Mary Pearl is open and honest, with a wonderful sense of humor. This is part of a longer talk, so it starts in the middle of an anecdote. She talks here about Steps 6, “Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character”, 7, “Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings”, 8, “Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all,” and 9, “Made direct amends to such people, wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.” Her talk is full of stories from her own life, which make me grin, make me think, and make me cry.
On Step 8: “I had hurt nearly everyone that I had ever come in contact with that I had allowed to care for me.”
She ends with her understanding of the promises.

Where can I get copies of the Mary Pearl T Step talks you’ve posted. Are they from one disc available somewhere?
I bought a 6 CD set from “Lee’s Tapes and CDS” (https://www.leestapesandcds.com/shop/) at an AA convention. The online shop has a couple of different step studies by Mary Pearl. The one I shared on the podcast is from a presentation in London Ontario.
