Let`s take the ancient practice of yoga, for example. Many people that are into yoga these days are those that were around during the massive social changes that swept the country in the 60s & 70s.
I may be generalizing here a bit, but many of those people are in their 50s & 60s today ( commonly known as baby-boomers). I now see many commercials on television where yoga is part of the ad for selling paint, prescription drugs, cars, etc. I also see the solemn practice of meditation used to sell stuff.
What I`m saying is that some things that people find sacred or personal have been used to sell stuff. Personally, I get a bit offended by that. Perhaps I`m just tired of the consumer culture of consume, consume, consume ... to what end?
The catch-22 is when marketing and advertising firms bastardize and exploit things like yoga or meditation for their own profits.
Sorry ... I just gotta rant some times.
