    Hi there, 

    My probationary PhD is on the practice of Amazonian Shamanism in Great Britain. 

    Along with a few other methodologies I have decided to include an element of auto-ethnography too.

    I was hoping people could use this thread to share views and advice on auto-ethnography. 

    Such as:

    how does auto-ethnography differ from journal writing 

    how do you prevent bias/be objective

    what are the pitfalls to be aware of

    what to/not to include

    any links to good articles on the subject

    Best wishes,




    I wrote an exploratory piece about my experiences using auto-ethnography which addresses some of your questions here, as well as looking at different forms of ethnography and autoethnography.  There is a very brief summary available at and the full text was published last June as ‘Researching Workplace Spiritualization Through Auto/ethnography’ in the Journal of Management, Spirituality & Religion (Vol 8, No 2 pp: 143-164)


    Hope this helps


    Very best of luck with your doctoral project.




    fantastic thank you 🙂
