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. The complete form can be done in as little as 5 minutes in a small space. No background in Tai Chi or Kabbalah is required to feel relaxed, energized, and renewed through Sulam Chi.
A set of original prayers/intentions that are linked to each of the ten energy centers of the Tree of Life can be added to the practice to enhance and deepen your experience.
The Sulam Chi DVD is a beautiful introduction to the movements, the prayers, and what is behind them.
Sulam Chi has tremendous power, depth, and beauty. I feel peaceful, strong, and energized after doing it. It has become a joyful part of my daily practice.

Sulam Chi is a unique form of devotional exercise that combines the Tree of Life and Tai Chi. It brings you into the experience of ancient wisdom, while nourishing the moments you are living. It is practical and wise, and Levi Ben-Shmuel is an excellent teacher. As I say in my book, "there is no substitute for practice" and this is a great practice.

I found Levi's Sulam Chi workshop to be truly inspiring as we worked with the energies of Tai Chi and the power of Kabbalah. The time flew by as we learned, practiced, questioned, and learned even more. Levi is a kind, warm, and attentive teacher; it was an honor to be in the presence of a master.

This DVD is a jewel. As a yoga instructor, I'm often drawn to different kinds of movement practices and I wanted to try Tai Chi. Although I attended a few Tai Chi classes offered in our community, "dropping -in" did not allow for this beginner to keep up. I decided a home practice would prove more satisfying and ordered Sulam Chi: Integrating the Energies of Tai Chi by Levi Ben-Shmuel. This practice is beautiful and accessible. Levi exquisitely introduces the Ladder of Life then proceeds to demonstrate Tai Chi movement in a rich and accessible flow. The more I watch and do the practice, listening to Levi's guidance and insights, this dvd continues to keep me inspired and gently progress at my own pace.
