Gwyneth and the site’s chief content officer, Elise, will host the summit on June 29, a day devoted to wellness, held on the same weekend as Glastonbury. 

A note from Goop reads: ‘[There will be] chats with cutting-edge doctors and scientists, thought leaders, and some of the women (and men) who inspire us the most. 

‘There’ll be restorative classes and intimate workshops—for the spirit, for the body, for the mind, and for beauty—plus our signature retail hall, food, and drinks.’

Bargain: The Weekend Pass includes a stay at London’s Kimpton Fitzroy hotel, which is currently booked up through the month of June but costs around £289 a night in May

Similar events have taken place in New York and LA but for smaller groups of about 200 people.

Goop writes: ‘The festivities kick off on Friday afternoon and continue with a cocktail party, private workouts, the summit itself on Saturday, a private dinner after, in-room gifts, and more.

‘It’s definitely a social experience, whether you book your ticket with some friends or are looking to make some new ones.’

People booking are told it is ‘highly recommended’ to book before Monday if you are planning to come.’ 

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Gwyneth Paltrow for further information.

Earlier this month, Gwyneth was encouraging fans to embrace their inner ‘sex appeal’ with a very racy lingerie set. 

The actress sells the dry clean-only bra, knickers and garter set for a staggering £563 ($575)

The cupless ‘Frame Bra’, which leaves the breasts totally exposed, costs £245 ($250) alone, while the ‘Welcome Back Panty’ – featuring ‘sexy straps spotlighting your best assets’ – will set you back £171 ($175) and the ‘Garter Belt’ a further £147 ($150).  

The site previously claimed its Jade Egg and Rose Quartz Eggs – intended to be placed in the vagina – could balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles and improve bladder control. 

The company reached a $145,000 (£112,000) settlement over the unproven claims.

A Goop statement said the settlement acknowledged no liability on the company’s part and addressed only advertising, not the products themselves. 

GOOP CLAIMS THAT HAVE CAUSED CONTROVERSY

VAGINAL EGGS

Goop claimed its Jade Egg and Rose Quartz Eggs – intended to be placed in the vagina – could balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles and improve bladder control. 

Earlier this year, the company reached a $145,000 (£112,000) settlement over the unproven claims.

A Goop statement said the settlement acknowledged no liability on the company’s part and addressed only advertising, not the products themselves.

VAGINAL STEAMING

In 2015, Gwyneth recommended a vaginal steam at the Tikkun Holistic Spa in Santa Monica.

‘It is an energetic release – not just a steam douche – that balances female hormone levels,’ she wrote on Goop. ‘If you’re in LA, you have to do it. ‘

After the post, gynecologist Dr Jen Gunter Gunter criticised the practice.

‘Steam is probably not good for your vagina. Herbal steam is no better and quite possibly worse,’ she said. 

BODY VIBES HEALING STICKERS

Goop initially claimed that its stickers are made with ‘a crystalline, carbonized radio-frequency material’ culled from spacesuits.

They reportedly ‘fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety.’

The stickers have 'become a major obsession around' Goop headquarters, the company said

Goop also received criticism over its Body Vibes healing stickers (above), which it claimed could ‘help clear skin by reducing inflammation and boosting cell turnover’

The products – which sell for up to $120 for a set of 24 – can also ‘help clear skin by reducing inflammation and boosting cell turnover,’ Goop reported, quoting the brand’s co-founders, Madison De Clercq and Leslie Kritzer.

However, Butex-NASA official Mark Shelhamer – a one-time chief scientist in the space program’s human research division – begged to differ.

‘Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up,’ he told Gizmodo. ‘If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed? What a load of BS this is.’ 

CRYSTAL HEALING

Last year, Goop posted a feature hailing ‘The 8 Essential Crystals’ as an aid to help a host of psychological and physical problems including premenstual syndrome (PMS), infertility and even trauma from sexual abuse.

Written by ‘certified shamanic energy medicine practitioner’ Colleen McCann, the article includes a plug for a ‘goop-exclusive starter kit, inspired by a shaman’s medicine bag’ for $85 (£63.91).

After it was published, the web page was amended with a footnote explaining that an earlier version of the story stated that the benefits of the semi-precious gemstone carnelian were presented as fact, when they are the ‘opinion of fans of the product’.
