Embodied Field, Somatic Reverie and Patients with Blocks to Symbolization. There are situations which manifestly involve a serious difficulty of symbolizing due to the absence of foundations for more mature mental functioning - that is, a background of sufficient familiarity or continuity of being. To re-establish movement, the path to symbolization may pass by way of the analyst’s capacity to maintain the faculty of imagination, but even before this, by dreaming in the body (or, better, in the "somatic field") what is happening, so to get in touch with the crisis, and to provide an initial representation of it, this representation itself affording virtual salvation. Sensory reveries (or rather, bodily reveries i.e. ones without immediate representational content or perceptive quality or conscious intentionality) are a way of bringing about initial transformations in the direction of thought. Of course the concept of embodied field and somatic reverie only are meaningful within a radical intersubjective theory of the unconscious communication between minds, in our case a Bionian theory of the analytic field.
