Before and After the Universal Medicine Lennox Head Retreat

My name is Paul, I am 45 years old. I am a father and have been a postie for the last 11 years. I own my home in Northern NSW and currently I still like a beer, pizza, watching sport on TV, coffee etc. In the last 3 months I started dating an esoteric student who invited me to do the 2017 Universal Medicine Retreat in Lennox Head with her.

Prior to the retreat I was nervous, unsure what was ahead. I had been to a couple of Universal Medicine events and heard stories of people’s transformation – especially my girlfriend Rosie’s past to where she is at now – but wasn’t really sure what the retreat would be like.

On arrival I felt the love between the people that knew each other, big warm hugs going down everywhere I looked. I felt comfortable and I sat down and was open to learning more.

To be honest I struggled for the first two days . . . no caffeine, chocolate, dairy or gluten to keep me going. A bit of a challenge from my normal ways of living. Sitting in the seat my eyes kept closing on me. I definitely struggled but I loved what was presented: all related to why I was struggling in the first place!

I loved what Serge Benhayon shared, especially about the stars and the universe and energy. I became aware of how all of what I have been eating and drinking was suppressing me and making me check out from life and from being the true essence of who I really am.

On the third day I really didn’t want to get up. I needed that coffee hit. I just wanted to stay in bed and be comfortable but I didn’t give up. I started seeing chocolate on all the tables around me, even though there was no chocolate! My mind was playing tricks on me but during the day I managed a beach walk and sleep to recharge, and by the end of it I was feeling clearer and loved opening up more to what was on offer.

The Esoteric Yoga complemented the work so well. I could get back into my body; such a simple exercise but so powerful that anyone, any size can do it. I felt so connected and clear afterwards.

It was lovely to meet some new people, and be supported with the right foods to keep me on track for the week.

Serge Benhayon and Natalie Benhayon are truly inspirational people and I am glad I made the decision to do the Universal Medicine Retreat and I know that this is really just the beginning.

I realise this journey comes from within and feel grateful I have been given the proper tools to be the true divine person I was at birth.

  1. Hi Paul, I always enjoy reading this, and had a giggle about you seeing chocolate everywhere! Universal Medicine retreats are very simple, they are life changing and the environment is one of love and brotherhood (to the best of our ability) amongst the students. I’ve been attending Universal Medicine retreats annually since 2013 and I find they provide a wonderful new foundation each year for me to live from, they bring such a richness and depth to life that I never want to miss one.

  2. That openness to hearing or being present within something that is not currently the mainstream is a great start to questioning and changing life. Especially when that ‘not mainstream’ is a completely different energetic stream.

  3. A Universal Medicine 5 day Retreat can be quite challenging but I love that you stuck with it, going cold turkey on caffeine gluten, dairy, and chocolate is not easy but as you have shown it is well worth it for you get to feel what it is like to have a clear mind and body and the lightness and joy that this brings.

  4. The retreats and courses from Universal Medicine are profound in terms of what takes place… understanding of life is quadrupled and deepened with each event, not to mention how my physical body feels in terms of being open, vital and joyful.

  5. The struggle you felt Paul going without gluten, dairy and caffeine on the retreat, is something many will relate to. In daily living we’re presented with the same energetic choices – ones that hold and support us and those that do not. This is a constant, each movement builds on the next for expansion or stagnation.

  6. Paul what a pleasure to read about your experience of the Lennox Head retreat, in particular that you were seeing chocolates everywhere and the mind playing tricks. You discerned this and tuned into your body which was just awesome as we constantly ignore those or any signals it communicates.

  7. So true about the important role that the food plays in supporting us during the retreat. We are not completely without our own responsibility to discern what to eat and how much to eat, but still it gives us a great blueprint on how we could support ourselves if the energy/vibration we get presented in is what we would like to have as our everyday life and not just reserved for the retreat.

  8. Love your shared experience of your first Universal Medicine retreat Paul. In reading this I could feel how in our openness to being honest with ourselves and to exploring the truth we have greater awareness to a quality within that allows us to feel the truth of who we are and how to support ourselves to live who we naturally are.

  9. Very gorgeous to feel you express from the honesty of your body Paul. It is very refreshing to feel someone talk this way. Just you sharing this alone in they way you did allows another the space to feel and be in the honesty of their body also.
