    I am happy to say I have 3 blog entries waiting to go up. I will post a new entry every month on (or near) the 15th. Check out Robert Litman's post that went up today! Share them with your students and post links to them on Social Media. 

    I hope you get inspired, read them all, and write one for a future posting. Please see the guidelines and send the post to me at bonnie@bonniegintis.com.  In addition to contributing to the CTA, it's free advertising!  I am getting feedback from people all over the world that the blog is well loved. (click to read more.)

    Join in and associate by writing or joining the web pod.  We need a lot of help getting the media library up. We have plans for videos, audio, articles longer than 800 words, and photos. Contact me, Tone, Sabine, or Caryn if you're interested.

    Aloha Community, 

    Outreach needs offerings of SHORT videos and podcasts for our E-blast news we are sending out EVERY 3 WEEKS to the public!!! Please contact me directly at info@continuumteachers.com with submissions. These are under 2 minutes - a breath, a perspective on some aspect of Continuum, a quick talk on open attention - whatever inspires you!

    PLEASE POST YOUR WORKSHOPS ON THE CALENDAR, as this is what we select from to post in the E-blast.

    We also need BLOGS......


    Thank you for helping us to promote YOU and to spread the CONTINUUM

    Being invited to step into the role of supporting all of you Continuum teachers to spread your offerings to a larger audience, feels like a privilege. Working with and for Susan Harper for the last five years has been so personally enriching for me, I cherish the thought of others meeting with the life-enhancing explorations that have been extended to me. ~Helene Rein

Specific Admin Support job requests will come directly from the either Tone Gilje, Web/IT Point Person, or Sabine Mead, Outreach Point Person.

    The Admin Support will also work closely with Megan Bathory-Peeler and Kim Brodey, the CTA Communications Coordinators, to provide consistency in message, appearance, and alignment of internal (Membership/Teachers’ Body) and external (Global Body) communications for the CTA.

    I am having a lot of trouble with many of the photos people are submitting for events.  Please read this to help clarify what works best.

    When you submit a photo, please look at an example of an event, like this one: https://www.continuumteachers.com/event/enstatic-explorations-continuum-and-the-inner-dance  to see what I mean. Background photos need to be horizontally oriented - wider than tall. This is the way the website was designed. A typical vertically-oriented photo (taller than wide) can't be stretched to fit the design we have for background photos.

    Photos need to be about 1MB in order to not get blurry or distorted in the process of making them fit on the website. You can change the setting on your phone to take higher resolution photos or you can get a photo from the free stock photo websites:

    www.unsplash.com

    www.pexels.com

    I can also just use the background photo from your teacher profile page if you can't come up with a good one.

    Thanks for helping to make our website a great resource,

    Bonnie

    Hi dear colleagues, I was perusing my mailing list today before sending out an email blitz (I use Constant Contact) about my 2 workshops this year (Kripalu & Omega) and noticed that many CTA members are not on my list. Let's support each other by signing up for each other's mailing lists. I love to know what you all are doing and it helps me refer people to your classes and workshops. Many of you haven't yet taken advantage of the CTA website Calendar. I urge you all to post things there. I have already gotten many inquiries and sign-ups from people who saw my workshop posted there. Let's associate with each other!

    Guidelines for CTA Blog Posts

    The CTA blog is off to a great start. Google statistics show that many people are visiting our site and reading the blogs. Please suggest them to your students and loved ones who want to know more about Continuum.

    Here are some guidelines to help you write the most effective blog posts that will fit into the format on the CTA website.

    A blog post is short and sweet, shorter than an article. It is most effective if it covers only 1, 2, or 3 points. Video and audio material, as well as longer articles will go in the Media Library (which will be up and running in a future phase of our site expansion). The blog is strictly for short written material.

    Blog posts will be limited to 800 words on the CTA website. Limiting it to 500 words would be even better. Unfortunately, too many online readers have short attention spans and don't want to read long articles. We want to you to describe what’s important and exciting, explain key concepts, or describe experiences about Continuum. We want to spark people’s curiosity and motivate them to sign up for a class or workshop.

    If any non-English-speaking teachers want to write something, but are concerned about their English, here are 2 options:

    1. I will publish it in your native language. Everything does not have to be in English!

    2. I would be happy to edit it if you need help with your English.

    We want to represent as many of us as possible!

    Come up with a catchy title and a 1-2 line introduction. Compelling titles and introductions make readers want to read your post right away. Recent studies show that 80% of people will read a headline, but only 20% will read the rest.

    People tend to read blog posts that have good photos. If you don’t have a high-resolution photo that is horizontally oriented of your own that is greater than 1 MB, I will give you a choice of several options.  Look at the blog page (https://www.continuumteachers.com/blog ) for examples of the types of photos that work.

    Search engine optimization (SEO) and Keywords:

    Imagine which words people might use to search for your blog post and be sure to put them in the first and last sentence of your post.This will give us more hits when people google common Continuum terms. For Continuum, these words might include: Continuum, fluid, fluidity, movement, breath, open attention, sound, vibration, awareness, inquiry, curiosity, exploration, sensation, health, healing, kinesthetic, perception, biomorphic, body, embodiment, creativity, or they might be different for your topic.

    Our blog format will allow you to link to other sites within your blog. For example, if you are writing about Continuum and the arts, and you want to link to Watermark Arts, be sure to include the URL website address of where you want to link (https://www.watermarkarts.org/) when you submit your blog post.

    You can submit a post that you have posted on facebook or another website, but it would be best to change it up so that when people link to your website they don’t see the same exact thing. A little change is enough to create novelty.

    Please submit all posts to Bonnie Gintis. She may suggest some edits. When the final product is ready, it will get posted to the CTA blog page.

    Here are some suggestions for topics:

    Undulant Intelligence

    The Creativity Of Our Fluid Body

    Continuum Informs Life From The Inside Out

    Why Continuum Folks Dive Instead Of Do Exercises

    Moving Inquiry Increases Possibilities

    Jungle Gym Brings Continuum Sensibility To Your Workouts

    Sound Is The Vibration Of Breath

    Don’t Eat The Menu: Clarifying The Map & The Territory

    The Body Is A Creative Event

    Curiosity & Pleasure Nurture

    Silent Felt Experience Is The Great Frontier For Exploration

    Hi everyone,

    I am so sad to have missed 7 Oaks...but I am on a writing retreat in Val David, Quebec and writing up a storm.  

    I posted a new blog by Sabine today. Please read them all and comment or at least "thumb-up" them. Suggest them to your students. They are bite-sized morsels of Continuum wisdom.

    If you haven't considered it yet, consider writing one and sending it to me. I am happy to print some in your native language, if it is not easy to write in English.  And I am happy to do a little editing. (See a previous news item for guidelines of how to write a blog entry.) 

    You could also share a blog entry on social media, or print one out for your students. 

    Spread the word!!

    much love, 

    Bonnie
