Nona Strong is a Zen teacher studying under Fr. Gregory Mayers C.Ss.R., who directed the Mercy Center East-West Meditation Program from 2005 to 2019. Nona Strong began Zen koan studies with Fr. Greg Roshi in 1996, and in 2019 she received full transmission as an Authentic Zen Master in the Empty Cloud lineage.

'Embracing the Way of Zen, we concentrate our search for answers into a practice of silent meditation, in community when possible, through which the questions (if not all the answers) become increasingly clear. And through our practice, we put all our care for ourselves and others into a boundless medium that can help us carry that search, that practice, and its fruits into the larger world.' In Zen, everybody benefits, including ourselves.
