5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable man with a pioneering curiosity
There is no doubt that Father Andrzej, (Andrew), Glazewski or simply “Andrew”, as he preferred to be known although a Catholic priest, was a remarkable man with a pioneering curiosity.

Andrew Glazewski's system seems to hold water to some extent. It had a Platonic flavour to it. I am very much in favour of people reading books that change their minds toward an understanding of objective truth.

However, I am not convinced this book will help in this respect. Andrew is no longer living and is not with us to explain or expand on the original...

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable man with a pioneering curiosity, 31 May 2014
This review is from: Harmony of the Universe: The Science Behind Healing, Prayer and Spiritual Development (Paperback)
There is no doubt that Father Andrzej, (Andrew), Glazewski or simply “Andrew”, as he preferred to be known although a Catholic priest, was a remarkable man with a pioneering curiosity. To have this collection of his “supra-natural” lectures and writings, published more than 40 years after his death in 1973, bears testimony to this fact. The work is essentially a collection of papers and lectures given by Andrew compiled and edited by Paul Kieniewicz who has written an informative Preface and Afterword to the 16-chapter work. Paul was inspired by Andrew’s teachings as a teenager attending a Lenten retreat at Fawley Court, a Polish boarding school run by the Marian Fathers outside Henley-on-Thames. He re-connected with Andrew many years later in the 1960s after which their interactions continued.
The 16 chapter titles give the reader a taste of what the book is about. Here are some:: “The Science of Healing”, “Angels”, “The Mechanics of Prayer” , “Touching the Divine” (chapters 1 to 4); “The Name of God”, “The Eucharist”, “Developing Field Awareness”, “What Happens when We Die” (chapters 8 to 11); and “The Healing Hand”, The Music of Crystals, Plants, and Human Beings”, “The Pattern of Telepathic Communication” (chapters 13 to 15).
What sets Andrew apart from other “psychics” (the title of a mongraph about him by Bob Bloomfield is “The Psychic Priest”) is that he made a concerted effort to understand the science behind what might be regarded as supra-natural or spiritual phenomena. As Kieniewicz states in his Forweword when describing Andrews parishioners: “Few of them knew anything about his scientific work, the study of the field that surrounds plants, crystals, animals and people. One parishioner who had known him for over twenty years, admitted that she had no idea that he was a physicist or that half of his living space was occupied by a laboratory of magnetic coils, electrostatic generators, and machines whose function only he understood.”
Ultimately what made Andrew different from other mystics in my view was that he attempted to integrate the teachings of Christ, energy fields and spirituality – a tall order in anybody’s book. Although Andrew was my uncle, much to my regret I never met him as my father and his three brothers were dispersed over four continents after World War II as was typical with the Polish diaspora.
Andrew’s sudden death in 1973 galvanised me into action to find both my spiritual and ancestral roots in Poland and Lwow in former Poland (now Ukraine) where Andrew (like I did) studied law before he had his “Damascus Road” moment and went on to study theology abandoning law. Nevertheless, perhaps one day Andrew’s spirit will pay me a supra-natural visit. Who knows?

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmony of the Universe, 10 April 2014
This review is from: Harmony of the Universe: The Science Behind Healing, Prayer and Spiritual Development (Paperback)
This extraordinary book, just published, is a must for every thinker, Christian or agnostic. Andrew Glazewski, scientist, theologian, mystic, author of 3 scientific papers including “The Gravitational Wave”, in this collection of lectures and interviews introduces us to the hidden world of the spirit by means of non-religious concepts rooted in field theory. He postulates a Primary Field, present everywhere, as Soul (or God). In this he anticipates, by some seventy years, the discovery of the Higgs Boson (‘the god particle’, 2012). This field, like the Higgs field, is the substrate. Further, with reference to our world, he uses the concept of the Secondary Field, radiating from the person at the speed of light. This Secondary Field has an electric, infra-red and sonic components and is where thought takes place. He says the Secondary Field is not in the body but the body is in the Secondary Field, treating the mind/brain as only a transmitter. He refers to sets of harmonic proportions found in nature and in the personality, thus anticipating modern string theory. The advocated techniques – such as the Love-Light Technique – are based on resonance. One of his more apt analogies is that of a deep sea diver, who sees fish and creatures in murky water. When a strong spotlight is applied, the underwater world appears in magnificent detail. The spotlight is the illumination of the Primary Field. Andrew Glazewski uses field theory to explain the unexplained: healing by the hand, use of the pendulum to tell truth from lies, telepathy (defined as resonance), meditation, prayer, music of crystals, even angels; and his lectures are aimed at self-development.
Compiled by Paul Kieniewicz, , author and science researcher, his student and lifelong friend, this is a tour de force of powerful impact. Paul was a student at DMC, Fawley Court, where Andrew Glazewski, a parish priest from Ilford, came to give talks from time to time, and then befriended him at university. The Glazewski lore was taught at the school as its management were Glazewski’s followers. Those who experienced this training know that it works!

1.0 out of 5 stars Muddled., 21 Jun 2014
Andrew Glazewski's system seems to hold water to some extent. It had a Platonic flavour to it. I am very much in favour of people reading books that change their minds toward an understanding of objective truth.

However, I am not convinced this book will help in this respect. Andrew is no longer living and is not with us to explain or expand on the original system. So in the parts where it is obscure or muddled in this book there is no way to put that right.

It has been put together and edited by Paul Kieniewicz. If Paul were qualified to explain and to fill in the gaps in Andrew's work it might be worth reading. Unfortunately that is not the case, and that shows up very clearly in the translation and the way the book is put together. The result is patchy at best. And it's very dense reading. So with just a few gems among the muddle it is not really worth reading.

If you look at Paul Kieniewicz's other writings on his blog etc you will perhaps see why he has failed here. He excels in using his undoubted intellectual powers to spread fear and ignorance. It is difficult enough to put spiritual matters into words anyway, and in this case the translator is in no way qualified for the task he has set himself.
