Dear Friends, as the pandemic impacted tourism in Vietnam so heavily we have had to close Gratitude Vietnam. Gratitude Worldwide now exists as a company, and the hope is to open a retreat in Europe in the coming year or so. If you like what you see here, please join the mailing list for updates on progress towards the next chapter. Thank you for your love and support. With gratitude and love, Naomi and Hannah
Gratitude Vietnam is an intimate, classy, yet earthy and eco-friendly retreat centre in the beautiful country of Vietnam. This beautiful home-from-home was established by Hannah and Naomi in 2019, who have been friends for nearly 7 years and met as teaching colleagues whilst working in Hong Kong.
Since making the decision to leave teaching and embark on this project over five years ago, we worked, lived and travelled extensively together in harmonious friendship. We feel that Asia is our home, and having moved to Vietnam, we have found the most wonderful home in Hoi An, for both our retreat venue, and ourselves.
During our journey, we both attended many transformative retreats which have challenged us to grow, ground and connect with the deepest parts of ourselves. We are both deeply passionate about holistic healing through modalities such as yoga, meditation, USUI Reiki, TRE, somatic, energetic and sound healing.
Since opening the Retreat, Hannah has embraced her own journey, and returned to teaching in an International School in Danang. She still visits regularly, and co-cares for our beautiful dog, Bobo! 2020 has been a challenging year all-round, but has presented a beautiful opportunity to discover what is truly important in our lives, both personally and professionally.
Naomi is a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Grand Master, sound bowl practitioner, and retreat leader To the retreat centre I bring a wealth of skills that include event management, customer services, leadership skills, experience in hospitality, finance and above all else, commitment to making this a successful business. The wellbeing of guests is my main priority, with attention to detail and an inclusive environment where all are treated as individuals, without discrimination or judgement. To find out a little more about me, follow this link!
Throughout the year I run certified Reiki training courses and a variety of healing retreats, alongside welcoming like-minded practitioners to run retreats from our centre. My mission is to provide a safe, nourishing and nurturing environment with space for mindful reflection and relaxation, and welcome those wishing to bring healing into their lives, train in various healing techniques or simply wanting to enjoy the culture of this wonderful country from a tranquil home-from-home.
I am excited to share this journey with you and it would mean a lot if you subscribed to the Gratitude Vietnam blog. In this way, you will be able to stay updated on my adventures along the way! The next chapter of this journey is already underway with the establishment of Gratitude Worldwide. Please do stay in touch and keep Gratitude in mind for future retreating!
“Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts.”
