Have You Wanted To Say, "Enough Is enough!"?

Are you constantly feeling out of sync with the world and people around you because your values are different?


Are you drowning under the weight of unresolved problems, including social ills and violence?


Do social negativity and verbal violence have you retreating from life out of self-preservation?


Do you ever feel like you cannot handle more conflict caused by our difficult times and fear for your survival?


Are you confused about what to change or how to change and feel stuck in the same problems over and over so you are feeling more discouraged?


Do you balk at living on your own terms because you do not fully believe in yourself?

Misery isn't our normal and shouldn't be yours either!

How I Went From Fear To Joy-Based Living

My name is Maria Hill. I grew up in an intensely authoritarian and fear-based family with all the negativity that comes with that. I knew from an early age that something was wrong. I also tried to influence the negativity around me and failed miserably. I was baffled about why life was so miserable when it did not have to be. What I did not know was that changing from a fear-based life to a joy-centered one was more involved than I thought, but I intended to find a way.

A lot of people like myself are doing beautiful work to improve how they show up in the world. I admire anyone who bravely challenges themselves. I am on that path myself. One mystery for me was why with all of the work I was doing, the problems of negativity were not going away. It was only when I discovered some frameworks around culture and personal development that I had the insights I needed to release myself from the false system of authoritarianism. To do that, I developed the knowledge, energy tools, and foundations for living in a joy-based place. I discovered I needed a lot more than techniques to make this journey. Some people think it is impossible to heal from authoritarianism. I know that is not true if you know the hidden patterns about how culture works and the energy skills, practices, and a pathway that frees you from its toxicity.

I created the Magic of Joy to share what I have learned so people can shift from a fear-based life to a joy-based one. It is a pathway that clears the negative inheritance of the past, rebalances the masculine and feminine energies, provides energy practices for gentle and profound shifts, aligns mind, body, emotions, and energy, and helps you reclaim and express your authentic self. The result is a transformation to a happier, freer, and joy-based life for yourself and others.

I am a coach, the creator of Sensitive Evolution, a platform for sensitive people, and the author of The Emerging Sensitive: A Guide For Finding Your Place In The World.

I am also a Reiki Master, a Certified Theta Healer, long-time meditator, and I have incorporated many Ayurveda practices into my life. In addition, I am an abstract painter and have a lifelong interest in human and animal rights.

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.

A Hidden Gem - A Magical Adventure


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!

Profound Depth - Fresh - Uplifting


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.”

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

The course is offered over an 8-week span. Each week you will have 7-12 videos which are relatively short in order to learn some important concepts about culture, energy, identity, and these changing times. I would allow several house for the videos so you have a chance to digest the material and I would suggest doing some journaling also. The calls are weekly on Sundays. You will need 1 1/2 hours for the calls. I would also suggest that you make time to connect with others in the program and enjoy the content of the monthly program.
