Eurotas Conference 2019
French author and ethno-musician, Corine Sombrun was recognized by the shamans of Mongolia and trained in rituals and trance techniques with them for many years. Since 2006 she has been collaborating with researchers in order to understand the brain mechanisms related to trance states. These studies are at the origin of the first research paper on Mongol shamanic trance as studied by neuroscience: Flor-Henry et al. 2017.
The latest development has been to create a technique to induce a trance state simply through thought. New research is currently underway at the University Hospital of Liège (le CHU) under the direction of Steven Laureys (GIGA Institute) in order to discover the mechanisms and therapeutic applications of the practice of this “cognitive” trance.

Cognitive trance: latest scientific researches
Thanks to her experience in the practice of trance and her ability to induce it by will, Corine Sombrun collaborates since 2006 with researchers in order to understand the brain mechanisms related to trance states. This research is at the origin of the first scientific publication on the Mongolian shamanic trance: Flor-Henry et al. 2017.
She was convinced that the trance phenomenon could and should be studied scientifically. This conviction was shared by Francis Taulelle and several of his scientific colleagues, belonging to several fields, chemistry, mathematics, neurochemistry, ethnomedicine, neuroscience. After Corine recorded the sound tools modeled to induce a trance, Francis Taulelle lent himself to his listening and discovered the phenomenon from inside.
