The Secret has caused a stir worldwide, especially after the book was published. Some people love it and some may hate it but I does get people thinking differently. Maybe it is to simplistic and maybe its just the way it was always meant to to be. Both Larry King and Oprah has interviewed the teachers from The Secret and this helped create a tipping point in the mainstream media.
I bought the Secret DVD directly from their website soon after I first discovered it in 2006. Shortly after that I attended a talk by Dr John Demartini at Michael Mount Waldorf School and immediately signed up for his Breakthrough Experience seminar. In South Africa the Secret DVD retails for about R400 which is about 50% more than you pay when you order it online. I do not recommend the book because its simply a transcription of the DVD. You can gain much more from viewing the DVD than reading the book.
