Magic Of Joy Course Testimonials


The Magic of Joy course is a hidden gem. A gem that is polished and beautiful.

I've followed many courses in personal development, but this one is different. Maria has built a course that connects the dots. The dots of my past, which haven't always been easy, and with an overwhelm of EMOTION. Maria has helped me to THINK and UNDERSTAND why those dots were a struggle and given me space to not identify myself as much with the negative. Those dots can actually become a smily goofy picture!

Throughout this magical adventure (not a journey! It didn't feel laborious at all!) she has designed a toolkit for the head, heart, and soul (tools, poetry, meditations, videos, calls, email exchanges), which have led me to this deeper overall sense of Joyful possibility. I am so grateful and excited about the future!

Maria's program offers a fresh and well-researched take on empaths and human development. The learning and growth, and camaraderie for empaths are wonderful. And combined with the healing sessions that are incorporated, this Sunday morning class has become my uplifting and educational form of 'going to church'. Because there is so much in the Magic Of Joy course, a profound depth, I've been joining in repeatedly and will continue to do so."

I  am a sensitive, heart-centered introvert with emotional trauma in my background.  It sounds pretty bad when I put all that in one sentence, but I share it because I want to let everyone know how much Maria Hill's programs have changed my life.

I went from a shy and frightened person who always focused on what could potentially go wrong to a person who is hopeful, joyful, optimistic, and feels ready to handle the good and bad things that happen.  I've been working with Maria Hill for seven years, and she has changed my life.  Let her do the same for you.

Emerging Sensitive Course Testimonials


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 🙂

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.

"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 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. 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."



"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."



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's course helps fill the sorely needed information gap on High Sensitivity, while also offering the opportunity for coaching and support, insightful private reflection and - this is rare, too - connection with a community of like-minded individuals. As an HSP I can't stress enough what a difference it made to my life to participate in the course (and I was already familiar with the concept of High sensitivity). The HSP struggle is real - no reason to go it alone. The Emerging Sensitive Course is a highly recommended resource!!



This course opened up a whole new perspective on the world for me. I learned ideas about culture and nature and how different personalities interact with culture and nature. The role HSPs play in these frameworks really helped me understand what to hold onto and what to let go of in life.

Sensitive Evolution is the voice that I keep quiet. It speaks up and validates.



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.

Popa Mihai


I always wondered about my sensitivity and wrote it off as I didn't want to attract attention. Until this blog came along. Now I feel a lot less alone and have gained understanding about how to handle my sensitivity better, especially in stressful situations. Thanks, Maria!



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



It's nice not to feel so isolated. I have always been aware that I experience the world in a way that many others feel is odd. In my senior years I am looking to preserve my energy, and quite enjoy the richness of life that it has afforded me. Toni

Everything I read on the Sensitive Evolution blog is so 'spot on'. It's like your answering the questions in my subconscious. Thank you.



Dealing with many different sites and social networks which speak on the Highly Sensitive and Introverts, Sensitive Evolution is the one that seems refreshing, light, and not overstimulating. No flashing banners, type A personalities, nor drama. I greatly appreciate this site.

Kevin Thomas


What I appreciate most about the Sensitive Evolution 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 just love reading the Sensitive Evolution and find all of the material very beneficial and informative. I can relate to nearly every post and have really found a new outlook about myself and my place in this world through Maria's writing. I have known that I was Highly Sensitive for quite some time now but have just recently started researching and gathering information about the trait in hopes to help better my life and hopefully family members as well. Her blog and website are chalk full of valuable information to help all HSPs out there. Thank you Maria for all that you do for us.

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 does help me feel like I belong.

Karen Droege


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.

Tuula Ahde


Sensitive Evolution is both affirming and validating of what it means to be a HSP. It confirms who I am as a person despite the lack of understanding or compassion from friends or family members who simply do not get it. Thank you Maria Hill for all you do for HSP's and looking forward to more documentaries like"Sensitive"

Michele Renee Renaud


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 am very curious in reading about HSP articles especially since I find that it helps me understand myself better and also the different personality traits of being a highly sensitive person. Ever since I have read the articles I feel there are similar people in this world who share what I feel and who share their experiences which helps a great deal. Thank You Ms. Maria Hill for everything that you do and God Bless You.

Walter Paul Dsouza


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



In my experience what most people crave is to be understood and loved. Learning about the HSP trait and understanding it better has helped me tremendously. The information helped validate experiences. Sensitive Evolution goes a long way to meeting those two basic needs of being understood and thus loving oneself better and creating a more whole person to give back. Thanks.

Maria Cross


I am so thankful to know other people have the same dealings I do.

Kim Baermann


This helps so much with my clients and children!

Kris Sands


I enjoy the community Sensitive Evolution provides. It's nice to have something so specific to how I am in the world.



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



I like to learn about my life as I have spent it...wondering about myself. Of course,I choose the material among all your posts..that suits me as I am 60 years old.



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 think that other people generally think that HSP is a synonym for dysfunctional, they can't see why we need to wind down more than anyone else. On the flip side, they are unable to appreciate our rich inner worlds, which I would not trade to fit in with non-HSPs. So it would be beneficial to know how to try to close the gap that exists between us and them, as feelings of rejection and inadequacy lead to both mental and physical health problems

The newsletter has helped me feel more accepted as a highly sensitive person.

Pam Martin


I am just so thankful to have a support group that understands my 'feelings' which can cause great joy for others in my life as well as, unfortunately, great strife as well...while all along my hsp (trait) creates such dilemmas. Thank you.



It's good to not be alone. It allows for an exploration of sensitivity rather than a desire to pretend to be different!

Letitia Noel


HSPs are always in need of and searching for information, direction reading and exploring what they know of themselves and the world. This site is full of expansion and timely for all of us. I recommend it highly.



Hsp helps me feel like I belong. That there are others like me. That we are not flawed like what we were brought up to think. I'd like to use my hsp (trait) as strength.



Sensitive Evolution has been extremely informative in providing information & experiences regarding challenges I experience and I greatly appreciate the learning & knowledge I gain from the articles published.

Lisa Kleinsasser


I am 60 years old. I have only known for about 2 years that I am HSP. For my entire life I thought I had ESP or maybe, I was full of shame for coming from a broken family, as a small child.. I now think that it is great that we are sensitive.

Mari Ayotte


Maria Hill's HSP Newsletter is always filled with very valuable and inspiring information. Maria is a unique teacher and coach. As a longtime HSP, I have researched and read books about this challenge for more than 6 years. Maria has a refreshing and unique take on what it means to be an HSP and her newsletters always contain up-to-date and unique information. I am very grateful for Maria's expertise because her point of view always resonates with me.

Judith Fine-Sarchielli


Every time I read the Sensitive Evolution blog, I feel like I am normal and I am reassured about the fact I have a place in this world, what I often doubt.



Thank you all so much. It truly does help me feel understood and relieved to relate to all of your inspiring posts :). I am no longer all alone in this

Alicia Clayton


Thanks ever so much for the information you provide through your blog. It has helped me to develop an entirely different frame of reference from which to deal with life's challenges. I now come from a place of core strength and appreciation for my gifts, and use them very successfully. This is a vast difference from my early teachings that something was wrong with me. Well done, I look forward to the videos!



I am finally coming to understand who I am, and am not, and know that I am okay being a HSP. My biggest struggle is the work atmosphere and finding a job where I can best utilize my strengths; so the articles and comments by others is greatly appreciated
