creative listening

"...a creative listener is not someone who simply allows me to say what I already want to say, but someone whose listening actually makes it possible for me to say what I never could have said, and thus to be a new kind of person, one I have never been before and could not have been before this directed listening."
-James Carse , "The Silence of God"

Note, David Dark suggests Steve Stockman is that kind of person.
This all reminds me of Jacob Loewen's article on "Listening with the Third Ear"
