The main thesis of this work is an argument that the Study of religions can be (for one part of students) an important component of their individual religious development. The paper is focused on individual religiosity/spirituality, model of religious market and actually religious situation in Czech Republic. On basis of market metaphor I can analyse relation between spiritual oriented students ("spiritual seekers"), which represent a side of religious demang in the market metaphor, and the study of religions, which represent a side of supply. Study of this discipline, which is accredited by secular state, can represent one of the opportunity how to assemble a personal religious "bricolage".
