She was born in a catholic family in 1957. In childhood already she felt a strong bond with a higher reality. She has a passion for nature and animals, and ponders into Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Krishnamurti, Gandhi and other spiritual masters.
In 1988, at a short stay in the mountains of Switzerland, she has a vision of Jesus climbing a ladder in the expanse, inviting her to follow Him. She maintains her search for truth and has antoher third and a fourth child.
She dropped every kind of religion, dogma, doctrines, norms and rules. As a free woman, only following her intuition, she gives birth at home with a midwife and takes responsibility for education and health of the children herself. She prefers faith in God, rather than in science and takes care of a sound environment with a lot of love and attention, and natural nutrition.
Her trust is growing more and more and in 1995 she takes, after a three days fasting period for certainty, the decision to leave with her children for life with a caravan, later on switched for a light covered caravan, with two horses.
By trial and error, she succeeds in her spiritual goal and surrenders herself and her family to Life, which kneads, shapes, ... She keeps on discovering the thrue God who protects, heals.
During the caravan life, that takes about ten years, they travel form village to village at the rhythm of the horses, covering about 17,000 km. Spinning, knitting, sewing, drawing, painting, writing diaries and letters are carried out on site. Son Tristan shoes the horses, makes leather shoes and sandals, gathers wood for the stove to cook on, and fetches water. Everyone learns languages and plays an instrument or sings. Together they meditate on Love and Respect. Linde and Helena are taught by Lara. (To know more on the children, find their links at the contact page)
Eventually, the children grow up, have built up inner strength, and leave the wagon to study, sit mid-jury exams, and go to university.
Christine is allone again, becomes a grandmother and lives a solitary hermit life. She keeps on living in a caravan, without electricity and running water, in the middle of the Ardennes woods. She has a vegetable garden, chickens and dairy goats and makes cheese. She earns her living by breeding Swiss White Shepherd puppies.
In 2014 she let go again and set out on a first pilgrimage of 1,000 km on foot. A second tour will follow in 2017. Here she sets out from home through Belgium, France, Switzerland and Italy, to arrive in Rome after more than 2,000 km. For the first time, a schedule of this trip was kept on her website.
