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.

Policy for those who are behind on payments ("donations") and are given a "payment schedule" to make up for "payments in arrears" (otherwise known as a "debt to The Fellowship of Friends.")
  • Failing to adhere to the payment schedule could result in the member being asked to leave the school.
  • They would then be required to make a $2,000 payment to re-enter The Fellowship.
  • They are also forbidden to attend Fellowship of Friends meetings and functions (even those occurring in their own "teaching houses") until they are within six weeks of being "current" in their payments ("donations") to The Fellowship.
