Sonja Gobec – From Advertising to Maharishi Vedic Science
Sonja Gobec received her BA in history from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and her executive MBA from Cotrugli Business School in Zagreb, Croatia. She has worked as a flight attendant, travel agent, and most recently as the Slovenian branch director of a company specializing in on-train advertising.
Although she was successful, her high-pressure advertising job left her unfulfilled on a personal level. When she learned the Transcendental Meditation® technique in 2009, her life changed. She attended advanced lectures in her local Transcendental Meditation Center, and became interested in Maharishi Vedic ScienceSM. “The knowledge seemed so real to me, finally things started to make sense,” said Sonja. “It was the most fascinating knowledge I had ever heard.”
When her branch was closed and she lost her job in 2011, she wanted to do something completely different. She visited MUM’s website and she knew she had to come. “I saw what TM did to me, how it changed me, and how many benefits I have gained, so I was very passionate about it,” Sonja said.
She missed the 2011 fall entry into the MA in Maharishi Vedic Science program but she couldn’t wait another year. She came in January 2012 and took undergraduate courses in Maharishi Vedic Science, then began the master’s program 6 months later.
“MUM is everything I expected and more,” Sonja said. “There are a lot of people like me and they are searching for the same thing. I find Consciousness-Based education at MUM very fulfilling because it is putting the emphasis on the student, and it is supporting my spiritual and personal development at a maximum.”
Sonja is graduating this June, but she feels her thirst for knowledge is far from being quenched. She is interested in learning Maharishi Ayurveda®, completing her PhD in Maharishi Vedic Science, and becoming a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
