Actor Andrew Keegan, who starred in 1999’s “10 Things I Hate About You,” has founded his own religion.
The mission of the church is to "take war out of our story, which is essentially peace, but activated peace."
According to the Huffington Post, the former teen heartthrob started the “spiritual movement,” called Full Circle, after he and two friends were attacked by alleged gang members in Venice Beach in 2011.
“The significance of this occurrence is that it happened at the same time the tsunami hit Japan," Keegan said.
The “synchronicity” of these two things, along with “a series of odd events” led him on a different path.
“I had a moment where I was looking at a street lamp and it exploded. That was a weird coincidence,” said Keegan. “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.”
The Full Circle website describes itself as a "Co-creative Collective, activating a next-level human experience."
"We are artivists, thought-leaders, professionals and teachers…fulfilling our dreams of making a positive difference."
Vice reports that the goal of the church is “to promote the individual becoming truly themselves outside of defined boundaries.”
Keegan explained how he named the movement: “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."
