psychologists, education consultants and exalted underachiever, Michael Benhayon. Teachers are Gold is a new initiative targeting school teachers, student teachers and other educators to recruit to Serge Benhayon’s commercial religion. Typical of cult fronts, publicity provides no disclosure of fees, charges or funding, and no hint of the Benhayons’ religious anti-intellectual and anti-education teachings, or the practices and beliefs that put children at risk.
Update May 2016 – Teachers are Gold Children are rubbish. Teachers are Gold ejected from education conference.
The Teachers are Gold site features a statement that they ‘support the College of Universal Medicine‘ – the bogus charity set up to give tax exemption to cult expansion and recruitment. The Teachers are Gold team consists mostly of CoUM ‘educators’ including unqualified Michael Benhayon as its spiritual leader. We’ve already covered the kind of hostile education the College of UM provides under the guidance of its founding messiah.
Here’s Serge Benhayon on universities:
If you pull a, uh, excuse the stereotyping, but any intellectual out of university and you start to talk about feeling energy, they, you know, they say, prove it, show me the research, show me the 30 year study. I don’t feel it. I understand energy and they can relate it to terms of physics and science, but they don’t really say I can feel it and experience it and know what it’s about, because if they did, they wouldn’t be at university because the energy there is awful. It’s full of mental energy. It’s actually quite cold, damp and heartless. That’s the energy of universities. So for them to be there, just to be there, that means they have to shut down enormously who they are. They have to be not aware of what they feel and place an enormous amount of importance of what they need to over ride what the energy is showing. So if you needed to get a degree and it takes three or four years with honours or something like that to get a degree, and you have to be there all that time under that cold energy that’s telling you that knowledge is everything, recall and memory is everything that you need to get your degree, but never once actually caring about you in any way shape or form. In other words if you pass it doesn’t matter how you live your life. If you are living unlovingly, if you are sleeping around, if you’re doing drugs, if you’re doing speed to get through university, if you’re doing coffee to get through it, if you’re doing alcohol and so forth and so forth, nobody says, well you’re going to fail because you’re not healthy. Nobody says you’re not passing this semester, you’re failing all your subjects because the quality of way in which you sit in this classroom is awful. And you’re affecting us all because of the reflection you’re bringing in. It should be like that, but it’s not. They want you to pass. And they want you to pass with distinction or higher distinction or so forth, because they want to be seen as good lecturers and so forth and get a result. And see, that coldness, that bluntness, that recklessness, that lovelessness that it is, exists there. Well the person is there for three or four years while they are under that energy, and if you’re doing medicine it could be longer, seven years under the auspices of the university, although you’re not always there, you’re working in hospitals. Whatever it is, PhDs, you’re under that energy. And that energy isn’t loving. That energy doesn’t care about you. That energy wants you to perform. So that you make the university look good, so you can show yet another person who has graduated. And it gets worse than that because what they really want is your fees as well. Serge Benhayon, recording of Esoteric Medicine 11 lecture, July 26, 2012
From the man who’s built a multi-million dollar industry peddling his ‘truth’ scam, and charging for ‘charity‘.
The lecture, like all of Benhayon’s lectures, was preceded by a preparatory meditation/trance induction. It’s an uninterrupted monologue in front of a few hundred devotees who ask no questions. Cult members from around the world downloaded that lecture and scores more hours of such lectures as podcasts and listen to them up to 30 times. The same devotees say there’s no such thing as brainwashing.
‘Look into my eyes, university is heartless and cold and damp. University isn’t loving. It doesn’t care about you…’
I was saving this for the comments, but I’ll put it here: You don’t pay university fees to get healthy, or love. You don’t go to university to have your infantile needs met. The purpose of going to university is to get an education, gain knowledge and learn how to conduct research. Social or other benefits are what you make of it and come free of charge. Unlike UM, universities don’t sell ‘love’, health, ‘truth’, wisdom, ‘clair-sentience’, ‘feeling’, an initiation scale, reincarnation and a Way of Being® etc. Again, Benhayon’s anti-intellectual stance denigrates the same mental capacity that enables us to recognize and avoid con artists and scams. He undermines academic achievement to elevate his and his family of mediocrities’ lack of it. Ten bucks says he’s never set foot in a university.
