Danièle Cybulskie has been making the Middle Ages fun, entertaining, and accessible for over a decade. She is the author of four books and hundreds of articles on medieval history. The creator and host of The Medieval Podcast, Danièle brings expertise and a sense of humour to the airwaves to dispel common myths about the medieval period and enrich our understanding about the people of the past. In 2020, Danièle built The Medieval Masterclass for Creators, an online course designed to provide novelists, game developers, and other fiction creators with expert information in a visual format to help them bring their medieval worlds to life. She continues to offer her expertise to creators through one-on-one consulting.
Her latest book, How to Live Like a Monk: Medieval Wisdom for Modern Life tells us how medieval monastic practices, with their emphasis on a healthy mind, soul and body, can inspire us to live fuller lives. Though monastic living may seem unimaginable to us moderns, it has relevance for today. Danièle illuminates the day-to-day of medieval European monasticism, showing how you can apply the principles of monastic living, like finding balance and peace to your life. Join Danièle with Humphrey Hawksley to talk about our inner health, Medieval life and Danièle’s own approach to handling the pressures and bustle of modern life. Goldster Inside Story, Thursday April 20th at the special time of 6pm.
