Medieval World  Google image from http://images.macmillan.com/folio-assets/macmillan_us_frontbookcovers_1000H/9780753460467.jpg

Monday, January 9, 2017 - 3:00 - 4:00 pm

Knights, damsels, jousts, castles! All of these are exciting but there is a more fascinating aspect of the medieval age - everyday medieval life around the world!

Lianne Harris delivers a fun, enlightening and interactive presentation that reveals some of the lesser known but curious elements of the medieval time period not only in Europe but in China, Mongolia, India, the Middle East, and Africa. What did these cultures exchange with Europe, and how did those encounters change the world? Why do we say the things we say, and do the things we do, 1000 years later?

For this presentation, Lianne Harris dons a royal 13th century French-Burgundian costume. A full array of medieval paraphernalia allows the participants to see, smell, and touch the middle ages!

Space is limited, so please call Hillary to RSVP at 905-566-4500 or email: Hillary.Stacey@vivalife.ca

While our footprints of love and compassion continue to spread throughout the communities, we are thankful for all of the members and volunteers who ceaselessly support the Tzu Chi Foundation."

The Chinese New Year Blessing Ceremony will be held by GTA Tzu Chi volunteers and you are cordially invited to witness the contributions made by Tzu Chi volunteers across the world in 2016.

"Let us pray together that in this brand new year, may peace and comfort be brought to all families, and may there be no disasters or hardships in the world."

Info from Tzu Chi Foundation Missions:

"In 1966, Dharma Master Cheng Yen established the Tzu Chi Foundation in Hualien (Taiwan). With the spirit of self-discipline, diligence, frugality, and perseverance, Tzu Chi set out to help the poor and relieve suffering.

Tzu Chi ... expanded to all five major continents of the world with chapters and offices in 47 countries. Tzu Chi provides aid to over 69 nations.

The shared goal of Tzu Chi volunteers is to cultivate sincerity, integrity, faith, and honesty within while exercising kindness, compassion, joy, and selflessness to humanity through concrete actions. Transcending the bounds of race, nationality, language, and religion, they serve the world under the notion that 'when others are hurting, we feel their pain; when others suffer, we feel their sorrow'.

Tzu Chi Foundation's 'Four Major Missions' consist of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanity. Furthermore, considering ongoing efforts in Bone Marrow Donation, Environmental Protection, Community Volunteerism, and International Relief, these eight concurrent campaigns are collectively known as 'Tzu Chi's Eight footprints'."
