It is worse to stay where one does not belong at all than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and soulful kinship one requires.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Nature is not a place to visit.  It is home.

Gary Snyder

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.

David Whyte

If we surrendered to earth's intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees.

Ranier Maria Rilke

...the ultimate touchstone of friendship...is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them...

David Whyte

In wildness is the preservation of the world.

Henry David Thoreau

The stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own.

What we need now are new stories to share with each other, new tales to live into the world, which is to say, stories to make real by living our own versions of them.

Is This You?

Tired Of Overwhelm

As a sensitive person, you have a very active nervous system, attentive to all the nuances around you. Too much information and too much to process leads to self-doubt. You do a lot but often do not feel it is enough.

Life Could Be Better

You are able to make life work some of the time but work and relationships can be a struggle. You ruminate a lot. It would be great to have greater clarity to stop ruminating so much about what is not working.

Ready For Change

You have acquired a lot of experience and done a lot of inner work and yet the pieces are not coming together. How can you finally get to a place where life works for you and you are clear about where you belong?

Harness Your Sensitivity

Two Programs: Which Resonates With You?

Sensitive Evolution offers 2 programs:

  • a year-long lifetime program for sensitive people who want to understand the way the world works to release the past and direct their energies effectively
  • a movie club community focused on making life in the world easier for sensitive people. It not only delves into the practical issues of living and working as a sensitive person in today's world but also how to reimagine our lives in a world in the middle of major cultural change.
  • both? The movie club community is included in the yearlong lifetime program

The Emerging Sensitive Program is a very inner-directed journey teaching hidden patterns and frameworks so sensitive people can connect the mental, emotional and energetic aspects of themselves with the cultural and personal development models of the human world. The important skills of discernment and synthesis this develops makes it easier to release the past and provides an independent mechanism for reality checks when out in the world. The program includes concepts, exercises, and discussions. We use movies to develop an energetic understanding and connection with the concepts. We call this process Sensory Processing Yoga.

The Emerging Sensitive Movie Club program focuses on the challenges of being out in the world. It connects culture, sensitivity, and work. It helps you link your sensitivity, nature, and imagination with a grounded practicality. You get to reimagine your life while the world is reimagining itself and connect with others doing the same.

You can Investigate your preferred approach in the videos and links below. The videos explain the "why" for each program. 

PLEASE NOTE: although members of the program may achieve greater emotional comfort by learning about the "why" for some events in their past, this is not a therapy program nor a substitute for therapy. We are also not medical professionals and do not try to answer medical questions.

Emerging Sensitive Program Introduction

Emerging Sensitive Movie Club Introduction

You Are Invited!

Do you want an immersive program or are you more interested in sticking your toes in the water?

Our yearlong (and lifetime) Emerging Sensitive Program will help you understand more about your sensitivity and how to channel your energetic wisdom so that you can enjoy life more. It is a journey of inner transformation.

The Emerging Sensitive Movie Club provides a safe and creative place to explore the challenges of finding your place and living in the world. Through movies and live discussions, It invites you to reimagine possibilities for yourself and the world.

We are all conditioned to fit in and conform. However, we are created to reform and redefine to be human. Creating is all about expressing our own unique self. Maria's course material and coaching provided me with knowledge and safety to stop the resistance and move into the awareness of my being.

Tammy Junker

Maria's deep knowledge of how Highly Sensitive People work is only paired by her kindness and willingness to listen. During the course, you will be not only learning from Maria, but you will be able to actively exchange opinions, ideas, and receive feedback from her. This ongoing learning experience makes the course incredibly interactive and engaging! Moreover, the online community really does make a difference. I was able to meet like-minded people with whom I felt comfortable enough to share very private and intimate issues. I was also able to network with some of the other attendees, learning more about their life journeys and careers, which it a great added value! Basically, the course feels like a "fireside chat" with friends and colleagues in which you learn by experience. I would recommend it to anyone, not only HSPs!

Maria E. Hill is the creator of the Sensitive Evolution Course for Highly Sensitive People, (HSPs), which has been a valuable tool for my self-growth. I am 79- years old and have had many years of various therapies and many other teachings about how to understand myself and others, and find my place and role in our often confusing world.

Maria is a gentle, compassionate, and brilliant guide whose course has guided me through the stressful task of finding myself, in and out of the many variations of my personal culture. She has gifted me with a higher and deeper level of understanding my personal and work relationships, and how to deal with other Life challenges. I have learned to appreciate my HSP qualities and skills, and have more confidence as a creative leader in today’s world.

Sensitive Evolution has also helped me understand the biodynamics of other cultures and I have learned to build my patience and compassion muscles more each day as an HSP who is very different than many people. I wish that everyone could experience Maria’s creative understandings of our present cultural chaos and share in her maturity and wisdom.

Claire, Health Coach

Emerging Sensitive Course is a great opportunity to meet like-minded souls around the globe. Together with Maria and the participants, I learned how to mindfully value HSP skills. Finally, the course offered me the opportunity for a bigger picture perspective, something I highly estimate and now use in my everyday life - business and private. Last but not least I enjoy knowing that there is an HSP home out there. Maria you rock, thank you for offering this amazing opportunity! Keep doing what works so well already 🙂

Regina Reinhardt, Senior Cross-Cultural Executive Coach, Switzerland/Greece

The Emerging Sensitive course provided me with a new way of looking at myself and others, based on human evolution. This helped me to feel more understanding and less judgmental of both myself and others. It also increased my confidence in my HSP self and in my observations, thinking, and choices. In my opinion, this content should become standard public knowledge, which would really improve teamwork on every level of society.
