What is YOUR graffiti?
Will you weave a network of fibers on the gas station bathroom mirror? Will you arrange a stone portal at the base of the park bench? Will your poetry grace the back of a napkin at the ice cream take-out window? Will you draw your anatomical heart on the sidewalk at the corner of North and Main? How will you dare to dig deep into your own creative expression and let it loose in the world?
I have a great love of noticing what sounds cool to me but feels scary. I am drawn to pushing edges and daring myself around personally held boundaries. Fear based boundaries. I grow tired of being quiet.
A few months ago I told Umber about this idea. Graffiti. What I wanted to do was to explore a daily practice of unabashed creation. And then I wanted to take whatever was created and place it somewhere in my geographical community. And, I didn’t want to do it alone. I wanted a group of us, writers, artists, seekers, livers, question askers, beauty bringers, introverts and extroverts to all show up in our local community. Maybe named and maybe anonymously. I love social media but I am weary of social media standing in for reality. I want to reground in the actual earth and space around me. I want to spark back into the people and places I can actually see, touch, feel, smell, and breathe in. I want to dive into a different way of creating and being. Umber listened to my idea and agreed whole heartedly, “Hell yes. Me too.” And Resonant Graffiti was born.
So, we simply invite you to join us. We gather together in the name of Creation and Dissemination for one rebel fired week of inspiration and connection. This seven day experience is primarily shared through private website and daily live interactive video (periscoping). During our time together we will daringly split ourselves open and discover what we are moved create each day. And we will emerge - to decorate our own geographical communities with these tangible pieces of our truth.
Whatever your medium may be (poetry, prose, watercolor, silver, nature mandala, fiber, crayons…) we want you to move through the edges of your fear and into the space of daily, truth drenched, meaningful creation. The stuff that makes your own heart flutter and clench.
We want you to use your singular tangible creations to decorate your local community. Put a love story up at the coffee shop. Leave a weaving on the public library bulletin board. Slide a water color under a neighbor’s door. Tape a poem to a telephone pole. Create an installation piece for the bus stop.
Place your voice vision work IN the world. ANNOUNCE YOUR EXISTENCE.
We will also encourage you to share your own resonant graffiti experience with your friends, family, followers and network of magic makers to inspire others. Right work belongs in the world. Creation that taps back into the places we live brings all kinds of energy to our local communities. We are called to brave shifts in the world. You are a bringer. Let’s bring it.
enrollment in Resonant Graffiti includes:
One magical box of tangible goodies designed, created, gathered, and amplified by robin and UmberDove just for this experience.
Daily heartspace rebel writing, instigating and igniting on our private website.
Daily interactive, unedited, real-deal live video (recording viewable for 24 hours).

You are a bringer; you are striving to show up in your life and in the world. You ask questions and listen for answers. You are curious about truth and exploration. You are willing to peel back the layers and discover what lies beneath. You absolutely do not need to be believe you are an artist, writer, or creator to come play this game with us. You do not even have to know what medium you will use. We will provide little sparks to ignite your fire and you will be free to discover what arises, pours forth, drips from the cracks, illuminates the way forward. We embrace imperfection and honor all forms of truth.
