Krista and Fia Arias

157. A Conversation with Krista and Fia Arias of Tierra Soul Farm, a Ministry for Healing, Liberation and Cultural Repair

In this interview, the mother-daughter team Krista and Fia Arias join Emma and Mary to discuss the mission of Tierra Soul Farm in Magdalena, New Mexico, helping people and communities find well being, connection and belonging in an often confusing and complicated world. Tierra Soul Farm is an earth sanctuary, honey spa, artist hive, ministry for healing, liberation, and cultural repair. Krista Arias is a Myth Mender — an Earth Alchemist and the creator of the Lazy Lady Living program. Also, among other things, she is a nutritional therapist, restorative justice enthusiast, permaculture instructor, birth keeper, and death midwife.

Fia Arias, 17 years old, is keeper of the farm animals, big sister, daughter and aspiring sustainable, regenerative, and connected farmer. Her specialty is dairy. In this conversation, Fia reflects on her work with the animals and her coming of age in the context of an atypical upbringing, while Krista shares her thoughts about the inherent spirituality of earth connection, permaculture, indigenous wisdom and ancestral healing.
