Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!

Happy New Year! from a very cold, but sunny Toronto. I arrived back on December 22nd to the worst ice storm in 100 years: the power was out all over the place and 8 days later some homes still do not have power.

The family that has adopted me are wonderful, and have fitted out a room in their home with my furniture, clothes and art. I feel very lucky! The rest of my stuff is in storage, at another home  so I can get to it whenever I need to find stuff, which after 4 months away is great fun to discover. It’s been great to see my family and especially the grand kids and to catch up with my friends.

My plan is to go back to Palma in about a month, again to use it as base to travel to parts of Europe. I am hoping to go to Sweden, Greece, and England then Iceland in April for the Spirit of Humanity Forum and be back in Canada, sometime in June. But at this point nothing is carved in stone, the planning starts next week!

I have made promise to a number of people that I will try to examine what being a Nomadic Intern really feels like, so will report very soon.

In the meantime to all of my friends all over the world, I wish you the very best for 2014!!!

Please keep sending your news and look at my Blog www.thenomadicintern.com for those who are comfortable with this form of communication, but I will continue with my emails as well.
Enjoy the New Year

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.
