ART. 3 – PURPOSE
1. The Foundation is no profit and apolitical, and it does not pursue objectives of union or denominational character.
2. The Foundation exclusively pursues aims of social utility and solidarity, its main purpose being scientific research and carrying out tests of healing and wellbeing techniques pertaining to the scope and techniques prescribed by French-
• Study with empirical and scientific verification of the effects of prenatal education, i.e. how the thinking and behaviors of the mother influence the wellbeing of the unborn child.
• Study of the effects of the meditative practices proposed by scientist and philosopher Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov on the wellbeing of people with a sampling statistical analysis approach.
• Scientific study of the effects produced at the psychophysical level by a conscious diet, i.e. the proposed method by the philosopher Aïvanhov called " Yoga of Nutrition".
• Scientific study of the effects at the psychophysical and clinical level produced by music therapy applied in accordance with the methods of the scientist and philosopher Aïvanhov, i.e. the use of voice as expressive technique, and of the audience’s awareness of the sounds.
• Scientific study of the effects of Paneurythmy, which is to say the sacred dance recommended by scientist and philosopher Aïvanhov, at the psychophysical level.
The empirical and scientifically measurable effects of these studies will be analyzed and studied with biomedical equipment as well in collaboration with the universities of medical and psychological research that are already widely engaging in such activities of scientific verification, in order to show the validity of the techniques proposed by Aïvanhov, to facilitate their deployment and to enhance the well being of individuals and the renewal of spiritual life in human societies.
