Wise Women Panel on Sex and Aging Part One
Awakening, Accepting, Rejoicing
(Season 2 | Episode 86)
[Tessa] Our fifth entry in this Sensuality, Sexuality and Aging Month on The Open Nesters Podcast.
This is our first-ever panel. We have collected four brilliant women to discuss sexuality, sensuality, and aging. I am so pleased to bring this group of thinkers on sex and sensuality to you in this episode. And get ready for part two of our panel next week.
Yarel Silverio Marshall is an independent consultant with more than twenty years of experience promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within her personal and professional environments. She has two philosophies. First, is to help create positive and inclusive environments for the betterment of all stakeholders. Second, is to create spaces and dialogues that do not normally exist within our everyday communication. Yarel specializes in relationship building and educating through collaboration and resource sharing. She creates safe spaces where she sees a need. Thus, her social media platform is based on “Ya in her journey.”

Laurie Handlers, author of International Bestseller Sex & Happiness: The Tantric Laws of Intimacy teaches people ways to increase pleasure and return to love with themselves and their partners. As a speaker and facilitator, Laurie has taught transformational workshops since 1978 on topics ranging from releasing past emotional trauma, stopping the aging process, and Tantra (expansion through awareness) impacting tens of thousands of lives.
