I am a woman who is also a wife and a mother. I work, change nappies, buy groceries, laugh, have fun, get tired, feel hurt, love my husband and occasionally clean the toilet. I am also one of the many beneficiaries of the courses and workshops held by Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. Your article “The Da Vinci mode”, published August 25 in the Good Weekend, purports to be an unbiased expose on Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine however in my view it is merely a sophisticated attempt at sensationalism whose intention is to alienate readers from the everyday hardworking decent people that attend Universal Medicine courses.
The journalist seeks to highlight the more intangible energetic teachings whilst the more simple, practical and common sense philosophies are denied. This story uses the relationship breakdown of a handful of people to misrepresent the character of Serge Benhayon giving no voice to the hundreds of relationships that have benefited by this work. Relationships break down all of the time and too often work, friends, children, in-laws even modern society are blamed or caught in the cross fire. In this far it doesn’t surprise me that there are people who blame Universal Medicine for the breakdown of their relationships. However it is sad that these critics cannot feel the true integrity of Universal Medicine and in such are not willing to TRULY take responsibility for their own relationships.
