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.

The Friends of the Goethe Academy

[ed. - The Friends of the Goethe Academy is one of numerous 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations The Fellowship of Friends uses to improve cash flow. Presumably, it was originally intended to promote the Fellowship's private art gallery. In recent years, non-profit was registered as The Friends of the Goethe Academy dba Apollo Arts, and the business mission was restated as, 
"Our mission is to present the finest works of the classical repertoire in opera, music, theatre and dance to audiences in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California."
It is unclear if those audiences are limited to members or include the public as well.]
