Healthy Mind, Healthy Community, Healthy World — Interview with Marie Jackson

Local hero Marie Jackson.


One of the enjoyable aspects of administering Our Voice: Politics Albury-Wodonga has been the opportunity it has given me to interview all kinds of interesting people from across the local community.  One of those interesting people is today’s guest, Marie Jackson.

Marie is a local legend, best known through her role as a much-loved DRU Yoga instructor in Wodonga.  She has been nominated for Australian of the Year for her community work and has a wealth of wisdom to share on many matters spiritual, emotional and practical.

In this interview I pick Marie’s brain for pearls of wisdom on topics including healthy living, decision making and relationships, travel and cross-cultural understanding, and the importance of community.  We cover a lot of terrain in this discussion, but it is a fascinating journey that highlights the importance of cultivating a balanced state of mind for one’s own well-being, as well as that of the people around us and the wider world community.
