It influences whether you feel powerless or powerful, colors how you define success and happiness, underpins every action you take. When you wake up to the stories at work in your life you suddenly step into the position of power. Story stops being what defines you and becomes your ally. 365 ALIVE! Is a wake-up call to the power and practice of story.

Praise for 365 ALIVE!


"Mary Alice has created an accessible fifty-two week journey into the center of the storyteller’s art: how to understand and use your story to create the well-lived life and change the status quo. Part inspiration, part workbook, you will learn what takes storytellers, story activists, and change agents years to learn: how to change your world through the power of narrative.” 

-- Mark Jenkins, Host of 1,001 Friday Nights, North America's longest running storytelling open mic event

“Stories shape how we see the world and find our place within it. In this engaging multimedia combination of philosophy and application, Mary Alice Arthur helps writers and storytellers refine life experience into life narratives that help us navigate these times. Bravo for this incredible toolbox!” 

-- Christina Baldwin, author of Storycatcher: Making Sense of our Lives through the Power and Practice of Story



365 ALIVE! takes us on a journey into the richness and depths of working with story – your own, the communities you are part of and beyond. The labour, love and practical wisdom that went into this book make it an outstanding contribution to the field. A go-to guide to develop and hone your skills and tools in working with stories, developing your practice and growing your impact. A wonderful book!”

-- Jacques Chlopczyk, Beyond Storytelling Network


“This book recognizes that our story is not a string of words, but it constitutes the basis of our freedom and capacity to own our experience and construct our future. Mary Alice is a prophetic voice, and this book is an easy entry into a world of awareness and collective touch that we all are actively seeking.”    

-- Peter Block, friend, citizen of Cincinnati & author of Community: The Structure of Belonging
