Welcome to the Amsterdam Centre for the World Transformation Movement!

Founded by Annemieke Akker and Hendrik Riksen, this Centre is here to support people in the Netherlands and Belgium grow their understanding and appreciation of the scientific explanation of the Human Condition presented in the book FREEDOM: The End of the Human Condition by biologist Jeremy Griffith.

Our planet is in desperate need of the redeeming and transforming explanation of the human condition that is presented in FREEDOM. The understanding has the power to save humanity and transform the lives of all humans into a wonderful state free of the agony of the human condition.

    “This explanation of the Human Condition is something we could not keep to ourselves, and so felt we had to start a Netherlands WTM Centre.”

    Annemieke Akker, Co-founder of the WTM Amsterdam Centre

Annemieke Akker, MSc., is a biologist with a degree from the renowned Free University Amsterdam and a Master’s degree (‘Doctoraal’) in Biological Sciences from the even more prestigious Wageningen University & Research. She has also worked as editor and translator of scientific papers and books, and later on metaphysical work with her husband, Hendrik Riksen, who has worked as an application development manager in engineering plastics.

Hendrikus Gijsbertus Riksen

*17-08-1946 - †17-03-2021

With his health having been deteriorating at an ever increasing rate and over a long period of time, Hendrik very unexpectedly passed away on March 17th, 2021, after a brief stay in hospital. He went fully at peace, reconciled with death and with a fully open heart, the opening of which was considerably speeded up by working on and with the translations of FREEDOM et al., which Hendrik considered to be his and Annemieke’s legacy to The Netherlands. Having worked all his life to make this world a better place, FREEDOM to him was the ultimate way to do so.

We’ve come to know Hendrik as a gentle giant, a pure soul, an inquiring and critical mind, always ready to be of service.

Thank you Hendrik and Annemieke for the incredible job you have done in making all our information available in Dutch, from all your loving friends in the WTM! You will always be in our hearts.

News from WTM Amsterdam


After the translation of FREEDOM was finished, we could finally fully concentrate on the content. After spending months looking at my own shadow in relation to the information, I have come out with an even more determined decision to support the information. So you can critically study the book, question everything, and be strengthened in your belief that this is truly a missing link in the development of humanity, enabling literally anyone to make a very positive turn in life. in the way we think / feel and act!

Hendrik and I are busy with the information every day, either by reading together and discussing what we read, or by editing or translating something (the first version of the translation of FREEDOM on the internet will soon be replaced by the corrected version) and I occasionally help the WTM with work for the translations into other languages, so we stay very 'in contact'. Once a week we read a piece with Jolanda and Fred (founders of WTM Centre Arnhem) and Raf (founder of WTM Centre Antwerp), meet every two weeks (online) and Hendrik is in a chat group with men to discuss the information in relation to everyday life. So there we are now, enjoying budding true Freedom every day more. Most importantly, however, we are both increasingly convinced that this is the information that in fact everyone on this planet should master in order to get out of his/her 'cave' and live 'in the sun'.

There is really nothing better for us to do than to support this information! And our friends are becoming more open when we talk about the human condition. 🙂

These last couple of months have been very quiet, with both of us working on the translations of FREEDOM, the rest of the essays and the FAQ’s, (unfortunately) undisturbed by ANY visitors in person, due to the lockdown related to the Corona virus. We have been thoroughly enjoying nature in its full glory in spring, and of course the clear, clean, blue skies I haven’t seen for at least ten years! Even though our small group of fellow-travellers on the Sunshine Highway wasn’t able to meet in person, almost all of us managed to stay in touch through the (in this regard) fabulous internet and we happily increased our meetings to once a fortnight and ‘meet' with each other in between as well, becoming ever greater friends (or should I say ‘family’?) every time we do so!

Clean blue sky

In the meantime we are awaiting the publication of the translation of FREEDOM, together with more and more people wanting to read the book in their own language, not being able to read English, and even some groups indicating they want to start reading the book together!

Craig Conway, an English actor, did a fabulous interview with Jeremy about FREEDOM, and I’m very happy the video of this interview, or should I say THE Interview, is now available on the website with the translation of the transcript in DUTCH.

And last but not least, and this is great news indeed: there will be a second WTM Centre in The Netherlands opening up very soon, called WTM Centrum Arnhem!!! We can’t wait!

Copies of FREEDOM translated into Dutch

This is Hendrik reading one of our gorgeous books which were handmade from printouts by master bookbinder Frans Koch, for our children and for ourselves. We’re dreaming of the day there will be so many people wanting to read the book that it will be worthwhile to have the book actually printed, which then of course will be done in the proper style of the English original of FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition.

Please sign up here if you are interested in being notified about this, but by all means don’t let that hold you back from printing and/or starting to read it NOW.

Hendrik reading FREEDOM

JUNE 2020

June was a huge milestone for WTM Amsterdam, and in fact the whole WTM, with the first ever translation of FREEDOM — Annemieke and Hendrik’s Dutch translation — uploaded on to the WTM Amsterdam website.

After the translation and styling was finished by Annemieke and Hendrik with publishing support from WTM Sydney, to celebrate they joined a few of the founding WTM members in an online party as the Dutch translation of FREEDOM was uploaded – which you can see in this video!

You will hear Hendrik and Annemieke talk about how translating FREEDOM is the summit of their life so far, a very great privilege and they are going to give bound copies to their children as it is their emotional and spiritual legacy and inheritance. And also this very special recorded message from Jeremy was played: ‘Hi Annemieke & Hendrik! As I’ve told you both recently you have been dragging your nation way out into the sunshine of a new world, pouring your love into getting these understandings accessible to your countrymen especially with all your many, many translations. Now we have this very special milestone today with the first ever translation of FREEDOM being uploaded onto the WTM Amsterdam website! Having translated it into Dutch, and also styled the whole book it is all a truly inspirational effort for every one of us. With lots and lots of love from us all and for the future of the whole of the human race, thank you!’

