Is it the color itself or the process that isn't as meditative?

It's the process. If you're working with black and white film, the only process that has to be done in pitch blackness is rolling it and tucking it into the light-safe development tank. Once the film is developed, you can work in the stereotypical darkroom environment, the safelights don't expose the black and white photo paper.

Printing color, everything has to be done in complete darkness, since any visible light will expose not just the film, but the photo paper too. It's harder to do well, and very quickly became automated.
