The status of a student depends on participation in the narrative production, specifically the retelling of past lives and recovered memories. Several examples are given. The ethnographer’s experience of the phenomenological lifeworld of Unarius takes shape as she participates in a past-life readings and momentary glimpses of member experience. The ethnographer explains the problems of fieldwork in the context of the balance between immersion and objectivity. Because of this issue, she restrains herself from contributing to the narrative.

Keywords:   student, status, narrative, lifeworld, past-life reading, past lives, recovered memories, ethnographer, fieldwork, objectivity
