Gaiamancy is one of the most ancient disciplines of Thaumaturgy known. it is one of the most powerful, allowing for the manipulation of earth and stone based power. The practitioners of this art are exceptionally rare, as those that once used it have died off. However, it is not extinct. This discipline is sometimes called Earth Magic.
Practitioners tend to be more powerful when touching the ground, thus, many choose avoid wearing shoes, and sometimes carry small stones or bags of soil to assist them in their casting. Likewise when separated from the earth their power fades, especially as distance from the soil increases.
