Remember Andrew Keegan? Well, He Started a Religion

What's the cast of the teen comedy doing now?
Back in 1999, Andrew Keegan was an up and coming actor, co-starring in the popular teen flick 10 Things I Hate About You, alongside co-stars Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the late Heath Ledger.

Now, Keegan is the founder and leader of a “spiritual movement,” called Full Circle

Andrew Keegan in 10 Things I Hate About You.

The handsome 35-year-old Party of Five actor says he created the cult collective to provide a destination where its members can “creatively expand consciousness through visual and performing arts, movement classes, workshops, forums and healing therapies.”

That destination is located in Venice Beach, California in a building which, according to Vice magazine, used to host a Protestant congregation, then a Hare Krishna temple, followed by an offshoot of Christian fundamentalism.

Now, it is home to Keegan and his followers. One of whom is Keggan’s girlfriend, Leah Santa Cruz. She and Keegan told Vice that theirgoal is to promote the individual becoming truly themselves outside of defined boundaries.” Mmmkay.

Keegan founded Full Circle after a violent street attack in 2011. While he only received stitches in the melee, it appears the incident was truly life-altering for the former actor.

Check out this promotional (I think?) video from Full Circle’s web site.

I don’t completely know what it’s all about – peace, love and happiness?

I dig the song though.
