Perhaps you can try leaning forward slightly. Let your eyes be gentle and receptive. What are you doing with your arms and hands? Do they hide you, block you, or close you off? Or are they welcoming?
Strive for openness and hospitality. Welcome the speaker with your body language. Allow them to speak to you, in their own words. Try to absorb their words, as well as the source of their words and that which transcends all words. Bathe in the sheer power and beauty of their presence.
