Four fragments of sessions in a small therapeutic group reveal the oscillations between individuality and a primitive mental condition. This is considered as a way of eluding thought, seeking to avoid the dark and frightening dimensions of life. Through instances of unsaturated intervention, the conductor indirectly encourages the development of group elaboration, giving rise to the narrative organization of the dreams of some of the group members, thus stimulating the mythopoeic sphere. From this mythical-relational reciprocity, the development of an individual thought was triggered through the recognition of their own hatred towards parental figures on the part of some of the group’s participants. A particular weaving between the physical symptoms of a patient and the dreams of another opens the door to questions regarding the ties between the prenatal sides of the personality and psychosomatic organization.
