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.

February 1976 Notes

February 3:
An exercise is relaxed: it is now permissible to cross one’s legs – in the hours between 11:00 p.m. and dawn!
February 5:
The Case backhoe is traded in for a new Ford tractor
February 7:
Clearing of rocks from our first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard slope. The work was done by hand, chucking rocks into tractor buckets and onto flatbed trucks.
February 27:
The Fellowship acquired the “Hobbs Property” [This will be called “The Whitman Glen,” with its old rustic dwelling, apparently the future site of the "La Cucina Bistro."]
