About the Organizer

Daniel O’Hara started as a stockbroker at the age of 19 and worked for many years as a financial consultant (investment banking and bringing five companies public).  Daniel O’Hara has experienced the stresses and realities of life.  He is relatable and has developed a unique teaching style that is easy to follow, witty, and leaves students energized and educated.

Working in business gave Mr. O’Hara a foundation to explore, test, and integrate the practice of meditation and a special form of bio-energetic medicine known as Pranic Healing. The stress of commodity trading had created many obstacles that these techniques overcame, such as headaches, asthma, digestive issues and high blood pressure.  Daniel O’Hara started teaching Pranic Healing in late 1994 until 2010.  As a Senior
Certified Pranic Healer and Certified Instructor he taught in nine states and helped develop nine instructors, many of whom have gone on to touch, empower, and heal thousands of people nationwide. 

While practicing Pranic Healing, he consulted with many well-known professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, UFC, MLB and Pro Tennis. Other groups he has taught the technique to include medical doctors and corporate executives (and on one favorite occasion, a group of nuns at Notre Dame).  Daniel is a keynote speaker.  He has spoken on multiple health and wellness panels and has been featured on radio shows such as Mark & Brian, KFI, Ken & Bob.

Residing in Irvine, California, Daniel continues to work as an executive and is authoring three series of books.  His first book, “Buddha Fields” was published in 2014.  Daniel later published “Buddha Fields for Addictions” and “Christ’s Castle” in 2016.  In 2017 he published “Krishna’s Kingdom.”  More series’ books are being completed in 2019. Daniel has a passion for SCUBA diving and has an extensive martial arts background with three black belts he earned while studying with over a dozen instructors over the course of 30 years.  He has published articles in Inside Kung Fu and Qi Journal and has been interviewed and written about in OC Weekly.    He is a rare blend of spiritual intensity and grounded practicality. To point, his personality has been described as a combination of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tony Robbins, and that of a Navy SEAL. He is an accomplished national speaker, and is consistently empowering and educating those around him, while at the same time cracking them up. He has been leading a weekly meditation group for the past 19 years, which was voted “Best Mediation Group In OC” by OC Weekly
