Spirituality is belief in supernatural powers, much as in religion. What is referred to as "religion" and what is referred to as "spirituality" are often the same. In recent years, "spirituality" has often carried connotations of the believer's faith being more personal, less dogmatic, more open to new ideas and myriad influences, and more pluralistic than the faiths of established religions. Those given to describing of their spiritual beliefs in terms of "spirituality" rather than "religion" are apt to believe that there are many "spiritual paths" and that there is no objective truth about which is the best path to follow.

Some spiritual communities who might be considered to be more spiritual than religious include New Age, Neopaganism, Subud and Unitarian Universalism.
