Return to your rest, O My Soul (Ps 116:7)



Otium, a Latin abstract term, can refer to leisure time when one can enjoy eating, playing, and contemplation. It is a sporadic, temporary time to rest and prepare for intellectual, academic, and virtuous endeavors.


Otium seeks to encourage and enrich homeschooling families in Central Contra Costa County and the Tri-Valley. The goal is to cultivate lasting Christian friendships through sharing, play, and adventure.
