The Six Steps To Full Participation In The World

Learn About Sensitivity

Discover the DOES Model, identify the advantages and challenges of being sensitive, Discover the hidden gifts of sensitivity and reframe your self-perception to accurately reflect the good you bring to the world. 

Learn About Self Care

The unique nervous system of sensitivity brings some self-care challenges. Learn strategies that will minimize the damage caused by stress and help you be at your best.

Learn About Frameworks

Sensitive people do not connect easily with culture. They tend to connect with energy. As a result, they often struggle to connect with the world and take their place in it. Frameworks are roadmaps that show you how the world works. They give you the lay of the land so you can make good choices without having to do a deep dive every time you need to make a decision.

Develop Skills

Every sensitive person needs to develop skills in understanding the world, connecting with others, working with others and self-care. In addition, we have to develop skills that will help us support ourselves so we can create a great life.

Identify Your Home(s)

Frameworks help you know where you belong and why. They help you recognize which situations, work or personal are healthy for you so you invest your time and energy in the most productive possibilities.

Take Your Place In The World

When you understand your nature, know how to take care of yourself, understand the way the world works so that you can discover where you belong, have the skills to navigate the ever-changing nature of life then you can take your place in the world as a full participant in the evolution of the human race.

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 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.

Judith Fine-Sarchielli, Life And Marketing Coach

Maria's foundation course has helped me to shine a more reassuring and informed light on my high sensitivity. This has helped me to feel kinder to myself in the now, more positive about my past and more hopeful for the future. I feel lighter and brighter and I can share this energy with my loved ones which is a pleasure. I am delighted to have started this journey and look forward to future Emerging Sensitive courses.

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.

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.

How Long Do I Have Access To My Courses?

You have lifetime access to your course(s) which includes access any additional material added in the future to enhance the learning. 

Do You Have A Gift Program?

We are happy to offer a gift program. We have different gift amounts available so that you can offer a friend or family member a partial payment of the course fee.

Do You Have A Referral Program?

We offer generous compensation for referrals through our affiliate program. There is a link at the top of the page with details about the program.
