My local coven is going to be losing our founding Coven Head in the next 7 months (dang med school and relocation!!), and we are contemplating what the coven should look like afterward.

We have had one High Priestess/leader since 2006, and we are considering whether to continue with one Coven Head, or to have two leaders when we transition.

I am curious to get imput from those of you who have experience in this from either side: How does having 2 leaders work? It seems to me that if you have 2 leaders there is always one person that becomes dominant. Is it possible to actually have a completely 50-50 working relationship? Also, if the co-leaders do not live in the same town how does that affect things (our coven draws people from a 2 hour drive radius)?

What are the pros and cons of either being a co-leader, or being co-lead? What are the important things to consider?

Thank you for your contemplation!

The local group that I am a part of (and co-lead) has always had 3 or 4 co-leaders. This helps with voting and keeping one person from becoming dominant. It has always worked well for us. We enjoy harmony. We are not a coven though. We are simply a local eclectic group of Pagans and friends. I am not sure if there is a reason a coven couldn't have 3 or more co-leaders.
