Some would say Dakini is a female messenger embodying enlightenment, an actual woman or an energy being.

Other accounts claim that gender is not the point and that Dakini transcends all duality. She dances in the sky and participates in the finite and infinite realms with wisdom, playfulness, compassion and legendary wrath.


It is thought that Dakini’s wrath can be terrible, riding through the night on the backs of wild animals representing the lunar, shadowy, frightening realms belonging to the cycle of death and rebirth of the material world.


Dakini also appears in the sunny, celestial light of formless nature of wisdom-mind. As presence and openness; she is creative, radical, courageous and the poster child for the intuitive force.

Real woman? Goddess energy? Transcender of gender identity? A reconciliation of opposites, creating an enlightened presence that we are all a part of?


In some traditions, it is believed to be essential, to invite the Dakinis into human life, because Dakinis are an important feature of the aware feminine and necessary to enter the luminous, subtle, spiritual energy of the unconditioned state. And they are the ones to call on, to get things done in the physical world.


Dakini figures are found in recorded history as far back as pre-Aryan civilisations emerging in Indian Tantras and then in Tibetan Buddhism. Dakinis can be found in Chinese and Japanese traditions too. Dakinis have made their way into the western psyche and thankfully, she is never far away.


“What is a Dakini? The above description is my best attempt at my understanding of what Dakini means and how I have used this understanding for the Dakini Deck. The more I research Dakini, the more paradoxical the definition becomes, and the meaning for me keeps evolving.” Susan


The imagery for the 30 paintings in the deck was inspired by Susan’s love for practising and teaching yoga and meditation and making art professionally for more than 30 years.

Each image can be used directly from these cards as a visual prompt to activate the imagination and intuition. The text Susan has created to accompany each card draws from universal wisdom found in Yoga, Tarot and Dakini traditions worldwide.



“It was the late 70’s in Martha’s Vineyard. My friend, Cindy, called me because she had a crush on Viviane, a beautiful raven-haired witch from Paris. And she wanted to know if I would go with her to a tarot class Viviane was giving that night in Vineyard Haven, a cemetery at midnight? It all sounded so scary and weird and wildly mysterious but since Cindy really didn’t want to go alone, I said yes! And there we were, blown away, sitting on the still warm earth under watchful trees, their leaves softly active... and above us, lacy clouds moving in front of a tremendous stationary full moon. We sat and learnt, wide-eyed, next to generations of gravestones. Since that night I have done thousands of readings, never again in a graveyard, from various decks for friends and myself.” - Susan
