Especially Buddhist, confucian and daoist philosophy.

We first met in a park in Oakland, California and I listened as Derek taught about the truth's contained within the Dao De Jing and instructed me in a Daoist way of sitting meditation. His knowledge spans many cultures and spiritual frameworks and it is evident in the elegance with which he shares the fruits of a life immersed in study of the Universal Nature. Derek is more than a qualified teacher, he is also a compassionate friend and a very heartfelt, real, and down to earth person. The truths of the Dao require a teacher who lives a very present life and one who practices the teachings so they may be conveyed in a simplistic yet effective way that helps the seeker in their own lives. Derek is such a person and I would recommend classes or personal time with him for anyone attempting to further their study of living more in accord with the Dao.
