The Author meets with Maria Zambrano’s concept of Piety during a research on feminine religiousness. The background is mystic love for the Other. What is important is the constant interlace of religiousness with feelings and body experience. In this proposal, Piety helps the relation with Other and the structuring of a new, early consciousness. There are many points of contact with Jung’s thought and they are about listening, feeling, therapeutic relationship as a dialectic method, and about the individuation process. Maria Zambrano identifies Antigone as a figure of Piety, and as bearer of a consciousness and a listening guided by piety. The author, in the end, presents some considerations about a "small" piety, the Van Gogh’s Pietà. Piety, as the origin of the feeling, in its feminine specificity, is the background of those emotional-affective movements that let the therapeutic relationship be recovering.
