Hi Michelle, There are a few good schools that offer graduate training in transpersonal psychology: some of them that come to mind are, the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology; Naropa Institute, John F. Kennedy University; Saybrook Institute and Graduate School. There are other schools in which you can study transpersonal psychology under the direction of a faculty member who specializes in transpersonal topics, e.g., John Davis, Ph.D. at (I think) Denver State University. You can discover what they do by reading the books "Paths Beyond Ego" bu Roger Walsh and Frances Vaughan or "Integral Psychology" by Ken Wilber. Transpersonal Psychogists take the approach that the personal dimension is more than the egoic level of development and includes the spiritual dimension. They tend to view all of human nature as moving toward the development of more TRANS-personal qualities which they see as a normal step in individual evolution. They also usually make a clear distinction between the religious versus spiritual, leaning more toward a view that encompasses the entire range of perennial wisdom traditions. For more information, email me or visit my website at http://www.lajoie.org where I have a comprehensive list of transpersonal psychology resources. I hope this helps!
