Christophe grew up in the Alps, between Switzerland and Italy,
in a French middle class family, diving in the pleasant side of
consumer society with parents who lived as children the hard time of
2nd world war.
He graduated as an engineer in agronomy, with a specialization in
socio-economy at the Chair of comparative agriculture of the National
Institut of Agronomy Paris-Grignon founded by agronomist and political
ecologist René Dumont. It allowed Christophe to understand
civilizations relationship with their territory, on all continents and
at all times of history: how they were born, had bloomed, reached a
climax, before starting decline and ultimately die, replaced by a new
one, ...more efficient to serve people and life.
In may 1992, Christophe realized what was the challenge of his
generation. It was at the eve of Rio de Janeiro Global Summit about
Environment. He participated to an international meeting of 350
studients in Toulouse - France, about Technologies and Planetary
disbalances. The goal was to bring to Governamental Summit a studients
contribution under the form of a commonly built convention on the
subject. It was an event supported by the Swiss Foundation Leopold
Mayer for the Progress of Humankind, and organized to allow
participative democratie through workshops and plenary sessions.
Christophe had a spiritual awakening at the exact moment of the reading
of the common declaration about to be approved. It happened under the
form of a kind of electric flow going up his spine up to the brain,
that he will discover later to be the Kundalini awakening.
Nine years later, Christophe realized thanks to Astrology and Dan
Rudyard's work on Sabian degrees, that the kundalini awakening happened
because the event had connected him to his life purpose: participate to
a collective creation analogue to "a choir of parishioners" unifying
their voices in a common transcendant expressed intention. And it was
This unexpected experience never left Christophe's mind since.
Christophe get married with a colleague agronomist too. They walk
together a common spiritual path, anchored in Catholic roots, becoming
open to all religions and philosophies of life, seeking to contribute
to the ecological challenge of their generation.
They decided to follow Gandi's path, becoming the change they wanted to see in this world.
It conduced them to adopt happy sobriety, inspired by Pierre Rabhi,
then leave modern world and lifestyle, cross the Planet and ultimately
settle in 2009 in the countryside of Bolivia, near a touristic and
cosmopolite village called Samaipata.
After running together a plants nursery for 7 years, until the
pandemic, Christophe founded a local non-profit organization, Alianza -
Samaipata, to help create sustainable development in the Municipality,
gathering graduated people living here.
Christophe is convinced, like Nelson Mandela, that education is key to
create Peace on this Planet, regenerating the healthy Social Body
existing naturally by God's design within Humanity on planet Earth.
It's a clear vision, fruit of Christophe's experience of parenting,
birthing eleven children sleeping, in couple intimacy, and raising them
close to Nature and their own Nature.
Christophe is Guardian of his Sanctuary of Nature - Angelica in
Bolivia, EcoProperty Designer, Sustainable development Facilitator for
his community - Samaipata, Philosopher, Author, Thought Leader,
Way shower, founder of
