 Retreats & Webinars


Friday, June 30th


 There is a unique time in life when we do not recognize ourselves. One is awkward and hesitant, walking on eggshells - unable to flow through life

as it was meant to be. Everything can become a struggle as God seems farther away than ever before. What has happened? Why can’t you be your true Self?


Even when we are our trueness and one with God, another person can create friction and we find ourselves caught in a difficult trance. How do we stop the argument,

the fight with another? Is it that the ego is present?


Ego is the greatest obstacle between you and the heart of another. Ego too, is the greatest barrier to closeness with God. Join Frannie Rose and Bishop Richard Hanifen for a day learning about the dynamics of ego and how to defuse it. Begin to recognize the ego in yourself and in another so that you can speak your heart again. Find the new ways to allow your heart to flow with God and be your Self again. Learn how to handle ego encounters from your heart. Join us for a day of Encountering Ego!

Do you ever wish you could hear God?

As you've faced hard challenges in your life, have you imagined conversing with God?

Would you like to ask God questions  and hear His gentleness and kindness speaking directly to you?

Do you wish to know the meaning and purpose of your life?

Learn to hear God's voice.

Perhaps you've gone to church all your life peached the scriptures, and read of others who have had or sought the wisdom of a spiritual mentor, yet still  your heart longs for more.

Arising from her extraordinary journey with God, Frannie Rose inspires  students across the world to live in conversation and in union with God.  His voice is what she heard  as she emerged, miraculously, from seventeen years bedridden with illness and as she embarked on a new, awe-inspiring journey with Him.

In "Teach Them to Hear Me," A Guide to Conversing with God, Frannie Rose guides readers, step by step, through a contemplative journaling technique God shared with her for engaging in daily and increasingly deeper conversations with Him.

When  readers  say "yes" to this beautiful journey, they will experience what Frannie's many students have discovered: how to find inner peace  with God; how to uncover meaning, purpose, and fulfillment through His answers; and how to gift the world with their newfound peace.
