Becoming a Taoist

"Becoming a Taoist" can mean many things. It might simply mean tuning in, a little more closely, to the elemental rhythms found in the natural world, in order to appreciate more deeply your place in the web of life. It could mean joining a Taoist temple, and participating in various rituals and ceremonies. Or it could mean apprenticing yourself to a Taoist Master - receiving instruction, perhaps, in the arts of Inner Alchemy.
