Robert Earl Burton founded The Fellowship of Friends in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1970. Burton modeled his own group after that of Alex Horn, loosely borrowing from the Fourth Way teachings of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky. In recent years, the Fellowship has cast its net more broadly, embracing any spiritual tradition that includes (or can be interpreted to include) the notion of "presence."

The Fellowship of Friends exhibits the hallmarks of a "doomsday religious cult," wherein Burton exercises absolute authority, and demands loyalty and obedience. He warns that his is the only path to consciousness and eternal life. Invoking his gift of prophecy, he has over the years prepared his flock for great calamities (e.g. a depression in 1984, the fall of California in 1998, nuclear holocaust in 2006, and most recently the October 2018 "Fall of California Redux.")

But according to Burton, Armageddon still looms in our future and when it finally arrives, non-believers shall perish, while through the direct intervention and guidance from 44 angels (recently expanded to 81 angels, including himself and his divine father, Leonardo da Vinci) Burton and his followers shall be spared, founding a new, and more perfect civilization.

Awakening: Quotations from Robert Earl Burton

Fellowship of Friends cult founder Robert Earl Burton (R. E. Burton) quotations
[ed. - The latest sifting through Burton's endless supply of aphorisms. The following is from Amazon. Unsurprisingly, the reviews are divided between five-star by long-term current members (e.g. Blue Logician, Benjamin Yudin, Gerald, and Hugh James - only one of whom is a confirmed purchaser) and one-star, clearly from former members. However, one of these contingents understands what it means to escape a cult, and that is indeed an awakening in its own right.]
