In this part two of two episodes, Deacon Eric sits down with Dr. Brett Salkeld to discuss three non-fiction, non-theological books that changed his life. This week; You Are Not Your Pain by by Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman and a surpise book that changed Brett's life without him ever reading it!

Show Snippet: "It's freedom. It's the same thing. Freedom again. It's the same idea as the last two books, right? I was not free in this relationship. My pain was leading to a kind of compulsive behavior and it gives me just a little critical distance, just like from the anger or from the avoidant or attached needs. It gives me a little critical distance to say, 'what's really going on here?'"
