From 90s teen movie heartthrob to...spiritual guru?

Andrew Keegan, who starred in films such as 10 Things I Hate About You and Camp Nowhere, has launched his own Venice Beach, California-based spiritual movement called Full Circle.

According to The Huffington Post, Keegan decided to start the church after a series of events, including a gang attack on two friends, which guided him down a path of peace and spiritualism.

The 35-year-old's mission with Full Circle is to "take war out of our story, which is essentially peace, but activated peace."

“I had a moment where I was looking at a street lamp and it exploded. That was a weird coincidence,” Keegan told Vice about the moment that sparked the idea for his movement.

“At a ceremony, a heart-shaped rose quartz crystal was on the altar, and synchronistically, this whole thing happened. It’s a long story, but basically the crystal jumped off the altar and skipped on camera. That was weird.”

Full Circle's website cites that it is "home of a conscious social movement, we provide an experiential environment designed to creatively expand consciousness through visual and performing arts, movement classes, workshops, forums and healing therapies."

“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,” Keegan told Vice about naming his movement Full Circle.
