I fell in love with Tai Chi while living in the Boston area in the mid 1980's. After studying intensively with Yang-style Master Gin Soon Chu and his son Vincent, I moved to Israel and began teaching Tai Chi in 1993. While living in Jerusalem, I met a remarkable Kabbalah teacher named Hadassah Ben-Yishai who had a very special connection to the Divine. I became a dedicated student and devoted myself to learning how to embrace the unconditional love at the core of everyone's relationship with the Divine.
A few years after I met Hadassah, one of her students approached me asking if I could help him develop a set of movements that correspond to the energy centers (called sefirot in Hebrew) of Kabbalah's Tree of Life. We quickly developed movements and prayers for the sefirot and called them The Dance of The Tree. Over time, I transformed The Dance of the Tree into Sulam Chi, which means Ladder of Life Force Energy.
I returned to the States in 2001 and have continued to teach Tai Chi, Sulam Chi, and other mind/body/spirit practices. I am also the author of Living Wisely, an inspirational self-help book based on the wisdom teachings of Kabbalah and Taoism. I love helping people discover their potential, deepen their own connection to the Divine, and learn how to live with more gratitude and joy.
