Living Gandhi's Message In Inner City Oakland

Francisco ("Pancho") Ramos-Stierle's life changed abruptly when he learned that the university where he was pursuing his PhD was working with an outside laboratory to develop next generation nuclear weapons.

I soon found that it involved quieting the mind so that it can hear what the heart says.
