"Tempio della Grande Dea – Roma"

The Temple of the Great Goddess is dedicated to Aphrodite, Great Goddess of the Sea, Love and Sacred Sexuality.


As a community of the Goddess we are particularly devoted to the Goddess that is Sea and Love together, She is the energy that moves the world.
Our purpose is to contribute building the MotherWorld as theorized by Kathy Jones, and to offer a structured training and teachings in all the ares of spirituality, especially those concerning the Divine Feminine.

Today the Goddess is returning to our consciousness. Communities and Temples of the Goddess are raising again in Her world, allowing again the people to meet all together, recognize the Goddess, celebrating Her, creating again Her Sacred Spaces and experiencing Her marvelous, loving nature.

The first temple of the Goddess in Italy, significantly in Rome, opened after more than 2000 years from the destruction of all its temples!

We wanted to create a welcoming and loving Sacred Space, permeated with the presence of the Sacred Feminine and make it available to anyone who wants to meditate, pray, dance, find peace of heart, recharge and be in the presence of the Goddess.

The temple is also a spiritual center for research, anthropological and mythological offering of spiritual training courses and academic aimed at re-member the Goddess, "HER" worship, its rituals and its spiritual traditions of ancient and re-actualized, promoting the creation of a community inspired to gilanici values, the Matriarchy, and partnership.
