Cyril and Maÿlis
After almost 20 years in finance and IT consulting in Paris, Maÿlis has decided to settle in her region, and launch a family and meaningful project. In parallel, she studies naturopathy and positive education.
Cyril has formelly worked as a freelance project manager for entertainment agencies or publicity agencies. He now focuses on developping l’arbre aux étoiles, which fulfills his wish for everyone finding his own nature. Also, he has been studying geobiology since 2013.
L’arbre aux étoiles is about giving sense to their professional competencies, by letting them serve eco-friendly purposes in a project that creates economic activity in a rural area, while promoting values of know-how transmission and sharing.
