A Great Teacher and Human Being

Brahma Kumar Brother Anthony Strano,

Anthony Strano

Anthony Strano

Passed away suddenly in Brazil last week of a massive heart attack. I was very honoured, blessed and privileged to have spent 2 months in Athens (May and June) where I had a flat very close to Anthony’s. He held class every morning, which I attended when we were both in town. He was one of the best Spiritual teachers I have ever met. Some of the comments I would make about Anthony is that he was very practical, he had a lot of clarity, common sense, a sense of reality, humorous, knowledgeable about the real world, caring, considerate, aware and respectful of where each person was at in their lives. He was a history buff, and also lived in and visited many countries and he always made point of understanding culture and how it all fit together, wherever he was. I am very sad he was taken so early; so many people around the world will miss him! Although his presence will continue to be felt through his books, CD’s and his spiritual work!! This was very difficult to write, because no words can do Anthony justice!! Anthony, Thank you for being my friend and in my life! OM SHANTI (peaceful soul)

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.
