About Face Charlotte

About Face Charlotte is dedicated to cultivating kindness, compassion and connection through photography, story-telling and community engagement. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey, there are 147,989 people in Mecklenburg County living in poverty. People whose world consists only of survival, and who have never experienced what it feels like to be loved. The mission of About Face Charlotte is to share the stories of some of these invisible neighbors, and to share the stories of those that serve. These are the kinds of stories that connect people to people, and help us all remember to care for each other.

Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), (also known as Buddhi Yoga) or the “discipline of action” is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, Karma Yoga is the science of achieving perfection in action. Selfless action and service to others are emphasized in this type of yoga. Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. If you have a favorite charity, that you would like to see Be Yoga feature, please email Michelle Seymour, michelle@beyogaclt.com.

Happy spring! The first day of spring is only a few weeks away, and so is the daylight savings time change – that means more light and warmth to be grateful for in our days. We’re grateful for each of our students, and for the supportive yoga community here in Charlotte. Every 2 months we make a difference for a local non-profit charity or cause, and we’re really excited about our latest karma partner. In March and April we are partnering with About Face Charlotte.

This organization helps people connect to their hearts, and provides pathways to charitable action in our local community. That’s powerful, and that’s where their “Blessing Box” campaign steps in. The Blessing Box campaign is a fun and practical way to come together to help grow compassion in our Charlotte community. It works like this – when you perform an act of kindness, you write it down on the provided slips of paper and place it in the Blessing Box. When all the Blessing Boxes from across the city are full, About Face Charlotte will take these boxes and interlock them, forming a huge Wall of Compassion. This wall will be publicly displayed as a symbol of our city’s commitment to kindness and compassion. The final stage of the project will be to take all the colored strips of paper and weave them together into a large piece of public art. People from all across this city will come together to make this piece of art, cutting and pasting and working side by side, sharing and talking with people they normally would never meet. The piece of art will literally be built from acts of kindness, and will send a message to ourselves and the world that we are committed to engaging with each other with kindness and compassion.
