Author brings tale to Port Dou­glas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A WOMAN who once had a tal­ent for self­s­ab­o­tage and par­ty­ing is bring­ing her story to Port Dou­glas, by pre­sent­ing her book Sex, Drugs and Med­i­ta­tion. The mem­oir is the in­cred­i­ble true story of a woman who man­aged to turn her life around through medi- tation. Through the aid of ther­apy and the anony­mous pro­grams, Mary-Lou Stephens man­aged to over­come a tricky child­hood, drama school, drug and al­co­hol ad­dic­tion, the lure of per­form­ing in late-night gigs and a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of poor taste in men. She landed her dream job as a broad­caster for ABC and life was look­ing good un­til her new boss started.

Mary-Lou was de­ter­mined to avoid more ther­apy and des­per­ate to find a way to cope with a toxic work en­vi­ron­ment, she signed her­self up for a 10-day med­i­ta­tion re­treat that re­quired to­tal si­lence and a lot of sit­ting cross-legged with a bunged knee and limited flex­i­bil­ity. Mary-Lou is bring­ing her wickedly hu­mor­ous story to While­away Book­shop and Cafe on Sun­day May 26 at 10am.
