Serge Benhayon in the Media
Serge Benhayon’s relationship with the media is, from a certain angle, an inconceivable story to comprehend; one that will be the subject of further studies in the future. Prior to 2012 Serge held nothing less than mutual and respectful engagements with those in the media, with regular annual appearances in local radio interviews as well as having been invited to present at the heralded Byron Writer’s Festival.
In 2012, Serge, his family and his clientele experienced firsthand the same indignity as had been occurring in the media scandal in the UK. Though Serge is the first to acknowledge that there would be some very decent journalists in the media industry, those that deceptively came after him were not what the general public would regard, at the very least, as decent or honest if they knew the real story behind the appalling final print. These few, and one would sincerely trust not all are like this mob, took the liberty to attack him personally on many levels, a completely indignant act that was void of common decency and had very little to absolutely no facts. As such 2012 saw the beginning of a vicious, negative and destructive smear campaign that was initially orchestrated by a small handful of disgruntled cyber abusers and a behind the scenes lobby group manipulating the tabloid press with nothing but utterly false accusations and defamatory misinformation.
No surprise, Serge had many years earlier predicted that this would one day be the case. He had shared that too many had too much to be exposed by what the Ageless Wisdom presented on the energetic truths of life.
How one man has had to deal and contend with the utterly disgraceful onslaught as displayed by these ruthless and prejudiced journalists, and still hold himself and his business with ever growing service and esteem, is in itself a grand story, one that says much about the quality of his teachings and the philosophical and religious life he lives.
With Serge at the receiving end of some of the vilest and most disturbing accusations, suggestions and inferences by the hate mob, a few journalists joined the hatred campaign and became a complicit party to the deliberate intent to cast out into the public domain a false and misleading image in order to destroy and tarnish Serge’s livelihood. A series of articles ensued as part of a vicious attack campaign lasting over two years, and still continuing to this day on the internet.
Lance Martin who has publicly admitted that he blames Serge for the demise of his marriage, which, according to his ex-wife, had been failing well before they had heard of Serge Benhayon, continues to vehemently feed anyone with his unfounded hurts and hatreds, and further, hiding behind pseudonyms over the internet, seeks to cyber abuse his target. In one show of bravado like threat he has vowed to bring down Serge and his business operations; a very clear indication of a desperate and unhealthy obsession.
In the face of it all, the grace and dignity of Serge remain as strong and unwavering as has always been the case.
Where most men would crumble under such unjust extraordinary pressures and stresses, understandably withdrawing from life as a whole, we have seen the very opposite with Serge Benhayon.
He is today as active and as committed to his work and the many projects he helps others with as ever. Admiringly, he also remains as dedicated as ever with his family and friends and he continues to impart the integrity he is well known for, never holding back on his warmth and love, a love he extends to all in his full-time work as the practitioner, presenter, author, founder and director of the Esoteric Modalities.
Many hundreds of people within the community and further abroad have witnessed his business continuing to flourish and grow, his health become ever more vital, his family expanding and shining and his relationships deepening. Serge Benhayon has not backed away from living truth. He continues to share, express, inspire and give back to people within the community, just as he has always done and will continue to do – unwaveringly so.
Serge and his wife Miranda Benhayon defy many stereotypes projected onto relationships, with a 17-year age difference between them not bearing any influence, and more poignantly defying the impact of horrendously false and sickly accusations that have been slanderously fabricated and thrown at them since mid 2012 in desperate and weak attempts to tarnish/destroy their relationship, from people that don’t even know them nor have ever met them and certainly have no understanding of the level of the love that these two live every day.
