    Well, there are no guides because mining on a Mac is really ineffective, even on a Mac Pro.

    However, it's pretty easy – all you need is ethminer:

    1. Install ethminer:

      brew tap ethereum/ethereum
      brew install cpp-ethereum
      
    2. Run ethminer:

      ethminer -G -F http://somepool.com
      

    Also note that mining makes your hardware age very fast. You should mine on your mac only if you don't care about its hardware.
