Don Jackson is a Los Angeles, California-based author, spiritualist, and motivational speaker.
His new book, Prodigal, is a work of prescriptive nonfiction intended to awaken audiences to fresh and, at times, controversial perspectives on what it means to be a man of God, the good, the bad, and the ugly of mainstream churches and church leaders (particularly within the Black community), and self-guided spirituality.
In today's day and age, a clear gap and stigma pertaining to spiritualism, as well as spiritual awareness & self-guided spirituality – in conjunction with religion, is a glaringly visible factor.
It is an evident part of human existence to align with spiritual well-being and Don Jackson's brand, 'Prodigal', precisely focuses on that.
Don Jackson has overcome numerous adversities and, along the way, discovered his version of spirituality and growth.
His book identifies the often toxic nature of mainstream churches, particularly in how congregants fall into the habit of worshiping their church leaders rather than God.
Don believes that God exists within all of us and wants people, particularly the Black community, to embrace this belief to allow for heightened spiritual awareness and growth.
