Siobhan Chandler


It's incredible that I ended up getting a PhD in Religion and Culture because there was a time I did not enjoy university. When I was a first year student, I was too intimidated to speak to my professors. My classes were huge and I felt invisible; I didn't know where to turn for help. Today my work is about helping students. I can relate to their struggles and deeply understand that learning is not just about memorizing facts and meeting deadlines. Ideally, it's a journey of self-discovery and expansion. What changed everything for me was finding a topic that sparked my intellectual curiosity—the 'spiritual but not religious' movement.

My passion for this topic led me to several major publications, scholarships, teaching and speaking opportunities, and a nomination for a dissertation of excellence award. I have been a lecturer and worked as an online learning instructor for the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University. In 2013, I was a Visiting Fellow at The Centre for Studies of Religion in Society at the University of Victoria, and decided to stay in this beautiful city.
