Goddess & Environment
Save Mother Heart
BRING YOUR DRUMS!

DRESS CODE: blue, green, brown, the colors of Mother Earth
May 22nd and 23rd 2021 this event will come back completely renewed, adapting to the circumstances that require a physical distancing.

For this reason we decided that the next Roma Goddess Conference will be fully online, live-streaming and bilingual (Italian and English), to allow everybody, from every part of the world, to be easily part of it.

Distant but close, in deep connection of hearts, souls and minds
The theme of this year will be "Goddess and Environment - Save Mother Earth", highlighting the need for community action regarding the climate problems affecting our planet.

There will be lots of Special Guests, Beautiful Ceremonies and Workshops!
The Roma Goddess Conference is meaningful and aims at being impactful like a beautiful and strong seed planted in the very heart of patriarchy to create a whole Mother Forest.
In this time, when the Goddess is coming back, by making Her voice heard throughout the world, awakening people and calling all of us to Action, the patriarchal culture - based on domination, prevarication, "power on" dynamics - is destroying itself.

Those who act according to this predatory paradigm, feel the threat of loss of all the privileges, accumulated on the shoulders of those who are at the base of the economic and social pyramid.
If on the one hand, we rejoice at the change of paradigm which is unfolding before our eyes, on the other side there seems to be an increase in violence and greed.

Precisely for this reason, now more than ever - during this political, economic, social, humanitarian and, above all, environmental emergency -, we must join together from all over the world by sharing our differences as a source of enrichment, to act with the common intention of manifesting
MotherWorld's vision.
Will you join us in this Sacred Purpose?

Mumta Ito
Founder of Nature's Rights Organization
Talk "Nature's Rights: Change the Paradigm, Transform the System, Embody the Change"

At the heart of our multiple interconnected emergencies is an old paradigm encoded in law that drives our societal systems on autopilot in a degenerative cycle of destruction that ultimately leads to extinction.

Mumta will speak about the Nature's rights and how changing the legal and governance structure at a fundamental level will bring about this vital change for all life on Earth.

Workshop "Reality Shift"

"In the Reality Shift workshop, I will teach a hands on simple bodywork technique that aligns the conscious and subconscious mind for rapid manifestation to fast track your evolution in any area of your life, and also the co-evolution of humanity.

It's a simple technique that gets fast results. It can be used for practical things as well as spiritual issues, and works at the micro and macro level."
Michela Cericco
Activist for the Defense of Human Rights of Maternity and Birth and Member of the Ethics Committee of the first Observatory of Obstetric Violence in Italy
Talk "Save the Mothers"

Breastfeeding lays the foundation for good health for all children, both in the short and long term, and is also good for mothers.

In reality, women face numerous obstacles to breastfeeding, starting with the violation of the human rights of motherhood and birth as described by the United Nations Council Special Rapporteur Dubravka Simonovic in the Annual Report which for the first time addresses the issue of obstetric violence as gender-based violence "women become victims of poor health systems, proven by the lack of time and resources, discriminatory laws and dangerous gender stereotypes on the natural role of women in society and motherhood also play a role in childbirth and contribute to limiting the autonomy and the action of women ".


Annabel Du Boulay
Founder of The Avalon Rose Chapel and Rose Priestess of Avalon
Workshop "The Black Earth Mother Goddess of the Rose Lineage"

"It was 1993 when I first went to live with an Italian family in a rural village in Campania, Italy, and became fascinated by the quasi Pagan-Catholic veneration of the Virgin Mary as Earth Mother. My Italian 'Mamma' would say a prayer to the Madonna as she sacrificed a chicken and then offered its blood to the Earth in gratitude. Her entire life was, and still is, devoted to the agricultural and ceremonial cycle of the year. 16 years later, I published my witch-burnings novel The Serpent's Tale, set in the same village, close to the mountain of Montevergine, where Virgil was initiated at the Temple of Cybele, the Anatolian Black Earth Mother Goddess, whose rites are still enacted in honour of the Black Madonna.

In The Serpent's Tale, the wise-woman Rosa declares, "One day, the Black Goddess will return in her full glory, bringing with her the wisdom of how to live in peace with ourselves, each other and the Earth." In this workshop, we'll be exploring the teachings of the Black Earth Mother Goddess of the Rose Lineage to guide and inspire us in our relationship with the Earth".
Valeria Trisoglio
Teacher and Priestess of the Temple of Ara
Workshop "A World of Spirits - Connecting with the Spirits of Place to Heal the Relationship Between Humankind and Nature"

Now more than ever it appears clear to us how unbalanced our relationship with the Earth is. But how did we get this far?
The split between humankind and the environment occurred in the heart and soul of Western cultures long before its effects became so evident on the outside.
It's for this reason that, while we strive to heal the planet's ecosystems, we should also care for the spiritual aspect of our relationship with Mother Earth.

