Experience the Extraordinary

Craig Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes!

Using total audience participation, Karges dazzles the mind as he challenges you to question what is real and what is unreal. You don’t just watch this presentation, you experience it! He baffles, mystifies and thoroughly entertains the audience and then, at the end of the presentation, when he has them in the palm of his hand, he delivers a powerful message concerning the potential of the human mind. “Experience the Extraordinary” is business theatre and motivational entertainment at its best!

Ignite Your Intuition

In a shift of focus from entertainment to empowerment, Craig Karges created “Ignite Your Intuition.” This one-of-a-kind presentation does more than simply amaze and entertain. Participants learn memory techniques; their intuition is tested; and they are taught how to tap into their subconscious minds to enhance creativity and decision making. “Ignite Your Intuition” is a hands-on, interactive session that awakens participants to the possibility of reaching their full potential while experiencing greater personal power and achieving success more easily.
