Questions and Answers

Here you will find questions we are frequently asked and their corresponding answers.

I am or I feel unwell. Can I still participate?

If you feel ill before you arrive, we ask you to decide on your own responsibility whether it is possible for you to participate in presence or whether you would rather not participate out of consideration for the many other people on site.
If you fall ill during the event and need support or are unsure about how to proceed, please contact the medical centre. They will be able to help you.

I would like to offer my help during the preparation or during the event. Who can I contact?

We are very happy to welcome volunteers! Please fill out the registration form that you can find on our website.

A refund is not possible. However, you are welcome to pass your ticket on to your Dharma friends.

I only want to come for one day. Can I buy a day ticket?

Day tickets are available for Saturday and Sunday. Day visitors have the same option of booking a ticket with food.
