	For good reason. People confined to wheelchairs, or who have difficulty
walking, cannot attend many of the programs given at Wheaton.
Unfortunately, there is no place they can place a standard elevator, so
they must have a custom-made one installed. This costs money. One
alternative is to try to meditate an elevator into existence. Another is
to wait for someone with the proper sidhis to come along, and levitate
people who cannot climb stairs to the programs. The third was to try to
raise money to build an elevator (Kern Foundation grants may not be used
for the purpose of construction). If you have a better solution, I'm
sure that the people at Wheaton would be (seriously) happy to hear it.
