Dr. Bill Brender practiced general surgery, plastic surgery and hand surgery from 1984 to 2013 in Glens Falls, NY and was triple board certified.  He is also an award winning artist. He discovered the old Fredella Quarry and scale house while snowshoeing behind his house on East Sanford St.  He felt a special spiritual energy coming from the site and fell in love with it. He has spent the last 10 years renovating the  property. The Quarry House retreat is a self-funded establishment to create community, embrace nature and celebrate life.

Dr. Bill is dedicating the remainder of his life to meditation and mindfulness.  He hopes that like minded people will come together to create a healing community that hopefully will help sustain our planet and help mankind last for the next thousand years.
