Woman, Sister, Mother, Daughter, Grandmother

– this is a call for women from all walks of life to remember and reclaim our hidden gifts and powers. You are welcome regardless whether you are new to this world of dance or spirituality, or if you are an experienced facilitator yourself. This journey benefits all women in profound ways 🍀👭🎶🔥

We are honored to invite international dance artist and guide ZOLA DUBNIKOVA (www.zoladubnikova.com) to Warsaw (Poland), where she will offer Return to Ecstasy – Awakening the Divine Feminine, a weekend journey of movement medicine, womb activation, healing practice and sound alchemy through her revolutionary work known as the Holistic Dance Language. Through this powerful system, we reclaim and remember our deepest gifts and powers, awakening the nectars of feminine energy within to nourish, rejuvenate and empower us, body, heart and soul. When we do the practices of this work, we feel a new paradigm of presence and embodiment from which we would hope to never return.

This is a journey to open the channels of ecstasy in the body. To ignite the wild and divine feminine wisdom within our bodies. To open the inner gates, sharing daily practices, powerful rituals, and alchemical initiations. To open the pathways of ecstasy within and to return to the temple of our body, the temple of Earth. To commune with nature.

Through darkness, light and the many shades between, using the unique practices of this system, we develop the sensation of ecstasy to guide, support, transform and enhance our relationship to life. This cultivation supports navigation through difficult moments and enhances our experience of daily existence, restoring health, vibrancy and vitality. When we locate the entranceways for the physical and psychological sensation of ecstasy to penetrate us, we explore various manifestations of ecstasy in the body: ecstasy of the heart, ecstasy of the pelvis, ecstasy of the voice, ecstasy of the 5 senses, ecstasy of emptiness. Through these portals, we cultivate profound and subtle sensory awareness, entering the inner place where there is no time and no destination. We awaken sensations of ecstasy which penetrate our everyday lives and transform our experience of being human. We explore our spiritual hunger, and the original source of our longing to love and be loved, opening the door for an endless passionate love affair with the divine. We transcend culture and time, on a journey of spiritual ecstasy, dance, heart-opening, sisterhood and love. Through ceremony and ritual, we reclaim lost parts of ourselves and celebrate the cycles of life and the cosmos. In a safe container, where only women are present, all of our intentions become amplified.The practices invite us on a journey of deep remembrance, into a way of life from which we may wish to never return.

This workshop may support ANY WOMAN from ANY PHASE OF LIFE, with ANY LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE.

Holistic Dance Language

Although Holistic Dance Language is deeply shaped by years of cultural immersion in traditional dance forms, all of Zola’s offerings contain a language beyond culture and time. Full embodiment, diverse physicality, subtle body language, ritual movement and inner alchemy are the main elements of the holistic dance language curriculum. Informed by ancient traditions, infused with contemporary body science, steeped in movement medicine, and immersed in sacred dance inspired across time and world, the practices enliven our hidden (forgotten) abilities and create pathways of memory in the body. Through these practices we have the power of complete metamorphosis and improved communication at our fingertips. Earth-based foundational work guides us to trust the ground beneath us more, deepen our roots, and “fly” from a supported place. The connection to our pelvis, to the earth and to our voice gives us deeper roots. By connecting with the heart, we open the sky. Through work we gain access to deep softness, grace and powerful strength. We release blocked energy and build inner strength. We learn a unique vocabulary of movement, mudra and subtle energetic principles. Through a combination of slowed inner listening, breath/sound work, focused practice, and liberating, trance-inducing movement, we bring our prayers into the physical world and plant the seeds of our dreams, our deepest missions, into every cell of our bodies.



Zola Dubnikova bridges sacred dance, movement medicine, contemporary body science, masterful form, somatic awareness and ritual through her unique approach known as the “Holistic Dance Language.” Her extensive background fused with absolute devotion to the pursuit of dance as an ecstatic, spiritual experience, has birthed a unique style of both teaching & performing – which truly embodies the marriage between form and spirit. Trained extensively in contemporary dance forms and healing arts as well as Odissi Temple Dance Tradition, Sufi tradition, Mevlana whirling practices, Dances of the Silk Road , the gypsy trails and beyond, her style brings forth the wisdom of ancient dance ritual through a holistic lense intended to guide more people in accessing their divine capabilities. Zola offers intensive trainings in her two primary schools: Temple of Dance (Israel) and School of Mystery & Sacred Feminine Arts (India/Thailand). With invitations to teach around the world, Zola tours extensively giving seminars, offering retreats/trainings, leading collective experiences and running her Online School.

HOLYSTICK INSITUTE are a collective of great people implementing a project that was initiated by Dawid Rygielski. Its main goal is to create a space for teachers and artists who, in our opinion, share important values and the best quality. We want to expand and deepen the work of those who make this world better, providing their fruits to an increasingly wider audience.
Our initiative is also an invitation to cooperation – building a Team-Family in which there will be room not only for Teachers and Artists, but also for Healers and Farmers 🙂
