Sanctuary of Connections

Krotona Institute’s Sanctuary of Connections provides a quiet place where those of diverse or no faith can walk the links connecting each tradition.


The labyrinth at the Krotona Institute of Theosophy is a meandering pattern of the seven-circuit Cretan type, with its path delineated by stones.


There are a number of comfortable apartments with kitchens available for students and faculty, and a guesthouse for those who want to stay on a personal retreat.
