About

Sulam Chi (Ladder of Life Force Energy) is a beautiful integration of Tai Chi movement and Kabbalah’s mystical Tree of Life. It is a simple, gentle, yet powerful way to experience divine energy right where we live: in our bodies.


The complete form can be done in as little as 5 minutes in a small space. Sulam Chi is ideal for all age groups and levels of fitness. It is an efficient, easy-to-learn exercise that integrates mind, body, and spirit. No background in Tai Chi or Kabbalah is required to feel relaxed, energized, and renewed through Sulam Chi.


Levi developed Sulam Chi in Jerusalem, Israel in 1999 with Michael Kagan. They had studied Kabbalah under Hadassah Ben-Yishai for a number of years in the late 1990s.  Knowing his background in Tai Chi, Michael came to Levi with the idea to create a Kabbalistic movement. Thus, Sulam Chi was born.



Levi began studying Tai Chi Chuan in Boston in 1985 under Master Vincent Chu and his father, Yang-style Master Gin Soon Chu. Levi is a Tai Chi and Kabbalah teacher based in Santa Fe. He is also a singer-songwriter , inspirational speaker, and a featured blogger on The Huffington Post. To learn more about Levi and his work, click here.
