The Guest Week Program



     The Stelle Group has initiated a program for persons interested in the community of Stelle and its role in the Great Plan of the Brother-hoods. The new program is called Guest Week. During Guest Week you may visit the community of Stelle for one full week as a participant-observer of the affairs of the community. The first Guest Week is scheduled for July 2-8. The next one planned for this year is September 3-9.

     The purpose of Guest Week is to enable those persons who are seriously considering membership in The Stelle Group to become better acquainted with life at Stelle—with the people who are committed to the furthering of the Great Plan, with the philosophy upon which the community is founded, and with Richard Kieninger, the author of The Ultimate Frontier and founder of the community.

     Different activities are planned for you during Guest Week. Seminars on various aspects of the philosophy will be conducted. There will be work sessions with members of The Stelle Group on various projects. Mothers will work with their young children in the Learning Centers. You will participate in any community

events that may be occurring. You will stay in the homes of members of The Stelle Group.

      Some readers of The Ultimate Frontier develop an exaggerated view of the requirements for becoming a member of The Stelle Group. Your participation in Guest Week will enable you to experience the sense of community created thus far and to decide whether you desire to share in it with us. If you are considering applying for membership in The Stelle Group, and would like to have your interview with the Membership Committee during Guest Week, you may submit your application along with your reservation for Guest Week. If you have a family and are applying for membership, please be sure that your entire family is present for the interview.

     Costs for Guest Week include your room and board and are as follows:

     One Person            $200.00

     One Couple            $350.00

     Each Child              $ 25.00


     If you are interested in attending the Guest Week, please fill out the application on page 5.
