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!

QUOTABLE MOMENT FROM MICHAEL:

  • "Everything in this book is illustrative of what I need to know to lead a healthy and more spiritual life than I did before I came into the rooms."
