Why a Cosmic Consciousness Conference?
The time has come for humanity to reassess just about everything we believe about our past and the way in which we move forward.
Drawing upon teachings from our ancient ancestors, esoteric traditions and latest research from the world’s leading experts in consciousness, it is time to explore and embrace a new model of human existence – one that explains our celestial origins, multidimensional capacities, a recognition of ourselves as co-creators of an expanding universe and thriving in a heart-led, unity awareness. This is cosmic consciousness.
“A cosmic consciousness, then, isn’t just real – it’s totally necessary. It rescues physics and science in general from a dead end – the total inability to create mind out of matter – and gives it a fresh avenue of investigation.” – Deepak Chopra

Why at Uluru?
This World Heritage listed site, commonly referred to as the spiritual heart of Australia, has significant energetic and spiritual importance for many reasons.
Throughout the world, this site is known as a sacred site.
Uluru and Kata Tjuta is located on the third of the Earth’s chakra points. These chakra points are where energetic leylines intersect.
The Anangu, and others, believe the area was created at the beginning of time by ancestral beings – Uluru is regarded as physical evidence of the ancestors’ activities during creation. In 2020 at a rare Saturn Pluto conjunction, it is believed by the elders that a significant shift will take place – perfection will spread throughout the world – a cosmic umbilical cord will unite heaven with earth – a true cosmic consciousness. "The primary focus for this event is in Australia." - Robert Coon

Will it be too hot in January?
People who have never been to Central Australia in January often mistakenly assume it will be too hot. Whilst it is certainly very warm, it's really pleasant. Most of us Aussie coastal-dwellers are dripping in the humidity during January, but the dry desert heat has a really comfortable clime.
Kathryn says "I have been to Uluru 4 times now, always in January. I've never felt uncomfortable there and I am not someone who enjoys hot weather typically."
As Mick reminded someone on a recent query: "All the tours revolve around sunrise and sunset and at those times it can be quite cool in the desert. During the heat of the day, we are living it up in air-con comfort with delicious food!".
Every hotel within Ayers Rock Resort has a swimming pool,so you can relax by the pool with a cold drink at the end of the day and enjoy a refreshing dip.
Gail Nicholls flew over from New Zealand and was joined by 6 other Kiwis for the Jan 2018 Conference. Coming from the cool temperatures across the ditch, she was particularly worried the heat would be overwhelming. But as Gail said: "I asked the same question! We were there last year, [it was] hotter in Auckland. Needed RAIN coats! Amazing temperatures, not hot at all. Looking forward to next year and 8 of us going from good old NZ. We all LOVED IT! So going back with a few more tagging along."
The same can be said for Sydney which this summer had temperatures matching or above those at Uluru
Why 12 January?
When we first felt guided to run a Conference at Uluru, we weren't even sure why or for what purpose. But, trusting the higher plan we knew all would unfold as it needed to. Our original idea was to hold the event during one of the favoured seasons in the outback, the wildflower season in August/September. However, nothing aligned for us and we kept getting blocked. So, as we often do at a crossroads, we got out the pendulum to find out when it should be held. January kept coming up. Against all our logical thoughts that it seemed crazy to run our third Conference in the same month as our other 2 conferences, we couldn't escape the guidance we kept getting.
As we did our research and dug deeper and deeper, we began to see why we were being called to align our event in January. At the time we were ourselves exploring cosmic consciousness and awakening to our cosmic connections. At times we were deeply touched by the information that was being delivered to us, the people we were attracting into our life and the synchronicity that was unfolding. It kept pointing us in the direction of a Cosmic Consciousness Conference at Uluru.
And then we discovered why. It became apparent we had to start building energy towards an important date -12 January 2020 – the date of a rare Saturn Pluto conjunction.
This particular outer-planet conjunction is the most magical and eagerly anticipated union, out of all the various outer planet unions. It is believed that a significant shift will take place - perfection will spread throughout the world – a cosmic umbilical cord will unite heaven with earth. To us this seemed like a true cosmic consciousness. At the time, this phrase was rarely used and there was very little literature available on the web about it, but it deeply resonated with us.
We learnt that not only was it astrologically significant, the Aborigines speak of a great ritual at Uluru which was disrupted, and never completed, at the end of original Creation Time. This day in 2020 is an ideal time to complete the ritual.
From Robert Coon: "The year 2020 starts off with a really big, archetypal conjunction. The Planetary Solar Plexus Chakra - Uluru and Kata Tjuta, in central Australia, is the place for this event. The Aborigines speak of a great ritual at Uluru which was disrupted, and never completed, at the end of original Creation Time. I have written extensively about this ritual in my book, The Rainbow Serpent and the Holy Grail . This day in 2020 is an ideal time to complete the ritual. Construct a solar umbilical cord from the Earth to the Sun on this conjunction. The theory is that this will increase the influence of higher frequencies of life, as they flow, in both directions, between Earth and the Sun; and that this will be of benefit to all life forms on Earth.
Note that the 2020 event is really an exact quadruple conjunction, with the Sun and Mercury also within 1 degree of the Saturn-Pluto position. This will intensify the event, in terms of the heart, love, trust, and communication. Uranus stationary-direct in Taurus at the time will increase the event's ability to positively affect material structures.
The primary focus for this event is in Australia."
NB: 4.23pm GMT = 1.23am in Uluru
What's important about 2020?
“The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto occurs in 2020. This means that the completion, and start, of three primary planetary cycles coincide. The 20 year Jupiter/Saturn cycle, the 12.5 year Jupiter/Pluto cycle, and the 37 year Saturn/Pluto cycle. 2020, a pivotal year, initiates a significant new evolutionary current as these three new cycles simultaneously engage. A Societal RESET. … This harmonic symphony provides the energetic currents in which all life evolves on Earth – not only biologically, but also providing the context for the development of society – and most importantly, for the evolution of human consciousness.” – Nick Anthony Fiorenza

