This metaphor from Dr Russ Harris helps illuminate some of the core principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), including Acceptance and Values. By going through the metaphor, we understand better the way we let our own 'demons' get in the way of living the life that we actually want to live, and ways of learning to tolerate and accept these demons so we can live our life.
