Bethany has been developing her appreciation of inner and outer experiences for her entire life. She attended Antioch College, then Brooklyn College for an MFA, and studied linguistics. She decided to become a writing professor in order to avoid ever having to sit in an office with fluorescent lighting. In fact, for many years, she was under the mistaken impression that most (if not all) workplaces were dreary, headache-y cubicle farms, and she avoided them. That is, until she found herself living at a Zen monastery where she became riveted by (among other things) the dynamics of the organization itself, and realized that her love of systems could apply to business.
Bethany is now a professional writer, (bethanysaltman.com) award-winning editor, very occasional that-was-the-best-night-of-my-life event planner, and a nationally recognized researcher in the psychology of relationships. Her book Strange Situation: A Mother's Journey Into the Science of Attachment will be published in 2020 by Random House. She is also a sought-after executive consultant and coach who has partnered with some of the finest minds working today. And finally, Bethany is a senior lay Zen student, devoted to the fine art and game-changing effects of paying attention.
