Revealing the Secret 

Although the national visibility of The Secret: may be on the wane, its true believers are still going strong.

Dalton and Tansey were elated when The Secret rose to national popularity in 2006. Meet-up groups sprang up throughout the Bay Area, and people began flocking for Dalton's services. Fortune had suddenly graced him with a burgeoning network of like-minded souls. After attending several MasterMind-style groups in the East Bay, Dalton launched one at his house in Concord. For several months, many of his 54 members kept showing up after other such groups had fizzled out. By now, though, some of those members have gone their separate ways. Still, Dalton and Tansey say they're in it for the long haul. They're hoping for another endorsement from Oprah. Dalton still sits in his living room for two hours every Saturday morning, even if nobody comes to join him. After all, said Tansey, it's important to keep the faith: "You never say, 'The group is gonna go,'" she assured. "You say: 'We'll always have this group.'"
