The GRD Center for Medicine and Humanology presents Overcoming Cold Depression.

Yogi Bhajan cautioned that as we transition into the new age through 2038, humanity would suffer from a phenomenon he called Cold Depression. Cold Depression is our single biggest challenge as we integrate into the Aquarian Age. It affects vitality of spirit and leads us to take destructive risk and to self-sabotage.  Learn what Cold Depression is, how to identify it and what you need to help your students, clients and yourself overcome its effects.
