The Sensitive Trait Course

Turn Your Sensitivity Into The Gift It Was Meant To Be!

You are sensitive. So what do you do with it? That's the big question.

You may hear people say that sensitivity is a gift - and it is - however it is not clear how to claim this gift and put it to good use. One huge problem for sensitive people is that they sometimes drown in all of the conflicting energies and information around them and that applies to their identity as well. 

There are solutions to these challenges. We work on many of them in this course which covers the DOES model by Dr. Elaine Aron as well as the advantages and challenges of sensitivity.

Knowing the basics of your sensitivity is the first step. You also have to be able to claim the good that you offer and develop strategies for the challenges of being sensitive. You have to identify a more accurate perception of the value of sensitivity and begin to see how it adds value to the world. By claiming the good in the sensitive trait, you open yourself to new possibilities in life.

Everything I read on the HSP blog is so ‘spot on’. It’s like you're answering the questions in my subconscious. Thank you. 


Sensitive Evolution offers some of the most refined truths about the characteristics of high sensitivity. There are articles here about how to develop my creativity, how to avoid overstimulation burnout, how to build strong personal boundaries which have raised my quality of life. Thanks.

What I appreciate most about the HSP (Health) information is the upbeat energy. I find to be HS is to see and feel the most sublime aspects of reality. To see more and more articles that address this aspect is reassuring and that many times to be HS is also to be a Cultural Creative Visionary.

I appreciate your posts because they bring aha moments (a lot of them). I only discovered that HSP was even a thing in 2011. That was when a giant light bulb went off. Finding out about it changed my life in helping me to understand why I was the way I was and also how I could help myself be more prepared to deal with overwhelming situations. Finding out about it just scratched the surface. Reading your blog posts help me to understand even more fully, often pointing out things I didn’t even connect myself. It’s difficult figuring it all out when a lot of the people around me don’t understand it so finding a place that helps me feel like I belong.

Sensitive Evolution has been one of the main resources in my journey to know about HSP. Maria’s blog posts are always insightful as well as professional and her way to communicate is very compassionate.

Discovering my sensitivity is a trait and not a problem has been life changing and so very empowering.



Reading Sensitive Evolution reminds me that it’s not only ok to be highly sensitive but it has its blessings too. Also, that I am not alone in this and to embrace my sensitivity.



I was overjoyed to discover Sensitive Evolution. I spent a lot of time wondering what was wrong with me and why I felt different to others. I am now able to better understand the issues that come with being a highly sensitive person and to know I am not alone. Thank you.


Nicole Shields

I love materials from this blog. They are wise and encouraging. Thank you.



I find it very interesting and validating as it’s sometimes scary being a highly sensitive male in this macho world.

Who Teaches The Courses?

The courses were created by Maria Hill, founder of Sensitive Evolution.  She is lifelong explorer and synthesizer of the sensitive experience. Her explorations of old wisdom and new emerging frameworks give her a unique perspective on the experience of sensitive people and their potential contribution to the world.

Maria is the author of The Emerging Sensitive: A Guide For Finding Your Place In The World, through which sensitive people can discover their natural place in a changing world. Her special gift comes from her understanding of the relationship between the sensitive experience and the hidden frameworks that drive human development and culture. She is committed to helping sensitive people acquire the tools to transform their understanding of themselves and their life journey so their talents and lived experience becomes an asset and source of joy.

You can visit this link to see her background.


How Much Time Do The Courses Take?

The courses are by design self-paced. You can go as fast or as slow as you would like and learn according to your own learning style.
The course information is offered in bite-size pieces so that you can take your time and give full attention to yourself and your needs. 
The important thing is that you take in the concepts and allow yourself to be with the ideas and information because they are freeing and the learning process is meant to be a natural one. What happens for many people is that when they are going about your day they start to consider the ideas in light of what they are doing and people have lots of little lightbulb moments or opportunities to reconsider something that has bothered them. It all happens as a series of baby steps. It is truly a journey.
