LET’S TALK MENOPAUSE featured:
MC Mandy Nolan, comedian, speaker, author, journalist and committed feminist – just to name a few of the amazing capabilities of this true renaissance woman. Mandy is on her own Menopause Journey.

She has a special interest in women’s health and is committed to bringing better health and wellbeing outcomes to women. Michelle also created her own brand of super potent skincare ‘PLUMPED’.
Muriele Tesauri, founder of Moonstuff and Wholesome Lives, is passionate about women’s rites of passage and women’s circles. She has an Advanced Diploma in Health Science and brings her wisdom on herbal remedies and food to support healthy transitions. Muriele believes that women are nowadays medicalised instead of being honoured in their new phase of life. She will talk about how women can prepare themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually rather than just mentally for menopause, as this would really feel like a natural and important rite of passage.
Proceeds will go towards the Feel Good Fridays project – a weekly opportunity for disadvantaged women to access support and relax.
