My name is Jackie White and I would like to welcome you to Inspirations Positive Living Group. I have run ‘Inspirations’ since April 2013.The objective of our group is to bring some balance, calm, laughter, joy, harmony, love and peace to what can sometimes appear to be the opposite of that in our world. To realise there are many wonderful alternatives for dealing with life and what may work for some may well be different for others. In coming along to hear all the varied speakers we have at Inspirations I feel it can help you become the more authentic you. To realise how important You are in your own right not because of what you can do for others but to see the gifts within yourself. I delight in hearing the different speakers and topics each week.
We have also had The wonderful Robert Holden speak for us on five occasions now. He has been my Inspiration and coach of many years now.
Robert travels the world regularly and so I am absolutely humbled and grateful he gives his time for us.
David Hamilton did a live zoom link with us in March 2020.
Other well known speakers that have come to us is Diana Cooper & Tim Whild, Tim Wheater, David Wells and Sue Stone.
We have run many workshops over the years including two with well known and loved artist Patrick Gamble. The next one booked for November 2019.
We have also run day trips to Longleat for their Christmas Lights, Stanstead Hall for their open days. Isle Of Wight, Glastonbury for the Illuminated Carnival and Weston Super Mare. Canterbury day at ‘A Quiet Place’
So this is a very active group that I hope you will like to be a part of. There is always a warm welcome for everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to see what we are about and hope to meet you at one of our events in the near future.
Growing up I enjoyed a wonderful family home life with my Dad, Mum and two sisters.
My Beloved Dad passed in August 1983.
Married Joe White and went on to have two sons Joseph and James.
I broke my leg and for the first time ever I think, I had time to watch day time TV and discovered Oprah Winfrey, while my marvellous Mum Pam Loader took care of my family and me. Oprah introduced me to some of the world’s most inspirational people. At the time it didn’t feel like a blessing but in breaking my leg it gave me the time to stop my life for a few months and I began to realize it was actually an absolute blessing.
I started to read books by Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Gary Zukav, Dr Phil, Cheryl Richardson, Abraham Hicks; the list goes on. All of these people helped me to lead a calmer, happier life, for my family and myself.
I saw an old episode of Oprah Winfrey with guest Robert Holden. I had never heard of Robert Holden before but discovered he originally comes from Winchester about 20 miles from where I live and he is a Happiness Professor. He asked the audience to score 5 statements on that show and my answers surprised me, from all the books I had read I felt my answers should have been far better than they were if I was honest.
I went on to book a Coaching Happiness Course with Robert in London in June of 2010.
I ran my first six week Happiness Course along with a friend..
April 2013 Started running Inspirations Positive Living Group.
I was asked if I would like to take over the Positive Living Group in Southampton. It had only been running for 5 weeks but for personal reasons my friend could not continue.
Since then I have held weekly meetings with different speakers every week always sharing inspirational, positive and uplifting stories with us and motivating a more positive way of viewing life.
