Relentlessly waging peace since 2010


Mission & History

The Kinder Life Community

The Kinder Life Community promotes individual and collective peace, health, harmony, creativity, and joy.  Workshops began in 2010 in upstate New York, at the request of individuals who asked the Kinder Life Community founder, Dr. Deborah Gabriel, to teach the techniques she used to remain peaceful, happy, and calm.
Between 2010 and 2013, during the community’s time in New York, workshops were held in yoga studios, churches, private homes, and other facilities. Talks, demonstrations, and guided meditations were given in schools, offices, hospitals, and other venues. 
The Kinder Life Community activities included a day-long workshop offering stress-relieving techniques to veterans suffering from PTSD and other disorders, participation in health fairs, and complementary stress-relieving skill training for bereaved adults and for traumatic brain injury patients. 
In 2011, Dr. Gabriel served as Featured Speaker at the “Caring for the Caregiver Conference” held in Geneva, NY and, in 2013, contracted with the Ontario County Office for the Aging to provide guided meditations and meditation instruction to residents in senior facilities. 
In September, 2013, Dr. Gabriel moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the Kinder Life Community activities resumed in early 2014. The Kinder Life Community Center in Woodinville, Washington was dedicated on July 12th, 2014 and hosts a full range of activities.
