This is a mindful and reflective take on the traditional cat's cradle, using the string game to inspire mental calmness. Mindful String Games includes a continuous string and an instructional booklet with imaginative illustrations and step-by-step instructions for playing 15 games and finding mental focus in each one. The string games, which have evocative names like Three Diamonds, The Celtic Knot, and The Butterfly, are organised into three sections: easy games to do on your own, complex games to do on your own, and sequences to do with a friend. The instructional booklet also gives guidance on relaxing and clearing your mind. Ultimately, the game is based on the idea that by focusing on your hand motions and movement patterns, you will find stillness in your thoughts.
