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.

Missing from The New York Times

Fellowship of Friends Apollo Auction Oregon House, CA celebrating Robert Earl Burton's crystallization
2004 Apollo Auction on the anniversary of Robert Earl Burton's "crystallization",
from the "FOF History Project"

"somebody" wrote on the Fellowship of Friends Discussion blog:
An e-mail from a Council [member]:
In celebration of Robert’s thirty-second anniversary of his crystallization, we offer the following toast:
Thirty-two years ago the greatest miracle in the Universe occurred; it is the same miraculous gift of presence and immortality that the Absolute possesses, and which we all share.
Let us toast to Robert’s crystallization: a gift that will keep giving, and a blessing that will keep blessing.
With all our Love, now and forever.
[ed. - For more on the miraculous event, see this post from 1976.]
