About Peter Canova
For the past 30 years, Peter Canova has researched mainstream and alternative religious/spiritual studies, along with quantum physics. He is considered one of America’s foremost authorities on the secret teachings of the Gnostic Gospels and the Sacred Feminine, and is the acclaimed author of the newly released spiritual thriller, Pope Annalisa, the winner of five awards in 2010, including the Nautilus Gold Award for visionary fiction formerly bestowed on such authors as Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, and the Dalai Lama.
From the time he first experienced phenomena such as telepathy, remote viewing, intuitive medical readings, and psychic healing, Peter Canova has spent much of his life seeking to understand the forces that link humanity together at an unseen level.
Peter’s former businesses—luxury hotel development, shipping, and import/exporting—carried him around the world, giving him an insider’s view of international politics, finance, and the mentality of foreign cultures. Athens, Rome, London, the Middle East, Thailand, and Africa were the crucibles that melded business, political, and economic intrigues in Peter’s experience, giving him real life stories that could make best sellers in and of themselves.
In each of these venues, Peter also met a variety of spiritual figures, all of whom appeared in his life unsolicited and confirmed his conviction that spirit transcends the religious beliefs that tend to divide people.
Peter had an affinity for writing, and in the late 1990’s he acted on this talent winning a First Literary Prize for his very first short story at the highly respected Santa Barbara’s Writer’s Conference in California. Shortly thereafter, he took first place out of 500 entries in Francis Ford Coppola’s online Zoetrope magazine for his first publicly circulated short story, The Blood of our Departed.
Peter continued his track record of writing excellence with the publication of Pope Annalisa, which immediately won the Nautilus and Independent Publishers Awards in quick succession followed by the National Best Book Award. In Pope Annalisa, he explores an ancient spiritual tradition which cut across not only Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but also the so-called pagan mystery schools of ancient days.
Peter has twenty-five years of voluminous research behind him in both mainstream and alternative religious/spiritual studies, with a particular interest in early Christianity. He is a leading expert on Gnostic and other ancient spiritual traditions. He travels the country as a speaker on such topics as parallels between Gnostic mysticism and quantum physics, the Sacred Feminine, Mary Magdalene and the lost women of the Bible, and the secret teachings of Jesus. His skills helped him break down these complex spiritual themes into simple and entertaining fiction. Pope Annalisa was a combination of this research and information channeled in his own meditations.
His hope is that this cross-over novel, part thriller and part spiritual wisdom text, will point to a new paradigm transcending the dead end dogmas of religious, cultural and gender differences that have caused so much suffering in the human community.
I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Canova and he is definitely high energy, full of wonderful insights and a unique perspective on life in general. I think that you all are going to really enjoy this man’s work, his book and this interview! So please be sure to tune in Tuesday Night 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight!
