    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.

    From the Mountains of East Tennessee, Southern Gospel Music fills the air and is the home of The Kingdom Heirs, one of Southern Gospel Music’s top Male Quartets. The group started performing in local churches and concert halls and as their music and message spread to a wider audience, so did their popularity and demand. Later in 1982 they began singing at the Silver Dollar City theme park, which is now Dollywood. In 1986 when the theme park took on their new name, The Kingdom Heirs were asked to become the resident gospel group and now this year, both The Kingdom Heirs and Dollywood will be celebrating 33 years. Not only are they one of Dollywood’s favorites, but a favorite to millions everywhere. Preshow dinner starting at 5:30pm.

India is a challenge to the senses, to the mind and to everything we take for granted. If you come to terms with her nearly infinite diversity, her stunning vitality and her in-your-face energy, you will learn a great deal about yourself. In the process, you will learn a great deal about the rest of humanity. Presented by: Rick Ray

I doubt that many of you have ever visited Tibet in person unless you are a mountain climber. Tibet is a region on the Tibetan Plateau in Asia. It is the traditional homeland of the Tibetan people as well as other ethnic groups such as Monpa, Qiang and Lhoba peoples and is now also inhabited by considerable numbers of Han Chinese and Hui people.
