Spirituality can perhaps be described as the individual pursuit for a re-connection with a spiritual force greater than ourselves.  Spirituality is very different from Religion.  For example, religions have hierarchies, doctrine, symbols, rituals, ceremonies, and rules whereas Spirituality has none of these things.  Perhaps the best distinction to make is that a Religion is for groups of people, whereas Spirituality is for the individual. It is the personal and private practice of connecting to a wiser being in a way that seems perfectly right for us, where we can choose to cultivate our own methods or incorporate those of others on the spiritual path.
