The first spiritual practice would have been animism, the belief that everything had a spirit- the trees, the rocks, the sky, the sea, the wind.
People then assigned them human characteristics, personified them, gave them a backstory. You have gods.
The first religion is a hard question, I would imagine in Africa since that is where civilisation is thought to have started, people always mention the Sumerians- personally I think it is probably before them.
