About Francis

Musician, shaman, and author Francis Rico Hayhurst combines ancient and modern shamanic wisdom with a irrepressible advocacy for having fun and enjoying life – assisting his clients, students and fellow adventurers in awakening to the gift of their lives.

“The beauty of wild creation, within us and surrounding us, can help us heal, and can bring happiness and real magic into our lives – we can become joyful and free!”

Rico’s new book, A Shaman’s Guide To Deep Beauty, shares stories and lessons from over 30 years of dedication to the shamanic pathways and teachers of indigenous wisdom traditions -including his gratitude for the gifts of the Toltec legacy and the mysterious beauty of Teotihuacan.

As a guide to the world’s sacred sites, Rico brings insight, humor and music along on every journey, opening the doorways of perception to opportunities for transformation and connection to the radiant essence of revelation to occur.

His home lies in Northern California, where he shares the beauty of the wild coastal mesas, cliffs, and ocean in support of his shamanic teaching, healing and counseling practices.
