Here's What Members Say About Their Experience In Inner Alchemists

“The first meeting, I was very in my head. But lately, the guys tell me I’m speaking more from the heart, more authentically. So it’s good that we have the group. Definitely helped.”
— David

“When I compare myself to last year, I’m more vulnerable, more open, I have more authentic connections to my friends.”
— Elias

“It creates anxiety to share things and be vulnerable, but that in itself is making me advance. Because there’s not any other situation where I can do that.”— Alejandra

“I have to say I‘ve learnt some really important lessons for my mental wellbeing from this group and it feels like a good ecosystem of support to be in. Erik, who set it up, is hosting. He is a really good coach, working a lot with people who feel stuck and with emotional blockages.”
— Phil

Who's behind this thing?

Hi, I'm Erik Jongbloed, and I was working as a software engineer when I got into personal development.
After being shown the immense potential of feeling based trauma release by my coaches and teachers, I did deep research for years, and experimented on myself with the help of my girlfriend, until I found a simple and effective approach that also worked if my session partner was not a therapist.
I found out that two things are needed: the right tools, and the presence of another human.
So, I built a system that can help anyone to help anyone release trauma - Inner Alchemists was born.

Testimonials about Erik

Inner Alchemists founder Erik was an individual coach, before he decided to code his methods into healing algorithms that anyone could use, and combine them with group intuition and tribe accountability (creating Inner Alchemists).
Here's what some of his clients said:

My Personal Story

I was your typical neurotic. A nerdy philosophical guy with some insecurities.
Both making new friends, and getting women to date me was challenging, because I struggled to 'be myself'.
Past school experiences and bullying conditioned me that I wasn't good enough to be loved and accepted as myself.
Without doing anything for it.
So, what I did for it involved trying to say what people wanted to hear, and being the funny guy telling too many jokes.
Underneath the surface, I felt inferior and didn't love myself.
Consequently, I also did nothing with my dreams of starting a purposeful business, despite the agonizing feeling of not living my full potential.
However, my life took a radical turn when I reluctantly attended a unique retreat, where I discovered that unresolved childhood pain was holding me back. Learning trauma release techniques was the last thing I thought I needed ("my childhood was fine!"), but I was the right combination of open-minded and desperate for change.
So, I applied them.
Two weeks later, the consequences were undeniable.Strangers in the grumpy, gritty metropole of Rotterdam inexplicably approached me on the street just to say hello to me, all my dates went well that week, and I registered my business without procrastination this time.It's been four years, and as I continue to address my repressed pain, I shifted from avoiding emotional conversations to embracing vulnerability and fostering deep loving relationships.
My self-esteem felt increased by 70%, and that hasn't gone away.
I experience more self-acceptance and love each day.
You can experience this too.

All you need is the support of other courageous, authentic, open-hearted people.

My Personal "How Did I Get Here" Moment

The Day That I Woke Up...

Without Morning Anxiety...

Imagine opening your eyes and noticing ... no part of you wants to crawl back under the sheets.
That awful depression-anxiety combo that I used to feel in my belly, especially during the winter, simply wasn't there today! Excited and optimistic, I bounced out of bed.

Without Inner Conflict...

While my first coffee was brewing, I noticed that I can't wait to get to work today.
I recalled the way life used to feel. For years, I knew that I wasn't living my full potential, but... for some reason I kept playing small.
Oh that's right, I used to have a negative voice in my head, sabotaging my life!
You can't do it, it used to say. You're not good enough. You don't deserve that. It will never work. Everyone will laugh at you for trying. You're not ready. You're stupid for believing you can do this. And you're a loser, bound to fail.
I smile.
It's like that was someone else....

Full of Self Love...

I pulled the cup from the machine and sit down to slurp and scroll through my texts.
A message from the person I was dating: "I wanted to still talk to you about something but it can wait until next time". I felt the caffeine increase your heart rate and get another blast from the past: the fight-or-flight trauma response I used to feel at a message like that.
Racking my brain what I could have said wrong to make her not like me anymore.
My mind assuming an imminent break-up, making plans to be fine without them.
These days, I'm much more chill. Why assume the worst?I know I'm very lovable, and I love being alone too, so I don't mind the ambiguity.
Unattached to any outcome, I hopped in my car with a smile.
We'll see, won't we!

With Self Esteem...

At the morning meeting, I noticed that I disagreed with most colleagues on a particular solution.
Being disliked or even in the spotlight used to make me slightly dissociate. Today, I found myself calmly speaking up and being respected and appreciated it.
I smiled again and remember that everyone benefits from my perspective, now that I've learnt to take up space and view myself as competent.But then, a coworker made a joke at my expense.
Instead of tensing up and feeling the need to make a slightly-too-serious rebuke while the blood rushes to my face, like I used to, I simply chuckled. I can see the humor in it, and laughing about myself is enjoyable, now that I no longer secretly feel like I'm a worthless loser on the inside.
Gosh, it sure is nice to have authentic self-esteem.

Naturally Attractive

After the work victory, still no message from the one I was dating, but I don't worry.
Feeling a desire to connect, I accept a last minute invitation to a group hangout. Many new people have been inviting me lately, it's like I'm a magnet attracting the people that matter to me.
I'm not even sure what changed, only how different it feels. I used to struggle to connect to new people, feeling like I had to put on a show and say the right things. Socializing was exhausting. And I rarely really 'clicked' with someone.Oh how the tables have turned...Maybe it's because I truly don't mind what people think about me, and I'm just there following your own flow, that my vibe has changed and people feel drawn to me. It's effortless because I'm no longer calculating what the best thing is to say.I don't mind being vulnerable.And I'm not scared of eye contact. In fact, I love it when I can feel someone's heart through meeting their eyes. Human connection is what I enjoy now. Who knew it could be so effortless to be your "real self" and make deep connections without even trying!
