“You mean when I woke up one day and was anointed a cult leader? » Keegan said with a laugh on the podcast.

He also spoke about the beginnings of Full Circle, adding that he was living in Venice Beach at the time and became “immersed in the culture and community.”

“There was this interesting group of hippie types, if you will, in Venice. I’m sure if you’ve been to the west side, there’s definitely a lot of spirituality,” Keegan added.

“I was in contact with some people and we had this opportunity. This old Hare Krishna temple was empty and we were like, ‘Why don’t we get a few people together and open this place?'” Keegan said.

“Looking back, it was crazy. I was putting down tens of thousands of dollars, but we opened it and had three years and really built an incredible group of friends,” Keegan said.

He added, “We went through something really important between 2014 and 2017,” before discussing the high-profile Vice article.

The profile called Full Circle a “temple and spiritual movement,” although members insisted it was not a cult.

Keegan insisted: “I probably should have had a bit more media training back then. They just really created a very interesting and colorful story and put it together…we really came together and did a Sunday thing.
