By now, you've likely heard that it's the end of an era: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have officially split. As our sister site Racked National reveals, the web-crashing news was publicized by the couple via a Goop blog post titled "Conscious Uncoupling." The piece opens with their plea for privacy and ends with a message from Dr. Habib Sadeghi, the LA-based holistic healer we first introduced you to here.
Dr. Sadeghi and his wife Dr. Sherry Sami inspired Paltrow's title for the post, which refers to their alternative concept of divorce. "The truth is, the only thing any of us have is today," the duo writes. "Beyond that, there are no guarantees. The idea of being married to one person for life is too much pressure for anyone." Interesting. Read a longer excerpt here and stop by Dr. Sadeghi's Sawtelle clinic if you're in need of some Goop-approved healing.
