HEY MAD HUMANS!
Welcome to the Madness Movement!
This movement centers on embracing our madness; your originality, your creativity, your soulful expression.
To lead our life as only we can; not to live for others.
We are all a little "mad", a little "crazy" and that's a good thing as it makes us who we are and differentiates us from others.
Conformity should not be our end goal.
Madness is not necessarily a bad thing. Sure, in modern times, it's taken on a negative spin but it wasn't always looked at that way.
Yes, mental illness is one side of madness; when the combination of trauma, stress, genetics, and lack of resilience collide.
But, the often overlooked positive side of madness is engaging in creativity, originality, thinking-out-of-the-box and expressing yourself fully to develop deeper relationships.
In other words, our madness is the source of our passion and purpose.
So let's learn to turn down the volume of the external madness out there, and turn up the volume of the creative madness in us.
The Madness Movement is not only a declaration on how to live a more meaningful and passion life, but it's also a free guide and newsletter; a dose of wisdom to live a bigger, bolder, and more prosperous life by transforming your madness energy to bring new opportunities to your life.
Back in the day, philosophers, scientists, and creative thought leaders hinted at the power of our madness. Aristotle, Carl Jung, and so many others talked about its untapped potential.
"No great genius ever existed without a touch of madness"
"Let the light of your madness shine, and it will suddenly dawn on you. Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared, but instead you should give it life..."
Carl G. Jung
"You're only given a little spark of madness. If you lose that, you're nothing."
And now you have the opportunity to see what you're truly capable of by accessing more of your creative and original energy as Dr. Reef Karim has integrated his experience in neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, existentialism and creativity to bring you The Madness Movement.
To discover your genius, you must first explore your madness.
I honor you for taking the time to learn some mad skills to better your life.
WHAT IS MASTER THE MADNESS?
Master the Madness, the methodology behind the Madness Movement, is a call to action; a movement of shifting our energy from stress and conformity to creativity and inspiration.
Every week, I will provide you tips, tools, techniques, products and events that will help you lead a more optimal life. You will learn how to build a sharper mind, get out of your own way, find mental clarity, build stronger relationships, unleash your creativity, discover what makes you unique, and so much more.
If you are a little rebellious, a little crazy, or inspired to do more in life, then this is the place for you.
Our madness energy is the energy that powers our mind; it can be exhausted by stress, uncertainty and conformity, or harnessed into creativity, originality and inspiration.
Are you mad enough to change the world?

DR. REEF KARIM?
My name is Reef Karim.
As a humanistic psychiatrist, transformational scientist, storyteller, and double board-certified physician specializing in human behavior, neuroscience, creativity and addiction...
And as a performing artist, I am familiar with both the darkest corners and the vast creative power of the mind.
I created the Mad Genius program because I know the pain of not maximizing your abilities, of feeling like there’s something missing but not knowing how to change it, of feeling like you’re wasting your time, energy and talent because you have all this potential but it’s not activated.
Of having an important message to share but feeling invisible.
The concept is simple: Change the way you express and communicate to change the way you and your message are received. The ultimate power of transformation lies in how you tell your story to emotionally move people to take action; to follow, join, buy from you and believe in you.
And that requires skills in distinction, disruption, and authentic performance.
To stop presenting. And start performing.
Performance training is not just for entertainers anymore.
"I could write you a prescription, but expanding your mind is way more effective."
I first stumbled upon these Mad Genius principles in the midst of my own personal transformation. Once I saw how well it worked for me, I shared aspects of this method with private clients and patients at my treatment center. Once I saw drastic changes in them, I started sharing this concept on stages all over the world.
I now help people leverage practical insights from neuroscience for mental clarity and idea generation. I teach performance techniques for authentic expression and storytelling. And I guide experts, entrepreneurs, coaches and executives on the power of disruptive message delivery and existential psychology to stand out and prime minds for original thinking.
The most successful leaders are not clones, they are originals.
It’s time for you to be seen and recognized for your abilities and unique perspective.
If you’re ready to let out your Mad Genius, I’m ready to show you how.
And now, the standard
Rarely do you see a scientist and performing artist sharing the same stage, let alone the same mind. But Dr. Reef Karim is an academic by day and creative by night who specializes in connecting the cognitive and creative mind to teaches experts, entrepreneurs, coaches and creative leaders the art of divergent thinking, creative disruption, identity distinction, and performance training to expand our ability to tell our story and express ourselves for high performance in business and life.
Reef is CEO of Madness Inc..and founded the brands Mad Genius and Master The Madness. Dr. Reef served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience for over a decade, published in prestigious medical journals and now speaks on stages all over the world.
Reef’s innovative work has been profiled in Time, Forbes, Business Insider, Oprah.com and he’s been interviewed by Oprah, Larry King, Deepak Chopra, Anderson Cooper and many others. For his groundbreaking work in innovation, medicine and entertainment, Reef was voted one of LA’s Most Fascinating People and one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive (hey, smart is sexy!)
