Michelle Riddle Sensei leads programs in PZI’s digital temple and lives in the SF Bay Area.

She first met John Tarrant at the tail end of the twentieth century, and has been involved in some way with the care and evolution of PZI for decades. She worked for many years in media, including radio, television, and digital. For the past few years she’s worked with an investment company that focuses primarily on wine grape vineyards. She’s interested in how koans help with the discovery of freedom in our lives, and in the creative possibilities for manifesting that freedom.
