Explore Your Innate Feminine Essence
Every woman has an inner truth to her sexy, passionate nature – it’s the body that you bring to love, and the body you love with! This essence is at the core of how you move through the world and ask for what you want. It’s how you authentically love and desire to be loved. It’s how you play, how you storm, and how you keep your boundaries. At live events you’ll have the chance to meet this powerful creature within you and explore the emotional energies of the 10 S Factor Erotic Creature Icons in your own body. Your body is a brilliantly intuitive oracle. Come learn how to tap into that potent wisdom.
At this destination event you will be fully immersed in three days of movement discovery, workshops, and more:
- Arrive Thursday afternoon to check in, register and unwind from everyday life
- Immerse yourself in morning-to-evening sessions of movement, deep exploration and play
- Get feedback and body reading from Sheila and the S Teachers in real time
- Learn how to apply the richness of an embodiment practice to your everyday life and relationships
- Depart after a closing campfire ritual on Sunday evening
- Gatherings are rich experiences designed to disrupt your unconscious everyday habits and ground you back into the senses and intuition of the feminine body. Programming extends from morning into the evenings, with breaks for meals.
For New S Women…
Discovering the nature of your Erotic Creature is like unlocking the gates to the possibility of absolute bliss, total embodiment, and full feminine freedom. It is a relearning of ancient wisdom you hold within.
For Experienced S Women…
This journey takes you over the plateaus and through the deep valleys of where we get stuck in our everyday lives, relationships and intimate experiences in order to revel once again in a body more free and expressive than you could ever have imagined..
If you’re ready to evoke an undeniable inner beauty, The S Gathering awaits you.
At this event, you will dive deep into the complex inner-workings of your authentic essence, and unfurl your unique ways of channeling that expression through movement.
S Factor live events open an embodied, experiential pathway toward reclaiming your feminine body and all of her sensuous stories. This is not heady spiritual awakening, this is sensual and soulful exploration that leads to new ways of being in your body, rippling out into a new way of being in the world.
Together we create a space of sisterhood, connection and respect. A place where you can be as emotionally expressive as you want to be. Our ballrooms are warmly lit, our meals are nourishing and the women gathered with you are pure magic from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Come saunter into your own Pleasure Hunt with us.
“Unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before or since…”
Sheila’s teachings are sought after by women all over the globe who travel thousands of miles to be seen and guided into an epic, body-led life. She is a regular guest presenter at Tony Robbins Platinum retreats, Mindvalley, and Mama Gena Mastery events, among others.
The S Gathering FAQ
Q: Where is the event?
A: S Gatherings are held at destination hotels and resorts around the world. Usually they are in the United States at four star hotels, close to a major or regional airport. This event will take place in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area at a beautiful non-casino, non-smoking resort hotel (off the strip) that is about 20 – 25 minutes from the Las Vegas International Airport, which provides regular, affordable service to most major and regional airports worldwide. Exact hotel information and room reservation links will be emailed after registration and may also be accessed in your online student area once they become available.
Q: Who can attend?
A: All backgrounds, physical ability and experience levels. You do not need to have any movement or dance experience. Most events are ages 18+.
Q: Where should I stay?
A: Group hotel rates are secured for our attendees on site at the event location. You will be responsible for booking and paying for your hotel room, including incidentals. We recommend arriving on or before May 18 (programming begins in the later evening on Thursday May 18), and leaving in the evening on Sunday, or the day after to give yourself time for integration and connecting with other women. We highly recommend that you stay on site since our schedules are booked morning to night and commuting would mean less time to rest and nowhere to go in the middle of the day for a break.
Our reduced group rates for this event are roughly $219 per night for a standard room, and a reduced $20 resort fee, and once you register you can access the community board to find a roommate to share costs, if desired.
Q: What’s the Schedule?
A: While we like to keep some surprises up our sleeve, please note that your days will be packed full of excitement from morning to night. We will begin Thursday evening, May 18, with an Opening Campfire, so please try to arrive and check in by 5pm. Friday and Saturday may have scheduling from 8am – 10pm, and Sunday from 8am – 6pm. Meals will be provided Friday, Saturday and Sunday, plus a special dinner and dance celebration on Saturday night. No dinner provided on Sunday.
Q: When should I travel?
A: We recommend arriving on May 18 or the day before the event begins and departing the day after it ends. Our last day together is a full day, typically ending by 6 p.m. Please get to the hotel by 5pm on May 18th and don’t plan to leave until 6pm on May 21th.
Q: What should I bring/wear?
A: All the juicy details, including packing and attire recommendations will be added to your student account area for registrants ahead of the event. What we can say is, you’ll want to be comfortable – and creative! We can’t wait to move and play with you.
Q: I’ve been to S Factor retreats in the past, how will this be different/same?
A: The S Gathering is a new S Factor event format designed to support a celebratory atmosphere of the gathering feminine that honors feedback from previous events while allowing us to play in new ways and create more spaciousness and connection for our community. We are excited to keep women together in larger cohorts during the day’s events and offer body reading and movement workshops specific to the experience levels of these groups. Advanced/experienced women will have their own afternoon sessions, while keeping these advanced women together in movement rather than split off into tracks. Some aspects will be comfortably familiar, while evolved in new ways. We hope you’ll choose to join us!
Q: What is your COVID policy?
A: We will be following the local and regional guidelines where our events will be held. We intend this to be a mask-optional event, so please consider your own risk tolerance in choosing to attend. We are dedicated to creating a safe and healthy atmosphere for everyone, and we ask that you be considerate of your fellow S women as well by reducing your exposure in the 5 days prior to the event and taking other standard precautions including masking while traveling. Your S sisters thank you!
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Because of the production requirements and popularity of our events, please be sure you are registering only once you are certain you can attend. Please familiarize yourself with the details of our event cancellation requirements listed below. Payment plans are a commitment to pay in full, and the cancellation policy will be applied to the full amount due.
