The Emerging Sensitive Program

Transform Your Sensitivity Into An Asset And A Joy

Sensitivity people are taught that they are weak and "less than." Nothing could be further from the truth!

The Emerging Sensitive Program provides you with the tools and perspectives you need to claim a life that is fulfilling and joyful.

Do you sometimes feel like you are upside down in a world that is right side up (or the other way around)?

You may have heard people say that you should embrace your sensitivity. I know I have. But what does that mean, really? How do you integrate your sensitive perceptions with a world that operates differently? How do you develop trust, self-trust and confidence not only about who you are but also the decisions and choices you make? How do you transform self-doubt into a reliable wisdom?

The Emerging Sensitive course tackles this issue head-on through a deep dive into:

  • the upside of the sensitive identity.
  • an important cultural framework that gives you the "why" to explain your social experiences and release you from misperceptions about the past.
  • an energy-based framework that makes personal growth easier and more natural
  • a pathway for identifying and finding your place in the world.

The Emerging Sensitive Program helps you get your footing in life by providing you with a sophisticated understanding of the way the world works so that old misunderstandings, disconnects with others, and unresolved wounds can be released and replaced with new wisdom and inner security.

The Emerging Sensitive program is more than concepts. It connects patterns of life with our energies and experience. It provides a direct experience of the patterns and ideas in the course so you can have a lived experience of the material - an excellent way to learn and gain ownership of new ways of looking at the world.

The Emerging Sensitive Program is an insight-based, connect the dots learning experience that helps you develop a new skill.

With new perspectives and a new understanding about where you will find compatible people and work, you can write a new story, your story and feel good about the options you have and choices you can make. 

Would you like to end the struggles that keep you from having a life of freedom and joy?


Why Is Sensitivity A Challenge?

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

In truth, sensitivity to nuance demands a lot of processing which can take a lifetime in our complex and overwhelming world. As a result, it is difficult to digest all the awareness that a sensitive person has to get to a place where you know how to use your sensitivity well. That's the bad news. The good news is that there are solutions that help you harness your sensitivity and natural gifts so you can function well and in a way that satisfies your soul.

You do not have to do it the hard way!

The Emerging Sensitive Program is a practical, hands-on course for claiming the value in your sensitivity, understanding the hidden frameworks of culture and energy so that you can find your natural "home" in the world with a new perspective. You deserve the inner security of knowing you can navigate the world and handle differences with ease.

You will tackle and overcome:

  • the hurtful legacy of being misunderstood 
  • overwhelm caused by the intense, high-volume, high-speed world we live in 
  • the self-doubt that comes from not being able to process information fast enough 
  • mental, emotional and energetic clutter that makes focusing difficult 
  • confusion about why the world is the way it is 
  • the challenge of creating trust with others when you are different.

Through this course you will:

  • discover a new appreciation and respect for yourself and your sensitivity
  • be more relaxed because your mind (and inner critic) will be more on your side 
  • resolve old problems and let go of issues and concerns that do not belong to you
  • find a new clarity about the way the world works that makes focusing much easier
  • find more inner and outer freedom to create more of what you want in life.
  • develop the discernment that will give you a grounded confidence.
  • discover the insights you need to connect your story with the changing story of the world during this time of cultural change.

Best of all, you will become a part of a new community of other sensitive people working together to make their lives joyful and rewarding.


The Power Of Patterns

Over 12 months you will take a journey through the hidden frameworks of culture, nature and personal development that support the expression of your best and authentic self. This journey will weave culture, archetypes, skills, values, and energetic qualities so that each month you reclaim the gifts that are yours as part of the human story.

Patterns provide you with the building blocks of life so that you can connect your sensitivity to nuance with the world around you successfully. 

Connecting the dots that you feel in the energies around you with various structures seen and unseen will provide you with a solid base so you can feel safe in the world as your best and real self.  

Each month we will have a new focus and weave the three anchors of the program together with our sensitivity to continually assess, reassess and reclaim all of our energies. Each week we will explore one of the anchors and connect each with the others so you have a complete experience of the concepts, energies and how they matter. You will be able to rediscover aspects of yourself, let go of old unresolved problems because of new insights and know what is yours and what is not. 

