GREENEVILLE, Tenn. Wayne Lee brings his mix of hypnosis and inspiration to Tusculum College Monday, Aug. 29, in the kick-off event of the 2016-17 Acts, Arts, Academia performance and lecture series.

Lee's performance is at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building on the Greeneville campus. The Acts, Arts, Academia performance and lecture series is a program of Tusculum College Arts Outreach and supported by the late Dr. Sam Miller in memory of Agnes Ault Miller, Hearts for the Arts, the Tennessee Arts Commission, Arts Outreach and generous donors and volunteers.

In his presentation, "Set your GPS for Success," Lee challenges audiences to set their "Great Programmable Subconscious" to reach their goals. While keeping his audiences in stitches, Lee blends in encouraging and thought-provoking points in his presentation.

Over the years, Lee has used hypnosis to entertain, excite and mesmerize audiences across North America in thousands of shows and presentations and helped people to explore the unlimited potential of the human mind. Beginning with a childhood fascination with magic and visualization, Lee's driving passion is to help people discover their potential, and acting on that passion has resulted in his opportunities to make presentations worldwide. As a former five-time Canadian amateur wrestling champion and a classroom instructor, Lee has practiced what he teaches.

The Acts, Arts, Academia series continues Tuesday, Sept. 30, with a lecture by Dr. Deborah Bryan, associate professor of art at Tusculum College. "Looking: Art Around You" is presented at 7 p.m. in the Behan Arena Theatre on the lower level of the Annie Hogan Byrd Building (side entrance).