In this workshop, after a short introduction, participants will be guided through some exercises aimed at grounding our activism in a concrete spiritual practice. In this way, day after day, we will start to heal the sacred web that connects us humans with the spirit of the planet, bringing back to life the ancient wisdom of our ancestors.
Massimiliano Palmesano
Writer, Story teller, Independent researcher
Workshop "The roots of Sound: Ritual and Healing"

The workshop is proposed as a journey through the relationship between the human being and the ability to create sounds to communicate, for ritual and therapeutic purposes.

Music, since ancient times, has been an important element in religious events, rituals and as a healing tool.

Precisely this magical-religious connotation of the musical experience is at the basis of the birth of myths, legends and fables that pass on the function of rhythm and melody as keys to access other dimensions and non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Kellianna
Neo-Celtic Singer and Songwriter
Concert

With guitar and vocals she brings to life the stories and sagas of the Gods and Goddesses.

With frame drum and chant she honors the Earth and the Ancestors with primal drumming and soaring vocals.

Since 2003 Kellianna has performed her music in 11 countries on 3 continents with regular visits to Canada, the United Kingdom, Western Europe and Australia. Kellianna is a certified teacher of the vocal practice SpiritSong, a powerful tool for freeing your voice and honoring the divine within. Experienced in the art of ritual chant, she uses song to move energy, to celebrate the ancient mysteries, and to empower intention.

Talk "The Goddess, Mother Earth and the Unilateral Giving/Receiving Structures of Life"

To use an analogy from our computer age, unilateral giving and receiving is the 'operating system' of humanity. A gives to B (who receives) and B gives to C (who receives) and C gives to...etc. is the repeated structure that gives value to the receiver and forms the relational matrix of communication and community.
Market exchange is only a kind of contradictory (though popular) software (perhaps actually malware) that contradicts and parasitically takes from the gift economy of humans, Nature and the Goddess in all.

By reclaiming the gift paradigm, and framing our practice for social change within it we can revise our conception of ourselves as a maternal species on mother Earth in the bosom of a Maternal universe where we receive the gifts of light and stardust mediated by the affordances of our environmental niches and the ordered impulses of our neurons travelling across pathways from source to receiver or goal.

This narrative of who we are can allow us to break through the death-dealing thought patterns of patriarchal capitalism that are leading us to the destruction of all.

Talk "How Mother Nature died. The bio-cosmic rupture of the Italian Renaissance"

It was not a sudden death, but a long process with deep and distant roots intertwined with the relationship between the sexes.

How did we go from holding some basic survival knowledge, including the awareness of the contiguity and total dependence of the human world on Nature, of the fluidity of the boundaries between the vegetable, animal and human kingdoms, between the world of the living and that of the dead, and of the possibility of communicating between these worlds (shamanism), of which there is evidence already in the distant Paleolithic (between 50,000 and 12,000 / 10,000) to empires and colonies, industrialization, world wars, market economies, globalization?

Luciana tells us about it in her enlightening talk.
Maya Vassallo Di Florio
Founder of the Goddess Temple Rome no-profit and Roma Goddess Conference
Talk "Aphrodite as Potnia, the Earth Queen"

In this talk Maya Vassallo will bring us all the Archeo-Mythological evidences of the most mysterious and enchanting Goddess: Aphrodite.

Aphrodite was called with many names, among which: Potnia Theron, Kyprys, Pharmaka and Python, that means Lady of the Animals, Lady of the Land of Cyprus, Lady of the Plants and of Medicine.
She was, in fact, Mother Earth born from the Sea, which is Her own Womb: a Parthenogenetic Great Goddess, much more than what patriarchy transmitted to us.
Aphrodite is the Mother of Creation and wherever she walks, her feet kiss the Earth and make beautiful flowers and plants grow.
She is the Queen of Mat(t)er, She is the Magnetism that draws every creature to make love and every polarity to dance in perfect harmony.
She brings Re-Generation and allows the spiralling of Space and Time.
Are you ready to revolutionise your ideas about Her and to let yourself be amazed by all Her Magnificence?
Come and enter the Mysteries of Aphrodite as Mother Earth and Great Queen.
Immerse yourself in the Ancient Memories of Her Plant Magic, Her Perfumes, Her Alchemic Art, Her Sacred Drum, Her Snake Medicine and much more!

