When does the conference begin and what time should I arrive?

The Opening Ceremony of Light begins at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, Oct 15th. Hotel check-in time is 4:00 p.m. It is a good idea to arrive at the hotel the afternoon of the 15th so you can get your registration materials and settle into your room. 

What is a good time to schedule my departing flight?

Thursday is a morning session only followed by lunch from noon to 2:00pm. Past experience has shown us that a 6:00 p.m. or later flight departure on Thursday, Oct 20th, will allow you to fully enjoy the closing ceremonies and the farewell luncheon.


When does registration start at the hotel?

  • Registration for the World Congress will be October 15th from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Eldorado Concourse – grand hallway connecting the ballrooms.  The front desk will direct you to that location. 
  • There will be two more registration times in the evening for those arriving later. They will be in the Exhibit Room, which is in the Zia Ballroom, next door to the Eldorado Grand Ballroom (sanctuary), from 6:00 p.m. to 6:50 p.m. and for 30 minutes following the closing of the Opening Ceremony of Light
  • The registration table will also be open each morning in the Exhibit Room for additional registrations. You will receive your program, name tag and meal tickets at registration.

What is the general format of the conference?

  • Breakfast buffet is from 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. Our program runs each morning from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by a 2-hour lunch break.
  • The afternoon session is from 2:00 p.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m. A half-hour break is scheduled each morning and afternoon. We have many wonderful speakers and musicians to enjoy throughout the week.

Can I stay at a different hotel and still attend the conference?

By having all our attendees stay at the hotel with the room and meal package, we are able to pay for the large conference room needed for this important event. For this reason, in order to be fair to the people who are covering the expenses by staying at the resort, attendees are not allowed to stay at other hotels.

Will there be any free time during the conference?

We like to have a flow of activities and time to just rest and be. We take a two- hour lunch break each day and Monday and Tuesday evenings will be free.  Tuesday afternoon will be free time.  Lunch will be early so we can go out, explore, and weave our energies into this powerful area.  Lunch on Tuesday only will be at 11 am. This will be important preparation for the influx of Light that will help to accomplish our facet of the Divine Plan.

Can I get a schedule of the speakers and events that will be at the World Congress?

We do not promote the presenters at the World Congress on Illumination because this particular conference is not about the presenters. It is about fulfilling the mission. We do, however, always have very enlightened and dedicated presenters and musicians. This is a life-transforming event for everyone involved.

How can I arrange to stay at Eldorado Hotel & Spa before or after the dates of the conference?

We will make all arrival and departure reservations with the hotel on your behalf. You may contact us by email – linda@eraofpeace.org or by phone - (520) 885-7909PDT 8am-5pm PLEASE DO NOT call the hotel directly to change arrival and departure dates.
