Lisbon Portugal!

Hot, sunny, nice, lovely people, safe, inexpensive, and tourists are flocking to this city and helping the economy big time.

I should also say it is a very stylist city in many areas with beautiful fashion; but they don’t have a Uniglo store yet! Malls have shoe areas, jewelry etc. It really helps with competing prices!

I stayed at the BK centre in the heart of Lisbon for 5 days.  It is a very grand old Government mansion. They had acquired it in a very unique fashion and the furniture came from hotel that had closed down. They have the best of the best. I gave a public talk to over 100 people, with translation of course, on my experience of life, compassion and forgiveness. There were lots of good questions, that made me think.

Lisbon reminded me of Mallorca Spain. The streets, sites, communities, it has a very gentle feeling!! The Portuguese are very hard working, enjoy life, and they seem to have found balance. Lots of festivals and public holidays in June. I went to buy flowers for the centre at the market and for 18 euros I bought 3 large bunches of fresh flowers. The lady arranged them all and tied them with a beautiful lace ribbon; couldn’t do that in the UK or Canada!

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.
