...psychological experience as distinct from physiological experience....
yes to a certain limit,because both (the spiritual and the religious)can share a "ritualistic" role to deepen and enhance the experience which leads sometimes to revelation+ vocation

the spiritual(the general case)engulf the religious(the particular case)
if we decompose linguistically the word "spirituality" and relate it to the notion of "spirit" as something meta-physical or super-natural,well it's sometimes hard to carve a word from the human dictionary that can express an vague abstract theme,something that you can feel with your sensory perception ,but you translate or decode it thru your mental cognition,a psychological experience that you can not engulf with a word that belongs to the physical world,eventhough the initial stimulus is from the physical world(a paradox,well it depends on the receptor!)
you seem to detest the word "spirituality" as a word that express a notion,but i think we are both after all on the same frequency.
