Spiritual materialism or spiritual narcissism are terms used to describe mistakes spiritual seekers commit which turn the pursuit of spirituality into an ego building and confusion creating endeavor.
This is based on the idea that ego development is counter to spiritual progress.
Chögyam Trungpa coined the term spiritual materialism with his book Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism from talks explaining Buddhism given while opening the Karma Dzong meditation center in Boulder, Colorado.
He expands on the concept in later seminars that became books such as Work, Sex, Money.
