Hatshepsut Queen of Commerce
Queen Hatshepsut ruled ancient Kemet (Egypt) from 1479 to 1458 BC; she was the longest reigning female pharaoh in history. During her 21 year reign Queen Hatshepsut used commerce as a tool to raise consciousness and a spiritual path towards self-realization. A merchant priesthood was developed to teach and utilize the concept of Sacred Commerce to achieve the vision of the first queen of commerce.
Sacred Commerce is a wonderful book by Aymen Sawaf and Rowan Gabrielle. This work serves as a foundation for a movement focused on revitalizing Hatshepsut’s concept of reconnecting commerce and spiritually. People, Planet, Profit and spiritually are the four bottom lines in sacred commerce. Profit is the only bottom in most businesses in today’s world.
Many well argue that the thought of connecting commerce and spiritually is not realistic in the competitive business environment we live in “however”; there are a growing number of entrepreneurs who are beginning to realize that success can be achieved by making people and the planet important bottom lines in their strategic business plans.
On Saturday April 28th the first annual Sacred Commerce Wellness Expo will be one of the events to kick of Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2018. This event will take place at Imagenations’s Raw Space Gallery located at 2031 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. (bet. 121 and 122nd streets). Thirteen holistic wellness businesses will be invited to exhibit at this event which will be free to the public. The number 13 is a very spiritual and powerful number in Kemetic philosophy.

It is a very interesting account of how Queen Hatshepsut used this method of commerce to enrich a golden time in ancient Kemet. It is also a blue print of how businesses of the future can be. All things are possible with faith.
