Carol Wilson's Dharma Talks
Carol Wilson
What I most love in my teaching practice is seeing students become dedicated to their own liberation. As their spiritual practice matures, people light up from within when they begin to understand that personal freedom is possible. This commitment to freedom on the part of the student inspires me to find ways to express my deepest understanding and enthusiasm for liberation.

When we see that our tendency to judge ourselves is based on misunderstanding the way things are, we can open to our experience with more wisdom and compassion.
