Abstract
The well is meaningful to many cultures in that it is a specific place where we obtain drinking water, a type of energy that enables the growth of all living things on Earth. In this study I discuss the symbolism of the well, especially as it relates to fertility and birth, its role as a mediator between consciousness and the unconscious, and its power of healing and regeneration. In particular, I explore the appearance of the well in dreams and cases from sandplay therapy in order to understand the Jungian process of individuation.
