INTRODUCTION
Vassallo Giovanna (alias Maya Vassallo Di Florio, from now on "the teacher") based in 144 Via Val di Lanzo 00141 Rome Italy,
Offers trainings of empowerment and personal growth, including "Priest-ess of the Sea and Priest-ess of Aphrodite and Sacred Sexuality"©.

PURPOSE

The purpose of this document is to clarify the details of the "Priest-ess of the Sea and Priest-ess of Aphrodite and Sacred Sexuality"© Path by Maya Vassallo Di Florio (from now on, "the training" ) with the Participant in the training (from now on "the Participant"), their respective roles as well as how the communication will take place, in such a way as to make the experience as positive, enriching and valuable as possible for the Participant.


RESPONSIBILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS

"Priest-ess of the Sea and Priest-ess of Aphrodite and Sacred Sexuality"© by Maya Vassallo Di Florio is an initiatory training aimed at the personal empowerment and service to the Goddess and Her community. This requires accepting the challenges which are between the Participant and her/his full personal growth. The person who chooses to undertake this path takes the responsibility to recognize and heal her/his wounds and not to project them on the teacher and/or on the other Participants.
The offered service is not a counseling service or individual and/or group psychological therapy. The training is very intense, for this reason it is common for old wounds and unresolved patterns to emerge. In case it is difficult to overcome these blocks, the support of an individual psychological path is recommended.
The Temple of the Great Goddess of Rome is a Community based on the values of mutual and circular care. The Cure is never related to a single person, otherwise we would reproduce the patterns of patriarchy - which put all the weight on the shoulders of mothers - by giving all the responsibilities to the teacher or Priest-ess as if it were a bottomless pit. In the Community of the Temple each person takes care of each other. It is a system based on co-responsibility.
During the entire training, the teacher will make her knowledge and experience available, and she will support the Participant in this journey in an honest and transparent way.
The Participant is aware of the fact that she/he is responsible for carrying out the actions that will determine the success of the training. Consequently, the Participant undertakes to do what will be necessary to obtain the desired results and she/he is aware that these will depend mainly on herself/himself.
The Participant is invited to:
Show up for lessons on time, or inform the administration at the email address mayavassallodiflorio@gmail.com or goddesstemplerome@gmail.com if unable to attend;
Make a serious commitment by giving the best of herself/himself, with the awareness that there may be natural ups and downs, or that normal resistances or internal blocks may emerge during the development of the training;
Carry out carefully the practices and activities requested by the teacher;
Respect delivery times for activities to be carried out individually.
The Participant also undertakes to communicate sincerely and openly with the teacher and with the other Participants of the course, in full awareness that the information provided will be treated confidentially.

It is a process formed by consecutive phases, each of crucial importance, which follow one another as the flow of seasons.

The training represents a very intense life experience, which leads you to immerse yourself in the initiatory process by keeping in mind that awareness needs time and gradualness. The individuals who are part of the Circle are like

mirrors for each other, by accelerating the healing of their wounds as long as there is a relationship with the other participants and the teacher with an open and sincere heart.
The Path requires trust, strong motivation and a great desire to overcome the resistances that you will naturally meet along the way; in exchange, however, it offers the possibility to explore the most authentic parts of yourself and to reveal your unique treasures.
If there are any doubts about registering for the training and you need to talk about it with the teacher, it is possible to request a short appointment on zoom by writing an email to mayavassallodiflorio@gmail.com or goddesstemplerome@gmail.com for further clarification.
After the conversation, it will be a responsibility of the Participant to make their own decision on the matter. Any further interview required with the teacher will be considered as an Individual Session and a payment will be required based on the teacher’s fees.
This is both to honour the teacher's work, professionalism and time, but also to empower each person in the decision-making process that belongs to them.

MEETINGS

The dates of the Q&A online meetings and of the seasonal Ceremonies are indicated in the training presentation form, but you’ll receive notification via email and Facebook group .
