This is one of the more unusual “Where are they now?” stories I’ve heard in a while: Andrew Keegan, of 10 Things I Hate About You and Seventh Heaven fame, recently founded a new religion called Full Circle.
“Synchronicity. Time. That’s what it’s all about. Whatever, the past, some other time. It’s a circle; in the center is now. That’s what it’s about,” Andrew, now 35, told Vice. He later added, “We’re very, very aware of the shift that’s happening in the mind and the heart, and everybody is on that love agenda… There’s power in the crystals, there’s power in our hearts, there’s an alignment, there’s a resonance… And it transfers through water.”
The actual Full Circle worship center was established in Venice Beach in May, but Andrew said his religious awakening happened after he was jumped in 2011. As he began to express his new beliefs, he attracted a group of followers — although all insist Full Circle isn’t a cult and there’s a “lot of creative latitude.”
Andrew, who has the ultimate say with group decisions, said the goal of Full Circle is to “promote the individual becoming truly themselves outside of defined boundaries.”
According to the group website, they are “artivists, thought-leaders, professionals and teachers… fulfilling our dreams of making a positive difference.” There is a 10-person “Passion Team” and a board of advisors, which consists of three couples, a parrot and a dog who “can teach us all a thing or two about living a well-balanced lifestyle.”
