Salut Raphaël,

Monroe's research's scope go far beyond therapeutic music. Actually
Monroe has experimented much about OBE (Out of Body Experience). This
means : the conscience leaving completely the body and travelling.

He wrote amazing books about his experiences in this field (translated
in French by the way).

Best regards,

Roald Baudoux
