Saturday tour of the Monastery was very informative to this novice. Fostered further inquiry and reading. My husband participated in an introductory meditation session that was helpful. Bookshop is extraordinary and staff is very helpful and obviously informed. There is free parking.

Sorry, I don't know their schedule. I'd suggest you contact them directly. It seems the timing of some of their events are fluid.

Can't remember but relatively early. The grounds are sort of open, and there is a board on the outside of the bookstore with hours for the temples.