Workshop "Aphrodite Mystic Rose"

Since we were Witches, Shamans, Priestesses and Priests in very ancient times, plants have always been our allies.

The Rose has an incredible variety of properties and has a very grounding and, at the same time, a very uplifting energy. The Rose teaches us how to sensually blossom and unravel pure beauty like Her Petals.

In this intense and transformative Workshop, Maya Vassallo will unfold for us the Mysteries of the Rose and the Magical and Therapeutic uses of this amazing Earth ally which is so dear to Aphrodite.

We will learn how to ground and ecstatically expand through Ancient Sacred Practices with the Rose, involving all Senses, to use the Kitchen Magic to create a powerful and delicious Rose and Cocoa Potion and to practice Divination with Rose Petals.

Come and explore the Rose Alchemy, enter the Mysteries of one of the most magical and sensuous plants on Earth, let Her Medicine sink in your body and whisper Her Magical Secrets to you!

Talk "Earth Rising, Women Rising"

"We are the Earth. We are the land. We are the soil. We are Biodiversity. We are part of
Nature. We are Co-creators with the Earth, not her Masters and Owners.
We feed our families, communities, countries and the world through Earth Care.
We are one Earth family, deriving our common identity as earthlings from the Earth, sharing our common sustenance for life, breath, food and water, from the land through community and mutuality.
When we care of the land and the soil, we reclaim our humanity.
Our future is inseparable from the future of the
Earth".
Erika dell'Acqua
Teacher of various types of Sacred and Tribal Dance and Vice president of Pagan Pride Italy
Workshop "In Heart of Gaia"

In this workshop we will approach the Sacred Dance as a gift to the Earth. We will observe how the dancer's feet are like sacred clappers that weave the wefts of life by marking the beat of the Great Mother.

The dancer's hands become animated brushes with which to paint Signs, Symbols, Stories in the air.

The belly of the dancer becomes the ocean, powerful and deep, sweet and terrible like the ancestral waters.

The heart of the dancer, burning with lightning and lava, lightning and stars, a source of passion and transformation, a cosmic forge.

And finally, we will seek the Divine in the Dancer, the spark of the Spirit and the mutual gift between Humans and Gods.

We wear comfortable clothes that allow us to observe our movements. We prepare a clear and clean space in which to move.

Let's light an incense or a candle, and let's get ready together to offer the Earth the gift of our Dance.

Co-Founder of the Italian Circle of Avalon, Artist, Professional Educator and Researcher on the Sacred Feminine and its Archetypes
Talk "Humans and nature, an alliance to be restored"

Where do "we human beings" stand in relation to the "nature" dimension? Are we masters? Destroyers? Enemies? Allies? Guardians?

Why does someone prove to be very sensitive in the face of appeals to alleviate the impact that the human being has on the planet, while others remain indifferent or even oppose it?

The way we approach and narrate the problem has a direct consequence on the effectiveness of its resolution.

How can we be effective agents of change if our activism is based on modalities, thoughts and actions that still follow the rules of the same system that brought us into this trouble?

During this presentation I will present a radical change of perspective, a look from above that reveals the traps of patriarchal thought that prevent us from restoring the human-nature alliance.

It will then be possible to realize how the symbolism of the Goddess can indicate the way to think, narrate, act a new paradigm.

This concept might sound new for today's time, but it has indeed deep and ancient roots.
Alma Nimue and Frædior
Priestess and Priest founders of the Kaíla Maatreís - The Temple of the Great Mother of Safinim
Workshop "Mefite Ansantica. At the Threshold between Life and Death"

A swirling wind of gold rises from the bubbling darkness of the mud-erupting soil. It dances through and across the sacred grove, caressing the leaves, uttering a faint song of eternity: "Meee-fiii-tiiisss"... Then silence again. The air, harbinger of death, is now appeased. The lethal shadow of danger dissipates into vapours. Has She come to save you or to lead you into the Otherworld

Join us on a journey to meet Mefitis, "She who smokes in the middle". Great Goddess of the Samnite tribes, manifestation of Mother Earth in the sacred landscape of the Ansanto Valley, Lady of Light and Darkness.

She is the Goddess of the Threshold, a bridge and guide between the worlds. Queen of the Underworld: Giver of Life, Death and Regeneration. Bird Goddess, wild She-Wolf, Snake Goddess. Lady of the Cultivated Fields and Pastures. Protectrix of the People, Bringer of Healing and Fertility, Full-breasted Mother Goat.

Let us guide you into the fluid and sulphurous depths of Her Womb. Surrender to Her, welcome Her in, inhale the clearing breath of Her Dragon and let Her to touch you through the magic of Her plants and Elements.
