Elementary Mindfulness Club Creates Prayer Flags


 Immaculate Conception Cathedral School's elementary Mindfulness Club is pictured with the prayer flags they created to hang on the school's campus.  The flags signify that the wind carries our good wishes and prayers throughout the school, our city and the world.  Taught by religion and mindfulness teacher Suzanne Martin '78, mindfulness classes help students develop concentration skills and self-awareness. Martin, who also presents mindfulness workshops for teachers, received training in the mindfulness curriculum developed by Mindful Schools in Oakland, California and introduced the curriculum to ICCS in the 2012-13 school year.  ICCS is one of the few Memphis-area schools that offers a mindfulness curriculum.
