The qualities of aliveness and consciousness in our relationships determine the quality of our life. Based on his popular Relationships seminar series, Natale reveals how to recognize and recreate the 20 vital qualities. "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 and romantic situations and are also evident or lacking in our relationships with money, religion, career and authority. They are the indicators of the status of our relationship with everything that is our life. This book will influence the manner in which you experience your relationships, help you assess these qualities and make the choice to acquire them. Natale's 20 vital qualities of aliveness include: Responsibility; Service and Acknowledgment; Affinity and Trust; Effective Communication; Self Esteem; Honorable Sexuality; Health; Forgiveness; Laughter, Humor and Playfulness; Relatedness and the Presence of Love.
