More About Levi

In addition to being a singer-songwriter, Levi blends his knowledge of Tai Chi Chuan and Kabbalah to create a unique, uplifting spiritual voice. A teacher of Tai Chi and Kabbalah, he is the co-creator of Sulam Chi, a graceful and powerful movement form that integrates the energies of Tai Chi and Kabbalah’s mystical Tree of Life. A DVD called, Sulam Chi: A Dance of Life, is a beautiful introduction to the movements and what is behind them. 

He contributed an essay to the book How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth, a collection of 101 insightful essays from some of the world’s greatest thinkers, leaders, and writers. Levi was a featured blogger on The Huffington Post. He is the author of the inspirational self-help book Living Wisely.


While pursuing a career in software development, Levi earned a master’s degree in economic development from MIT in 1989. He studied Yang-style Tai Chi intensively during his years in the Boston area. He moved to Israel in 1991. In Jerusalem, Levi became a dual citizen of Israel and the United States, began teaching Tai Chi, met his Kabbalah teacher, and co-created Sulam Chi. He returned to the United States in 2001. For 5 years, he was co-host of Transitions Radio Magazine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Levi lives with his wife and son in northern California.
