You can't.

If you need to communicate between a listener and the rest of the
application, you should store objects as servlet context attributes under
agreed-upon names.  There's no reason to reference the listener instance
itself.  (By the same reasoning, there is no way to get a reference to a
servlet or filter instance, either.)
