Daron Larson helps people feel more at home in their lives by encouraging them to habitually notice ordinary experiences in liberating ways. He has been practicing mindfulness daily to disrupt his own default narrative mode since his first silent meditation retreat in October 2002.
He teaches mindfulness practice as attention training, using the challenges and benefits of physical fitness to help navigate similar aspects of developing attentional skills. Growing scientific evidence shows that consistent mindfulness practice can improve baseline levels of self-awareness, contentment, and compassion. Attentional Fitness Training is a natural, science-backed addition to the strategies currently available for healthier living.
Daron demystifies contemplative concepts, customizes mindfulness exercises, and develops practical programs to target attention-related challenges and interests.
As a parent, social worker, information specialist, and librarian, Daron has enjoyed identifying relevant resources to help people more effectively navigate personal and professional challenges.
In addition to coaching individuals, he has facilitated classes and workshops for JamesCare for Life, Mount Carmel Health, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Employee Wellness, Upper Arlington LifeLong Learning, Dublin Community Recreation Center, IGS Energy, Otterbein University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Shinzen Young’s Basic Mindfulness Home Practice Program, Marion Correctional Institution, as well as other businesses and organizations.