The Emerging Sensitive Program gives you the "why" behind the events and relationship disconnects you have experienced so you can let go of that which does not serve you. By making the invisible visible, you will lay claim to the life you would like to live. 

The Three Anchors: The Core Of The Program

Learning about the sensitive trait is only the first step in mastering your trait. In order to be truly effective and constructive in the world, sensitive people need to master some additional tools and skills to be able to connect with culture in meaningful and constructive ways.  The Emerging Sensitive Program helps you develop these additional anchors so that you can live the life you dream of. 

There are 3 interrelated anchors:

  1. 8 Cultural Frameworks,
  2. 8 Co-Creator Skills
  3. 8 Soulcentric Development Steps. 

The monthly program will be a deep dive that connects them providing you with a rich understanding of each and how they relate. As a result not only will you have great awarenesses, but you will also start to develop a sophisticated capacity to synthesize the framework information to develop accurate and compassionate perceptions. Your mind will be on your side rather than stuck in ruminating; you will be able to release self-doubt by having the "why's" for past events. The frameworks will provide you with important roadmaps for processing your sensitive awareness and channeling your energy in constructive ways.

Cultural Frameworks

Sensitive people connect with energy more than culture. Understanding cultural frameworks means that sensitive people now know how relationships and social situations work, why they have not in the past, and how to use their sensitive gifts and insights effectively. You will learn to identify the gifts of past cultural systems so you can fully claim all of your energies and use them wisely. You will also be able to locate kindred spirits and compatible environments for work and friendship.

Co-Creator Skills

The patterns of human development give us the tools to move into a co-creator role with the universe. Once you have clarity about each stage of development, you can minimize toxicity in your life and harness your sensitive gifts. You will be able to understand why you have rejected some energies, and also understand pitfalls around energies you may embrace.  A new and constructive perspective will help you feel energized and whole.

The Soul's Process

Our inner self or soul is our guide to our connection with the natural unfolding of life. It helps us understand where we are energetically and why sometimes our energies may feel out of alignment especially with the world around us. Connecting with this process helps us listen to our energy from a more informed place so we invest our energy wisely.

The Emerging Sensitive Movie Club: Reimagine Your Life

The Emerging Sensitive Program is an introspective journey to free you from perceptions and narratives that may be holding you back. The Emerging Sensitive Movie Club has a more external focus to explore new possibilities. It is a special private place where you can connect with other individuals in the Emerging Sensitive Program. You will be able to take advantage of the additional opportunities that the community offers to connect your gifts with a world in the midst of major cultural change.

One of the barriers to change is that our imaginations often struggle to find a pathway forward. Through the insights of other sensitive people creating pathways for sensitive people and pioneers in cultural transformation, you will be able to reimagine your life and your possibilities. Think of it as sensory processing yoga.

We will be looking at change through the narratives of change and the energies that are needed to effect change. We will be taking both an imaginative and practical approach to creating effective change because you need both to create something new. We will be doing this through movies, discussion groups and other information.

To access our imaginative potential, the Emerging Sensitive community provides sensitive people and empaths with:

      • insights and distinctions that activate their inner wisdom and inner strength.
      • insights from sensitive people on how to turn the natural gifts of sensitivity into a gift to the world.
      • information about inspiring and positive initiatives in the new communally-oriented Caring Culture which offers healthier and more rewarding opportunities for sensitive people.
      • the ability to get their "sea legs" around the cultural transformation taking place.
      • the opportunity to develop creative and collaborative skills and potentials.
      • an open forum for addressing issues around risk.
      • skills and tools for the conversations of work and life.
      • space for the support and camaraderie we need for the journey.

Our program of sensory processing yoga will provide you additional opportunities to discover your voice and use it in a constructive and ecological way so that your sensitivity becomes the gift it was meant to be. 

