      ... the hospital chaplaincy program she just finished had a very interesting feature: for one to provide a non-anxious listening presence, one must leave one's "stuff" outside the door, and in order to leave one's stuff outside the door, one must know what one's stuff is.

      The whole class worked on helping each other discern those things.  It was hard work for an introvert like herself, but very rewarding.

      I don't know what made me tell you that -- maybe the "sharing" and "deep" parts of what you said.
