Connecting the Dots is about my lifelong quest to integrate and make whole all the conscious and unconscious forces and feelings I have experienced and learned from. While one result is my book, I hope this website will be another. One where you and other fellow seekers find more answers than questions.


Lia Russ was born high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in a town so small that only 3 other children were born that year.  Perhaps because of the sparseness of human population and the vastness of the natural world, Lia learned to open her senses to connect with the energies of everything around her.  However, she became uncomfortable when, at age ten, she moved to Westchester County, New York, where she immediately felt removed from its huge human population. She’s devoted her life to understanding the things that she saw and felt around her, that no one else seemed aware of.

 Lia loves nature, animals, solving mysteries, writing, creating art and dancing. She has traveled extensively in the United States, and Asia and currently lives in upstate New York with her boyfriend, two dogs, two cats, two parrots and many plants. Lia collects strays, crystals, and dots.
