The following non-WCF Chan groups are known to us, and are listed here so that you may contact them if you wish.
Usually at least one of the group members is a member or supporter of the WCF, but maybe other group members follow Buddhist traditions other than Chan or Zen. These groups are independent of the WCF, though based on our mutual interest in Chan Buddhism we maintain friendly supportive links.
