Laying Community Foundations is an important resource for any parent who has asked, "Who will care for my child after I am gone?"  Packed with helpful ideas about building community and problem-solving tips for anyone who is serious about the question.

John Welwood

Absolutely one of my favorite books on the topic of helping others.  Welwood has brought together an amazing array of authors who write powerfully of east/west approaches to therapy.  Among my favorite chapters are Edward Podvoll's "Uncovering a Patient's History of Sanity" and Ann Cason and Victoria Thompson's "Working with the Old and Dying."

Welwood, J. (1985).
Awakening the heart: East/West approaches to psychotherapy and the healing relationship. Boston: Shambhala.
