About AJ


Meditation and Mindful-Based Programs can feel like uncharted territory if you are unfamiliar with these powerful practices. I’m inviting you to pause for a moment, take a deep breath, and know that I’m here to support you every step of the way. Having been in the field for over three decades, I bring credibility, dedication, and passion to what I do. More than an educator, I’m an advocate of Meditation and Mindful-Based Programs because I know just how effective they are. I have witnessed the benefits firsthand in my life and in the lives of my clients.

While there is still work to be done, today we have access to extensive research that demonstrates these practices can exert a positive effect on our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Herbert Benson, MD, Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School spearheaded research on meditation as early as 1975 and coined the term “The Relaxation Response”. Early in my career, I was introduced to Dr. Benson’s work and have had the pleasure of attending his conferences at Harvard Medical School the last 11 years. I find myself particularly intrigued by the latest research coming out of Harvard documenting that Meditation can produce experience-based structural alterations in the brain and may also slow down age related atrophy in certain areas of the brain. The data showed changes in the brain after just eight weeks.

The bottom line is this… Meditation and Mindful-Based Programs have benefits for children, adults, business leaders, parents, and grandparents… at every stage of life.

If you’re ready today to learn these life-changing practices, then I am here to guide you, step-by-step. There's no greater value than being assisted by a live, seasoned teacher. If you’re not in my area - that’s okay! I offer live training via video conferencing, too.

And, if you’re here because you were guided by instinct or are just simply curious, then welcome! Look around, check out my online articles at AJ’s Notebook, our FAQ’s, the Research, and sign-up for my newsletter, Fresh from AnJenette. I’m here to teach you when you’re ready.

While a regular meditation practice can feel intimidating, the truth is that even short daily sessions can greatly benefit your life. I will show you how!
