Maya Vassallo Di Florio is the Priestess founder of the Tempio della Grande Dea No-Profit, research center / association / community / sacred palce that she created with the intent of acting-culture, educating to a new social paradigm and the creation of new and more balanced models of existence. For years she has been collaborating with the La Sapienza University of Rome and she is involved in education and training as a teacher in study paths dedicated to those who reflect themselves in the urgent need to recover matricentric philosophy of care, nourishment, peaceful communication and interaction between people, partnership between women and men, attention to needs, respect for balance of the planet and of all the creatures that inhabit it, centrality of mothers, the elderly, children and women within the coommunity. On March 4, 2020 she was invited to the University La Sapienza to give a lecture about the Temple, the Goddess and the archaic and contemporary Matriarchal Societies, arousing great and lively interest and obtaining numerous awards for this epic event: it was in fact the first time in history of Itay in which someone has spoken openly about Goddess in the academic environment. She was also invited by Christian Raimo, councelor for culture from the III Municipality of Rome, to hold, in the Council Room, a conference on Matriarchies of past and present. However, due to Covid, the conference was postponed to safer times. The interest of the cultural and political world and the official declaration of such conference, however, they represented another event of extraordinary importance. In addition to La Sapienza, the work of Maya Vassallo Di Florio has received a lot of interest in various universities in Italy and abroad, such as the University of Turin, the John Cabot University and Oxford University. Since 2019 she has also been collaborating with the International Women’s House, who recently offered her a space in the structure to be used as a Research Center and detached office of the Temple. For several years she has been training (and still does, in Italian and English language, with students from all over the world) Priestesses and Priests of Aphrodite in an intense three-year course of study and offers other philosophical and practical training courses, attended by students from all over Italy e the world. She weaves the “Re-Activation of the Ancient Goddess Temples and Sacred Places” Project, with the aim of enhancing them touristically and culturally, restoring their dignity and life also through a dialogue with the directors of archaeological sacred sites. She holds -in various parts of Italy and the world- workshops and conferences concerning Feminist Philosophy and Spirituality, talking about the need to recover a Matriarchal structure in our society. She is the creator and founder of the Rome Goddess Conference, the first in Italy on the model of that of Glastonbury in UK.
Her travels through many Holy Lands such as Cyprus, Glastonbury, India, Thailand and Mexico and her studies with internationally renowned teachers constituted a very important part in her traiining. Maya is the author of a spiritual and feminist book on Aphrodite, published by Venexia Editing House, and a book about the Tempio della Grande Dea, Feminist Philosophy and Spirituality and the Matriarchal Societies (with essays written by the most authoritative researchers, feminist philosophers, professors and priestesses of the world), which will be published by La Sapienza University publishing house.
