Worrall, Ambrose Alexander (1899–1972)
Engineer and spiritual healer. He was born on January 18,
1899, at Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire, England. He studied
mechanical engineering. In 1928 he married Olga Nathalie
Ripich Worrall. For 30 years (1924–64) he was employed by
the Martin Company, Baltimore, Maryland, and worked as a
consultant for various firms in the years after his retirement.
He and his wife worked quietly as spiritual healers for many
years, but their work gained a wider audience after the founding
of the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship (now the International
Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship) in the 1950s. They became
leaders in the organization. They also contributed to the annual
seminars on spiritual healing held by the Laymen’s Movement,
Wainwright House, Rye, New York. Worrall’s interests
included clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, psychokinesis,
psychometry, and theories of survival. He lectured
widely on ESP and spiritual healing at colleges, churches, and
other associations and published several pamphlets on spiritual
healing and related subjects. He died on February 2, 1972.
