Humans are hard-wired to operate with survival in mind. In the modern world, survival looks a lot different than it did for our ancestors. As a species, we’ve traded the threat of the literal jungle for those of our everyday life. The tools that have been baked into our biology can create roadblocks to feeling heard, having clarity, and knowing there is choice. So how do we empower ourselves and those we interact with to work with our responses? How do we break down the barriers that prevent true connection and success?

The biology of connection and success (BOCAS) is a framework for understanding our biological response to stressful situations and repatterning our behavior.
Fear and stress are part of the human experience, and our body’s response to those things is deeply rooted in our survival instinct. Although necessary, this system can get in the way of living a life full of possibility and choice. The BOCAS Method is a way of understanding this biological response and mastering it, opening up the possibility of connection and empowering us towards success.
