About us


Founded by Annemiek Selter and Aziz Thaleb in January of 2009 and based DSC_0925_face0in Tived, in the heart of Sweden, Rödjorna Retreat Center Sweden is a trusted place for people to stay.



In what seems like another life to them Aziz studied Antropology and have been a cook for many years. Annemiek studied Veterinary homeopathy and is author of “Luchtwegziekten bij paarden” (a book about treatment of horses) and worked for over 20 years as a lawyer at the government in the Netherlands.

Both practice for more than 25 years zenmeditation. They love to give their guests an energetic staying at Rödjorna. Rödjornas Mission is to contribute to the understanding that human beings and nature belong to each other. Rödjorna organizes therefore different zenretreats to show you this connection.
