Abstract

In mindfulness practice, psychological sciences have been representing a core premise for multidisciplinary efforts. Research has been undertaken to explain how mindfulness meditation plays its beneficial impact on physical and mental health, as well as to study the effects on cognitive performance and emotional regulation in a variety of educational settings. Although mindfulness meditation shares common principles with other psychological interventions, such as acceptance and empathy, a specific focus on relational aspects and sense of belonging remains uncertain. The practice of mindfulness provides a potential framework by supporting individuals in the research of meanings, whereas mindfulness-based groups encourage social interactions between practitioners as part of the training sessions. This article will review mindfulness group interventions based on mindfulness group membership, whilst a sense of belonging through mindfulness will be referred to emerging prospects in individual practice. It follows that mindfulness intervention models are being offered to promote psychological well-being in terms of learning requirements and group membership.
