There is no clear consensus about what the difference is between religion and spirituality.

In general though, religion refers to a more organized practice, with some sort of human institution, whereas spirituality refers to a more personal experience, which may or may not fit within an organized religion. People usually do not refer to "religion" or a person being "religious" in isolation...even if a person is privately "religious", this term references some sort of larger organization with its own set of beliefs and practices.

Both religion, and spirituality, can involve belief in a deity, spiritual or mystical experiences, rituals, as well as value systems and beliefs about morality and ethics, and an understanding of how the world works. These things alone are not necessarily religious or spiritual; they can be both.