Claim Your Voice As A Sensitive Person

Navigate The World With Ease

There is nothing wrong with sensitive people. The challenge, however, is to make sense of the world in order to be effective. The world can be very structured and given the wide variety of cultures in different ways. However, sensitive people with their hyperactive nervous systems connect more with flow, which means they do not connect so easily with culture. It is not a weakness. Non-sensitive people do not connect with flow so easily so each has a different strength. 

Mastering patterns and frameworks provide you with the ability to connect your sensitive strengths with the world around you. They are the keys to harnessing your sensitivity energy in a positive and productive way. Once you understand them you will feel much more comfortable and confident about your ability to navigate the world and create the life you want.

In the Emerging Sensitive Program, you will

  • discover a framework that makes sense of human and cultural differences.
  • become clear about the different social contracts that result in disharmony in the world.
  • go on a journey through time to discover your natural home in the cultural landscape.
  • locate your tribe and understand your tribes value as part of the evolution of the world.
  • discover how your tribe shows up in the world so you can find your kindred spirits easier.


Harness Your Natural Gifts

As individuals, we are in a never-ending process of growth and personal development. Once you understand the patterns behind our natural development, you will understand why you are uncomfortable with certain energies and may have pushed them aside. You can then reclaim these energies when you can see how to skillfully harness them for your benefit and the benefit of others. You will

  • understand why some energies do not resonate with you.
  • learn how to identify "building block" energies for greater effectiveness in the world.
  • find out why none of your experience or past is wasted.
  • transform the past into an asset.
  • learn how to let go and release old memories without pain.


Sync With Your Soul's Intentions

Our soul or inner self is a guide for our development and is, in turn, guided by the natural unfolding process of nature.  One of the great gifts of being sensitive is a deep connection with nature. It means that sensitive people are naturally in tune with the soul's process that leads us from childhood to taking our natural and authentic place in the world. 

In the Emerging Sensitive Program, you will

    • learn why you are naturally authentic.
    • discover the natural path of personal development.
    • connect the soul's path and modern culture to make sense of your discomfort with modern life.
    • learn the soul-based signs of life change.
    • use nature-based practices to support and strengthen yourself. 

You have the music you now just need to know how to play the notes.


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!

Ginevra Are, Intercultural Trainer from Italy relocated to LA

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.


The Magic Of Frameworks

Nothing helps you process information and reduce overwhelm better than frameworks. They are the patterns of culture and personal development that we have been discussing. Frameworks are like road maps. They give you the "lay of the land". They show you information that may be hidden from view so that you can make wise decisions. Frameworks provide a way to understand the hidden patterns of culture and talent, which when used well, make it much easier to navigate the world and focus on what will bring you the greatest joy and reward in life. Frameworks are a bridge that helps you connect your sensitive story with the story of the world.

The video below introduces 14 benefits of frameworks for sensitive people.

They will explain how you can release the past, and be more effective in the present. Discover the tool that makes sensitivity work!

The course was 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.

The course is by design self-paced. You can go as fast or as slow as you would like and learn according to your own learning style. 
Each week you will receive a minimum of three to as many as 12 different types of information including videos, audios, articles about concepts and applying them to your life. Each month we will offer additional mini-courses on the frameworks as well as specialty courses. March is an example of this: we offer a special mini-course on the sensitive trait during this month.
Several times per month you will access recorded calls that help you see how the concepts work. It is important for you to see someone using the information so you have an idea of how to apply it.  In addition, we offer our popular discussion calls each month on movies and videos related to the month's learning. For ongoing support and connecting with others, you can participate in the Emerging Sensitive Community. 
Invest the time that you want each week. The program is a lifetime program because most people work on the material over several years to learn the concepts, see how to use the ideas, and then integrate them into your life as a skill. You will need about two to three hours per week of your time. The calls will be one hour 2x per month. Then any additional time you want to put into the community connecting with others is optional but recommended. We have a good group of kind and smart people here for you to enjoy.
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 - and an adventure!. 

You have lifetime access to the program. That includes being able to participate in calls in future years and access to all the additional material added to enhance the learning. 

We are happy to offer a gift program for any of our programs available through the checkout process.  Our gift program can be used as a birthday or holiday gift. It is available at any time of the year. 

We offer generous compensation for referrals through our affiliate program.
