Gwyneth Paltrow is back with another edition of GOOP, her email newsletter about "nourish[ing] the inner aspect." This week, she turns to various "thinkers" like Deepak Chopra, an Episcopal priest and a local psychologist to answer a question about a person's nature. Gwyneth explains: "I am interested in spiritual disciplines within different religions and schools of thought. I thought it would be inspiring to periodically ask a question to a group of thinkers from various traditions on the subjects that often confound me." Up next week: vegan pancakes, tuna sammies and a ten-minute dinner. [GOOP; Previously]
