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.

Sexing up the recruitment campaign

[ed. - On June 26, 2010, the Internet Archive captured the video "What is the Value of Presence" on The Fellowship of Friends Living Presence website. It features (now deceased) Frances Thompson, who had long been the Fellowship's past-due donations enforcer.

In January 2011, a markedly more youthful, dare I say, sexier version appeared (below), featuring the sage wisdom of Steven Dambeck (of Apollo Olive Oil, North Yuba Grown, and Yuba Harvest fame) and Benjamin Yudin (author of the Mysticism website.) Internet Archive capture.]
