Spend a morning with nationally celebrated playwright Sharon Bridgforth, multidisciplinary artist Miré Regulus, teaching artist Aimee Bryant, and parent facilitator Erin Walsh, to learn how small creative practices can cultivate joyful resilience in challenging times.
September 30, 2023 from 10 am – 12 pm at First Universalist Church of Minneapolis. Free childcare provided.
The pandemic era has been a time of strain, grief, and transformation for parents. While parents have been encouraged to return to “normal,” many are experiencing burnout or exhaustion and are yearning for healing grounded in the realities of this moment. This event is designed to support this need with art, connection, and joy.
What can I expect?
Award-winning artist Sharon Bridgforth will pull cards from her dem Blessings Deck and ask, “What does Infinite Love want us to receive right now?” Based on the cards, a panel will offer insights and practices for the parenting journey. Parents will experience song, connection, poetry, and creative prompts and leave with their own dem Blessings Deck.

Aimee Bryant, Actor, Vocalist, and Teaching Artist
Miré Regulus, Multidisciplinary Artist and Parent
Erin Walsh, Speaker, Parent, Facilitator

I started thinking about my eight year old self and I was wishing I could say things to that child that might help them on the journey. So I started writing what I began to call ‘Blessings’ to my eight year old child self. And then as I kept doing it I began to feel that maybe actually the child was telling me things that I need to Know. So I am excited to offer dem Blessings and be in conversation with them and with you with them. I usually just shuffle and pull a card. My question is always ‘What Blessings does infinite love want us to receive right now?’
If you said yes to at least three of the above, this event is right for you.
