Specifically Discalced Carmelites :)
And also, I have questions about them, do they go out the monastery unlike the nuns? Do they always wear the habit? Do they have to stay in a monastery? Do they also abstain from meat like the nuns? And can you describe their spirituality?
Yes, they "go out" since they are not monks or bound to observe the enclosure as the nuns are. Still, though, they would have part of their "monastery" that is part of the "cloister" and is not open to the public.
Always wear the habit? Literally, no. Some wear it nearly all the time they are out of their room or the shower. Others don't wear it as much. This will depend on the province since some are more "observant" in this regard than are others.
Generally, a friar is part of a community. This is typically called a monastery but, since they are not monks but are friars, it is more properly called a friary or convent.
There is usually meat served. It can be difficult, in some parts of the world, to not eat meat and I know that not all the nuns abstain. The Rule says the Carmelite is to eat what is placed before him. So, it can also depend on the donations a community receives.
Spirituality--that's a long story. A Catholic encyclopedia might give you a good start.
The Friars have a central website: discalcedcarmel.com/
The Nuns, since they are autonomous monasteries, do not have a centralized site.
