Healing the Divide: United We Thrive

by Sheila 22. November 2016 17:49
  A reflection on our Feminine Gathering in Los Angeles     Today I gathered with more than 100 women at the Los Angeles S Factor studio to have the conversation we all needed to have.   Republican women. Democratic women. Libertarian women and women who claimed no party a... [More]

The Feminine Lost | The National Attack on the Feminine (and How We Might Recover)

by Sheila 18. November 2016 09:03
This election wasn’t about Trump or Clinton. It wasn’t about Republicans vs. Democrats or the Green Party vs. Libertarians. As much as we want it to be about those things, it wasn’t.

This election was about the past and the future. And social progress lost.

People of color lost. Muslim Americans lost. The LGBTQ community lost.

And the feminine lost. [More]

Unapologetically Sexy

by Erika Leigh Raney 1. January 2016 22:27
Tonight was the first time, probably in my whole life, that I felt deeply, serenely and unapologetically sexy. I was standing in a dimly lit room being witnessed by women, by sisters, by tribe. As I began to move, to dance, to feel the warmth of my skin and let down my hair, the entire world melted away. I fell into the music, I fell into myself, into the safest most vulnerable paradise I’ve ever known inside my sexuality. [More]

Does Your Body Naturally Give or Receive?

by Lisa Faulkner 30. November 2015 12:44
In September I danced under the full moon eclipse with friends near and far. It was magical, mystical, star-filled, red-moon-glow, beach dancing bliss.

Afterwards, those of us on Ocean Beach in San Francisco climbed the sand dune in the dark. I wore a backpack. A duffle bag hung from one shoulder. Two damp blankets and a towel were draped over my right arm. Sand clung to them like metallic flakes drawn to a magnet. [More]

Find your Voice on the Pole…

by Lindsey Mckeon 25. October 2015 14:25
Sometimes life introduces you to people that have a well of depth inside of them, they’ve connected to the place where all things spring out of and the conversation can begin there. This, if you haven’t realized, is my favorite place. I hate the surface. I love to be entrenched, swallowed whole, submerged for as long as I can withstand… Even better when I find someone that’s willing to take the dive with me. [More]

Authentic Connection: The Healing Salve for our Collective Ache

by LInda Katz 1. October 2015 14:10
I held her hands in my own and looked down at her fingers, knuckles, and nails. I gazed upon her palms and fingertips feeling the years of work that every woman carries with her. I looked into her eyes, and not knowing her story, where she comes from, or what she does for a living, I felt her in my own heart. I sensed her strength and her struggles as tears gathered in both of our eyes.
This moment was the highlight of the workshop I attended this past weekend by Sheila Kelley, the founder of S Factor. In this exercise [More]

OH YES, YES, YES!!!

by Sheila 13. August 2015 23:00
I'm in the middle of one of those bitched up sort of weeks. Call it peri-meni what-the-fuck, or PMS; these days I can't tell the difference. Call it the somnambulance of summer; call it I have a surly adolescent 14-year-old daughter skulking around at home just waiting to claw me. Call it just too much traffic, too many arguments, too many bills, too little time, too little whatever. [More]

Liberation From The Corner, How To Stop Hiding

by Patricia Buck 28. July 2015 15:21
Your body doesn’t lie. I once had a teacher say to me, “You say you want to be seen, you say you feel invisible, but you’re always dancing in corner. Get out of the corner.” What I’ve been privileged to experience through this work is a deeper knowledge of self. What an amazing gift that is. [More]

What Is Sexy to You?

by Sheila Kelley 2. July 2015 16:14
  To me a sexy life is one full of vibrancy and effervescence.  It is lush, ripe, rich, alive and titillating. It’s a life that’s highly sensual, emotional, and wholly lived. There is no potential untried, no feeling unfelt, no thought un-thought, no impulse unexplored.&n... [More]
