Topics Include: Understand more about depression and how to treat it spiritually Find out the causes of depression Depression is a very serious condition. This class is not designed to be a cure-all for everyone, but it is hoped it will help inspire with a spiritual approach. Many times people with depression will feel helpless to change their current state, as though there is no point or that no-one can help. Depression often follows anger and helplessness. We quite often are literally beating ourselves up. Many times people that suffer from depression are extremely intelligent, very sensitive and compassionate people. Their sense of helplessness parallels the same spiral people suffering from anger travel into resentment and stress related illnesses (mentioned in class 22- Anger).
