From Gstaad to Glasgow, with Palma in between.

It is a Sunday afternoon when I write this. I am sitting in a pub having a little champagne and tapas. It’s been a busy couple of weeks.

I went to Switzerland for the Spirit of Humanity meeting, staying at a magnificent chalet. It was owned by a member of our group and was like a 5 star hotel! At one point I was fooling around with what I thought was the heating controls and a TV appeared out of the floor!

Train ride!

The meeting was in Gstaad where the rich and famous love to ski: Royalty, Julie Andrews, even Roger Moore. It was like being in a living picture postcard. Sun, snow and mountains, quite stunning.

My other excitement was my decision to rent a flat to come back here in February. Mallorca is such a great base to travel around Europe from: very cheap flights, AND I’ve found a lovely place near to the castle! I’ve agreed to buy linens, which I understand is normal, but just as well that I looked inside the kitchen cabinets as there wasn’t much in there either. But as you know the kitchen and I have never been the best of friends! I am enjoying Mallorca: meeting interesting people, I even took Spanish lessons for a week: sadly not my talent.

 My afternoon at the pub ended with me being asked to join the next table and meeting the architect of the building, but that’s Mallorca! Now I am on my way to Glasgow in Scotland for a week to see friends.

Please write and send me your news, everywhere I go people are asking me about our Mayor, what a classy guy. 

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.
