Attitudes and Values Part 1

The Relationship Arts reflect a set of attitudes, values, intentions and skills that contribute to the lifelong process of creation and re-creation that is a committed relationship. The Relationship Artist is a person who dedicates him- or herself to the pursuit of a transcendent relationship, and who never takes the process for granted. Awareness of these attitudes, values, intentions and skills becomes a profoundly important part of the daily experience of life for the Relationship Artist, in the same way that awareness of sound and rhythm is elemental to the musician’s work; awareness of form, color and line is essential to the painter; awareness of volume, form and texture is vital for the sculptor; and awareness of movement is indispensable to the dancer. And like the martial artist, the Relationship Artist is committed to pursuit of a centered, transcendent self-discipline that shapes all of the decisions of his or her life.

Relationship Artists see a creative challenge in the task of working out value and attitude conflicts. However they also understand the need to start with a shared sense of the fundamental values that shape the processes of their relationship, among these being, commitment, trust, respect, and counting each other all the time.
