About The Author

Peter Canova is an international businessman who decided to write novels after undergoing a series of spiritual experiences that altered the course of his life. In the early 2000’s he won a Grand Literary Prize for his very first short story at the highly respected Santa Barbara Writer’s Conference. 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’s fictional series, The First Souls Trilogy is a saga about the first fall of spirit consciousness into material existence. The books have won 25 literary awards including Nautilus, Writer’s Digest, and Eric Hoffer. Peter has also been honored as a Chicken Soup for the Soul author.

Quantum Spirituality, Peter’s latest book, describes the origin, purpose, and destiny of humanity grounded on quantum science and an ancient universal spiritual tradition lost to the West for two thousand years. As an author and national speaker, he demonstrates how the Gnostic texts used myth—the narrative device of its time—to describe the Big Bang, Parallel Universes, Holographic Universe Theory, Einstein’s Relativity, and Jung’s theory of the unconscious mind. His conclusion is that one conscious intelligent force is responsible for all creation and the material world is a virtual simulation where humans are part of the infinite force that shapes material reality as we perceive it. Peter describes his work as a roadmap to help people gain experiences with higher consciousness. People have called Peter the real-life Robert Langdon after the main character of the Da Vinci Code. Like the fictional character, Peter is recovering and decoding the complexities of quantum physics and the secret wisdom of mystical texts such as the Kabbalah and the once-forbidden Gnostic Gospels. He does so in a manner few scholars have done before. His material is grounded in science spiritual wisdom and his own startling personal spiritual encounters.

Peter has been the subject of numerous radio and television interviews. He has appeared three times on the nationally popular Coast to Coast show with George Noory. He has been a keynote speaker at national events and appeared on stage with many noted personalities in the consciousness-raising field. He transforms these complex concepts into page-turning learning material making the information accessible to the average reader. He hopes that this knowledge will help people envision a new personal consciousness paradigm that transcends dogmatic religion and materialistic science.
