Busy Cambridge!

I have been in Cambridge for 2 weeks, and I just saw the sun for the first time yesterday, typical UK weather! I love Cambridge; it’s a city of 130,000 people, and very easy to get around, I am good on the number 2 bus! I am staying with the BK family, in a lovely home, close to the city centre. I am attending programs, meetings etc., and spending time with Prashant (very wise, always learn from him) also my friend Sarah, (she always looks after me)! I gave a public talk on Forgiving and Forgetting in life, again as I did in the spring, overlooking King’s College.

As you know I had wanted to find place to stay and spend year in the UK, but didn’t know if I could find something that I could afford, it’s very expensive, everything costs double here! I got very lucky one day, I was at movies having a chat with a young woman, and told her what I was looking for, so she connected me to her friend named Sarah. Sarah has a lovely Victorian terrace home on a lovely street, close to the river, within walking distance of the city centre. I will be her tenant, with a bedroom and an en-suite bathroom in her home, and the price is very fair, I am very, very lucky!! Sarah is a retired educator and I will move here for one year, starting April 15th 2016.

I will be buying a bike, I went on a 10-mile cycle‎ with a friend and survived, bikes are part of culture here! The energy in Cambridge is very busy and good, because there are students here from all over the world.

Graduation Day, Cambridge!!

When I was here 2 years ago, I posted a blog about this wonderful young man, named Peter, who took me around Cambridge for my birthday; he had keys for all of the doors. I was very taken with him, he was 22, very ill, at the time, and he really understood the meaning of life, I nicknamed him, The Oracle! He moved to Devon, but arrived in Cambridge for few days. I was thrilled to see him, he seems to be much better, healthy, eating; he has gained weight, and still deserves the name, The Oracle.

I am writing from this London where I am staying for a couple of days to get my London fix. To see my dear friend Briony, and to attend her launch of Ambit, an excellent Literary Magazine, ‎and also to have dinner with some wonderful friends from Canada, Prue and Bruce! Bruce is Board Member of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Compass Rose Society; they do charity work around the world. Of course I did a little shopping at Uniglo, my favourite store in the world, Toronto will be getting one next year.

Next stop Kuwait!!!

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.

    How lucky to find a place to stay. I am staying with my youngest daughter Andy who had an emergency C section 3 days ago. She and baby are fine but she has a 2 yr old as well so needs my help. I’m thinking about 5 weeks, then we are going to our other daughter’s ski chalet on Vancouver island for Christmas and staying 2 weeks. Rich is holding down the fort at home. I feel like a nomad too!

  2. Betty! You always land on your feet. Sounds wonderful. Still hopw to meet up with you in Penang and in California in March. Enjoy!xxx

    Betty, I share the same love of Kings Colledge Cambridge as you do, especially the music of the choir.

  4. Hi Betty,
    Sounds like you are having the time of your life! Miss you. Give Briony a big hug for me when you see her. Safe travels. xoxoxo
