Doing check up on my life!!

It is nearly a year ago, that I made the decision to give up my apartment in downtown Toronto and give some of my furniture to friends in return for place to hang my hat when I return from travel. Am I sorry? Absolutely not, it is not always easy, but always interesting, my new family has adopted me and are very loving and respectful. It is always nice to return to my own bed and bedroom with some of my art. People ask me how I feel, well, I am 71 years old, have outlived my parents and consider myself to be very lucky to be able to do what I am doing. What I give up, some relationships, because I am not here! I feel in many ways I have fallen off the grid with anything normal, and as an old friend said to me last week, he doesn’t know anyone who is doing what I am doing! Where it will end, I have no idea. I feel sometimes that my relationship with Canada is coming to an end, but what that really means I have no idea at this point.

Betty’s Mountain Top, the concept on my blog is upmost to research on my next trip and I am starting to put together International group of Honorary Advisers to help me.

On September 25th I leave for Penang Malaysia, then on to Mynamar (the old Burma), then India, where I hope to see Dadi Janki, Mauritius, Australia, Tasmania, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, then I will be returning at the end of February in time for my granddaughter’s Megan’s Bat Mitvah. This will be a heavy-duty trip, time and mile wise, and it has been much more complicated to organize than Europe last year, we will see if this old body will cope! I have rented apartment in Penang and Maurtius with a pool. In Mynamar, I have no idea where I am staying but I will be looked after. In Australia, I will be staying with friends, and I will be spending Christmas and New Year’s with friends in Tasmania, apparently I am told I will be hosting a New Year’s party, because the house I am renting is on the sea and has fireworks at midnight. What is next after February 2015? I have no idea, but for some reason, I am not worried at all!!

Everyone, please keep in touch, be safe and healthy.


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.

    Dear Betty,

    I have great admiration for your choice in lifestyle. When, if, I make it to 70 I really hope I will flitting around the world like you!!

    Its been really bust here. I have moved to my little apartment near the beach, will be sharing my studio after deconstructing it for living in. Have to do a few things to my other house and put it on the market very soon. I am working on my Masters proposal part of which will be travelling to Mogoa Grottoes in China sometime next year.

    I have just finished some new paintings and there is a big event at the local art hotel for their 10th anniversary including their ten top artists.

    It sound alike you have found a great place to stay in Tassie thats fab. A friend of mine has just returned from an art residency in Penang and had a fantastic time, intact it has its own pace and time. Very exciting times ahead for you.

    Best wishes

    I can feel the adventure in your writing, Betty. It makes me want to hop on a plane and come see you for New Year’s in Tasmania. In addition to taking photos I am selfishly requesting you get yourself a little video camera and post the visuals on your blog. You sound like you are having the time of your life and very well might be starting a trend for the rest of us to follow. Peace and safe travels! Love you!!!! Looking forward to more on Betty’s Mountain – make a documentary.
