Over the summer I had the opportunity to view a film titled “The Secret”. Long story short, it is about some type of New Age philosophy centering on visualizing what you want and you will get it. It is based on something called “The Laws of Attraction”.
The production was a little cheesy and quite reminiscent of some of the current History Channel documentaries on spirituality based topics like The Da-Vinci Code, Nostradamus et. al. Reading the current mailbag article brought it to mind.
This film was presented to me and a group in a clinical setting (ok, it was a mental hospital, the group was an assortment of addicts and psych patients) by mental health professionals.
I tried all manner of searches in the SDMB archive and could not find any reference. Has this been discussed here before? Could anyone spare me a link?
If this has not been discussed here before has anyone else heard of it? Read the books? What is the general take on this (personally I remain a skeptic)?
