Hellinger, Bert, Gunthard Weber and Hunter Beaumont, Love's Hidden Symmetry: What Makes Love Work in Relationships, Zeig, Tucker and Co., 1998. Bert Hellinger is a German therapist and former priest now in his seventies. His work stems from the idea that all members of a family are deeply bonded to each other in love and loyalty. Children who were miscarried, aborted, stillborn, or adopted are included in one's family constellation; and Hellinger aims for clients to create a family dynamic that supports the flow of love. He works extensively with people touched by adoption, war (including the Holocaust), serious illness, and incest. His observations are unique, provocative and controversial.

Katie, Byron with Stephen Mitchell, Loving What Is, Harmony Books, 2002. Byron Katie suggests you write down your judgements of other people, then ask yourself four questions so you can get to know your own thinking. Last, you "turnaround" your judgements, and offer them to yourself as medicine. For example, after inquiring into my thinking, "My neighbors should get quiet and go inside," turns around to "I should get quiet and go inside."
