One-one-One Sessions: We understand that you may need to change your booking, and we kindly request that you provide us with a minimum of 48 hours to allow us enough time to offer that spot to another client. A fee of SFr. 30.- is charged for late notice changes; the entire fee is charged for no shows. This policy is to confirm your commitment to attending your scheduled appointment, as cancellations and no shows have a significant impact on us.

All our Public Events are binding; due to long wait lists we require the payment in advance in order to reserve your spot. The Breathwork and Sound Healing Group Session are handled like any other public events; in case of short notice cancellations we always try to have someone from the wait list move up to take the spot; in that case we do our best to move your spot to another event in the near future. However, if your spot cannot be taken there is no refund. You can always gift your spot to a friend of yours.

For Retreats & Workshops: We require a deposit according to the confirmation email within 10 days after the binding registration. Up to 7 weeks before the start of the Retreat we will refund the full amount. Up to 3 weeks before the start of the Retreat we refund 50% of the seminar fee, after that we charge the total amount of the seminar costs. The cancellation conditions of the Hotel or Retreat Center apply to room and meal costs.

For Training Programs: We require a non-refundable deposit of Sfr. 500.- in order to secure your spot.  The remaining amount, according to the the invoice in the confirmation email, is is due at within 30 days after receiving the confirmation Email. Should there be any financial hindrances we are open for a monthly partial payment plan of three rates, under certain circumstance up until five rates. Complete payment is due by module 5 of the training program. There is no refund for the deposit; however, we are open if there are substantiated reasons for a cancellation; in this case your deposit goes to a subsequent training program. 

Application and law of jurisdiction

Swiss law will be exclusively applicable. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all proceedings and the place of performance shall be Zürich.



The transfer and use of the data from our website requires written consent. The content may not be reproduced, passed on, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent. All content presented, such as photos, illustrations, graphics and texts may only be used if approved by the owner of this Website (Sacred Ways Zürich)

Personal Data

The protection of personal data is very important to us. We therefore observe strict compliance with all applicable data protection provisions, in particular the Swiss Data Protection Act (“Datenschutzgesetz”) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation. We guarantee confidential treatment of all personal data entrusted to us and we assure you that we will handle this data with the greatest care and process the data appropriately and limit it to the amount needed for the purpose of the processing.

Use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. In case personal data is collected on our site (such as name, address or e-mail address), it will be carried out on a voluntary basis, if possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

Personal data means any information that can directly or indirectly identify a natural person. Examples of personal data include a name, an address, a phone number and an e-mail address, but can also include information about IP numbers or photos combined with other data if the information can be connected to a natural person. Processing of personal data includes any operation which is performed on personal data, such as collection, recording, analysis, adaptation, storage or destruction.

Please be advised that the transmission of data on the internet (for instance, through communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Thus, absolute protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

External Links

Throughout our site you will find links to external websites. Although we make every effort to ensure these links are accurate, up to date and relevant, we cannot take responsibility for pages maintained by external providers.


We place so-called cookies on our website based on our legitimate interest. These are small text files that are saved to your end device with the help of the browser. When you visit a website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string which enables the browser to be clearly identified the next time the website is visited.

A cookie enables us to optimise information and offerings on our website specifically for you. Cookies allow us to recognise visitors again. The purpose of recognising you again is to make it easier for you to use our website.

You can view and delete the cookies stored on your computer and you can also use your browser's settings to configure the handling of cookies generally. Further information on this may be obtained from the manufacturer or in the help function of your web browser. Deactivating cookies may, however, result in you not being able to use all the functions of our site.

Contact form

On this website we collect personal information in contact forms to get in contact with mainly potential clients to give them requested help or information. When the request is handled the data is removed or further handled if a continued contact is demanded.

We do not disclose your Personal Data to any third party.

Google Adwords

Based on our legitimate interest (i.e., our interest in analysis) we use the advertising program "Google AdWords" which is part of Google's online marketing services.

This process involves Google AdWords placing a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") when you have accessed our website via a Google advert. These cookies expire after 30 days and cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain of our web pages and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that someone has clicked on the advert and was directed to our web page as a result. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This prevents cookies from being tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to prepare conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided on conversion tracking. We receive no information through which you can be personally identified.


Social Plugins

We use plugins on our website. Plugins are small programmes or programme packages which are used to adapt and expand software in accordance with one's requirements. Many programmes, such as graphics programmes, media players or internet browsers, support the functions used by a normal user in their basic version.

We have incorporated links on our website to our social media profiles on the following social networks:

Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram.

For further information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection as well as further processing and use of your personal data, please consult the privacy policies of the respective provider. There you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and settings options for the protection of your privacy as well as your right to object to the creation of user profiles.


Our primary goal is to ensure that our website is as safe and secure as possible for you and for us. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human being and not a robot or other spam software. By spam, we mean any unsolicited information sent to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS, you usually had to solve text or image puzzles to check it. With Google’s reCAPTCHA we usually do not have to bother you with such puzzles. In most cases it is sufficient to simply check the box to confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version you don’t even have to check the box. How exactly this works and especially which data is used for this purpose, you will learn in the course of this privacy policy.

The legal basis for the use is article 6 (1) f (legality of processing), because there is a legitimate interest to protect this website from bots and spam software.

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and abuse by non-human visitors. This service is most often used when you fill out forms on the Internet. A captcha service is an automatic turing test that is designed to ensure that an action on the Internet is performed by a human and not a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a human makes the distinction between bot and human. With Captchas this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classical captchas work with small tasks, which are easy to solve for humans, but have considerable difficulties for machines. With reCAPTCHA, you no longer have to actively solve puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish humans from bots. Here you only have to tick the text field “I am not a robot” or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even this is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source code and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. From these user actions, the software calculates a so-called captcha score. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are a human being even before you enter the captcha. ReCAPTCHA or Captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).

Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

We only want to welcome people of flesh and blood on our site. Bots or spam software of different kinds can stay at home. That is why we do everything we can to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user-friendliness for you. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from the company Google. So we can be pretty sure that we remain a “bot-free” website. Through the use of reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google, which Google uses to determine whether you are really a human being. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and, as a consequence, your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA it could happen that a bot registers as many e-mail addresses as possible during registration in order to “spam” forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

Which data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

ReCAPTCHA collects personal information from users to determine whether the actions on our website are actually human. This means that the IP address and other data that Google requires for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always truncated within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data lands on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with any other data held by Google unless you are signed in to your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) are already placed on your browser. Then reCAPTCHA sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.

The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data which, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

  • Referrer URL (the address of the page the visitor comes from)

  • IP address (e.g.

  • Information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate.

  • Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)

  • Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)

  • Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)

  • Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is stored)

  • All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that allows websites to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all kinds of data under one name)

  • Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image consists of)

It is indisputable that Google uses and analyses this data even before you click on the “I am not a robot” checkbox. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version even the ticking is omitted and the whole recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly, you will not learn from Google in detail.


How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from you to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored is not clearly shown by Google, even after repeated requests. Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings are stored on Google’s European or American servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. Google’s differing privacy policies apply.

If you do not want Google to receive information about you and your behavior, you must completely log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at

So when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its representatives automatically collect, process and use data.

You can learn more about reCAPTCHA on Google’s web development page at Google will go into more detail about the technical development of reCAPTCHA, but you will not find detailed information about data storage and data protection issues there. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the company’s own privacy policy at
