the Beezone

“If you find yourself on the barren rocky path of the world above the treeline of everyday news and concerns . . . If you are there when evening falls, food is scarce and the inevitability of loss and death is felt and seen and the heart is broken . . . There is a lake of mind fed by crystal springs, where bees seeking water come to refresh their lives of honey gathering – It is the Beezone” – Peter Malakoff


“Beezone is, without any doubt, a world’s best spiritual resource.  Here you will find the rare and great treasures, all given freely and absent prejudice.” – Michael J Setter


Introduction to Beezone

 Beezone, a nonprofit (501(c)3) educational foundation established in 1998 

“There was a secret work school that existed in Afghanistan for thousands of years called “Sarmoun Darq,” which means “The Beehive” or the “Collectors of Honey.”


Beezone is a nonprofit (501(c)3) educational foundation library, launched January 1998. The many materials (3000+ pages) on the Beezone are categorized under the general heading of ‘spirituality.’ The library is my ongoing study and attempt to understand and preserve what the great traditions and schools of religion, philosophy, psychology and other central categories of human understanding have developed over the centuries. Today modern understanding is emerging, transforming and in many cases discarding traditional views. My work with the Beezone is to expand and integrate the ancient wisdom of yesterday with today’s rational, scientific and materialistic views.

Who am I, Who are You and What are we Doing?

The Beezone is a result of my early and continuous consideration and study of The Great Wonder of Wonders. “What’s it all about” “Who am I” “What am I suppose to be doing,” AND “What about the state of the world we live in today”. I believe these “wonders” are important to consider since we must live together and ultimately leave with our “house” in order for those who follow.

The name Beezone came from the term Beehive. This metaphor was also used in a secret school that existed in Afghanistan thousands of years ago called Sarmoun Darq, which means “The Beehive” or the “Collectors of Honey.” The Beehive refers to the ultimate Source of Wisdom, the Realizer, and the function of the Guru. The Beehive is where bees organize themselves by serving the Queen and making honey. Since I am not in any “hive” but am in the zone of many influences, I chose the term Beezone to represent my relationship to the literature, centers, and people that are the ancient and modern holders of Wisdom.

May you be blessed and find Beezone helpful in your investigation and study of the journey we all call Life.

“I am devoted to study and eager in the pursuit of the good arts. Nevertheless, I do not assume nor arrogate to myself the title learned….because I understand that in this kind of learned contest the real victory lies in being vanquished” – (Count) Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola (1463-94) – Oration on the Diginity of Man, 1487.
