Yoga, Meditation & Cultural Appropriation DIFCON: Difficult Conversations about Urgent Issues University at Buffalo Office of Inclusive Excellence Thursday, September 12 12:00 - 1:30PM The Landmark Room, 210 Student Union free lunch! A variety of debates and controversies surround the growing popularity of yoga and meditation around the globe. In particular, some are concerned that yoga in the West has developed into an elitist, anti-diversity practice. We ask: Is practicing yoga and meditation a form of cultural appropriation? Can these mindfulness exercises be practiced in more culturally appropriate ways?

Phillips, Founding Member of The Mindfulness Alliance & Professor of Law.