In an update to their friends about the Dutch translation of FREEDOM, Hendrik and Annemieke included this wonderful paragraph: FREEDOM: The End of the Human Condition is perhaps the most important book in all of human history, and the most important book in the world in which we now live. Translating this book, which in our view has the potential to transform everyone and thus save the world, we, as translators, could not conceive of it as anything other than as a hugely responsible task, a job that can only be done in good conscience. Despite the fact that there may be people in the country who would do this job better, out of a very strong sense of urgency we decided to take on this work NOW: the sooner it can be read in the native language, the sooner everyone after all, can get started with it. The work is finished, the translation is available and you can read it on the website...’


Annemieke and Hendrik had a most wonderful meeting with the co-founders of the WTM Switzerland Centre, Christoph and Birthe. It was a most fruitful and inspiring exchange of experiences with Jeremy’s work and the work of the WTM in bringing it to the people.

Jeremy Griffith’s ability to think truthfully about the human condition allowed him to finally explain the psychology behind the politically correct culture of the Left, which is the insight that has been desperately needed to disempower the Left’s madness. This article has gone viral.

The Spectator article by Jeremy Griffith


Read Hendrik's answer to the question What is the World Transformation Movement? where he explains his experience with this information: "Bringing to me the straight forward scientific knowledge that I am fundamentally good due to my moral instincts was like coming home. This was what I always knew deep inside but did not dare to believe. And now it appeared to be the truth! All the rest is illusion due to the human condition only troubling my life."


WTM opened the gate to the real, fantastic world, away from a illusory life suffering the human condition. WTM is a unique fellowship that propagates the work of biologist Jeremy Griffith explaining that people are fundamentally good and not bad as we were told all our lives.

The first encounter with his work stroke me as a flash of lightning. All of a sudden I felt overwhelmed by the effect of his words: Relief and peace. It appeared to be the end of my journey until then, shopping around all my life to find inner peace in all kind of spiritual activities which gave me a good feeling for a short while, but all based on a big impossible dream. The feel-good was mainly due to the physical aspect, not in finding some truth bringing peace in my craving soul.

Bringing to me the straight forward scientific knowledge that I am fundamentally good due to my moral instincts was like coming home. This was what I always knew deep inside but did not dare to believe. And now it appeared to be the truth! All the rest is illusion due to the human condition only troubling my life.

Freedom was the reward for understanding the human condition and how my life was influenced.

Freedom to grow into a life based on my intrinsic goodness bringing.

Freedom to share this worldsaving knowledge with the world.

Freedom to create an amazing new world where the human condition does not exist anymore and people live together in line with their instinctive orientation: loving, cooperative and unselfish.

And read Annemieke’s answer to the same question, where she explains "With this understanding found the reason for all our self-preoccupation and our need to validate ourselves, to ‘feel good’ about ourselves, as well as for our bad and highly destructive behaviour, is gone."


WTM (www.humancondition.com) is the World Transformation Movement, based in Sydney, with members all around the world, supporting the work of biologist Jeremy Griffith, who, astonishing as it may seem, actually found the enormously relieving explanation of the human condition, FINALLY enabling every human being to understand and rehabilitate ourselves and the human race, fully conscious of the now scientifically proven fact that human beings/we are actually good, having loving, cooperative and unselfish instincts and there is no reason at all anymore NOT to behave accordingly. With this understanding found the reason for all our self-preoccupation and our need to validate ourselves, to ‘feel good’ about ourselves, as well as for our bad and highly destructive behaviour, is gone. We can stop ‘scratching my elbow, to get rid of the itch of my haemorrhoids’, so to speak. With the problem which is the cause of all problems — not understanding what the human condition is—properly identified en understood, the proper solution to any problem can be found and carried out!

The WTM-members I have made acquaintance with since having watched the first introductory video of Jeremy Griffith (suggested by Fb and following the link) some ten months ago, ‘Walk their talk’ every step of the way and in doing so are truly such ‘a breath of fresh air’. They have this utterly amazing way of telling you the truth in a beautiful, honest, supportive, natural, appreciative, non-triggering and informative way, every time anyone has a question. I’ve hardly ever, if ever, felt secure enough to lower the mask, I wasn’t aware of wearing, completely and fearlessly and almost right away. At first I couldn’t believe it—are these people for real? But now, 10 months later, I know that they ARE for real, and moreover, I’m seeing how much I am beginning to becoming 'for real' like that myself because of reading and watching Jeremy Griffith talk about the human condition.

It is not a conscious process, it is as if some programs are being/have been deleted in the background on a subconscious level, which I have been trying to delete all my life with yoga, meditation, books on spiritual subjects, ‘helping’ people how to be in a calm state of mind (mainly finding and offering ways in which to cope with my/their stressed out state): with the program deleted there simply is no stress anymore to cope with: its all gone, dissolved along with the illusions it was all based on in the first place. It is an utterly amazing experience and more noticeable with every day going by. Members communicate a lot with each other, which is a lovely way to start the day and also enormously helpful to understand what understanding the human condition is and notice what this understanding does to people: I have never seen a more honest, happy, sharing lot than these ones I am fortunate enough to know! And the best thing is that EVERYBODY can be part of it!


Annemieke Akker has been hard at work translating Freedom Essays 1-4 and 14 after her absolutely brilliant effort to produce — with the indispensable and unceasing help of her husband and Dutch WTM Centre co-founder Hendrik Riksen — a translated version of biologist Jeremy Griffith’s book Transform Your Life And Save The World (download the PDF). Their tireless enthusiasm for this world-saving information is an inspiration!
