Chodo session

Robert Chodo Campbell leads a meditation session at the Robert Mapplethorpe Residential Treatment Facility, part of Beth Israel’s AIDS treatment program. During the session, he massaged patients' heads and described a scenario where they imagined themselves as birds that could dive into water and bring up a pearl. The patients included George Smith, left, and Anthony Jackson, right.
