Serge Benhayon – The Real Deal

I first saw Serge Benhayon in person in June 2010 at a Universal Medicine workshop named Heart Chakra 1.

I was amazed straight away that this man stood on what some would call a stage, but it was not a stage as Serge was not putting himself above others and he was not preaching or performing. It was more a platform, of a slightly raised height so that everyone in the room could see him equally and from all angles – so no-one would miss out. This was not for him and in a grandiose ‘look at me’ way, but something you would naturally do to ensure everyone in the room was included – that day I felt included, I felt at home.

One thing of particular note I realised as I watched him, was that you could get a lot from the way someone walks. Serge walked with a gentle confidence as he moved across the stage. When he stood still his body language was relaxed and open, not slumped. When he rubbed words off the presentation board it was without aggression. I’d never before taken such notice of how someone moved, but these details were standing out very clearly for me to see. I could tell that Serge was not trying but that he was at ease with himself and so his movements came naturally… it felt refreshing. My eyes kept honing in on these details and I felt myself relax as I watched each move.

As Serge Benhayon presented, again I was inspired by the way he was so humble and honest – a very ordinary man. This was a far cry from the many self-help, new age, spiritual presentations I had attended over the previous ten years or so. There was something different here.

The next day Serge walked past me as I stood in a line – this time he greeted me stating “It’s good to see you again”. I could feel the heart warming genuineness in that statement, like he was greeting a long lost friend. My attention really pricked up now: an ordinary man and now so genuine on a personal level.

The Serge Benhayon I saw on stage was the same Serge that had greeted me off stage. It was significant to note that he was no different. He had not put on a show on stage and then he was different off stage. He did not walk past workshop attendees ignoring them or acting like they weren’t there.

I met Serge a year later at another Universal Medicine workshop, greeting him warmly and sharing a hug. I felt that Serge did not want or need anything from me. We were, at that moment, two people sharing their open hearts and then we carried on with our day. I was left feeling confident, special and valued but not different or more special than anyone else in the room and surprisingly not feeling any residue of wanting more from him.

Every time I have spoken with Serge since, whether that’s in person or via email I am treated with:

  • Honour and respect as a fellow human being and as a woman,
  • Directness – no fluff or ambiguity,
  • Love – as in a deep care and consideration,
  • Encouragement and
  • Honesty.

Each time I encounter Serge I am left feeling of value, confident that I am worth being on this earth and that genuine love and kindness is still available. I have only spoken with Serge in person a few times but each time he treats me as an old friend. I have observed he is like this with others too.

Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine are inspiring me to change my life and live with the simplicity of an open and honest heart with anyone I meet.

Serge Benhayon is the real deal!

  1. Choosing to live a live of simplicity and with an open heart is no mean feat in the face of being constantly told that we need to harden up and protect ourselves from the big bad world. I’m beginning to ask whether the best form of protection is to be open and allow everyone in equally. Surely if we felt accepted and not judged by others, we would feel less likely to retaliate or need to protect ourselves further. It’s possible that there is a very simple way to turn everything around.

  2. Serge Benhayon sure is the real deal and because of that it is a joy to listen to him present. He presents what he lives himself and this is deeply inspiring.

  3. I am with you on this one, I really love how down to earth your writing style is, you can feel that you are a very real and direct person and I respect the way you have delivered this observation to the world. I feel you are speaking on behalf of many that have met Serge Benhayon over the years. I know that you summed up everything I would have liked to share, so for this I am grateful to you.

  4. The genuineness and committed-ness that is Serge Benhayon is constantly inspiring, and words don’t describe how much joy it brings to my life and that of many people I know.

    1. I totally agree Harry – committing to love certainly brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘commitment’, along with a whole new level of joy and liberation.

  5. On meeting with Serge what we share with him in person is so special and unique and leaves us feeling full of love without wanting more, and the amazing thing is that he has the huge capacity of divine love to share this with everyone he meets in his absoluteness.

  6. Serge Benhayon epitomizes the absoluteness and equalness of who we all are, as such represents and reminds us of our innate way of being, that we are far more than what we think and being Soulful is very real and very possible too for us all to live. This is a choice that is always available to us, choice that is forever ours to make.