Teachers are Gold programs
Standard UM marketing is a put down. Everyone who hasn’t felt UM’s love and light is miserable, sick and thwarted.
Many teachers are exhausted on many levels, emotionally, mentally, physically and energetically. Their very core and inner essence is drained in life. This then has an impact on the wellbeing of our future generations as they are being raised and educated about life in a system that is operating from overwhelm, anxiety and a sense of given up-ness – ‘It’s all too much!’. Teachers are Gold website
The programs page advertises the same services as the College of Universal Medicine – Wellness Days and Self-Care workshops, plus a bunch of Universal Medicine money for nothing mind fuck services – online videos and podcasts, bi-monthly seminars and support groups – all aimed at teachers. They’re also threatening an ‘appreciating and sharing’ platform where cult members will offer testimonials about their favourite cult teachers and how ‘amazing’ and ‘awe-some’ they are.
We’re looking forward to it, because we’ll be taking volunteers to help name every teacher that signs up and notify every school, every local state member, every state education department and the private school administrators of UM’s risks to children – including their practices of inappropriate touching, Serge Benhayon’s young female houseguests; the dangerous, developmentally damaging Esoteric diet, Natalie Benhayon’s sleazy youth groups, and the cult’s prohibitions on normal childhood activity and expression.
An observant reader noticed the Teachers are Gold site was altered within hours of this post. The champions of transparency removed links to this GET INVOLVED! page which refers to these planned events:
Teacher Appreciation Day
BBQ, Appreciation talks/sharing, Live Music, all in honour and celebration of the teachers and all that they are and bring.
We will help you to create and organise a teacher appreciation day event.
I bet they will.
Become a signatory of the Official Teachers are Gold! Statement
A unifying statement about appreciation, responsibility and brotherhood amongst all teachers and educators.
And the piece de resistance:
Apply here to be a Golden School
We will create a web page for you as you submit writing, photos and updates on your school’s activities. We will monitor your progress and support you to keep building your own page.
The Teachers are Gold Team of Facilitators
Michael Benhayon, looks and dresses like his father and talks like a slower recording of one of the old man’s lectures. He’s currently being marketed as another Benhayon sage, and the site is strewn with mind blowing platitudes, he’s alleged to have uttered:
“Teachers are living educators, and thus, are the carriers of living wisdom”
~ Michael Benhayon
The rest of the team graduated from cold and loveless universities. And while they’re busy prostrating themselves for The One, I don’t see any of them rushing to give back their degrees and the qualifications they abuse to lure vulnerable targets.
Vicky Geary and Marcia Owen were former proprietors of Activ Living, an education and training service for youth, which almost rebranded as Connect Consultancy, but couldn’t withstand the exposure. Marcia Owen devised a Tune In program and book for brainwashing teenagers into cult conformity. Owen and Geary were recipients of some of the federal funding rorted by Benhayon through Goonellabah YWCA, which may have amounted to over $700,000.
Kristy Wood of Kids in Connection is an educational consultant in Goonellabah, and her latest project is targeting adolescent girls. I’d appreciate it if anyone could name the schools where she has and is working. The state school district told me they don’t use educational consultants. Can anyone verify that?
Welcome to the Naming Names page Jo Frare and Aimee Jefferys. (Joanne Margaret Frare is a former psychologist – deregistered late 2017). How do you reconcile counseling adolescents and teens, including abuse victims, with promoting a religious organisation whose followers send their daughters to stay in the Benhayon household? Do you tell your adolescent clients they can be raped by supernatural entities if their father comes home from the pub and gives them a hug? Why are you promoting someone who teaches that?
Sarah Davis, who is now saying her cult PR business, Real Media Real Change, is a ‘non profit’ publishing outfit, is a cyber-bullying expert who sent me pseudolegal demands at 5 am on Christmas morning, and is such an expert on education and childhood wellbeing, she puts her own children in front of the camera to promote the religion of a bloke who says babies can be poisoned by breastmilk if it carries their mother’s emotions. The same bloke touches the genitals of sexual abuse survivors and calls it healing.
Gold is the colour one might associate with piss-takes, by the way.
