Resilience Finders ® : Book of Invisible Paths

Resilience Building In A Box

“Resilience Finders is just breathtaking in its potential impact for so many people.”

Natasha Purple - Organisational Consultant and Systemic Coach

This combination of a board game and personal development programme works through the lens of a metaphorical journey and quest, using game design, storytelling, coaching and multi-arts creative exercises.

The toolkit consists of:

A board game, resilience building personal development exercises, a website with downloadable and printable materials, video’s of how to use the toolkit and play the game and a fantasy map. The story adventure consists of a journey across a fantasy land with challenges and tasks to complete along the way and milestones to reach. Players carry a virtual backpack that they fill with resilience through the journey. They collect a toolkit of strategies in the form of personal development exercises to help them make choices and move forward with their lives.

The programme content draws on our understanding of the obstacles people face and the developmental stages we all go through in our lives. Within the safety of the fiction we will focus on confidence and self-esteem building, empathy and a positive mind-sets, fear of failure, stress triggers and how to deal with them and fear of change; building healthy behaviours, better relationships and better communities. The design and content of this programme draws on the team’s extensive in-depth knowledge and over 25 years experience writing and delivering education programmes and creative workshops with both adults and children, in formal and informal learning environments.

Play Makes Us Human:

The bright colourful fun and funny game format is designed to increase mental wellbeing and motivate young people to enjoy themselves, raising Oxytocin levels and giving them a lift. People will have a chance to use their imaginations, escape into an alternative world while addressing their own real life issues and feeling supported along the way.


The beauty of this toolkit is its adaptability. You choose the timeframe, length and structure of the game and pick and mix the personal development exercises that suit your group or class best. You can also play with between 2 or up to 30 people at a time.

Our Mission:

Everybody on board at The Ministry of Imagination has put their creative flair and passion

for imagination into this toolkit, producing ideas and challenges which will improve the

game player’s confidence and day to day life, even after just one game.

We believe resilience is a life skill everybody should hold in order to cope with what life

throws at them: we want to help. Resilience Finders is the perfect solution to a busy, often

stressful and more and more challenging world. It uses creativity and fun to support

personal and societal wellbeing. By providing the tools to grow and flourish in life via an

engaging, inspiring and adventurous narrative, it encourages thought which enriches

minds and empowers lives, setting the scene for life long learning and life changing

personal development.’
