The Institut Suisse des Sciences Noétiques (Swiss Institute of Noetic Sciences) or ISSNOE is a non profit foundation of public utility dedicated to the scientific and comparative study of non-ordinary altered states of consciousness (ASC) as well as to the analytical decoding of near-death experiences (NDE), extrasensory perceptions (ESP) and out-of-body experiences (OBE).



Dr Sylvie Dethiollaz, Sc.D., president of the Institut Suisse des Sciences Noétiques – ISSNOE
Frédéric Lenoir [fr]—philosopher, sociologist and religion historian—wrote a preface to one of the books that report on the scientific work carried out by Institut Suisse des Sciences Noétiques — ISSNOE — Noêsis.

The early stages of the original structure were born from the merger between the Noêsis[H 1] association—which was created in 1999 by Sylvie Dethiollaz, PhD in molecular biology[1]—and the fondation Odier de psycho-physique (Odier Foundation of Psychophysics) which was promoted in 1992 by Marcel & Monique Odier[R 1] and whose dedicated team included, among its distinguished members, some eminent figures such as biologist Rémy Chauvin and physicist Olivier Costa de Beauregard.[2][3][4][5]

Guiding principles[edit]

The foundation is dedicated to:

The result of this work is summarized within two books:


Dr Jean-Jacques Charbonier [fr]anesthesiologist and intensive care physician, founder of TCH—is a regular guest speaker at ISSNOE headquarters where he gives training seminars and workshops in “hypnothic transcommunication” (TCH).
Bernard Werber gives writing workshops at ISSNOE foundation.

ISSNOE also targets its activity on specific lectures and workshops given by researchers, philosophers, physicists, psychologists and prodromatic doctors whose integrative approaches focus on theme of mourning in a holistic perspective that makes possible to sketch the beginnings of a possible “survival of the soul”[H 2] or even a potential form of perpetuation of consciousness beyond its sole carnal substrate.[H 2]
