Welcome to "CAL Chat" where we discuss our favorite Al-Anon and Alateen Conference Approved Literature. How many different types of Newcomer Packets are available? Which one pamphlet does Michael find helpful to read before his second Al-Anon meeting? How can forgiveness be considered another tool in our recovery? Episode 1 of this podcast is in 2 parts. Part 1 of 2 features an interview with Michael where he focuses on a section from the book "How Al-Anon Works" (B-22 for hardcover, eA-22 for the audiobook version, B-32 for softcover, and eB-22 for the e-book version) about forgiveness and how it changed his relationship with his father. We also talk about suicide and an entirely different way to read this book – by the index keywords! At this podcast show's website, www.calchatpodcast.com, I've attached a PDF document as *bonus content* that you can download to use the expanded list of keywords which are already sorted by page number from the preface to page 396. Enjoy a new reading experience!
