About Us

DSCN1562_face1Founded by Annemiek Selter and Aziz Thaleb in January of 2009 and based in Tived, in the heart of Sweden, Rödjorna Retreat Center Sweden is a trusted place for people to do zenmeditation in Europe. There are many zen retreats to discover on this unique retreat place in Sweden close to the borders of National Park Tiveden.

Whether an individual, or a groups retreat, Rödjorna connects people to zenmeditation in a natural, relaxed environment.

DSC_0925_face0Rödjorna contributes to the understanding that human beings and nature belong to each other. Rödjorna organizes therefore different activities to show you this connection.
Rödjorna Retreat organizes each year different retreats as zen meditation, silent retreats, hiking retreats and zen sesshins. Rödjorna has the opinion that the essential practice of zen is independent of each land, school or culture. We organize zen meditation training through the dynamic of zen self and the practice is therefore always new, fresh from moment to moment.
