Questions and Answers
Here you will find questions we are frequently asked and their corresponding answers.
I would like to offer my help during the preperation or during the event. Who can I contact?
We are very happy to receive volunteers! Please write an email to email@example.com
If you already have clear ideas about what your support could look like or if you have special qualifications that you would like to provide (e.g. medical training, foreign language skills, technical knowledge, security consultant, etc.), please let us know in advance.
I am or I feel unwell. Can I still participate?
If you feel unwell before you arrive, we kindly ask you to decide for yourself whether it is suitable for you to be present or whether you would prefer not to take part out of consideration for the number of other people on site.
If you feel unwell during the event and need assistance. In case you are unsure what to do, please do not hesitate to contact our first aid team. We also have medical masks in supply there.
I am unable to attend the event at short notice. Will I get a refund of the admission fee?
A refund is not possible. However, you are welcome to pass your ticket on to your Dharma friends.
Can I come at the last minute and buy a ticket on site?
Tickets are sold exclusively through Eventim. Therefore, cash payment on site is sadly not possible. But you can buy a ticket via Eventim up until the start of the event, as long as tickets are still available.
I have neither a credit card nor a Paypal account and I don't use online banking. How can I book a ticket?
Eventim offers several payment options.
If you can’t use any of them, maybe you know someone who can buy the card for you with your data (name, email address, etc.).
I have booked my ticket via Eventim and received a confirmation email. What is the next step?
In the confirmation email you will find a PDF with a QR code. You will need this code on site for admission. You can print out the PDF or bring it with you on your mobile phone. Please make sure that you have the QR code at hand when you enter.
I would love to attend, but I can't afford the reduced ticket as well. What can I do ?
Access to the Dharma should not be restricted or withheld for financial reasons. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. We will find a suitable way!
I have a handicap. Will I receive support?
If possible, please register before the event if, so that we can adapt better to your needs and let us know at the entrance if necessary. We will support you as best as we can!
Can I reserve a seat?
Unfortunately, we cannot reserve seats for participants.
However, there are enough seats in the hall and the video screen guarantees a good view on Karmapa Thaye Dorje from every seat.
