Meet Rev. Mary Azima Jackson
Rev. Mary Azima Jackson (1945-2023) was an elder who had devoted herself to helping others learn how to live an extraordinary life – and how to face their mortality without fear.
Her wisdom was hard won, having been diagnosed with an auto-immune diagnosis in her youth and, more recently, with stage four cancer. In both cases, she has been able to find healing in unusual places.
She believed that when you come to a crisis point in your health, whether it’s a sickness, end of life, or a pandemic, it’s a message to wake up. In this way, difficult life changing events become opportunities for growth when we face them fully.
One of her main avenues to healing was the power of music. She found herself spontaneously writing songs that connect her with something greater than herself and she shared her music to support others with their own healing.
She was an ordained Interfaith Minister with a Doctorate in Ministry, a Masters in Divinity from Yale and is also recognized as a Vedic Master. She also worked for many years as a chaplain in a hospital, providing spiritual support at the bedsides of those in the process of passing.
While her faith was not bound to a single tradition, she believes deeply in the value of ritual and how it helps us make our lives sacred. To be in conversation with Mary Azima was to experience the light that shines through her being and uplifts and inspires all those blessed enough to meet her.
Rev Mary Azima Jackson, MDiv, DMin, MS was here as an expert guide towards your higher consciousness. Through her core life experiences of Crohn’s disease and fourth stage cancer, Azima had been led from darkness into the light through an angelic presence that she shared for decades with others. Through her songs, words, and presence she served as a conduit for the angelic light and love that holds us all — both in this life and into the next.
