Fire at Krotona

Krotona welcomed the month of July with its own fireworks when a car that crashed through a fence on Highway 33 caught fire. The flames quickly spread across Krotona’s lower meadow. Luckily, there were no injuries or fatalities. However, the event kept residents, as well as the fire department, on alert for a few days. Flare ups after a fire are a common concern.


Thoughts of Peace for Gaspar

Dear Krotona Family,

We lost one of our own recently. Gaspar Torres passed away peacefully in the middle of the night and was found in the morning with an angelic expression on his face. May he be carried on angel wings in the next phase of his journey to the higher life. We send thoughts of love and peace during this special period of his transition.

Gaspar was an active member of the Theosophical Society (Adyar) since March 1957, and a former National President of the TS in Cuba. Since 2011, Gaspar had been a resident of the Krotona Institute, leading study groups and teaching for its School of Theosophy, while also presenting internationally. He had served as a bishop in the Liberal Catholic Church for 40 years. He will be missed.

The Pillars of Krotona

Visitors to Krotona are greeted by two pillars at the bottom of the hill, adorned with initials: APW and MP. Informed Theosophists and friends will know the letters stand for Albert Powell Warrington and Marie Poutz, two names that supremely stand out in the founding and history of Krotona.
