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.

January 1977 Notes

Lord Pentland [Henry John Sinclair, 2nd Baron Pentland] of The Gurdjieff Foundation visited Robert Burton at Mount Carmel.

[ed. - Exact date is unknown. Lord Pentland, accompanied by Jacob Needleman, came seeking contributions for the production of a new film based upon Gurdjieff's book, Meetings With Remarkable Men. It is reported that instead of money, Burton presented Pentland with a fancy embroidered pillow, an inside joke alluding to Pentland being a "sleeping machine," not an awakened, conscious being like Burton.]
