IT’S BEEN EASY TO JUST EYE ROLL at Gwyneth Paltrow over the past few years for her steadfast commitment to building up Goop – a company that was once sued for claiming $66 jade eggs would help cleanse your vagina. (Clue: they won’t.) But as the Goop Summit hit the UK last week, it’s tempting to wonder whether she was on to something after all.OK, there were energy studios and sound-baths – as well as £4,500 ticket packages – but also, a host of super-fans believing anything that makes you feel a bit calmer in this crazy world might be worth a try. On page 36, Laura Craik analyses the cult of Goop – and the £3.3 trillion wellness genre it capitalises on. @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

over to you...

WHAT’S YOUR TYPE? I totally agree with Susannah Taylor about finding your yoga type (Healthy(ish)!, 25 June). I’ve been a yoga devotee for 15 years now and a good teacher is key – some in gym classes can be a little too formula-driven; yoga is about working to your personal limit. I now find some of the online apps very good as well. My message is to try all the yoga resources out there. Lesley LET’S KEEP TALKING Theresa May’s plans to champion the issue of mental health is an amazing step forward (25 June). Those in the public eye have huge opportunities to highlight issues and lead through example. The soon-to-be ex-PM has the world’s attention in terms of her next steps, so choosing to take this particular agenda forward could help…

letter of the week

LEAP OF FAITH After eight years of IVF, two miscarriages, a devastating stillbirth and an emergency hysterectomy, we are expecting a baby in a few weeks via an incredible surrogate mother, who we’ve built a friendship with. While UK surrogacy laws urgently need to change, we wanted to do the process here as we intend to maintain a relationship with our surrogate and her family. Sophie (Things you only know if… the UK’s surrogacy laws have failed you, 18 June) is painfully spot on – UK surrogacy agreements are not worth the paper they are written on, which is scary and requires all parties to take a huge leap of faith and trust each other. Name withheld…

“Celebrate Pride, but when will the prejudice end?” Prince William revealed last week that he’d ‘fully support’ his child if they were gay. This should be obvious, but it’s significant that he’s the first royal to spell it out. As Pride parades kick off around the UK, it’s a brilliant time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, but it doesn’t mean the fight is over. Straight people don’t need to check who’s around before kissing their partner, but recent homophobic attacks show there’s still a depressingly real danger for same-sex couples. Prince William went on to admit he’d worry about the prejudice his child might face if they were to come out – showing how far there is still to go in terms of acceptance.…

my deep, dark secret (and why it’s a problem at weddings)

IT’S TIME I CAME OUT. It’s overdue because – honestly? It’s been years since I first glimpsed my true nature. Decades! But, at last: I am ready! Emboldened by Lucie Love Island – she who prefers the company of men to women because, she says, ‘girls are drama’ – I feel I can finally be true to who I am, which is to say: not really a Girl’s Girl (or a Woman’s Woman, or whatever the appropriate terminology is). It is a difficult thing to cop to, in the modern climate. A tacit rejection of girl gangs and squad goalz and all-female celebrity book groups and Twitter feminism and Goop… But it is (as the Love Islanders would say) what it is. Rather: I am what I am – a woman…
