018: Celebrating the Life of Dr. Mark Laaser

In this special episode of Pure Gold, we honor the life of Dr. Mark Laaser, one of the early pioneers in the field of sexual addiction & recovery. Dr. Laaser passed away early on the morning of September 27, 2019 after a long battle with myeloma cancer. His life & legacy is nothing short of amazing and while I didn’t know him personally, I did have the chance to interview him for the podcast in 2014. I share my thoughts of Dr. Laaser as well as the interview I did with him regarding his book, “Taking Every Thought Captive”.

Mark — we will miss you, but we thank God for your life and for the thousands of lives your ministry touched on this earth. Friends, enjoy the podcast.

  1. I had no idea he died. Dr. Weiss gets most of the credit for everything that comes out of this field, but those who know Laaser’s work are aware of this pioneer. I look forward to listening to this later. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It looks like to me they both made a significant impact. Not sure the credit needs to go to one person. There are many special people who work in this field. I consider Dr. Laaser’s work to be pretty monumental because he’s who I connected with and who’s materials I used for years in my recovery.
