“The Book of Feeling” is an inspiring motto to look and delve into what one feels, and open up to what has never been seen, release what is necessary, and from the discoveries made express and create a new world, yours.
It is a creation by Ana Castanheira, the first to be published in paper format.
1. Feeling as a starting point
The Book of Feeling is a record in the form of words, where far beyond the mental organization, the written expression happened from a sensitive understanding, born and designed in silence, in full contact with internal wisdom.
The proposal is that this book can make the reader connect with his own feeling, and observe, allow him to realize what happens to him when he comes into contact with the texts, and allow him to express himself, relate to what he feels and question yourself.
2. A collection of discoveries
Each text emerged spontaneously, the words asked to be written. It is a collection of clairvoyances that emerged after sessions of meditative work on Conscious Coaching and Deepening sessions in Biodanza.
Over the course of 3 years from 2019 to 2022, this process continued until one day it was felt that there was an order and sequence of presentation of the texts that asked to be recorded in book format, and that this way it could be shown and shared with other people.
“The Book of Feeling” is a motto of inspiration for the reader to connect to their feelings and make their own discoveries. Each text addresses the Wisdom of each one. It is a book to be explored, inviting the reader to embark on a journey that begins somewhere with limited notions of love and spirituality, navigating through feeling as a way of understanding the energetic and spiritual dimension of the Being that each one is.
3. The word and questions as meditation
In the journey proposed by the book, open questions arise, based on the self-knowledge proposal of Conscious Coaching.
Conscious Coaching is a unique methodology developed in Portugal by Master Trainer, speaker and writer Isabel Ferreira based on the work proposed in “A Course in Milagres”. A miracle seen as an instantaneous change of perception that is revealed through an open questioning directed at the natural wisdom of the Human Being.
4. The Book
It is a proposal for energy transmutation with several exercises to wake up this natural knowledge - Consciousness. In more advanced stages, the whole process is done through meditation, as presented in the final part of the book.
It is a work of developing the potential of the Human Being from Feeling.
Feel yourself visited in dimensions and perspectives that allow you to recognize transformation and transmutation potentials, through boldly embracing everything that memory and body has kept.

The Text Review
This book is being built from the invaluable contributions of some people, such as Adelaide Abreu in the text review.
It features illustration through hand-drawn and hand-painted mandalas by Teresa Santos, manda.la by Tê, a concept in which the mandala meets elements that the person recognizes as inspiration for life, as is a good example of the mandala that illustrates the cover and back cover.
The remaining mandalas that appear in the book emerged from the motto of some of the texts presented to the creator and the result in an image of the vibration felt after interacting with them.
Design and pagination
The design, graphics and layout are the work of the careful and dedicated artist Jacinta Fernandes who, with her unique talent and sensitivity, contribute to “O Livro de Sentir” being able to communicate its content with the reader based on the graphic presentation.
The cover and back cover were created by the talented Elisabete Agostinho, who uses the arts as one of her many forms of expression.
