Anna Murray: the power of patterns

Anna sees and thinks in patterns. As a child, she carried around a notebook and recorded things that changed and how things were related to each other.  She explores what it is like to live guided by patterns - of the moon, of day and night, of the seasons. How to open ourselves up to the flow of the never-ending spirals we find in nature; in seeds, on the down-like hair of a baby’s head and in galactic formations. Having created PATTERNITY, she tries to live and work according to her own cycles, as a woman, a night-owl and someone who finds grounding and meaning in the annual cycles of the earth.  Made by Jo Barratt. Conceived by Jo Barratt and Gemma Mortensen, with Iris Andrews and Lily Piachaud. Music is made for New Constellations by Art School Girlfriend.

Om Podcasten

For millennia, across cultures and continents, we have looked to the stars to navigate when we are lost. Celestial bodies have exerted a magnetic pull over our lives and imaginations. In this era of transformation, in which everything is in flux, we are locked onto old stars that are pulling us in a perilous direction. We need to discover new stars, new possibilities, and reset our course. New Constellations exists to help people imagine and create a future in which humanity and the planet can flourish together; to find and illuminate new constellations of hope and possibility towards which we can orient our lives. We invite you to meet and journey with some of the many pioneering people and communities whose thinking, work and practice shines light on the way ahead. Join us and learn more at
