EditorEditor's note: Healers worldwide have long understood the miraculous healing power of deep, compassionate listening. Listening forms the core of psychotherapy. Everyone has an innate desire to be "heard" but we spend most of our time "hearing" formulating our own responses, rather than being truly present and listening. Deep listening requires learning and patience but the rewards are truly rich as this week's stories help illustrate. -Ameeta
