About Don

Don Cummins is an author, transformational speaker, and creator of Awaken, Connect, Transform™ curriculum and coaching method.

Don suffered for decades with the effects of trauma and addiction. These issues resulted in homelessness, damaged relationships, depression and anxiety, and unemployability. Don was repeatedly committed to mental health institutions and experienced extreme incarceration and isolation, having served over twenty years in prison for bank robberies.

But one day, Don had an awakening to his inherent goodness and value. He saw that he was not a horrible person. He saw that he deserved to recover and that he was worth the hard work it would take to do so. So he embarked on a path of recovery, transforming his life in ways that had seemed impossible, experiencing success in relationships, business, leadership and helping others recover.

Don’s story is detailed in his book The Prison Within: A Memoir of Breaking Free.
