During 1994-95, three men disappeared while on a business trip to Kaliningrad (Koenigsberg) in Russia. After the authorities failed to locate the men, their families asked a Polish psychic for help. Using a photograph of one of the men the psychic sensed that the man was dead – as were his companions – their throats had been cut and they had been decapitated. He saw three headless bodies in a forest at a specific location. A few days later Russian police revealed that the bodies had been found as the psychic had described.
Clairvoyance research has over decades produced a significant body of evidence of the mind’s ability to gather information not accessible to the physical senses. In the materialist philosophical worldview, mind-to-mind communication is impossible, therefore these accounts don’t happen because they can’t happen – nevertheless they continue to occur time and time again all over the world.
In the current creative scientific turmoil perhaps it is time to consider the possibility of a model in which clairvoyance, instead of being an anomaly, is a fundamental feature of the universe. Scientific “theories of everything” are now emerging that can accommodate anomalous phenomena such as clairvoyance.
This is the central theme of The Mind at Large which presents a unique dossier documenting one clairvoyant’s contribution to detective work in Poland. Compiled over more than 20 years by the Polish clairvoyant Krzysztof Jackowski, this dossier was verified by a young Polish police sergeant Krzysztof Janoszka, who wrote a diploma thesis on the use of psychics in police work in order to draw attention to the phenomena demonstrated by Jackowski. Janoszka is the co-author of this book.
What makes this dossier particularly interesting is the clairvoyant’s claim that it is the dead who provide him with the information about their fate. Such a claim does not sit easily within his own culture, but his evidence makes an important contribution to research into mediumship and the age-old question of survival that has been researched for more than a century in the English-speaking world.
Praise for The Mind at Large.
Before entering the field of parapsychology, I earned a Master of Criminology degree. My dual interests are not unique. Even Cesare Lombroso – one of the founders of scientific criminology – was also a contributor to the field of psychical research. There is a complex history of psychics working with law enforcement agencies. I know from personal experience that this history is punctuated with numerous uncanny successes that, realistically, can only be attributed to various forms of clairvoyance and precognition. This book, The Mind At Large written by Zofia Weaver and Krzysztof Janoszka, constitutes a major contribution to the literature in this area. It merits serious study, particularly by those associated with law enforcement and criminology.

Brilliant! This is the best book on clairvoyance I’ve read in years. Zofia Weaver and Krzysztof Janoszka covered all important historical and theoretical aspects of this fascinating phenomenon in a masterfully lucid way. In addition, they brought barely known gems from practice to the attention of a Western audience: Backed up with reprints of original police reports, they described the work of contemporary Polish clairvoyant Krzysztof Jackowski who helped to solve dozens of criminal acts in cooperation with the Polish police. His documented clairvoyant impressions clearly rank among the most impressive psi experiences on record. The authors also tackle the question of the source of these clairvoyant visions. Is it “ordinary” clairvoyance or are the deceased also involved, such as murdered victims? Read the book and form your own opinion… you won’t regret it.

Who – what – are we? The question is perennial. Something small in power, trapped by time, locked in mortal bodies? Others – philosophers, poets, mystics, even scientists – hold that we are inlets to a greater reality, part of a higher life and fuller mode of being.
The Mind at Large is a book that argues that the dimensions of our personality far outstrip our ordinary selves. The authors do so by laying out many strands of extraordinary, documented data, all of which point to powers of the mind that extend our human nature and point to its transcendent potential.
A special feature focuses on Polish police records for examples of the dramatic use of clairvoyance solving crimes and mysteries in the thick of real life. This book will expand your sense of identity, by providing solid clues to how we connect to the greater mind at large.

“Parapsychological naturalist” has been used to describe the lead author’s approach to anomalous phenomena. This whole book provides a strong case for why experiences in the natural world (spontaneous phenomena), and studying in meticulous details those who claim anomalous abilities, hold a vital place within parapsychological research. Many may think that the parapsychologist now only spends their time in the laboratory, quantifying studies of psychic ability. On the contrary, all approaches complement the bigger picture and the difficult questions.
The natural world and observations of exceptional phenomena can tell us many things, especially, what conventional mechanisms are at work, how to dig deeper when none present themselves, what questions we should be asking, and how anything may transfer to the laboratory – if at all possible? The latter is not always achievable or ecologically valid. The natural world is beautifully time consuming, but worth the wait for the discoveries we can make. The authors should be commended for going forth into the field and their detailed presentations of the literature and cases.”
