Samantha Stephenson, singer and percussionist of the globetrotting Steampunk Folk Cabaret duo Frenchy and the Punk, will be conducting a panel on reinventing your life Steampunk-style.

Samantha has been touring with Frenchy and the Punk for over 10 years. Her path to her present life was not a direct one. She not only has experience in the world of dance; having studied dance since the age of 4, exercise training; as a certified aerobics instructor, the healing arts; as a certified Polarity Therapy practitioner and the visual arts but once led a life in the corporate realm after earning her Masters in Business Administration. Her journey has taken many twists and turns with the added element of having emigrated from Europe and she understands full well the meaning of transforming your life and finding the courage to walk your true path.

Through sharing her personal journey and at times mixing in principles of energy work, guided meditation/creative visualization and discussion, this panel delves into how what may have attracted you to Steampunk can be used as a metaphor for your life. Come explore the possibility of taking a more active role in shaping and reinventing your present by tuning into what you always wanted your life to be and what you envision it could be in the future.
