def: the awareness that comes from intentionally focusing one's attention on this moment without judgement
Mindfulness is an evidence-based skill that was brought to research through the University of Massachusetts’ Medical Center by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979. Mindfulness can benefit everyone, including those who are trying to manage stress, people with medical conditions like fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease, chronic pain, and depression, addiction and anyone looking to enhance their wellbeing. According to the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical Center, Mindfulness can help you “learn how to take better care of yourself through the interplay of mind and body - and mobilizing your own inner resources for coping, growing and healing.”

Tanji has had her own mindfulness practice for many years and is passionate about sharing the benefits with others, especially her clients and community! She trained in and working with stress management, effective communication, trauma, and addiction. She received her mindfulness training through The University of Massachusetts' Medical School for Mind-Body Medicine in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for adults and teaches mindfulness for stress management and communication at Intermountain Health Care's LiVeWell Center in Provo, Chateau Recovery in Midway, community classes in Wasatch County, and privately as well. Tanji also teaches adolescent courses and has received training in two different mindfulness for adolescent programs; Stressed Teen Workshop and Learning to Breathe. She offers a free weekly guided meditation on Zoom as well.
"I thoroughly enjoyed taking the MBSR class with Tanji. I feel energized by the training which whet my appetite for furthering my meditation practice. As a new meditator, I was initially concerned that I might hold others in the group back, but that did not happen at all. The class lesson was very well prepared each week and covered the whole curriculum in an orderly, thorough manner, while at the same time allowing each participant the opportunity for individual questions and comment. Tanji is highly skilled and experienced and offered many resources for outside learning. She is a very gentle soul who exemplifies a soothing nature within herself and invites others to experience the same. I highly recommend this course and Tanji Wolfert."
"I highly recommend the 8-week MBSR course. You won’t want to miss a single lesson. Tanji makes learning MBSR so worth your time. Mindfulness truly is, 'the awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.'”
"I loved that there wasn't just a "one size fits all" approach, but rather the chance to explore a customized, personalized way to deepen your own mindfulness practice through the program, no matter what level of formal meditation training or practice you'd already had. Learning online with Tanji was great as it actually helped me identify the right environment for my on-going home practice."
