Aurore Leigh Barrett
Las Vegas, Nevada. United States
My life’s work has been to help children and adults learn how to “shine”. To bring forth the light that is within all of us. As we let our own light shine we give others permission to do the same. There is no such thing as being humble, this does not serve the world. We must learn to give permission to our “dreamz” and to learn how we can grow as creative productive human beings. Everyone deserves to live a life of enchantment, a life of mystical, magical moments.
