Hello all - I thought you'd be interested in a series of videos uploaded to the Portland Friends of the Dhamma YouTube channel (which I personally maintain, if you have any comments or questions) featuring Ajaan Geoff / Thanissaro from his recent weekend non-residential retreat in late October 2017.

Visit our channel below and navigate to the "Monastic Dhamma Talks" playlist.
Lots of great stories and dhamma here! I was fortunate enough to attend part of it and had some assistance filming sessions I couldn't attend myself.

Right now, it's like this...

I have not found many videos of Ajahn Thanissaro (there are many talks and writings, though). Here is one where you can see the man himself as he speaks.
:anjali:
Knowing this body is like a clay jar,
securing this mind like a fort,
attack Mara with the spear of discernment,
then guard what's won without settling there,
without laying claim.

Not only Buddha discovered not-self!!!

I couldn’t live with myself any longer. And in this a question arose without an answer: who is the ‘I’ that cannot live with the self? What is the self? I felt drawn into a void! I didn’t know at the time that what really happened was the mind-made self, with its heaviness, its problems, that lives between the unsatisfying past and the fearful future, collapsed. It dissolved. The next morning I woke up and everything was so peaceful. The peace was there because there was no self. Just a sense of presence or "beingness," just observing and watching.

You can watch some of his talks in Youtube.

I've been listening to some of Ajahn Sona's talks during longish car trips and I quite like his style. He references the suttas and Dhamma teachings pretty often, with helpful commentary and practical tips from his own experience and practice.
