Dakinis and Humans 

The passage below from Passionate Enlightenment: Women in Tantric Buddhism by Miranda Shaw, who is familiar with The Tantric Dance of Feminine Power, describes the dance transmissions of healing and empowerment that adepts can provide through The Dance:

“As described in ancient texts, female divinities (termed yogini, dakini, matrka) are invoked […] and bodied forth by human women, who dance in an ecstatic state of trance-identification. The yoginis undergo transfiguration before all present, taking on an appearance and movements of their divine counterparts. The enraptured women, ornamented as dieties, flushed with dancing, and glowing with heightened awareness, could then receive worship, bestow blessings, and confer magical powers.”
