Spirit of Humanity Forum – Iceland

London, Brancaster Staithe in Norfolk by the North Sea and Reykjavik Iceland to attend the Spirit of Humanity Forum, of which I am a member of the Advisory Board. The Forum is a global network of organizations and individuals committed to effect change in Governance and decision makers based on core human values. This is an amazing forum where such a cross section of people attended, Corporate, Social services, Government, Non-profit all at very senior level (over 200). The event was by invitation only by the planning group from around the World.

This was the second forum and our dream that it becomes ongoing is a lot closer, it was highly successful!! If you are interested visit the web site http://www.sohforum.org (the guest list is on site). The City of Reykjavik was very supportive and has played a major role in this event. The Mayor and President of Iceland both hosted events for delegates. Iceland is as beautiful as ever and is quite expensive to visit, but worth it! And if you go, please make a side trip to Greenland, another special place on the planet.

Beautiful Iceland!!

Next, I went to London for a day and then on the train to Briony and Simon’s by the North Sea. In their beautifully restored home which they have spent the last year doing; there is a very large walled flower garden and separate walled vegetable and herb garden. I felt like I was living in an 18th century movie, very gracious and comfortable. Eddy, the gardener, has worked for 5 families that have owned this home and is over sixty. He started his role here when he was 15. This lovely man was also a relief Butler for the Queen when she was at Sandringham, which happens to be down the road. I enjoyed this Gentleman’s stories! Of course we had to visit local pub! Also Kate and William are moving down the road (I think a summer home).

My new home (only kidding) Briony and Simon’s lovely home on North Sea (UK).

I left London for Athens with one large suitcase and a carry on. A friend had taken a suitcase back to Toronto for me from Iceland (which was great). I was flying Aegean Airlines and arrived to find out that no free luggage was allowed, you had to pay for all luggage (my travel agent is now dealing with this). It costs about 200 dollars and to top it all off, you had to pay cash. The web site gave totally different information!! And I wasn’t happy. I am on the last leg of this part of my journey and have been healthy and happy. Oh, I also met with couple that own 67 nursing homes in UK and they have agreed to advise me on my latest idea — Betty’s Mountain Top — more on my next blog, when I report on Greece.

Windswept!! – North Sea

One comment on Athens, I am here over the Easter weekend. On Good Friday, the stores were open but every so often bells would ring. They marked the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. It really effected the people walking around (they were in mourning) and on Saturday everyone goes to Church at 11:30pm for 2 hours. After church they go home and start cooking for the family which is usually Lamb on a spit. Fireworks go off at night all over the city, I was with a friend seeing Athens by night, high on hill and it was all very powerful!!!

 

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.

    Purchasing a new or used auto might be a hard method if you do not know what you will be carrying out. By teaching yourself about vehicle purchasing before you head to the dealer, you may make stuff easier for yourself. The following advice may help your next purchasing trip be a little more satisfying.

Whenever you can not obtain a technician to look at vehicles with you, at least make certain you have him take a look at closing option before you purchase it.

    Know your boundaries. Prior to starting buying for your next automobile or van, decide how much you can manage to shell out, and adhere to it. Don’t neglect to add curiosity about your computations. You will definitely pay close to 20 % as a down payment too, so be well prepared.

    Before visiting a car dealership, know what sort of automobile you need. Investigation all of you choices prior to buying so you can determine what works the best for your finances and family members needs. Do your research to learn simply how much you need to be paying for any potential automobile.

    Before signing any deal spend some time to read through every range, like the small print. When there is anything listed you do not fully grasp, do not indication until you purchase an solution that you fully grasp. Unsavory salesmen may use an agreement to put in many service fees which were not talked about.

    In the event you keep your preceding suggestions at heart the next time that you just go looking for a automobile, you will certainly be very likely to get a full bargain. Buying a vehicle lacks as a head ache. Only use the information from this article and you could have the car you want at a good selling price.

    May I simply say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they’re discussing on the web.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people have to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you definitely have
    the gift.
