Asea Thompson (aka Militant Unicorn) is a Creative, Healer, and Community activist who uses the arts and energy healing as a catalyst for change. Asea pursued Interior Design because of her desire to positively impact people’s lives and overall well-being through the power of quality design. Pursuing Interior Design made her realize she had an immense interest in the aesthetics and livability of the built urban environment which led her to Cornell University where she earned her master’s degree in City and Regional Planning. While at Cornell, she focused on Creative Placemaking and Community Preservation with the arts being the planning technique. Moreover, during graduate school, Asea became interested in the holistic and participatory approach to community development, which moved her to become actively involved in her community as an advocate and active volunteer. Also, as a Creative Placekeeper and Space Planning Specialist, she created Militant Universe which is an initiative centered on intentional safe spaces for people of the African diaspora. As a result, she began a two year work exchange program with MINKA BK Apothecary where I received Somatic Therapy and became certified as a Reiki II practitioner in 2020. Spirit saw it more fitting for her to be a helper in the mission of healing and venerating Mother Earth through the power of energy healing work and counseling.
