Agni & Ojas: Transformation and Resilience

Agni & Ojas: Transformation and Resilience

Carrie Demers, MD

In ayurveda, agni and ojas are two of the main forces that support vitality, resilience, and joy in our lives. Agni—the fire of digestion and transformation located at the solar plexus—requires ojas as a container for its fire to burn, and ojas—the vital sap that contains our innate resilience—relies on the transformational processes of agni to initiate its regenerative properties. Dr. Carrie Demers explores the interconnected nature of these forces, and their roles in promoting a lifetime of wellness.
