The Review Of The Emerging Sensitive By Ane Axford, Sensitive Leadership
“The Emerging Sensitive is an essential resource in supporting highly sensitive people in showing up in relevant ways, and not at a cost to them. It is full of great resources to help a spectrum of highly sensitive people in finding their place and bring their gifts to light.”
“The Emerging Sensitive is an essential resource in supporting highly sensitive people in showing up in relevant ways, and not at a cost to them. The culture we live in has created many challenges to sensitivity and those who are more highly sensitive. Connection has created pain and therefore avoidance for many highly sensitive people. The cost to being present has been the sensitive self. But, it is changing. It needs to change further. I believe our culture will change the more highly sensitive people can join in and offer themselves genuinely, without compromise. I believe strongly in changing the way we all use sensitivity, and this book is a solid contribution to that effort. It is full of great resources to help a spectrum of highly sensitive people in finding their place and bring their gifts to light.”
5 Star Review by Hilary Hawkes for Readers’ Favorite Of The Emerging Sensitive
Maria Hill’s book will be immensely useful and enlightening for anyone who knows or who suspects they may be HSP. The Emerging Sensitive draws on a wealth of well-researched information and it is written in a positive and empathetic style, with terms and theories explained. This will enable readers to begin to understand their innate traits, heal their past hurts, and learn how to function alongside others in a way that is authentic and true to themselves. I was fascinated by the author’s explanations of the way in which humans and the way our societies have been made up has evolved and changed and is changing still – and that movements away from materialistic and cultural systems to more egalitarian and inclusive societies will favor the contributions and abilities of HSPs. The sections on advice on self-care, developing self-assertion and turning sensitivities into assets are sensible, inspiring and doable, and should help HSPs begin to deal with the learned negative self-image, shame and lack of belief they may have spent their lives struggling with. Maria Hill understands the Highly Sensitive Person and the challenges they have always faced – and her hopeful book offers a way to heal emotionally and begin to become “who you were meant to be”. Recommended.
5 Star Review by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite Of The Emerging Sensitive
Your Place in the World is a self-help book written by Maria Hill. Hill discusses a subset of the population who she and others have defined as being highly sensitive people based on Dr. Elaine Aron’s DOES model. She then offers readers who feel they fit within the spectrum a number of ways to understand and function in the non-sensitive culture they find themselves in through the use of frameworks. Many Highly Sensitive persons may find difficulty fitting into the competitive world of business; however, Hill shows how our culture is slowly evolving into one in which the skills and enhanced perception of the Highly Sensitive person will be more in demand. She also discusses ways for such people to develop and apply their unique skills in today’s culture. The author provides a wealth of links, books, and other resources in her appendix.
Maria Hill’s non-fiction self-help book, The Emerging Sensitive: A Guide for Finding Your Place in the World, is a fascinating and well-researched work that will help Highly Sensitive people understand who and what they are, and how their abilities can make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. I recognized in myself some of the traits Hill discusses and found I was finally able to understand why I seemed slow to process new information or make decisions compared to others while being a relatively intelligent person. Hill’s work sometimes seems like a sociological or an anthropological treatise, but, at all times, her message is clearly and effectively communicated to the reader. I loved reading her analysis of the history of human culture and was heartened by the optimistic predictions she offers. Her appendix is outstanding and chock-full of resources and support. The Emerging Sensitive: A Guide for Finding Your Place in the World is most highly recommended.
