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.

Human Types - Essence and the Enneagram

Human Types, by Fellowship of Friends member Susan Zannos, is published. It presents a human classification system based upon the enneagram, a symbol representing the planetary influences acting upon the human endocrine system, and the concept of "four centers." Adapted from the work of Gurdjieff and embellished by Burton and his followers, from the early 1970s this system was presented to prospective members during introductory meetings.

(Center directors would later be advised to stop suggesting that entire nations exhibit the characteristics of a particular "body type.")