  7. We are too much accustomed of being in relationships based on need. This so much so, that when we come across someone who relates to us no needing anything from us it feels very different. It brings wonder to a relationship.

  8. Yes Shevon a lot of what you say caught my attention as well when I first saw Serge Benhayon , like cleaning the white board , there was a delicate of touch and contact with the board that I had not seen with anyone before. There was a grace and elegance with him when he moved around the stage while presenting. And when we greeted each other it was with honour and nothing else. One of the most wonderful choices in my life, was to go and meet this man and to hear him present ,what a gorgeous surprise it was.

  9. Shevon, you have beautiful explained all the qualities Serge Benhayon walks with. He has a movement that is worth studying and does not hold back the fact that we all can choose to move and walk in the same way, allowing us to bring through the incredible qualities that is the true us.

  10. Beautiful Shevon, I have noticed the same thing about Serge when he presents, he does not elevate himself for his own benefit, but to ensure everyone can see and hear equally. This l’ve observed without fail every time he presents, often checking if this or that person can see past the lecturn, or the speaker, and that everyone in the room can hear clearly. There is not an ounce of aggrandising himself in anything Serge does in my experience… which given what he can deliver and how much he is able to present, is just further testimony to the fact he lives what he teaches.

  11. Thank you Shevon for your heart felt expression as this is a beautiful observation of Serge Benhayon. It is rare to come across someone you can call the real deal and Serge fits the bill without an inkling of doubt and in the bargain inspires many others across the globe to get it together to walk as the real deal themselves.

  12. Beautiful Shevon and I totally agree with every word you say, Serge Benhyaon is the ‘real deal’ not only because he speaks truth but also in the way he moves – his reflection is very powerful and deeply inspiring.

  13. A glowing testimony from someone who has taken to the time to make a decision for themselves. It’s not that this is not normal but it’s important for me to note as I have seen many things written about people by people who don’t even know the person. A lot of these things can be spiteful and degrading and yet when the question is asked they don’t even really know the person and some haven’t even seen the person face to face and yet consider themselves to be an ‘expert’ from what they have heard from others. For me it’s ok to take someones advice but the only way to truly know someone or something is to do your own research. This is why I respect articles like this, someone has taken the time to see for themselves.

  14. Yes I have never met a more dedicated ‘real’ person such as Serge Benhayon, he is not only the real deal, but he is someone who has such a love for people, who they are, their choices and what they stand for. It is extremely inspiring seeing him present and attending courses that he runs.

  15. Today when reading this blog the line “each time he treats me as an old friend” popped out for me as that is exactly what I too feel when I meet Serge Benhayon. The feeling that we know each other already for ages, a relationship that extends beyond only this life, to many lives lived before.

  16. Great title – Serge Benhayon, the real deal! He certainly is. I love the way that when speaking to a large audience it feels like he is speaking directly to me, and I know that everyone else feels this too! This is such an inclusive and loving way to present.

    1. I totally agree with you Reagan – regardless of how large the audience size has been, I have always felt completely and totally met, as if Serge Benhayon is just talking to me and what I have always aspired to remember, reconnect to and know. It is absolutely inclusive and the real platform and shining example of how to present, teach and inspire.

  17. A beautiful sharing of your experience of Serge Benhayon and one that hundreds if not thousands could echo I am sure. I certainly felt the same when I first encountered Serge many years ago and he has failed to disappoint thus far. His presentations are invaluable and I feel blessed to be part of the Universal Medicine community.

  18. Simple and true, Serge Benhayon is the real deal and when on my very first course, I felt like I had come home – and I felt I no longer had to search, ‘out there’, to find the real me. Serge was a powerful reflection of everything we all are.

  19. I really get what you mean about feeling confident, special and valued but not more special than anyone else; it’s like when another truly is loving and holds you in that love that you are supported to feel your own worth more and equally appreciate the worth of everyone else.

  20. ‘When he rubbed words off the presentation board it was without aggression.’ It would seem to be an inconsequential movement for many if they were to present and rub words off the white board but Serge reflects back to me everything in his movement with this. I see that every movement counts, that everything is everything – nothing is lesser, or less important, that there can be purpose to every movement, that he is fully 100% present and all of who he is in all that he does, that he delivers it all with 100% love and commitment to humanity. Pretty impressive for such a seemingly inconsequential movement.
