Our Common Fate video - by Rikke Kjelgaard

This video demonstrates our common humanity.

That every one of us experience unwanted thoughts and feelings.

Through processes of openness, awareness and engagement we can learn to hold these experiences lightly. We can learn to show ourselves, our inner and outer world both compassion and kindness while engaging in patterns of meaningful and vital behaviours.

This video is made with much appreciated contributions by trainers and trainees in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).


The rejection of our common fate makes us strangers to each other.
The election of that fate, in love, reveals us as one body.

Sebastian Moore


Thank you Robyn Walser and Kelly Wilson for your inspiration and contribution to ACT and to my life and practice and to this movie.
