How Tao Art Thou?

"Taoists come in all shapes, sizes, colors, genders, nationalities...but what IS a Taoist? One of the "Big Three" native belief systems of China, Taoism (pronounced "dow-ism") concerns itself with living a balanced, healthy, and invigorating life through its philosophy and practices such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and T'ai Chi (Taiji)."
