Promoting Health The Middle Way

Meet Mary

Hello. I’m Mary Claybon.

My work and passion is to offer guidance that empowers people to grow and develop from the inside out. My inspiration is based on my own personal and spiritual journey, and my education both formal and in the classroom of life.

I began my career as a nurse focused on the body and have evolved my focus to deeper healing that goes beyond the body, the brain, and the human mind. My work incorporates a spiritual foundation with practical application in the world.

My mission is to offer guidance and coaching to individuals and groups through my writing, speaking, and teaching with the goal of empowering people to achieve a balanced and healthy life.

I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts with emphasis in philosophy, psychology, and spirituality, and an M.Ed. in Health Education and Health Promotion. As a Health Educator I have taught fitness courses, hatha yoga classes, courses in healthy aging, and directed a major corporate health promotion program in Cincinnati. In Human Resources I have worked as a Staff Development Consultant, where I coordinated and delivered new employee orientation programs and helped managers and team members to grow and develop on-the-job through training programs, performance management. and career coaching.

I am a participating member and Certified Wellness Coach through Wellcoaches, Inc. since 2006.

I love to speak and enjoy writing. I have been presenting to groups for over thirty years on various topics dealing with health and personal development. I base my presentations on the latest research, with a sprinkling of my personal journey, experience, and commitment to achieving and maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

I am a contributing author to the book Discover Your Inner Strength. My poetry and essays have appeared in various publications. I am currently working on a book of essays about group dynamics based on my work with A Course in Miracles.

Originally from Chicago, I currently live in Mason, Ohio with my husband and life partner Steve. We have been married over forty years and have three grown children, a daughter-in-law and son-in-law, four grandchildren, and two granddogs.


Life is a joy, and the joy is in the journey.
