In general: I agree with what you said.

In specific:
- There is no relation between _where_ in the mundane world you perform the ceremony, and where you end up in the spirit world. - There is an more-or-less total relation between _what_ ritual you perform, and where you end up in the spirit world. - For any particular ritual, certain places may make the ritual much easier. These could be general holy spots, but can also be specific to the ritual. So in that regard there may be a relation between where the ritual is most often performed or most preferred to be performed and a place in the spirit world

All of the above with the understanding that 'place' and 'spirit world' don't entirely share a sentence comfortably, if I understand properly.
