* LA PASSION PRISONIERE (emprisoned passion)

After meeting these researchers and summarising their findings , Jacotte CHOLLET questions the role of the human psyche, "consciousness ", emotions & the Body / Mind connection.

Up until that moment she was mainly focused on the sense of Vision, she now realizes that another sense "HEARING" triggered by the VIBRATION OF SOUND WAVES activates a more global mode of brain functioning.

Therefore, she directs towards a new experimental path the study of the VIBRATORY EFFECTS OF SOUND on the human psyche.

1984 : Using "sound synthesizers" new instruments allowing an unlimited exploration of sound frequencies, she obeys an inner voice urging her to explore the action of sound vibrations induced out of "expanded" states of consciousness with psyche and soma .
She creates a spontaneous music composed out of a state of expanded awareness .

1991: Andre VOISIN, her long time companion and husband dies.

She produces her
1st CD of Multidimensional music : " INVISIBLE PRESENCE" and creates her own Producing company : MMD Productions.

1992: She then co creates with a biological researcher L Ries, the "Institute for Development and Expansion of Consciousness" which organises workshops based on "resonance" with "Multidimensional music" and collects data from "experiencers" .
A series of biological analysis show the deep influence of MMD music not only on consciousness states but also on physiological correlates.

Research shows that MMD music increases the amount of oxygenation in the blood, stimulates the immune system, acts as an "orderly" or "negentropic" provider at the same time it allows connection with the deepest layers of the psyche and causes resurgence of unconscious repressed stuff …

A book called "SUPERLUMINAL Medicine" is published by Professor Regis DUTHEIL, a Quantum Physicist teaching physics at the POITIERS Faculty of Medicine and Vice President of the Louis de BROGLIE Foundation.
Chapter VIII of his book sets the basis of real Holistic view of medicine for the XXIst century, it is dedicated to Jacotte CHOLLET's research.
