Todd Vickers (Street Articles Author)

Todd is a writer with a focus on social issues including sexuality and personal understanding through meditation. He began meditating as a way to overcome destructive habits. He abandoned the belief of a god and felt most attracted to Zen. He became a disciple of Osho in 1988. He met Papaji in 1994 in Lucknow, an encounter that changed the course of his self-inquiry. Prior to this encounter, Todd placed a great deal of importance on experiences induced through meditation. Through Papaji's influence, he realized that the concept of the self is unsustainable as are any spiritual experiences. He felt motivated to write in an attempt to bring out the best in spirituality and to point toward toward self-inquiry.
