Michigan couple’s spiritual love group allegedly pushed members to disappear from families, transition genders

The Twin Flames Universe organization is facing accusations that the group pressured some same-sex couples into changing their gender identity for each person to fill a masculine and feminine role in a relationship.

People who join the Twin Flames Union and pay for “ascension coaching” are promised a “harmonious union” with their so-called “Twin Flame,” referring to one’s lifelong partner, according to its website. The coaching sessions, which range from $20-200, promise participants that they “will never have to experience separation from your Twin Flame again in this lifetime or the next.”

The organization is led by Jeff and Shaleia Ayan in Michigan, who were featured in a documentary on Prime Video released in October titled, “Desperately Seeking Soulmate: Escaping Twin Flames Universe.”

According to Time, Jeff and Shaleia claim to receive directives from God and use those to ordain twin flame matches. Individuals were encouraged to cross boundaries if one flame didn’t accept the pairing.

According to Cole, her daughter hopped on a plane to Switzerland within a matter of weeks to marry Kiran, who’s a trans male.

Responding to the documentaries and other media reports, the Twin Flames Universe said in a statement on its website that the claims are distorted.

“We take seriously recent allegations implying we wield inappropriate control over our community members. After a careful review of both media coverage and recent productions, we are saddened that so much effort has gone into taking swipes at an organization and community founded on love and mutual respect,” the group said. “Twin Flames Universe not only distort our true aims, methods, and curriculums but also misrepresent the autonomy of our community members, who are free to engage with our resources as they see fit. We are committed to confronting these allegations in an open and accountable manner.
