Mindfulness Exercises for Group Therapy

1. Group Mindful Breathing

Purpose: To center the group and cultivate a shared sense of presence.

How to Do It:

  • Begin each session with a group mindful breathing exercise. Have everyone sit comfortably and close their eyes if they’re comfortable doing so.
  • Guide the group to focus on their breath, inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply.
  • Encourage participants to notice the rise and fall of their chest or the sensation of air passing through their nostrils.
  • Practice this for about 5 minutes to help everyone arrive fully in the space and moment.

2. Mindful Listening Circle

Purpose: To enhance empathetic listening and speaking from the heart.

How to Do It:

  • Invite group members to sit in a circle and share their current feelings or thoughts, one at a time.
  • Encourage others to listen mindfully without planning their responses or making judgments.
  • After each person speaks, allow a brief moment of silence before the next person shares, fostering a space of respect and attentiveness.

3. Body Scan for Emotional Awareness

Purpose: To connect with bodily sensations and emotional states.

How to Do It:

  • Guide the group through a body scan, starting from the toes and moving up to the head.
  • Encourage members to notice any areas of tension or discomfort and any emotions associated with these sensations.
  • Promote an attitude of curiosity and non-judgment, helping participants learn to observe their experiences without needing to change them.

4. Gratitude Sharing

Purpose: To cultivate positivity and shared connection within the group.

How to Do It:

  • Allocate time for each group member to share something they are grateful for.
  • Encourage participants to focus on listening deeply when others are sharing, fostering a supportive and positive group environment.

5. Mindful Movement

Purpose: To integrate mindfulness with physical activity, enhancing body awareness.

How to Do It:

  • Introduce simple, gentle mindful movement exercises, such as slow stretching or yoga, suitable for all fitness levels.
  • Encourage participants to be fully present with each movement, observing how their body feels and the emotions that arise.

Integrating Mindfulness into Group Therapy

  • Consistency: Incorporate a short mindfulness exercise at the beginning of each session to establish a routine.
  • Integration: Encourage participants to share their experiences with the mindfulness practices, integrating insights into the therapy process.
  • Homework: Suggest simple mindfulness exercises for participants to practice between sessions, enhancing their daily life and therapy experience.
  • Adaptation: Be open to adapting exercises to meet the group’s needs, ensuring that all members feel comfortable and included.


Incorporating mindfulness into group therapy can significantly enrich the therapeutic experience, offering tools for participants to enhance self-awareness, empathy, and connection. By practicing these exercises regularly, group members can develop a deeper understanding of themselves and others, fostering a supportive and transformative environment. Encourage participants to approach these practices with an open mind and a gentle, non-judgmental attitude, allowing the benefits of mindfulness to unfold naturally within the group therapy setting.
