Next Adventure!!

“Dream with a Deadline.

Turn your dream into a vision, then into a goal, then into a plan and then into reality! After all, a goal is nothing more than a ‘dream with a deadline’.”

I have spent the last 6 weeks back in Toronto with my adopted family, seeing family and friends, catching up on the Federal Election, city news, doctors’ appointments, and doing paperwork, so I can travel again.

I must admit this travel bug isn’t out of my system yet, so as I said, Columbia, South America, is first stop and I will just play tourist. Then, 2 days of travel to get to Sarajevo, where I will join the BK’s from Croatia to do a program together. Next stop, Cambridge, to hopefully find a place to hang my hat in 2016. Then to, Kuwait for a few days. After that, I’m off to India for 2 weeks in Mt. Abu, which is the headquarters for the Brahma Kumaris, joining people from all over the world to celebrate Dadi Janki’s 100th Birthday. While I’m there I’ll be enjoying the surroundings and meditation programs, plus reconnecting with friends at the hospital and local community. Southern India, with palm trees, the Indian Ocean, great food, and lots of space, is the next stop, where I will travel with buddies for 2 week. My last stop is Bali for one month, how it will all unfold, I have no idea. Oh, I forgot Dubai, which is always exciting, plus I will see a young woman, who is working there, I met in Toronto a number of years ago. The last time we met she came to my book launch in New Delhi, India.

I must admit, I am concerned about Canada, the economy, with the house prices in Toronto and Vancouver being out of reach for everyone, but the rich! The decrease of the middle class, the state of the roads and transportation services, and young people are having very rough time finding jobs to match their education and training they have received! Plus the decrease in mental health services, which means more funding, the need is still there, and growing, big time. Hopefully I am wrong and picture is brighter than I am saying!

So on to my LEAST favourite job, PACKING!

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.
