Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The qualities of aliveness in our relationships determine the quality of our life. Natale reveals how to recognize and recreate the 20 vital qualities of relationship including responsibility, service and acknowledgment, affinity and trust, effective communication, honorable sexuality, forgiveness, laughter, humor and playfulness, relatedness and the presence of love. “In seeking these qualities,” Natale writes, “You will gain an opportunity for greater awareness of your self, which is the highest achievement any of us can accomplish at any given moment.” These qualities are found in personal or romantic situations, but are also evident or lacking in our relationships with money, religion, sex, work and authority. They are the indicators of the status of our relationship with everything that is our life.
