The Gathering Paths

Friday - Sunday, August 5th - 7th

DoubleTree Hotel San Jose, CA

Thank you to all our attendees, presenters, vendors, sponsors, staff, and volunteers for your participation and support! What an amazing weekend! We could not have done it without you. We look forward to what will come in the next year and seeing you all very soon.



If you were an attendee and have a moment, please consider helping us to improve. Let us know what you enjoyed and what you felt could use more work by filling out our event feedback form.

Between the Veils hosts an inclusive interfaith conference, The Gathering Paths, that brings together people of many spiritual paths including but not limited to earth-based, pagan, polytheist, Native and/or indigenous, diasporic, occult, and magical based practices.

The Gathering Paths offers a wide range of workshops, from presenters and teachers around the world; communal rituals; a vendor room with artisanal crafts; hospitality suites; networking events; and ways to stay connected once the conference is over. Our goal is to offer a safe and empowered space where folks can deepen their spiritual practice, connection to community, and access to learning.

The daily fee at the hotel is $14 per car for conference attendees.


No vaping, smoking, candles, incense, or combustible of any kind are allowed inside the hotel walls including outdoor areas such as balconies and patios.  The heat and smoke detectors in the hotel are excellent. They will enforce this restriction with a $300 cleaning fee on any room where smoke or vaping of any kind has been used.

There is an outdoor smoking area outside the main entrance across from the lawn area. There is an additional outside smoking area and a pop-up in the parking lot outside the elevator lobby. We ask that you use these areas and do not smoke anywhere near the main entrances to the hotel, not even if you are more than 25 feet away.  Because we are sharing the hotel with the general public lots of people will be smoking in places that they shouldn't. Please set a good example and only use the designated smoking areas.
