Saroj Pathak and Dr Jerina Kapoor, writing from Pallium India – USA inform us of the first meeting of the year of the Pallium core group at San Jose, California on Saturday 25th January, 2014.
The meeting celebrated the award of a mini–fellowship by Stanford University on Successful Aging and End of Life Care, a proud achievement for Pallium!
The meeting also developed goals and strategy for 2014 for Pallium India – USA. Pallium India – USA’s mission statement now reads ‘Healthy Aging and a life with Compassionate Care and Dignity for the South Asian community living with serious or advanced illnesses, whether in USA or India’.
Participants had a wonderful opportunity to listen to a motivational talk by Swami Prasannatmanandaji on the subject of ‘Aging and Spirituality’. He shared some inspiring thoughts and there was good dialogue. Swamiji said “Don’t believe that you are serving others, you are privileged that they are giving you the opportunity to serve”
