This study describes the experiences of six participants who engaged in the process of Archetypal Dreamwork. The purpose of this study is to contribute to that body of knowledge which pertains to working with dreams in therapy, from the perspective of the participants. Through thematic analysis, interviews with the six participants yielded two main themes and five sub-themes. The findings indicate that engagement in Archetypal Dreamwork for the participants in this study feels safe and is effective for most in generating insights, acceptance, and understanding of oneself and others, which manifest as changes in how one relates to the self and others. The findings are consistent with other research which indicates a role for working with dreams in the context of therapy. --Leaf ii.
