Roots. The Return to the Inner Temple
“Dear ones across time and worlds!
It is time to return to the Temple!
Not the temple of gods, prophets, deities and laws,
But the Temple of all humanity,
The Temple of the Heart!”
The music video “ROOTS” arose from the timeless soul connection, shared vision and collaborative work between Estas Tonne & Zola Dubnikova. As an incredibly devoted holistic dance artist and teacher, Zola transmits arcane knowledge to women across the world, guiding them back to their sacred nature.
Since its recording in 2012, the soundtrack “Roots” was not released to the public, yet Zola used it widely in her numerous offerings throughout the world. In 2015, while working on the completion of “Mother of Souls” album (a musical project created as the result of Estas’ collaboration with musicians from different corners of the globe), there was a strong calling to film Zola’s ”holistic dance language” experience. Thus, due to the diligent efforts of visual artist Giedrius Dagys who is endowed with the unique ability to catch the beauty of the moment through his camera, a short video about this marvellous ritual dance was captured and or lovingly edited, followed by fine-tuning of the original track by extremely talented sound engineer, Leon Galperin.
“May we remember that Roots grow when we listen to the call guiding us from inside, the call that leads us to our soul family and guides us to the path of truth, giving us a “home” wherever we may be.” – ZD
With a heart full of love and profound gratitude to all sister-hearts who trusted to be filmed during the deep meditative practices and all those participating.

ROOTS. THE RETURN TO THE INNER TEMPLE
Text: Zola Dubnikova
It is our responsibility to dance
to embody the essence of our true divinity
In our souls we are all dancers
we are all have something powerful to say
when we are in tune with the rhythms of the earth
with our inner rhythm
we know how to walk on the edge of time and worlds
the deep support underneath our own feet
the mystical force
from which we all come
who nourishes us
who hosts us unconditionally
the life giver
and the portal to the other side
Dear beings across time and worlds
it is timе for us all to return to the temple
not the temple of gods
but the temple of all humanity
the temple of the heart
It is our responsibility to see beyond the stories
and to manifest change
and this journey begins within each of us
and each man
it is time to remember!
