In response to the question ‘What’s Convivs?’ the quick answer is it’s a vibe. Specifically, a convivial vibe.
But what exactly is a convivial vibe?
It’s not always easy to explain this particular feeling of goodness because it’s a je ne sais quoi (transtation: ‘I don’t know a word for it’) feeling, like when something’s magically happening to your body or mind, and sometimes both simultaneously.
If you’re one of the lucky humans who knows the feeling already and practices it with friends, colleagues and people you meet, you orient pretty much everything you do, your purpose in live, around it. IYKYK. You might help someone understand a concept, collaborate on a project, or enjoy a personal hobby. Or perhaps do things for yourself, like reading what interests you for not other reason than it’s fun. Or sitting in a comfortable chair and thinking, solo. It’s whatever turns you on, as it were.
A few examples of Convivs moments:
… the feeling one gets while creating, whether professionally or simply making a pizza
… the magic guests experience at well-curated dinner parties, and fondly remember
… the frisson of pleasure felt viewing amazing art
… the moment a mentee gains insight from a mentor
… the buzz you get upon finding the others
… the trust built during positive reciprocity
… the connectedness discovering shared-interests activates
… the delight of being unexpectedly comped whilst dining out
… the pleasure achieved when a project team completes what it set out to accomplish
… the synchrony you feel when you slide into rhythm with strangers on a dance floor**
So yeah, when you’re feeling a Convivs vibe it’s a very good 😍 thing. Today, in times like these, it feels the world could use more Convivs everywhere, whether at home, while walking around town, on video calls, evenings out and about with friends, and in work situations.
