The article is the elaboration, from the point of view of analytical psychology, of an experience of bodily expressiveness conducted by the author within a situation of coercion of freedom.

The group, through the language of the body, manifested the myth, the symbolic narrative, that lived in the here and now of the meeting. The reparative function of the transpersonal-unconscious emerged with respect to the group's conscience. The river, as an archetypic image of the spirit, has reflected original value and purity to a consciousness identified with shadows of guilt, shame and unworthiness.
