About Us


The Heretic is an independent publication launched during the course of the unique and exciting events that unfolded during the year 2020. We came together with an idea to create a time capsule in a form of a publication that would shed a light on the changing landscape under our feet. In an attempt to make sense as well as capture the essence of the irreversible change and shift in consciousness that has taken place on a global scale, simultaneously. We are still feeling the aftershock of that upheaval and emergence, four years on where a pervasive lack of clarity persists.


Through this publications we want to amplify the voices of the heretics of the world, those that want to productively question, sit with the discomfort and confusion, and explore what they notice. We want to pose provocative questions, but not necessarily provide answers, for we believe that the quest is almost more important than the destination. And there the answers reveal themselves.

The Heretic is a non profit subsidiary of Heresy Consulting Ltd. We do not expect payments to feature contributors, nor do we offer monetary compensation for those that contribute. None of our editors make profit from this publication, whereby all profits made by your generous donations are used to cover only the
running costs.
