Introduction


Presented in reverse chronology, this history stretches from the present back to the Fellowship's 1970 founding, and beyond.
(See "Blog Archive" in the sidebar below.) It draws from many sources, including The Fellowship of Friends - Living Presence Discussion, the Internet Archive, the former Fellowship of Friends wiki project, cult education and awareness sites, news archives, and from the editor's own 13-year experience in the Fellowship.

The portrait that emerges stands in stark contrast to sanitized versions presented on the Fellowship's array of
alluring websites, and on derivative sites created by Burton's now-estranged
disciple, Asaf Braverman.

June 1975 Notes

June 4:
The “leg crossing exercise” announced. (We’re to avoid crossing our legs – even such as tucking them under chairs, with ankles crossed.)
June 9:
A house adjacent to the original property has just been purchased, and is being cleaned out. [This will be called the “Blake Cottage,” and serve as Burton's residence. Eventually, the "Goethe Academy" will supplant the small house.]
June 10:
Donald McDonald left the Fellowship of Friends today. This was an incredible shock, as he was seen as “the rock”! Robert was clearly saddened and had difficulty presenting this news. [Donald was one of those Burton claimed were evolving "Men Number 5," one of the "conscious beings" his school was fated to produce.]
