Marybeth L. Spain

Marybeth graduated from Manhattanville College in 1971 (maiden name, Lynch) with a B.A. in Russian. She went on to Stanford University, where she earned an M.A. in Russian and a Ph.D. in Russian Literature. She has taught at Stanford, the University of New Hampshire, and George Mason University, in Fairfax, VA. In all her studies and teaching, she is drawn to themes and questions where literature, psychology, spirituality, and consciousness intersect.

In March 1986, Marybeth began taking the Free Soul 10-week course in Psychic and Spiritual Development. It was a pivotal experience for her. Almost instantly, it showed her that spiritual energy is palpable—that it can be experienced rather than merely believed in or understood. She felt and really connected with the vibration of Soul—the divine substrate inherent in all of reality, linking us in consciousness as one.

Since then, life has presented Marybeth with an endless progression of opportunities to delve deeper into the psychic, spiritual, mental, and emotional dimensions and to share what she has learned. All her skills serve the purpose of helping individuals to find healing and harmony within themselves and to experience the peace and joy of connection.

Marybeth practices in the Washington, D.C., area.
