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.

Another church bake sale?

[ed. - As has been suggested previously, the Fellowship's insurance company's refusal to insure the "church" as long as Robert Burton had access to the "till", led to a resurgence of fee-based teaching and special events (above and beyond all required membership "donations"), the funds from which were allegedly used to augment the pastor's meager $250k salary.]

September 1st to September 5th Mini Journey Forth
Celebrating our Teacher’s 44th Anniversary of Meeting Influence C
Dear Friends,
After a beautiful Ballet Festival, Robert would like to announce the revival of the Theatron. The building permit has just been renewed, and a French 18th century carved limestone wall is being reassembled as a new charming entry to the Theatron. It will be dedicated at the opening of the upcoming Mini Journey Forth.
The Teacher suggested the name of this venue be the “Da Vinci Theatron”.
In order to make this extraordinary project come into being, the Teacher is encouraging students to support it. Our donations to the forty-fourth anniversary gift of Meeting Influence C will be directed towards the Theatron revival, as will the proceeds from the upcoming Mini Journey Forth. Please follow the donation instructions bellow.
As this project develops, we will keep you constantly updated.
“As we enter the fifth decade of working with Influence C in our school, the age of miracles is upon us.” - Robert E. Burton
In presence,
Friends from Journey Forth
