The Quest of Rose: The Cosmic Keys of Our Future Becoming is the first book of the Future Humans Trilogy series. Written as an allegory, The Quest of Rose guides you through an experiential transformation journey that weaves together real-life events that are at the forefront of what’s happening in our world right now, with cutting-edge insights from the new sciences, indigenous wisdom, and consciousness teachings for discovering the greater possibilities of our future becoming. Already referred to by many world-renowned luminaries as: “a masterpiece“, “epic and unlike any other“, “one of the most important books of our catalytic time“, and “a true gift to humanity.”

The Quest of Rose offers the promise of a possible future through nine Cosmic Keys and twelve transformation practices for developing your future potential of a new era. In the words of Lynne McTaggart’s foreword: “The Quest of Rose is ultimately a work of profound hope by offering a powerful new definition of ourselves and a vision of unlimited future possibility. But this trilogy also means to be an incitement to radical transformation. And there may be no turning back. Once you are caught up in Rose’s revelations and begin to understand the deep truths within them, a new way of your own being must be born. Allow this brilliant new story to unleash the imaginal cells of your own extraordinary potential and become the future human you were always meant to be.”

The Quest of Rose is so much more than a book, through it you embark on an experiential journey that will shift your consciousness to the new and ancient possibilities of our future becoming. You’ll join the quest of the future humans of a new era, which is really our own quest into the heart of reality to discover the fundamental unity of life

Guest Biography


“Like all of you, I am too a soul who came here on this fascinating earthly journey to gain more awareness of myself through a new perspective based on polarity. My heart and my imagination are the navigation tools. As I progress into the physical experience directed by the voice of my heart and by the synchronicities of life, I increase my ability to discern what is resonating from what is not and I become more and more aware of what I already am “

Marco Missinato

I have always silently loved all the people I have met so far in my life, whatever role they were playing,  the good, the bad, or the ugly.

This is because I see wonderful souls in everyone, only temporarily wrapped in sleep that gives them the opportunity to have experiences that in an awakened state would not be possible.

When we eliminate judgment, we find wonderful beauty in all of this.

It is this love that I have felt for humanity since I was a child that inspired me to embrace the creative process of life.

I am therefore a soul and an artist.

Through music, photography and words I crystallize and share my feeling and the awareness that is constantly expanding out of it as I progress in this wonderful journey within the human operating system.

The intent is simply to evolve (remember) and, in this evolution, to be supportive in the awakening process that is unfolding during the intense transition that humanity is experiencing in this delicate moment of its journey.

It is through creativity that I constantly stimulate new awareness in myself.

Then, through the sharing of my creation, I offer, to those who wish it, a way of feeling life from a different point of view and, through it, I extend an invitation to consider the possibility that there is much more in us of what our current human experience has led us to believe.

Each of us plays a fundamental role within the universal creative process and brings with it a unique and indispensable frequency for existence and for everything that is part of the Source itself.

Therefore, I sincerely hope to inspire those who feel a resonance with my offering to embrace their uniqueness and their most intrinsic truth in order to trigger and ignite the recognition of that divinity that resides in each of us, opening the soul to a higher level of conscience and personal freedom.

“I know that you are magical, that you are an extraordinary being. I know inside you there is a great strength and that you have come here on Earth to use this force to become even more extraordinary and, as a reflection of this,transform the world around you, support nature, help humanity and dance free with life. Man and my travel companion, I believe in you … and I love humanity.”

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