Why is healing so much better at Uluru?
All the sacred sites across this planet’s chakra points possess beautiful healing energy. However, Uluru magick potentiates healing even more so because the primary function of Chakra Three, the Solar Plexus chakra, is to maintain the vitality and increase the health of all individual beings.
In fact, Robert Coon, in his book ‘Earth Chakras’ says:
“The global function of this chakra is to maintain the vitality of the Earth, and all living species. In the future, if there is a world art of immoral health, then the wisdom of this art will be gained from Chakra Three in Central Australia. This wisdom is delivered to the rest of the world via the ley artery, the Rainbow Snake.
The Rainbow Serpent travels the path of life. It arises from deep beneath the surface of the Earth, and first emerges at Uluru.
The Uluru magick is then transmitted to Kata Tjuta via a special song line.”
Is accommodation included?
The Conference ticket price does not include accommodation. Due to so many peoples different budgets, travel times and preferences, it is easiest for everyone to choose their own accommodation. You can reserve it now and pay for it about a month prior to the Conference. Some people choose budget accommodation and others want 5 star luxury. See our accommodation page to decide what works best for you - there are 7 different types of accommodation at the Resort.
Where should I stay?
For those of you who have not been to Uluru before it can be a little daunting to understand all the logistics of accommodation. One of our most common questions is ‘Where will I stay?’. Voyages Ayers Rock Resort is the only place you can stay within a reasonable distance from Uluru. The Resort boasts 7 different accommodation properties to suit all budgets. The Resort feels like a little mini township – and indeed to the staff working there, it is their town. It even has a name – Yulara. Like any town, there is a town centre with shops consisting of an IGA, cafes, a post office, chemist, tourist shops and restaurants. The Visitor Information Bureau is also there so you can book your tourist activities. The Resort is a green oasis in the middle of the red outback.
You can walk around the Resort quite easily – from the furthest hotel, ‘The Outback Pioneer’, it is about a 10 minute walk to the Uluru Meeting Place where our Conference is being held. There is also a free shuttle bus that runs around the resort about every 10 – 15 minutes.
The Uluru Meeting Place where the Cosmic Consciousness Conference is held is located in the middle of the Resort, right near the town centre. The closest hotel is Sails in the Desert – just a 1 minute walk, followed by The Lost Camel in between the town centre and the Meeting Place - an ideal location.
For those on a tight budget, you can stay at the camping ground or the backpackers. We had many delegates stay here in January and really enjoyed it. The Backpackers was surprisingly quiet we were told. For those intrepid souls that like camping, they were able to experience really pleasant evenings under the canopy of the outback stars.
The next level of accommodation is The Outback Pioneer and The Lost Camel. The Outback Pioneer was the most popular hotel amongst our delegates last conference, and this time the new Lost Camel hotel was another popular choice as it has only just opened in July 2018 and is situated in a great location.
If you prefer to have an apartment with a separate bedroom and a kitchenette and washing machine, then the Emu Apartments is the place for you. Make sure that you ask for a room as far away from the telcom tower as possible.
Our personal favourite hotel is the Desert Gardens. We didn’t stay there, but some of our delegates did and it has been recently refurbished. It is set amongst beautiful gardens, has its own restaurant and pool and is tucked away, although still only about a 7 minute walk to the Meeting Place.
Sails in the Desert is the hub of the Resort. With a large pool, bar area, restaurant and being just across from the Meeting Place, it was a popular choice amongst many delegates as well. However, it is a bit tired and in need of an update. Still, a good choice if you prefer 5 star accommodation. Personally, although the facilities are 5 star, we don’t feel that the hotel accommodation was.
If you would like to stay at The Outback Pioneer, The Lost Camel, Emu Walk Apartments, Desert Gardens or Sails in the Desert, use the accommodation link on our website. This will guarantee you the best prices possible. The link asks you for your details, but your credit card won’t be charged until about 35 days before the Conference. As it is school holidays, it can get booked out so we strongly recommend you book your accommodation now.

Do you have permission from the Elders?
Although we do not need permission as the Conference is held in the Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, we are delighted to have received permission from Aunty Nelly, one of the most senior Anangu elders and the late Uncle Bob Randall's sister, pictured with the organisers.
